The Amazing Benefits Of Fenugreek In Your Diet

The Benefits Of Fenugreek In Your Diet

 Just like Hops, (see previous post), Fenugreek is beneficial during the Menopause.


Fenugreek is one of the oldest recorded medicinal plants. The recorded use of fenugreek goes back to Egypt in 1500 BCE. It was also used in Greek, Arabian, Indian and Chinese medicine. 

Fenugreek is very versatile but has been mainly used traditionally for mucous and lung congestion because of its excellent expectorant properties. It has been used for ulcers, digestive inflammation, gout and loss of appetite. It is one of the best herbs for encouraging breast milk.

Fenugreek has even been used as an aphrodisiac. In our book, Sex & Fertility: Natural Solutions, we say:
“Fenugreek is considered to be an aphrodisiac and rejuvenator. Traditional Chinese herbalists used fenugreek for conditions of the male reproductive tract, and a famous nineteenth century female reproductive tonic . . . contained fenugreek seeds. Fenugreek has mild estrogenic effects. Once fed to harem women to enlarge their breasts, James Duke says that fenugreek . . . really may do this. You can take it as a tea, he says, or massage fenugreek powder onto the breasts”.
Today, burgeoning research is validating traditional claims and establishing new ones. As the traditional uses suggest, fenugreek benefits the female reproductive system in a number of ways.
