Vitamin K is critical in blood clotting, so Alfalfa may have some use in improving clotting. It also contains trace minerals such as calcium, magnesium, iron, phosphorous, and potassium. The plant is so rich in calcium that the ashes of its leaves are almost 99% pure calcium. Alfalfa is also higher in protein than many other plant foods.
