Spice Spotlight - Fenugreek

Fenugreek

Fenugreek  is an annual plant in the family Fabaceae. The plant has small round leaves, is cultivated worldwide as a semi-arid crop, and is a common ingredient in dishes from the Indian Subcontinent

 

A June 2011 study at the Australian Centre for Integrative Clinical and Molecular Medicine found that men aged 25 to 52 who took a fenugreek extract twice daily for six weeks scored 25% higher on tests gauging libido levels than those who took a placebo.   Also in Ancient Greek texts Pedanius Dioscorides, an ancient Greek pharmacologist, makes extensive remarks about its anti-inflammatory properties.
