The culinary herb fenugreek may not be on your spice rack, but if you have type 2 diabetes, you may want to consider adding it. Several recent studies have brought increased attention to fenugreek and how it may help those who have diabetes.
Fenugreek has a long history of use
Fenugreek seeds (Trigonella foenum graecum) were first used during ancient Egyptian times for treatment of digestive disorders, menopausal symptoms, and inducing childbirth. Today, fenugreek is still valued for its ability to ease digestive problems, but it is also proving itself to be effective in managing type 2 diabetes.
