Health First Fenugreek Seed
Traditionally used in Herbal Medicine to help promote milk production and secretion and to aid digestion
Fenugreek has a long history of use in Ayurvedic and Chinese Medicine for use as a digestive aid that helps maintain healthy blood glucose levels while reducing high blood lipid levels. It can also be used as an expectorant to relieve excess mucous, aid in milk production in nursing mothers, and has a positive effect on infant weight gain patterns.
After birth, infants are expected to lose an average 7% of their birth weight within the first 5 - 7 days of life. Studies show mothers who drank fenugreek tea saw the least amount of weight loss in their infants and also regained their birth weight the fastest. The mothers’ milk production was also significantly higher than the placebo group.
Fenugreek has shown a positive effect on libido, improving sexual function and increased testosterone levels in men.
Fenugreek is high in the compound sotolon which has a naturally occurring sweet smell. Individuals taking large doses often report the incidence of sweet-smelling or maple syrup-like scent to their urine.
Health First uses a standardized 4:1 ratio which significantly reduces the number of capsules an individual needs to take in order to achieve beneficial results. Health First achieves this by extracting the active herbal constituents from the plant through liquid extraction. The insoluble and inactive ingredients are then separated from the active solid components and gently spray-dried into a powder, keeping the active ingredients intact.
