Health Benefits of Fenugreek

Reduce Risk of Diabetes

Many animal studies have shown fenugreek compounds have the ability to reduce blood sugar by reducing intestinal glucose absorption, delay gastric emptying, improve insulin sensitivity and action and reduce concentrations of lipid binding protein.

Boost Testosterone

Testosterone is a sex hormone in both men and women that affects sexual function, energy levels, cognitive function, bone health and mood. These levels naturally decline with age. Studies have shown that fenugreek may help increase low testosterone.

Improve Milk Production in Breast Feeding Women

Studies have shown that fenugreek may help stimulate breast milk production and ease the flow. It has been long recommended in traditional Asian medicine for this purpose.
