Though often called a seed, Fenugreek is actually a legume with a history dating back to 1500 B.C. Egypt, where it was used for childbirth and lactation. In modern Egypt, it’s used for menstrual relief.

Revered in Ayurvedic, Greek, and Latin medicine, Fenugreek was historically seen as an aphrodisiac and a remedy for various ailments. Today, it’s primarily used for digestive and respiratory issues.

Fenugreek is beneficial for managing blood sugar levels, making it significant for those with type 2 diabetes. Rich in iron and protein, it also contains naturally occurring silica, essential for rebuilding skin tissues and removing blood toxins that dull the skin.
