It has soluble fibre, which helps to reduce especially LDL cholesterol, controls blood sugar levels, and helps to lose weight by suppressing appetite if taken overnight on an empty stomach. It also prevents colon cancer and helps in counteracting acid reflux or heartburn. The list of other significant health benefits of fenugreek seeds follows.


Weight Loss – Drinking water from the fenugreek on an empty stomach increases metabolism. Its consumption leads to heat generation which helps to lose weight. Fenugreek water consumption also decreases appetite and definitely helps to reduce weight.

Promotes improved digestion- The antacid is the fenugreek broth. The digestive system is strengthened by consuming it daily, and problems such as bloating can be easily avoided. Anti-inflammatory properties found in fenugreek help to calm the stomach.

Management of diabetes-Fenugreek promotes slower sugar absorption and also activates insulin. In drinking warm fenugreek water, diabetics and people on the borderline of diabetes reap many benefits.

Good for the kidneys-Fenugreek water flush out the toxins from the body, especially when drunk warm. For this reason, it's recommended as your wake-up elixir. It allows the kidneys to function and also reduces the risk of kidney stones.

Anti-inflammatory: Because of fenugreek's anti-inflammatory properties, this decoction aids arthritis sufferers, chronic coughs, bronchitis, ulcers in the mouth, boils etc.

Clears The Sinuses – Fenugreek has the properties to be a natural expectorant. It can make it easier for you to cough up phlegm, mucus, and all kinds of gross things that make your head feel like it's weighing a lot.

Anti-ageing benefits – While fenugreek won't actually dip your toe into the ultimate youth pool, at the very least it can make it more colourful to look at. It's said that the strong antioxidant content found inside the seeds of the herb will help battle the free radicals that are responsible for pushing the ageing process forward.

Reduces blood cholesterol – Fenugreek helps to lower cholesterol levels, particularly low-density lipoprotein ( LDL). They are known to be a rich source of steroidal saponins which prevent cholesterol and triglycerides from being absorbed.

Fever remedy and sore throat – Fenugreek can work wonders by nourishing the body when taken with a teaspoon of lemon and honey to reduce fever. Within fenugreek, the calming role of mucilage also helps to relieve cough and sore throat pain.

Helps prevent colon cancer- The content of fenugreek fibres (saponins, mucilage, etc.) binds to toxins in the food and flushes them out. That, in turn, helps to protect the colon's mucous membrane against cancer.
