Do you know fenugreek?
It is a herbaceous plant belonging to the Fabaceae family, native to the Middle East and North Africa and traditionally used as a tonic. Already at the time of the Egyptians, Greeks and Romans, it was used for therapeutic as well as culinary purposes.
Fenugreek is a particular resource for its many beneficial properties: it is in fact rich in mineral salts (such as iron manganese, copper and magnesium), vitamins (B6, thiamine and riboflavin), vegetable oils, organic phosphates, fats and proteins. Commonly used to promote digestion and improve metabolism, it is also a valuable aid for people with diabetes as it is able to lower blood sugar and cholesterol levels.
Do you suffer from diabetes?
Fenugreek is your ally because it has the ability to quickly reduce the amount of sugar in the blood.
Fenugreek seeds contain an abundant amount of isoleucine. According to research, this amino acid has a protective effect on the liver and stimulates the production of insulin.
The hypoglycemic effect of fenugreek seeds is due to the presence of soluble fiber. According to a 2007 study, the soluble fiber fraction delays the digestion and absorption of carbohydrates, increasing the action of insulin. Fenugreek also contains choline which helps protect nerves in the brain and slow premature mental decline.
In addition to controlling blood sugar and cholesterol, fenugreek has other properties :
- regulates the hormonal imbalances typical of menopause
- normalizes the activity of the thyroid gland
- regulates digestive function and counteracts the onset of ulcer
- reduces body weight
- remineralizes the bones
- reduces inflammation
- relieves states of anxiety
