Fenugreek is a plant belonging to the "Trigonella" genus, a term that refers to the triangular shape of its seeds and to trigonelline, a characteristic component of this plant. This plant was already known to the Persians and the Ancient Egyptians. The cultivation of fenugreek in Europe was probably started by Benedictine monks. Fenugreek is a source of vitamins, in particular vitamin A, vitamin C and group B vitamins. It also provides minerals such as calcium and iron. Fenugreek has several beneficial properties that have seen it become a widespread dietary supplement: it is valued for its antiseptic and anti-inflammatory actions, as a tonic or as a hypoglycemic agent with emollient and expectorant properties. In fact, it is a "polyhedric" phytotherapic element rich in a variety of bioactive elements, with the particular characteristic of being "hypoglycaemic" due to hydrophilic fibres that hinder the activity of glucoactive enzymes (amylase), thus decreasing the presence of glucose in the blood.
