Health: The Hard-to-Swallow Truth about Shaklee Alfalfa Complex
Posted On September 19, 2016
I find it’s hard to find a decent review on Shaklee Alfalfa Complex, and almost of the reviews are mostly promotional-based reviews written by the registered distributors. So, I’ve decided to write my honest review about this product. Please bear in mind that I am not registered as Shaklee distributor or agent. I bought this Alfalfa Complex because I usually consume Alfalfa as part of my daily diet routine.
Alfalfa is a natural diuretic that helps to regulate the body’s acid/alkaline balance. It’s famously known for its healing properties and help to relieve a variety health conditions such as Osteoporosis, Arthritis, and intestinal ulcers. Alfalfa contains 8 digestive enzymes such as, calcium, phosphorus, iron, magnesium, chlorophyll, bioflavonoids, trace minerals, and vitamins (Vitamin A, D, E, and K).
What They Say
Alfalfa provides a wide variety of nutrients including calcium, phosphorus, vitamins, chlorophyll, and bioflavonoids. It’s a storehouse of nutrients, and the tap root reaches down as deep as 20 feet searching out nutrients and minerals from deposits in the soil, while its leaves gather large amounts of chlorophyll through the natural process of photosynthesis. Alfalfa Complex is a Shaklee Signature Formula originally developed by Dr. Shaklee.
Alfalfa Complex contains only nature’s premium quality alfalfa, grown in the Antelope Valley of California, the richest source of trace minerals in the world. It is high in protein and contains eight digestive enzymes. Shaklee’s Alfalfa is grown with no pesticides, fungicides, bactericides, inorganic fertilizers, synthetic hormones, growth regulators or chemicals. Throughout growing and processing, Shaklee requires strict growing techniques and they have careful controls to help retain the nutritional qualities of the original alfalfa plant even from other nearby farms. No artificial flavours, sweeteners, colours or preservatives are added in the tableting process. Caffeine free. Gluten-free. Vegetarian formula.
What I Say
I bought a plastic bottle of 330 tablets which can last for 33 days if I take 10 tablets every day. The price is quite affordable and I find this is the cheapest Alfalfa product available in the market. I usually consume 5 tablets in the morning (before breakfast) to improve digestion, and 5 tablets before bedtime to aid with cells repairment. I have been taking Shaklee Alfalfa Complex for 2 months now, and I admit that it really do wonder to my skin especially provided relief on my skin allergies which I got after using skincare products which were not suitable for my skin.
This product helps with inflammatory, allergies, and bloating. This also helped to clear up congestion and runny nose. Shaklee Alfalfa Complex has also helped with my gastritis problem which I had been suffering for so long. These are just some of the benefits which I experienced from consuming this product for 2 months now. This is a traditional supplement so the effects would take about 4 weeks to see the result. It depends on the consistency of consuming this product. There’s no magic when it comes to supplement.
One thing that I dislike about this product is I find it’s quite hard to swallow the tablets, and I almost puke whenever I tried to swallow 5 tablets at a time. I couldn’t swallow all 10 tablets at once. The taste was not that appealing also, and I find they are not suitable to be diluted in water or juice. It tasted really gross.
Since this is the most affordable Alfalfa on the market, and I experience great result when consuming this product, then I would definitely purchase this again. The taste may be quite awful but I believe the benefits which should be sought after.
Where To Buy
You can actually buy this from any Shaklee Independent Distributor (SID). You don’t have to be Shaklee member to enjoy these benefits from consuming Alfalfa Complex.
