Alfalfa Extract Powder (Medicago sativa) is an herb that develops purple and yellow flowers and has been used for centuries for its health supporting qualities. It is less commonly known as lucerne or buffalo grass. Alfalfa (Medicago sativa) is native to warmer temperate climates and is common in South Indian cuisine.
Our raw, non-GMO, alfalfa extract powder is a complete, well rounded source of vitamins and minerals that may be extremely beneficial to the body. The leaves of this amazing plant contain eight amino acids as well as calcium, zinc, magnesium, potassium, sodium, phosphorus, iron sulfides, choline and beta-carotene. Alfalfa grass is possibly an excellent source of Vitamins A, B, D, C, E and K. Alfalfa Grass may be rich in saponins, phytoestrogen and antioxidants.
Alfalfa Juice Powder should not be confused with regular Alfalfa Leaf extract. Alfalfa herb powder is made by first juicing the alfalfa grass and removing all of the cellulose so a pure juice concentrate is left. The juice is then dehydrated into a powder. In contrast, whole Alfalfa Leaf Powder is made by drying the entire grass leaf and then milling it into a fine powder.

In many cultures, especially those to which alfalfa is native, women often have consumed the herb to promote increased production of breast milk. The sprouts contain phytoestrogens, saponins and an amino acid L-canavanine which have been known to stimulate increased production of breast milk in the alternative medical literature. Traditional scientific evidence is scanty but some amounts of alfalfa are found in some milk enhancing powders and mixture.
Alfalfa herb powder have been proven highly beneficial for lowering one’s ‘bad’ or LDL cholesterol. One of the first studies conducted in Europe in the 1990s over a 6-week period found that the average reduction in LDL cholesterol was by 16.6% while at the same time, the ‘good’ or HDL cholesterol spiked up by 11.2%. Another study conducted in 2016 on a group of 15 people gave similar results with bad cholesterol reducing by 18%. Many animal studies have also shown similar effects.
Alfalfa extract powder is a natural diuretic. Diuretics are sometimes called water pills because they trigger an increased excretion of water and salts. This also releases sodium in the urine. Diuretic action has been known to help in clearing uric acid (kidney stones) that can get developed in some people and can cause enormous pain. Once again, there is a scarcity of human trials and promising research in the area and much use of alfalfa for removing kidney stones is found in the alternative literature.
Alfalfa herb powder improve metabolic health and reduce blood sugar content. As previously discussed, since alfalfa sprouts are known to lower the blood cholesterol, they provide a number of metabolic benefits. A study conducted in diabetic mice found that alfalfa stabilizes the blood sugar levels through a different mechanism. This mechanism causes an increased release of the hormone insulin from the pancreas into the bloodstream. This causes the lowering of blood sugar levels. Even in traditional and native societies such as Native American and Indian cultures, alfalfa has been abundantly used to keep the blood sugar levels in check.
The abundance of phytonutrients in the alfalfa sprouts has brought to light yet another benefit which can help the menopausal women. Menopause is a testing time for a lot of women due to massive changes in the hormonal profile of a post-middle-aged woman. Consuming some amounts of alfalfa sprouts can be beneficial to reducing hot flashes, promoting improved sleep quality, and reducing night sweats in menopausal women. In a pioneering study conducted on 30 women almost 2 decades earlier, it was found that alfalfa extract entirely removed hot flashes both in the day and the night. Another recent study conducted in 2011 on breast cancer survivors found out that some experienced sleep of higher quality when consuming alfalfa.
One benefit of alfalfa extract powder that helps make the herb/legume relevant to many more chronic diseases is its well-proven antioxidant activity. The caveat being that most of the studies done to prove the antioxidant potential have been conducted on animals. Consuming alfalfa leaf extract over time is touted to reduce the number of free radicals in the body and thus providing long term benefits in terms of decreasing the inflammation. A lot of chronic diseases have been found to have a positive correlation with chronic and long-term inflammation. Therefore, reducing free radicals and hence inflammation can in theory be beneficial for preventing diseases like Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, cancer, diabetes and heart disease.
