What is it used for?

  • Tests on animals have shown that Fenugreek does reduce cholesterol but this is yet to be backed up by research on humans
  • Fenugreek contains high levels of mucilage which, when mixed with water, becomes gelatinous and soothes inflamed tissue and can act as a mild-inflammatory or the symptoms of arthritis
  • Can be taken internally to relieve a sore throat or cough

How to prepare

Make a decoction for the best way of benefiting from Fenugreek: bring to boil two teaspoons of bashed seeds in a cup-sized amount of water and simmer for up to ten minutes and enjoy up to three times a day. You can improve the bitter flavour by adding honey, lemon or even mint. HOW TO MAKE A DECOCTION
