Kenali Alfalfa

Kita dah biasa dengar alfalfa… Ya ia adalah sejenis tumbuhan yang membanyakkan susu badan. Tapi, apakah alfalfa ni sebenarnya?

Alfalfa adalah sejenis herba purba yang dah digunakan di negara China 2000 tahun sebelum Masihi. Lama kan? Alfalfa berasal dari bahasa Arab bermaksud – raja segala tumbuhan. Ia sebenarnya sejenis tumbuhan yang berupa rumput (herba adalah tumbuhan tidak berkayu). Kalau di supermarket kita biasa jumpa alfalfa sprout (cambah), akan tetapi yang bernilai dalam bidang perubatan adalah bahagian daunnya.


Daun alfalfa banyak kegunaannya. Bahagian inilah yang digunakan dalam Shaklee Alfalfa Complex.
