FENUGREEK (Trigonella foenum-graecum)

Fenugreek

DESCRIPTION: Fenugreek is rich in Vitamins A and D and also contains smaller amounts of Vitamins B1, B2 and B3. Fenugreek contains an oil that is similar to cod liver oil and is high in protein. It also contains the minerals choline and iron and some lecithin.

POTENTIAL BENEFITS: Fenugreek works on softening hardened mucus and helps to expel toxic waste via the lymphatic system. It helps to expel mucus from the lungs and bowels. Since Fenugreek does contain some lecithin, it helps to reduce cholesterol and also contains lipotropic substances, which are fat dissolving substances. The lecithin helps to dissolve fatty accumulation and relieve the body of water retention. When Fenugreek is combined with lemon juice and honey, it helps to soothe the body and reduce fevers.

POTENTIAL SIDE EFFECTS: None known at this time.

PARTS USED: Seeds

GENERAL USAGE: Fenugreek has been used to treat an abscess, bad breath (halitosis), blood poisoning, boils, body odor, bronchial problems, carbuncles, cholesterol, fevers, inflammation, lactation, lung congestion or infection, as an expectorant for phlegm, stomach problems, throat problems used as a gargle, ulcers, the uterus, water retention and wounds when used as a poultice.
