Fenugreek is one of the oldest cultivated medicinal plants native to southern Europe and Asia. The fenugreek seeds act as a binder, which replace inexpensive commercial gum binders. They are naturally rich in many vitamins and minerals. They contain polysaccharides, which lower bad cholesterol and simultaneously bind to toxins to be expressed by the body. Fenugreek seeds contain an amino acid that lowers glucose absorption, which lowers blood sugar, making them a recommended food ingredient for diabetic diets. They are also an excellent source of fiber, which aids in digestion. Fenugreek seeds also contain many powerful phytonutrients, which aid in multiple digestive and neurological functions.
