OVERVIEW:

Alfalfa is extremely nutritious and is very high in protein and amino acids. As a nutritious food, the herb is mild in flavor and works well in salads, soups, casseroles, or more. The tastes are sweet, bitter, and earthy. It is energetically cooling. It makes a pleasant tasting, balancing tea that melds very nicely with mint and lemon. Ayurvedic medicine has used alfalfa leaf to relieve water retention, arthritis, and ulcers.
