What are the benefits of fenugreek?
A: Fenugreek has been used for medicinal purposes since ancient times. Some claim it may help lower cholesterol, boost your digestive system, induce childbirth, help dress wounds, and ease eczema symptoms. Fenugreek capsules and teas are used throughout the world by nursing women. But the NCCIH points out more studies are needed before these possible benefits are confirmed. (1,3)
A number of studies have suggested that fenugreek may help lower blood sugar levels in people with diabetes. But the NCCIH says this, too, warrants more research before we know for sure whether it’s proven. Is fenugreek good for weight loss?
A: It might help you feel full and, as a result, eat less, at the very least. But again, more research is needed on this front. For now, use fenugreek to help enhance the flavour of your dishes and expect nothing more.
