Clean Out Your System and Lose Weight With Alfalfa
can make a unique tonic or tea with very interesting history. It was first given to Arabian racing horses as food.
When the Arabians discovered how swift and strong their horses were becoming after drinking the great herbal tonic, they decided to eat it as well!
After this, the herb became known as "The Father of all Foods", and for a good reason. It contains Vitamins A,E,K,B,D; iron; sodium; silicon; magnesium; phosphorus; and beta carotene. These essential amino acids give your body the energy it needs to go throughout daily life.
Weight Loss With Tea
I know the main reason someone would be looking at this page is as an aide in weight loss, so i'll get right to it!
It is a natural laxative which in turn reduces water retention, improves digestion, keeps your intestinal tract in tip-top shape, and cleans out your system. (Literally!)Read more about making the tea here.
If you ever heard of or tried those "detox systems" (most of which actually DO work, by the way) you'll notice that alfalfa is usually one of the main ingredients.
Weight loss comes easier in 2 ways. First, it cleans out your entire digestive tract and tightens it up, which improves the entire process. For people with bad digestion, they commonly have a "loose" digestive tract and not everything comes out, leaving you with extra weight and no energy. This simple herbal weight loss strategy really works!
Increased Energy Levels
Second, by getting everything cleaned out and working properly, you will notice having much more energy which means that your body will be burning more calories. This is in turn results in weight loss.
Natural Vitamin K
This herb also gives you an ample supply of Vitamin K, a vitamin critical for blood clotting, carbohydrate storage, liver vitality, and longevity.
Although Vitamin K is found in many foods, it is often eliminated in the body due to aspirin, alcohol, drugs, or any antibiotics.
In people with intestinal disorders, their bodies may be reducing the bodies ability to naturally make Vitamin K. Since this great herbal remedy helps to eliminate intestinal problems, I think we have a problem solved!
Note: If you have any type of autoimmune disorder, it is recommended that you don't take alfalfa as a tonic or tea. If you would like the benefits it gives but can't take it, feel free to e-mail me and I'll work with you to find something that will go hand-in-hand with your needs.
