Feature Summary

Fenugreek has a long history of traditional use, primarily to promote milk production, and as a mild laxative, an expectorant for respiratory mucus, and an anti-inflammatory. Grown in Asia, Africa, and Europe, this annual plant is used as both a food and a spice. It is one of the oldest known medicinal plants and has been used by Ayurvedic and traditional Chinese medicine practitioners since antiquity.

As a lactation aid, it significantly increases milk production, reduces infant weight loss in the first week of life, and helps infants regain weight.1,2 Its high-soluble and insoluble fiber content provides a protective barrier in the digestive tract, helping to both provide relief from heartburn symptoms and improve digestive function. It is also rich in antioxidants, vitamins, minerals, and anti-inflammatory compounds, contributing to Fenugreek’s long tradition of promoting good health.3,4

Additionally, fenugreek has been used traditionally to help reduce elevated blood lipid levels and for the promotion of healthy glucose levels.
