Fenugreek (Trigonella foenum graecum) is a green, leafy herb that is native to India and parts of the Middle East. Fenugreek seeds contain steroidal saponins (including diosgenin) and mucilaginous fiber, which are primarily responsible for the health benefits of fenugreek. Diosgenin has been shown to increase milk flow in lactating women. The steroidal saponins help to regulate the synthesis and utilization of cholesterol, and the fiber helps to regulate blood sugar levels.
