An important alfalfa fact

Posted by Valley View Animal Feeds on May 9, 2016 at 5:30 PM

An important alfalfa fact would be its power packed nutritional constituents. This would include minerals and vitamins, choline, organic acids, free amino acids, non-protein amino acids (example canavinine), strachydrine, coumarins, isoflavonoids, saponins and steroids such as b-sitosterol, campesterol, stigamsterol, etc. Alfalfa also contains vitamins A, B, C, D, E and K, chlorophyll and carotene, as well as minerals such as potassium, calcium, and magnesium. Pure Alfalfa leaves and stems are also a rich source of  L-lysine (omega-3 fatty acids) and aid in combating deficiency of the same.

''An interesting alfalfa fact lies in the language origin of the name

 

of the plant. Etymologically, its name is derived from

 

“al-fac-facah”, which means “father of all foods” in Arabic.''
