Fenugreek has many beneficial effects on the respiratory system and is an effective treatment for lung
disorders. It is a fine expectorant that relieves asthma and sinus problems by reducing mucus and is also good for coughs and cold. Fenugreek is said to dissolve hardened masses of accumulated mucus and is considered a treatment for tuberculosis. As a body cleanser and expectorant, Fenugreek is said to expel toxic waste and mucus through the elimination system. Used externally, Fenugreek's mucus-dissolving properties help to ease sore throat when used as a gargle.
Fenugreek is believed to be an anti-inflammatory agent that alleviates gastrointestinal disorders and digestive problems. Moreover, increased bile acid secretion also helps the digestive process, and the high mucilage content in the herb soothes mucous membranes and lubricates the intestines. Fenugreek is also thought to relieve intestinal gas and act as a mild laxative.
Used externally, Fenugreek is also used to relieve inflammations. When made into a poultice, it is effective in relieving ulcers, swollen glands, gout, sciatica, neuralgic pains, skin irritations, wounds and bruises. When used topically on the skin, Fenugreek is thought to decrease skin pain and swelling.
Some reports by non-nursing women indicate that Fenugreek may enlarge the breasts. The effect was not due to any estrogen supplied by the herb, but to the changes in liver enzymes that slow the rate in which a woman's body breaks down estrogen. Fenugreek has been used for centuries to promote lactation in nursing mothers and may ease the symptoms of mastitis.
Fenugreek's properties as an enhancement were considered valuable in ancient times, and some believe that use is still valid today.
Recent research has indicated that Fenugreek may have excellent positive results in treating diabetes. Preliminary and double-blind trials have found that Fenugreek helps improve blood sugar control in patients with insulin-dependent (Type 1) and non-insulin-dependent (Type 2) diabetes.
The herb was shown to lower blood glucose levels for Type-2 diabetes sufferers, and some insulin-dependent diabetics in one study in India, who were on low doses of insulin, took Fenugreek, and
it reduced blood sugar and other harmful fats. Furthermore, an amino acid in Fenugreek (hydroxyisoleucine) is said to stimulate the pancreas to secrete insulin, another way the herb may help diabetics.
Fenugreek is said to also lower high cholesterol. In further studies, the herb decreased the levels of low-density lipoprotein (LDL or bad cholesterol) in the blood without affecting the good cholesterol. The seeds contain natural saponins (or "soaps") that cleanse the bulkier forms of cholesterol from the bile, and the high fiber content in the seeds may be another reason for its cholesterol lowering qualities, because fiber frequently inhibits the absorption of cholesterol and facilitates its movement through the system.
Fenugreek is a restorative tonic that is often given to people recovering from a variety of illnesses.
The diosgenin content in Fenugreek is said to be important in the synthesis of oral contraceptives and gender hormone treatments.
