The word Alfalfa comes from an Arabic phrase meaning “father of all foods”. Alfalfa is high in B-vitamins, as well as vitamins A, D, E, and K. Alfalfa leaf contains iron, niacin, biotin, folic acid, calcium, magnesium, phosphorus, and potassium. This leaf is also very high in protein and amino acids. When taken internally, alfalfa helps detox the urinary tract, promotes alkalinity in the body, eases digestive problems, and may help lower cholesterol as well as regulate blood sugar levels.
Magickally, alfalfa leaf is also known as Buffalo herb. It is most commonly used in money and prosperity spiritual workings. It is also believed to ward off poverty and hunger when burned.
