Fenugreek by Dr. Christopher is extremely helpful to the digestive system, mainly due to its mucilaginous properties, which triggers a sympathetic response in the other mucous membranes of the body. This oftentimes occurs in the respiratory and urinary system. The seeds of this herb are very high in mucilage contents.
Fenugreek is widely used for a variety of different ailments. It has been used historically for the treatment of wounds, abscesses, arthritis, bronchitis, and digestive disorders. The active constituents of this herb are the steroidal saponins, which account for its many health benefits, such as the inhibition of cholesterol absorption. The seeds are high in dietary fiber, which may be the main reason for its ability to help lower blood sugar levels in diabetes. It also helps with ailments such as helping to lower cholesterol and atherosclerosis and other related health issues.
As a dietary supplement take 2 capsules before each meal with 12 oz of water or as prescribed by your health care professional.
