Health benefits of fenugreek

So I recently discovered the amazing benefits of fenugreek seeds – I know a revelation! We all know the power of turmeric as it’s used now for many health benefits within our food so it’s interesting to discover more herbs and spices that can be used.

Fenugreek is truly a multi-purpose herb. People from Western Asia and the Mediterranean have used fenugreek for thousands of years to flavour food, improve health, and soothe skin. In more recent years, fenugreek has gained global popularity as a herbal supplement with a variety of health benefits.

So here are the benefits:

   •     Balance cholesterol

   •     Soothe upset stomach and digestive problems

   •     Reduce menstrual cramps

   •     Reduce appetite

   •     Reduce fat mass

   •     Maintain liver and kidney health

   •     Soothe muscle pain

   •     Reduce fever

Why not give it a try for yourself and see if there are benefits. You can buy  tablets or as I like to do cook with the much forgotten about seeds, they are a must in my house at the beginning of a curry recipe.
