The word “alfalfa” comes from the Arabic phrase, al-fac-facah, meaning “Father of all foods.”
Alfalfa leaf is rich in chlorophyll, carotene, protein, calcium and other minerals, vitamins in the B group, vitamin C, vitamin D, vitamin E, and vitamin K. The dried hay of alfalfa has been found to be a source of vitamin D, containing 48 ng/g (1920 IU/kg) vitamin D2 and 0.63 ng/g (25 IU/kg) vitamin D3. There is a reference to vitamin D2 and vitamin D3being found in the alfalfa shoot; this is awaiting verification.
