Fenugreek is a natural healing plant that has been used for medicine, since nearly the beginning of time. This plant has been used in Chinese, Greek, Indian and Arabian health care for hundreds of years. It was also used in ancient Egypt around 1500 BC. Fenugreek is abundantly grown in countries such as France, India, the United States, Argentina, the Mediterranean, and African nations for dyes, medications, food, forage, and condiment purposes.

Fenugreek is often used as food for many different types of livestock animals. It is often called Goat’s Horn and Bird’s Foot as well. The plant is generally seen growing in southern Europe along the Mediterranean Sea. Fenugreek consumption has a tendency to boost breast size as well as milk production for breastfeeding moms.


Fenugreek has a strong influence on blood lipid levels, and it may have positive effects in reducing atherosclerosis. Diabetics who suffer from lipid imbalances benefit greatly from the plant, because it has a remarkable ability to decrease triglycerides, cholesterol levels, and LDL, while increasing their HDL levels. Soak some seeds in water overnight and the next day, strain the water and drink it.

Bowel Trouble

Fenugreek leaves are beneficial in treating dyspepsia and sluggish liver. They can also help to treat gastric disorders, when they are consumed after boiling them in butter or frying them. Fenugreek is also used to treat diarrhea and dysentery.

Fenugreek seed powder is used to cure GI problems, as well as congestion or allergies of the upper respiratory tract. Fenugreek seeds are dried in a shaded area and cleaned thoroughly. Pour a few tablespoons of lemon juice in a pot, and place the dried Fenugreeks into it. The pot should then be warmed for a minute or two before use. Allow it to cool. After the seed and juice mixture has dried, the seeds can then be ground down to a coarse consistency.


For your face, use one teaspoon of fenugreek seed powder blended with a bit of water, and blend it until the consistency is that of a thin paste. It can then be applied to the face with soft cotton swabs or balls. It is very effective as it reduces marks and blemishes.
