A highly aromatic spice, fenugreek seeds have high protein content. In addition to their antioxidant properties, they help to combat diabetes and cholesterol. It is a food particularly recommended for athletes, as it increases endurance capacity and optimises energy use, due to its anabolic and ergogenic action. It also improves natural testosterone levels for enhanced performance.

With a slightly bitter taste but mild aroma, POWDER's organically-grown fenugreek seeds are the perfect ingredient for adding to salads, soups or sandwiches.

DESCRIPTION

Fenugreek (Trigonella foenum-graecum L.) is an annual plant that belongs to the legume vegetable family1. A shrub that can grow up to 130 cm tall, its trifoliate 1-4 cm leaves resemble wings2-4.

Its Latin name (Trigonella 'little triangle') is a reference to the shape of its flowers, light yellow or whitish in colour, which can grow in pairs or singly2-4.

Its fruit is a pod around 6-8 cm long. Inside there are around 10-20 polyhedral seeds, the reason for its common name the 'goat's horn' plant2-4.

ORGANIC FENUGREEK SEEDS POWDER

Fenugreek is native to the Mediterranean basin and southwest Asia3. It is currently grown extensively in India, the Mediterranean region, North Africa and Yemen5.

For centuries, traditional medicine has used fenugreek to induce postpartum lactation6 and for a multitude of ailments5: fever, vomiting, anorexia and bronchitis.

In ancient times, the Greeks and Romans used it for culinary and medicinal purposes because of its anti-inflammatory properties. It is mentioned in the texts of Dioscorides, the Ancient Greek physician, and of Laguna, a Spaniard born in 1499, dedicated to botanical medicine2.

Ayurvedic medicine prescribes it as a tonic, antipyretic, antiemetic and astringent, for heart disease and to eliminate bad tastes in the mouth. In India, fenugreek seeds are mixed with yoghurt to make a natural hair conditioner6.

Indian cuisine uses it a lot in pickles, curries, bread and pastries. In Egypt, it is added as a supplement to bread, and in Yemen it is considered one of the essential components of the diet5-6. In Arab countries, it is customary to give fenugreek seeds to young women of marriageable age, since the seeds are believed to increase their weight3.

ORGANIC FENUGREEK SEEDS POWDER

COMPOSITION AND BENEFITS

Fenugreek seeds are nutritionally rich in carbohydrates (25%), proteins (30%), lipids (6-10%), mucilages (galactomannan), phosphorus, calcium phosphate and magnesium2.

Known to be mucilaginous, astringent, thermogenic, anti-inflammatory and aphrodisiac6, the seeds have several bioactive principles, such as fenugreekine, antioxidant flavonoids and sterols2-7.

In addition, the steroid saponins and the fibre it contains2-7 give it anti-diabetic and hypocholesterolemic properties, proven in numerous experimental studies in insulin-dependent and non-insulin-dependent people5-6. Fenugreek also has a hepatoprotective effect on livers damaged by toxic substances8.

However, fenugreek is also widely known for its widely demonstrated anabolic and ergogenic properties9-10. In one trial, subjects who took fenugreek supplements for 8 weeks improved their muscle strength11.

Fenugreek increases levels of free and total testosterone, sperm morphology, the sexual health and mood of adult men12. In one study, free testosterone levels increased up to 46% in 90% of volunteers, while 85.4% had an improved sperm count. In addition, improvements in mental alertness, mood, cardiovascular health and libido were demonstrated13.


USE, DIRECTIONS

Fenugreek can be used as an infusion, as a spice or to germinate.
