Fenugreek, an herb similar to clover, is a member of the Fabaceae or legume, pea, bean-family. Native to the Mediterranean, Southern Europe and Western Asia, powdered seeds have been used historically to treat digestive issues and induce childbirth. While leaves have remained a staple in culinary curries, Fenugreek is used to treat eczema, manage diabetes and promote lactation. It also contains a powerful sotolane molecule, used as a maple-flavoring agent.
Fenugreek may help Type2 Diabetes in conjunction with controlled diet and exercise.
