Alfalfa Is A Natural Source Of A Wide Range Of Nutrients

Alfalfa, also known as lucerne in other areas of the world, has been used for a variety of purposes since ancient times, including by the Persians, Greeks, and Romans. It is also commonly featured as an integrative component of Indian cuisine. Now, natural and health wellness practitioners utilize the plant in several contexts due to its abundance of important nutrients and healing properties.

The Nutrients Found in Alfalfa

The plant is a rich source of nutrients that humans rely on for proper physiological function, including:

  • Phosphorous
  • Magnesium
  • Copper
  • Iron
  • Zinc
  • Chlorine
  • Potassium
  • Calcium
  • Trace Minerals

In the age of processed food and on-the-go snacking, many of us do not get nearly enough of these essential nutrients in our diet. This plant packs them into a small, easy-to-eat package that can quickly supply us with enough of these to meet our dietary intake goals for optimal health.

Alfalfa Lowers Cholesterol

Cholesterol is necessary for good health, but too much of a good thing can be bad. Many Americans suffer from abnormally high cholesterol levels that increase the risk of serious cardiovascular events like heart attack or stroke. Just as importantly, many of us do not have the appropriate ratio of HDL (the good cholesterol) to LDL (the "bad" cholesterol) – an equally important measurement of health alongside total cholesterol counts. The plant is shown to reduce harmful cholesterol levels in both human and animal studies. The plant's cholesterol-lowering properties are due to its high content of saponins, beneficial chemical compounds found in alfalfa and other plants.

Managing Blood Sugar

Diabetic and pre-diabetic patients must carefully monitor their blood sugar levels. Even for non-diabetics, the plant has potent benefits for metabolism. For example, the plant has been shown to reduce blood sugar spikes by mediating the release of insulin by the pancreas.

Alfalfa for Menopause

The phytoestrogens found in plants, which mimic the estrogen produced in a woman's ovaries, can have profound positive impacts on menopause symptoms in women. One study of the plant administered to women experiencing menopause found that, for all the participants in the study, alfalfa eliminated night sweats and hot flashes, two of the most common menopause symptoms.

Potential as an Antioxidant

Oxidative stress is a prominent factor in the development of chronic disease. Antioxidants such as those found in the plant can lower the impacts of oxidative stress by preventing cell and DNA damage – a proven activity of alfalfa's compounds inside the body. This remarkable plant, in summary, contains an array of important nutrients and other compounds that have disease-fighting properties.
