Features & Benefits
Fenugreek is a herb that is native to sub-Himalayan plains of Indian subcontinent, and today it is widely grown all over southern and Mediterranean Europe, Middle-East Asia and northern African regions. Fenugreek seeds have been found to contain protein, vitamin C, niacin, potassium and diosgenin (a compound that has properties similar to estrogen).
While the seeds and leaves are primarily used as a culinary spice, it has a long history of medical uses in Indian, and Chinese medicine. Fenugreek is used for digestive problems such as loss of appetite, upset stomach, constipation, and inflammation of the stomach (gastritis). It is also used for conditions that affect heart health such as "hardening of the arteries" (atherosclerosis) and for high blood levels of certain fats including cholesterol and triglycerides.
