Does Fenugreek Really Work?

Trigonell foenum-graecum or Fenugreek is a plant belonging to the Fabaceae family. Fenugreek derived its name from the Latin word meaning “Greek-hay”. Fenugreek grows well in serpentine soil and is mainly cultivated for its seed as spice and its leaves as “greens” Commonly found in the North African, Middle Eastern and Indian subcontinents fenugreek seeds are used as spice on many Indian dishes such as curry, dhokla and roti paste. Pharmaceutically, Fenugreek is also valued as a food supplement for lactating mothers. Especially because Fenugreek seeds are considered generally as a galactagogue or a carrier of a natural occurring compound that promotes lactation especially for humans. Fenugreek, as claimed by some laboratory analysis, shows the presence of phytoestrogens which are essentially plant derived chemicals imitating female hormones. Its active ingredient for enhancing lactation is identified as diosegenin. Dioesgenin intake shows a 20% increase in milk volume per day according to some studies.
