Fenugreek, an annual herb native to Southern Europe and Asia, is one of the oldest known medicinal herbs and provides a variety of purported health and practical benefits. Now grown in many parts of the world, fenugreek seeds impart a maple-like flavor to baked goods and curries and the plant can be eaten as a vegetable. Several of fenugreek's health and medicinal uses have been substantiated by scientific research
Fenugreek may lower cholesterol levels by inhibiting absorption of cholesterol in the intestine, according to the University of Colorado Denver Pharmacy Department. Soluble fiber in the herb forms a complex with cholesterol that binds it and prevents absorption and also promotes increased flow of bile, which your liver makes from cholesterol.
Phytoestrogens in fenugreek seeds make them a valuable spice for regulating estrogen levels, according to James A. Duke, author of "CRC Handbook of Medicinal Spices." A tissue culture study published in the June 2010 issue of the "Indian Journal of Medical Research" found that fenugreek seed extract activated estrogen receptors on breast cancer cells, causing increased growth and reproduction of the cancer cells. Fenugreek extract also activated an estrogen-dependant breast cancer gene. Both activities indicate strong estrogenic effects. Researchers conclude that fenugreek may be unsuitable for women with estrogen-positive breast cancer
Fenugreek is generally considered safe when taken in doses of 10 to 100 grams per day. It may cause low potassium levels in some people. If you tend toward low potassium levels, consult your doctor or qualified health professional for guidance and supervision before taking fenugreek
