Fenugreek is a wild plant of the Fabaceae family. It is very rich in anti-oxidants. Fenugreek has been known since ancient times as an effective folk remedy for many diseases. Arab physicians of the Mediterranean, North Africa and India have used it in medication for centuries. It was used in ancient Egypt as food and as an effective medicine for fever. It was also used to increase breast milk in nursing women. However, in China it was used for treating sexual diseases and disorders, kidney diseases and diabetes.
Fenugreek is also known as an effective treatment of triglycerides and cholesterol. Scientific research have indicated that excessive use of Fenugreek reduces the risk of diabetes and balances blood sugar levels. Milled fenugreek seeds contain amino acids that stimulate the production of insulin and help regulate blood sugar level and also treat hypertension. The proof of this is that diabetes and hypertension are rare diseases in Yemen, due to Yemenis use of Fenugreek on a daily basis.
