Fenugreek seed extract standardised to contain 50% saponins:
Native to the Mediterranean and Asia, fenugreek is one of the oldest known medicinal and culinary plants in the world. It is mainly used due to its androgenic and tonic properties.
Rich in antioxidants, fenugreek helps to protect the body from the formation of free radicals generated during exercise.
In addition to boosting recovery after exercise, it helps increase muscle mass faster, while ensuring nutrient intake is used more effectively.
It is high in fibre and rich in vitamins, phosphorus, iron and protein, which gives it a tonic effect, stimulating appetite in malnourished people and restoring energy to those recovering from illness or suffering from depression.
Fenugreek: Detailed information
Fenugreek (Trigonella foenum-graecum) is a plant native to the Mediterranean and southwest Asia. Its name derives from the Latin for “three angles”, because its corolla has three leaves forming an imaginary triangle. Traditionally, it was widely used by the Greeks, Egyptians and Romans for medicinal purposes, as a general tonic and stimulator of the immune system (4).
Studies have since confirmed these properties and have shown that taken after exercise, it improves recovery by increasing muscle glycogen synthesis (1), increasing levels of free testosterone and its bioavailability (2).
Fenugreek also protects against free radicals generated during exercise, due to its antioxidant capacity (6). It is also recommended as a complementary therapy in diets treating obesity, due to its lipid-lowering action, i.e. its ability to decrease blood lipid levels, preventing cardiovascular risk factors. It also has an anti-inflammatory effect on joints, which tend to swell during exercise.
Finally, fenugreek has been used as an alternative treatment to oral hypoglycemics (3) in non-insulin dependent diabetes, due to the combined action of the coumarins, nicotinic acid and trigonelline (saponin) it contains, and the mucilage lining the cells of the mucous membrane slowing the absorption of nutrients.
