Fenugreek as an Herbal Remedy

A native of the Mediterranean, fenugreek's curative properties have been associated with treating a number of illnesses, and studies show promise in using extracts from fenugreek to treat Type-2 diabetes and help lower cholesterol. Some other conditions that fenugreek may help with are:
  • Sore throat
  • Arthritis
  • Indigestion
  • Asthma
  • Bronchitis
  • Inflammation and swelling (ground and used topically)
  • Low milk production in lactating women
  • Loss of appetite
  • Breast Enlargement
Avoid taking fenugreek if you are pregnant. Before taking this or any other herbal preparation, see your medical practitioner.
