We all know that any food that is green (naturally) is good for you.....remember your mom telling you to eat those vegetables.....
Alfalfa is chock full of green stuff!
And this is an easy way to get those greens in everyday! You can use alfalfa leaves to make a nice soothing tea flavored with an orange peel, mint or honey. You can buy alfalfa sprouts from most grocery stores and add it to salads and sandwiches, or you can take it in capsule form.
It can also be used to:
• treat urinary tract infections
• treat bladder infections
• treat kidney infections
A side effect of alfalfa can occur if you are on blood thinners. Since green leafy foods help to clot your blood, which is natural, it wouldn't be a good idea to take alfalfa and a blood thinning agent at the same time.
To get your milk flowing, take 3 capsules 3 times a day.
