Surprise Item: Alfalfa Sprouting Seeds
The sprout of the alfalfa flower seed is full of health benefits — all while low in calories and high in vitamins and minerals. Different parts of the alfalfa plant have varied uses and effects. In traditional Chinese medicine, fresh alfalfa juice is used to treat kidney stones, while the plant root is said to control fevers and improve jaundice. Alfalfa leaves contain saponin ‘ a compound that might have a cholesterol-lowering effect. Alfalfa is generally safe in its natural form. However, the amino acid L-canavanine, found in alfalfa seeds and sprouts, has been shown to trigger lupus flare-ups in patients with a history of the disease. Alfalfa supplements are also not advised during pregnancy.
