Fenugreek, also known as methi, is one of the oldest medicinal plants known to man, yet surprisingly has not gained as much popularity within the United States as it has in other parts of the world. This annual plant is native to the Middle East, Southern Europe and Asia and has a variety of herbal, medicinal, and culinary uses. Different parts of the plant may be used for different purposes, although most benefits of fenugreek can be found in the ground seeds including:
- Rich in vitamins and minerals
- Good source of fiber
- Boosts the immune system
- Promotes a healthy digestive system and reduces risk of colon cancer
- High levels of polysaccharides help lower bad cholesterol by reducing the absorption of bile salts into the colon.
There are no major side effects of fenugreek, although over-use can lead to mild gastrointestinal discomfort. Pregnant women are advised not to use fenugreek. Consult with a doctor before using any dietary supplements if you are pregnant, nursing, or taking any medications.
