A TOP SEED
QIn a previous issue you have wwritten about the benefits oof fenugreek seed intake for ppeople with diabetes. I want to know ● Does fenugreek seed offer any benefits for healthy people? I mean, would it act as a preventive measure? I have been eating boiled seeds (1 tablespoon soaked overnight) every morning with curd. ● Does fenugreek seed help people with high cholesterol as well? My mother was diagnosed with high cholesterol a few years ago (her BP and blood sugar levels are normal however). She refuses to go on medication, so I’m wondering if can help bring down her cholesterol levels.
AYes, fenugreek seeds can be taken as a preventive measure. Its high fibre content (45.4 % to 32 % insoluble fibre and 13.3% soluble fibre) aids normal bowel movements. The fibre content also helps prevent blood sugar spikes and lowers blood cholesterol levels. Additionally fenugreek seeds are a rich source of omega-3 fatty acids. We all need to supplement our diets with omega-3 rich foods, especially vegetarians who don’t eat fish. So all in all, fenugreek seeds provide multiple health benefits for normal healthy individuals too.
