STANDARDISED FENUGREEK EXTRACT
Fenugreek (Trigonella foenum-graecum) is a herb that has long been used in alternative medicine. For our product we chose a highly dosed fenugreek extract and not just fenugreek powder commonly found in other products. Each capsule provides 500 mg of a 10:1 fenugreek extract which corresponds to 5000 mg of fenugreek seeds. Another advantage of using an extract is the concentrated amount of bioactive phytochemicals. The most prominent ones found in fenugreek seeds are so-called saponins which are thought to account for many of the helpful effects of the seeds. Our extract is standardised to 50% of these beneficial saponins. During production, our fenugreek seeds are heated in a special process which activates the beneficial ingredients and ensures any harmful constituents are kept out. Our fenugreek extract capsules are free from any additives, non-GMO and, of course, suitable for vegans.
THE IMPORTANCE OF VITAMINS & MINERALS
- One of the most prominent types of saponins found in fenugreek seeds is diosgenin, or phytoestrogen - a so-called phytohormone. Therefore, fenugreek is especially popular among women, particularly breastfeeding women.
