What is Fenugreek?
Fenugreek is indigenous to several parts of the world, including the Ukraine, the Med, China, and India. It is a member of the legume family, and it is commonly used for culinary purposes as it provides a wonderful depth of flavour to a number of dishes, especially Indian dishes such as curries. It is the seeds of Fenugreek that provide the most benefits, as they are jam-packed full of nutrients, including vitamins, antioxidants, amino acids, and minerals.
How does it work?
Fenugreek can work in a number of different ways, and what’s more, it works differently on men and women, so it can provide a number of very unique benefits that will vary greatly from gender to gender. For example, in women, it has been found to help enhance the regeneration of new breast cells and tissue, so it can increase the size of a woman’s breasts. In men, Fenugreek can enhance the production of testosterone, which is the dominant male sexual health hormone. This in turn leads to an increase in muscle mass and strength, as well as in libido as well. The herb also enhances libido and sex drive, in men and women, which again, is believed to be due to an increase in testosterone production in men, and due to the fact that it enhances circulation. What’s more, it also provides very important heart benefits, as Fenugreek has been proven to lower LDL cholesterol, which is the unhealthy cholesterol that coats the lining of the arteries and can potentially lead to heart attacks, hypertension, organ failure, and more besides. The supplement works in many different ways as it provides so many benefits, making it ideal for all around health and wellness.
What are the benefits of using Fenugreek supplements?
Some of the primary benefits associated with Fenugreek include:
As mentioned, in men and women, fenugreek has been proven to enhance libido and sex drive. Fenugreek helps to improve circulation, allowing more oxygen and nutrient-rich blood to flow around the body. The more blood that can reach the genitals, the more aroused we become. As well as that, in men, fenugreek enhances testosterone production, which again, is a hormone that increases the libido.
Regulates blood sugar
Many diabetics and people with abnormal blood glucose levels will also supplement with fenugreek as it can help to lower blood glucose levels, therefore reducing the risk of diabetes and helping to improve insulin sensitivity.
Fenugreek can also help to improve digestion as it helps to prevent intestinal inflammation by coating the lining of the stomach and the intestines with a thin protective membrane. This ensures that optimal digestion takes place, plus it helps to reduce the risk of indigestion, acid reflux, and heartburn.
