Fenugreek Nutrition Facts

One of the oldest medicinal plants, fenugreek (Trigonella foenum-graecum), has been studied. The scientific data has been summarised for potential health benefits such as blood glucose management in type 2 diabetics, cholesterol-lowering effect, effect on growth hormone leading to metabolic syndrome modulation, anti-inflammatory and anti-cancer effects, increase in male libido, safety, and toxicity. These benefits have been examined in terms of weight of evidence for efficacy, effective human dose, extrapolation of animal findings to people, and the safety margin at the anticipated clinical dose.
