Bad Cholesterol? Try Alfalfa Tea
Botanical Name: Medicago Sativa
Common Names: Lucerne, Lucerne grass
Form: Loose Leaf
Alfalfa (Medicago sativa) has been used in traditional Chinese medicine for over a thousand years. Alfalfa has shown great promise in the treatment of high cholesterol. It is thought that the fibers in alfalfa stick to the "bad" cholesterol and prevent it from depositing in blood vessels. The "good" cholesterol however, is unaffected by alfalfa.
Alfalfa is a good laxitive and a natural diuretic (promotes the loss of water from the body) and as such Alfalfa relieves fluid retention and swelling. Alfalfa also enhances the immune system function and helps during menopause.
Instructions for use
Use 1-2 teaspoons per serve. Brew in a pot of boiled water for ten minutes, strain and pour. Add sweetener as needed. Suitable for use in paper tea filters.
If you’re not already sweet enough – why not sweeten your mix with a little Stevia Powder.
