Alfalfa sprouts and extracts are used to treat a number of conditions (high cholesterol, asthma, diabetes etc). Prolonged use can lead to sun sensitivity and an auto immune condition similar to lupus, you should stop now. This will ensure that it is completely cleared from your system. In addition remember to use a sun screen, applying every 2 hours to provide maximum protection.
