WholisticMatters invites you to see what amazing nutrients are contained in a bite of alfalfa, a perennial flowering legume widely grown across the world. The sprouts and whole plant material can be used to deliver essential nutrients and phytoactive compounds, like:
- Manganese, an essential mineral incorporated in enzymes that metabolize macronutrients; manganese helps protect mitochondria from oxidation and forms both collagen and cartilage
- Biotin, a B vitamin necessary for energy metabolism, histone modification, gene regulation, and cell signaling
- Riboflavin, a B vitamin vital for energy production, cell function, metabolism, and growth and development
- and much more
