Alfalfa leaf is known for its nutritious qualities. This flowering perennial is a member of the pea family and is cultivated worldwide. Medicago sativa has been used as a healthful tonic in American folk herbalism, a culinary food in India, and as digestive support in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). Our organic alfalfa leaf can be infused as alfalfa tea, added to herbal vinegars, and incorporated into soups and stews.
Well known as a feed plant for livestock, alfalfa has a rich tradition of other uses. In traditional American folk medicine, it has been administered as a nutritive tonic. The dried alfalfa leaf is widely available in herbal shops and health food stores as an herbal tea, tablet, or powder. The seed is often sprouted and eaten in salads and sandwiches.
