Fenugreek (Trigonella foenum-graecum) is an aromatic medicinal and culinary herb popular around the world for both its flavor and health benefits. Available as both capsules and in dried herb (tea) form, it is best known for its traditional use in supporting healthy milk production in lactating women, and as digestive support. We carry fenugreek products in both tea and capsule form.
Fenugreek is a herb in the pea family that has been popular for thousands of years, as food and as medicine. Originating in the Middle East, its popularity spread throughout both Asia and Europe, where it is part of the traditional western herbal medicine tradition.
Traditionally fenugreek has been used as a herb thought to aid milk production in breastfeeding women, and support them through times of low supply. It is also favoured as a calming herb for supporting healthy digestion, and also for those who struggle to maintain balanced blood sugar levels.
Whilst the whole plant is edible, and the leaves and seeds are both popular in cuisine around the world, the seeds are most commonly used in herbal medicine. Capsules and tea are both included in HealthPost’s range of fenugreek, alone and combined with other herbs, to suit all tastes and needs.
