- Protect the Heart: Potassium and iron are both found in significant supply within alfalfa, and these benefit the heart in different ways. Potassium is a vasodilator which helps to lower blood pressure by releasing the tension on blood vessels and arteries. Furthermore, the iron content of these sprouts boosts red blood cell production, thus improving circulation and ensuring that the body’s organ systems are properly oxygenated. This puts less strain on the heart because the extremities will be demanding less blood and oxygen from an already overworked heart.
