For peo­ple with Type 2 di­a­betes, fenu­greek sig­nif­i­cantly low­ers un­healthy lev­els of blood sugar, ac­cord­ing to a re­view of 10 clin­i­cal tri­als pub­lished in Nutri­tion Jour­nal. A col­lab­o­ra­tion of re­searchers from the Har­vard School of Public Health and uni­ver­si­ties in Canada and Sin­ga­pore found that tak­ing at least 5 grams of fenu­greek seed pow­der daily pro­duced the best re­sults: the herb low­ered A1c lev­els, which mea­sure av­er­age blood sugar lev­els over a 2–3 month times­pan, by nearly 1 point—a sig­nif­i­cant amount. Re­searchers spec­u­late that the herb, pop­u­lar in Asian medicine and cook­ing, works by re­duc­ing blood sugar ab­sorp­tion and en­hanc­ing in­sulin pro­duc­tion.
