Herb of the Month: Alfalfa

Posted by TriLight Health on Jan 30th 2024

"Isn't that horse food?" This is the most common reaction people give to hearing Alfalfa is used by herbalists. What is even more surprising to folks is what a nutrient-dense power house this herb is. It contains almost every major vitamin and mineral.  Check out this post on what vitamins/minerals are found in herbs and you'll see Alfalfa under 17 different categories! This is a go-to herb for nearly every system in the body and every nutritional need. It's also a rare herbal source of protein. Herbalists often add a little Alfalfa to a preparation simply to boost the nutrient content.
