Happy tea time Tuesday ladies!
Today I decided to do the post a bit different. Instead of showing a delicious cup of tea, I decided to show a picture of the herb itself. So lets get started shall we!.
Here we have another great tasting and very beneficial herb. This Alfalfa herb has been called the “king of plants” since it is extremely rich in vitamins and minerals. It is quite popular as a blood purifier and as a cure for all rheumatism.
The name alfalfa means "Father of all Foods." Extremely rich in Iron, calcium, potassium, and many others. Aids in preventing tooth decay. And A good source of carotene (Vitamin A) and a little known vitamin – Vitamin K, the blood clotting vitamin which has been known to help peptic ulcers.
Great for :
and many others!
The alfalfa herb is also very high in:
and many others!
It has been known to help in the fight against :
It is also said that people using antibiotics, such as amoxcillin, gentamicin, and the likes can benefit from this herb as it helps in restoring levels of vitamin K which is depleted when using antibiotics.
This herb is very dark green in color. The texture reminds me of Grass. And can also be used for cooking. This herb can be used by all, including children.
I really enjoy the taste, it has a very smooth taste. I like to drink it hot while adding a little Peppermint and top it off with a few drops of lemon. In fact I am enjoying a cup as I am typing. This tea is one of my favorites it is loaded with so many Vitamins.
*** Do refrain from using this herb if you are on blood thinners, or pregnant.***
