Legumes such as alfalfa have been widely studied for their health-promoting components. Alfalfa contains chemical compounds known as saponins, which provide vital support to the immune system. Saponins have been proven to lower cholesterol, reduce the risk of developing cancer, and lower blood pressure.
Alfalfa contains dense vitamins and antioxidants, including vitamin C, vitamin E, vitamin B, and calcium. Antioxidant compounds directly reduce inflammation throughout the body, alleviating symptoms of chronic joint pain, respiratory stress, and oxidative stress.

Many North Americans lack sufficient fiber in their everyday diet. Both soluble and insoluble fiber is abundant in superfood greens such as alfalfa, which aids in digestive health.

Another great benefit of increasing your fiber intake is improved energy and reduced risk of cardiovascular disease.
One of the main reasons superfoods burst onto the health food scene is their powerful detoxification abilities, and alfalfa is not different. Alfalfa has diuretic properties, which aids in the treatment of kidney conditions and speeds up the detoxification process, eliminating toxins and pathogens from the body.
Alfalfa has been studied for its anti-cancer properties, due to the phytoestrogen content found in this green. Phytoestrogens are hormones that has potent antioxidant capabilities, fighting off free radical cells that lead to cancer cell growth. Phytoestrogens also bind to carcinogen compounds, aiding in effective detoxification and reduced risk of cancer and tumor growth.
Legumes are recommended to support heart health, and alfalfa is rich in heart healthy nutrients such as iron and potassium. Potassium works to lower blood pressure, and iron is essential for stimulating red blood cell production and oxygen circulation. Increasing alfalfa intake effectively strengthens the heart while preventing cardiovascular related illnesses, and can improve energy and endurance.
The powerful anti-inflammatory properties of alfalfa also directly influence respiratory health. Antioxidants called flavonoids are abundant in alfalfa, and these compounds reduce inflammation related to respiratory illnesses including the common cold, influenza, bronchitis, and asthma.
