Description

Fenugreek

Fenugreek, (Trigonella foenum-graecum), also spelled fenugreek, a fragrant herb of the pea family (Fabaceae) and its dried, flavourful seeds. Native to southern Europe and the Mediterranean region, fenugreek is cultivated in central and southeastern Europe, western Asia, India, and northern Africa.

Fenugreek comes from Latin words meaning “Greek hay.” It is native to southern Europe and Asia, where it has been grown since the Bronze Age as an herb, spice, and medicinal plant. Today, India is a major producer of fenugreek.

Based on the available evidence, it has benefits for lowering blood sugar levels, boosting testosterone, and increasing milk production in breastfeeding mothers. It may also reduce cholesterol levels, lower inflammation, and help with appetite control, but more research is needed in these areas.

  • It is a strong stimulator for milk production in mothers
  • Known also for use in cervical cancer
  • Reduces blood sugar levels in type 1 and 2 diabetes
  • Lowers serum cholesterol, triglyceride and low density lipoprotein
  • Will soothe disturbed digestion
  • Impotence and period and menopause problems
  • Reduces fevers, detoxifies, dispels bad breath and body odour
  • Also for bronchitis

Fenugreek may help increase low testosterone and sperm levels. In a 2017 study, 50 male volunteers took an extract for 12 weeks. About 85 percent of the participants had an increased sperm count. The results also indicate that the extract consistently improved mental alertness, mood, and libido.

Fenugreek may enhance female libido too! In recent study women who took 2g daily reported significant increases in measures of sexual cognition, arousal, sexual behavior, sexual drive, and orgasm. Not only does it help with female sexual health but it also relieves menstrual cramps.  One study found greater pain reduction and shortened duration of pain in the group using it.

Fenugreek may trigger a number of side effects, such as diarrhea, dizziness, and gas. In addition, the use of large doses of fenugreek may lead to a reduction of blood sugar levels. Therefore, taking fenugreek in combination with diabetes medication may have harmful effects. It may also reduce potassium. People taking medications that reduce potassium levels, such as certain diuretics, and those with underlying heart disease should avoid this herb.

Allergies are another concern due to possible cross-reactivity with related plant allergens and supplements should be avoided by people with allergies to peanuts, chickpeas, or coriander.
