- Also contained
in the foliage are Vitamins B6, D, E and U, along with beta carotene and also
several essential enzymes.
The primary function of Vitamin K is its role in the blood clotting mechanism and
it is therefore valuable for protecting against haemorrhage in some individuals.
Alfalfa is also valuable for relieving digestive upsets such as indigestion and overacidity.
It also helps to maintain healthy gut walls and acts as an appetite stimulant.
These gastric benefits are attributed to its Vitamin U content.
