Last Updated December 25th, 2019

What Is Fenugreek?

Fenugreek is an annual plant belonging to the Fabaceae family. Fabaceae is a family which commonly consists of legumes and beans. This plant is native to the Mediterranean region, southern Europe, and western Asia. Fenugreek seeds were used by the Egyptians to combat fever. It is mentioned in detail in Egyptian papyrus writings circa 1500 B.C. Because it’s been used in so many cultures, this herb has amassed many different monikers such as methi, bird’s foot, Greek hay, and bockshornsame, to name a few.

It is known for several health benefits such as digestion, diabetes control, treat menstrual problems, reduce cholesterol and most importantly reduce inflammation.  Fenugreek seems to be a suitable herb to relieve the symptoms of inflammation associated with any bone torsion. One of the most painful conditions it can effectively treat is snapping hip syndrome.

Fenugreek seeds can be added in salads, cookies, and sauces and consumed to obtain the benefits and relieve the symptoms of inflammation.  Studies have also found that fenugreek is beneficial in healing broken bones faster due to its antioxidant effects. The leaves of it are used in multiple cuisines and the seeds are an avid substitute for maple syrup. The plant grows up to 1 or 2 feet with long tender stems that bear tripartite (consisting of three parts) leaves.

The seeds are yellowish brown and stony in nature. They are available as a spice (in whole or powdered form), supplement (pill or liquid form), tea, and skin cream. One tablespoon of fenugreek contains the following nutrients:

  • Fiber: 3 grams.
  • Protein: 3 grams.
  • Carbs: 6 grams.
  • Fat: 1 gram.
  • Iron: 20% of your daily requirements.
  • Manganese: 7% of your daily requirements.
  • Magnesium: 5% of your daily requirements

  • Helps control diabetes: The intake of fenugreek along with food helps lower blood sugar levels in people diagnosed with type-2 diabetes.
  • Promotes lactation: For many years, Ayurveda (traditional Indian medicine) has supported the use of fenugreek to build a healthy milk flow for lactating mothers. The substance diosgenin present in fenugreek helps promote the amount of milk in the breast. The milk produced contains calcium and magnesium which are essential to maintaining infant health.
  • Helps treat menstrual problems: It helps to ease menstruation process by acting as an emenagogue (a substance that stimulates or increases menstrual flow). It assists in obstructed menses and provides relief from symptoms related to menstruation. It also helps reduce the symptoms associated with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), by reducing the size of the ovarian cysts and regulating the menstrual cycle. It also aids in other uterine troubles like menstrual cramps, hot flushes, and period distress.
  • Reduces cholesterol level: The high content of fiber in fenugreek helps eliminate excess cholesterol in blood vessels and arteries. Studies have proved that the intake of fenugreek helps lower the levels of low-density lipoprotein (LDL) or bad cholesterol. As a result, it prevents the formation of a clot in vessels, chances of heart attacks, atherosclerosis (a disease of the arteries characterized by the deposition of fatty material on their inner walls), and strokes.

  • Increases exercise performance: Though the results are controversial, it has been proved by many studies, that fenugreek helps decrease body fat and increase testosterone levels. However, there isn’t much effect on muscle mass and strength.
  • Treats fever and sore throat: The presence of mucilage initiates a soothing effect on a sore throat and regulates the temperature of the body.
