Alfalfa

Alfalfa Herbal Tea - Natural Remedies for your Health

Alfalfa, or lucerne, is most used as animal feed but is equally nutritious for humans, since it contains considerable levels of protein, vitamins C, E, K, magnesium, calcium, and beta-carotene. Traditionally it has been used as a natural food supplement for debility and convalescence, aiding appetite and weight gain.
