Here’s a great article about how probiotics can help with peanut allergies! I believe that Shaklee’s Optiflora Probiotics helped me with 36 of my 37 acquired allergies. A candida infection caused my allergies.
The Murdoch Children’s Research Institute gave 30 allergic children peanut protein and probiotics for 18 months. (You’d have to eat 20 kg of yogurt daily to get this many probiotics!) The result? 80% of the kids could eat peanuts with no reaction after the study!

Can someone be allergic to Alfalfa?
Yes, but only the stem portion of the plant causes allergies. The brand I trust removes the stems so it doesn’t cause allergies!
Does it matter how the alfalfa is processed in terms of effectiveness?
Absolutely! The brand I trust only uses 7 yr old & older plants. This means the roots are at least 25 feet deep and they can pull up the nutrient reserves from deep in the soil! We use no herbicides, pesticides, fungicides, bactericides, growth regulators, hormones or other chemicals which deplete the nutrients and add toxicity. We use special harvesting equipment to make certain the greatest concentration of vitamins and minerals are maintained. To get the best results, we must use the best techniques!
Why is the serving size so large (10 tabs)?
If I wanted to eat a veggie serving, I wouldn’t eat just one pea or just one blueberry and expect great results. Since alfalfa is a food, and our alfalfa is concentrated into a tablet form, we don’t have to eat platefuls of alfalfa plant to get the healthy results. I use 1-7 servings of our alfalfa each day, depending on how many symptoms I want to address.
anti-cancer activity because of isoflavone/phytoestrogens content

If cut before it blooms, alfalfa is low in fiber and high in energy.
improves soil structure and condition, and controls weeds in subsequent crop rotations.
Alfalfa is a good source of protein, B-complex vitamins, and certain minerals, including calcium, iron, magnesium, phosphorous, and potassium.
Alfalfa could help prevent fatigue associated with vitamin/mineral deficiency or protein energy malnutrition in disadvantaged parts of the world.
absorbs significant quantities of cholesterol. The direct interaction of saponins and cholesterol is thought to be responsible for the ability of alfalfa and other saponin-containing plant materials to reverse diet induced cholesterolemia in rats. Alfalfa saponins also interact with cholesterol found in intestinal cell membranes. This potentially alters cholesterol metabolism by interfering with intestinal absorption of cholesterol. 3
absorbs bile acids in the small intestine which then enter the large intestine and are eliminated along with steroids. Since steroids normally facilitate cholesterol absorption, their elimination provides another possible mechanism to reverse or prevent cholesterolemia. 4
