Alfalfa: Nature’s Antihistamine & Mineral Support

Did you know that alfalfa is one of nature’s own antihistamines? So what is an antihistamine anyway?

They are “drugs that inhibit the action of histamine in the body by blocking the receptors of histamine. There are two types of histamine receptors H1 and H2. When H1 receptors are stimulated by histamine it may produce allergic reactions such as itching, hay fever and rash or hives.”

So, antihistamines are used to treat allergic reactions. Some types may cause drowsiness and some do not. Although, when I used to take antihistamines found in such products like Benadryl and Claritin, both did cause drowsiness even though they were labeled as non-drowsy.

One new thing I discovered is that alfalfa is one of nature’s antihistamines.

I was having sinus and allergy issues and I did not want to take any drug antihistamines and wasn’t sure what would be a good natural solution. When I learned that alfalfa was such an antihistamine, I gave it a try. After only taking some samples given by my Business Leader, I already see an improvement in the sinus pressure and swollen glands.

One interesting fact about alfalfa is that its roots go down as deep as 20 feet. That’s very deep for a plant, but very special for this one—because those deep taproots search out nutrients and other minerals “from deposits in the soil while its leaves gather large amounts of chlorophyll through the natural process of photosynthesis.” (Source: Shaklee, 2013) The alfalfa plant is small and green flowering and is one of the most health-packed plants and gifts to us by God through nature.

The alfalfa plant is packed with vitamins and antioxidants. It is a plant which is grown around the world and in many places is used as feed for animals. “Alfalfa contains every single known vitamin such as calcium, as well as many vitamins in the B and C group just to name a few. Phosphorus, potassium, magnesium, and calcium are all contained in these leaves as well, packing an extremely powerful nutritional punch.”

The leaves of the alfalfa plant are filled with eight essential amino acids and this causes the plant to be a great source of protein. The alfalfa plant leaves can be eaten raw or even made into a nutritional tea. Check out the Alfalfa Complex from The Shaklee Store. This supplement is deeply rooted nutrition and is a vital source of nutrients for our health.
