Buy Fenugreek Seed Tea, Extract & Supplements
One of the oldest plants known to civilization, Fenugreek (trigonella foenum-graecum) has been used in culinary dishes, as a tea, and as an herbal remedy since ancient times in Italy, Greece, and India. Fenugreek was thought to be so powerful it was even buried with the Pharaohs for a healthy afterlife. Some of its common names include Greek hay, mehti, bird’s foot and Greek clover.
Fenugreek is a member of the legume family and grows to about two feet high and displays delicate yellow flowers, similar to clover. Each long yellow-brown pod contains 10 to 20 hard stone-like seeds that produce a fragrant aroma with a celery-like flavor. Its young leaves and shoots can be added to salads and its extract is frequently used in marinades.

Naturally Occurring Nutrients in Fenugreek

Potassium is especially important for cellular health and body fluids that play a role in heart and blood pressure health. Iron is vital for red blood cell production and is also involved in certain digestive enzymes.
In addition, Fenugreek contains naturally occurring polysaccharides like mucilage, saponins and pectin which may help maintain cholesterol levels already in the normal range. Non-starch polysaccharides (NSP) make up a large portion of the fiber content in fenugreek seeds which increase the bulk of food and encourage healthy, smooth elimination
There is also an amino acid in fenugreek called isoleucine that may play a role in glucose absorption in the intestines. Finally, fenugreek contains phytochemical compounds such as choline, diosgenin, and neotigogens that may benefit overall wellness.
