What is Fenugreek?


Fenugreek is an annual Mediterranean and Asiatic herb with aromatic seeds. Fenugreek is used around the world as a culinary spice and food that is soothing to the stomach.

Today its main use is as a blood sugar regulator.  Three constituents of fenugreek, tri-gonelline, nicotinic acid and coumarin decrease blood sugar levels.  Fenugreek seeds are also high in fiber.  Fiber helps to regulate blood sugar by slowing down the absorption of sugar in the intestines.

These properties make fenugreek an excellent choice for the treatment of diabetes and insulin resistance.  Fenugreek is also used to increase the milk supply of nursing mothers.  It is believed to do this by acting on the brain to stimulate the release of prolactin, the hormone responsible for milk production.  Other reported uses for fenugreek are to lower cholesterol, thin mucus secretions and lubricate the intestines to relieve constipation.
