Health Tips: Control blood sugar with Fenugreek (Methi)

5 comments
These little seeds are commonly used as a spice in Indian cuisine, but did you knonw that fenugreek (or methi) is also powerful medicine. In fact, it's one of the oldest plant medicines. Fenugreek have been found to lower blood sugar, increase insulin sensitivity, and reduce high cholesterol, according to several animal and human studies.

In one of the largest studies on fenugreek, 60 people who took 25 grams daily showed significant improvements in blood sugar control and post-meal spikes.

Fenugreek actually belongs to the legume family (as do lentils) and the seeds are 50 percent fiber, which probably explains their blood sugar benefits. The seeds also contain an amino acid that appears to boost the release of insulin. An added bonus: They also reduce cholesterol.
