Re: fenugreek

Fenugreek is a herb, that lowers the blood sugar, has other benefits as well.

Today,modern Science has revealed that fenugreek helps to control cholesterol and regulate blood glucose. Fenugreek seed lowers overall serum cholesterol, and reduces triglycerides. In one human study, 2.5 grams of fenugreek per day for 3 months significantly reduced these cardiac risk factors. These activities are linked to a group of soluble fibers, most notably galactomannans. The galactomannans also possess fat-sequestering properties, binding directly to dietary fat and reducing its absorption into the body. If you consume fenugreek or its extract with a meal, some of the fat from that meal will be eliminated from your body, without producing weight gain.

The glucose regulating, anti-diabetic properties of fenugreek seed are linked to a novel free amino acid, 4 hydroxyisoleucine. This compound stimulates insulin secretion, thereby limiting the extent to which blood glucose is elevated. 4 hydroxyisoleucine promotes insulin secretion and inhibits the rise of blood glucose, thus helping to stabilize blood Sugar and reduce body fat production. In one human study, 15 grams of fenugreek daily significantly reduced glucose levels after meals.

Modern science, lol, this is has been around long before modern Science and used for lowering sugar. I think you may get by on far less than fifteen grams a day. This really works.
