11 Incredible Benefits Of Fenugreek Tea
We know tea has benefits. But how about having a special tea that can even keep dangerous ailments at bay? Feeling cold in the winters? Or want to maintain general health? Fenugreek tea can work wonders. To know more, just keep reading!
What Are The Benefits Of Taking Fenugreek Tea?
1. Fenugreek Tea Improves Heart Health
One major benefit the tea has in this aspect is that it prevents the hardening of the arteries. Fenugreek tea is also known to lower the levels of cholesterol, which is one of the largest contributors of heart disease. One study shows how taking fenugreek every day can lower blood cholesterol in patients with coronary artery disease (1).
As per some research reports, this can be attributed to the ability of fenugreek to increase the levels of the antioxidant enzyme glutathione, which is known to boost heart health.
2. Aids Digestion
Fenugreek contains water-soluble fiber, which helps treat constipation. In fact, fenugreek seeds and the tea make for a great treatment for ulcerative colitis – thanks to the seeds’ anti-inflammatory properties (2). The tea has also been used in traditional Chinese medicine to treat digestive issues. Some sources also suggest that taking the tea post meals can help aid digestion.
3. Helps Fight Inflammation
Fenugreek contains linolenic and linoleic acids, both of which offer anti-inflammatory benefits (3). Traditional Chinese medicine also considers fenugreek as a powerful inflammation fighter.
Moreover, the tea can have similar effects on arthritis symptoms as well. In one Indian study, fenugreek was found to have beneficial effects on adjuvant-induced arthritic rats (4).
Other research also suggests that fenugreek mimics estrogen and can hence stall auto-immune conditions (arthritis being one of them).
4. Promotes Weight Loss
Some studies have shown that overweight people who took fenugreek seeds for six weeks reduced their fat consumption post the time frame. Another study showed how the intake of fenugreek could decrease fat consumption, even in healthy adults (5).
5. Aids Diabetes Treatment
The soluble fiber in fenugreek can lower blood sugar levels, and this is a boon for diabetes patients. It achieves this by slowing down the absorption of carbohydrates. And then, there is an Iranian study that tells us how taking fenugreek can have beneficial effects on type 2 diabetes (6).
6. Fenugreek Tea Boosts Brain Function
One compound of fenugreek (called trigonelline) was found to have brain-boosting effects (7). Further research also suggests that the tea can prevent age-related memory loss and other serious brain ailments like Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s (8).
Fenugreek tea can also reduce aluminum toxicity, thereby preventing brain disease.
7. Enhances Male Sexual Health
Some research suggests that men taking fenugreek tea can boost their libido by at least a quarter. This can be attributed to the saponins in fenugreek, which are believed to stimulate the production of sex hormones – like testosterone – in men.
Other preliminary studies show that the intake of fenugreek can improve sexual arousal, energy, and stamina in men. It also helps men maintain their normal healthy testosterone levels.
8. Is Beneficial During Breastfeeding
Women have been using fenugreek since ancient times to stimulate and increase milk flow. Some believe the oil in fenugreek can be responsible for this.
One Massachusetts study also calls fenugreek one of the potent herbal galactagogues (9). Though we need more extensive research on this, the tea sure is healthy for adequate breast milk production.
9. Offers Respiratory Relief
Reports suggest how fenugreek tea can ease congestion and the associated symptoms. In fact, the tea was even used by the Egyptians thousands of years ago. It can dissolve the mucus in the lungs, throat, and sinuses.
Other respiratory ailments like sore throat and cold cough can also be treated with fenugreek.
10. Fights Premature Aging
Fenugreek tea, especially the one made from germinated seeds, exhibits higher antioxidant activity, and this fights free radicals and prevents premature aging.
You can either consume this tea or blend the seeds with yogurt and apply the paste to your face twice every day (leave the paste on for 30 minutes and then wash off with cold water).
This method can also treat acne and blemishes. The lactic acid in yogurt exfoliates your skin, improving your overall skin health.
11. Treats Dandruff
One simple way of treating dandruff is to use fenugreek tea as a post-shampoo hair rinse. Once you are done shampooing, rinse your hair with the tea. You can also rinse your hair with the tea after using the conditioner.
These are the ways fenugreek tea can improve your health and life. And that takes us to the next question – how do you make the tea?
How To Make Fenugreek Tea
Making the tea is simple. You just need a few fenugreek seeds. Follow the procedure given below:
- Crush the seeds with a mortar and pestle.
- Boil water in a kettle. Pour it into a teapot or a container.
- Add the crushed fenugreek seeds. You can also add other herbs and loose tea leaves.
- Cover and steep the seeds for about 3 minutes.
- Strain through a tea strainer into a cup or another container.
- You can also sweeten with honey or stevia if you want.
- Drink the tea hot or cold.
Wasn’t that simple? So, does this mean that you can have as much of the tea as you want? No! Why?
What Are The Side Effects Of Fenugreek Tea?
- Issues During Pregnancy
Consuming fenugreek tea during pregnancy might lead to uterine contractions. Hence, avoid it.
- Might Lower Blood Sugar Way Too Much
As fenugreek can lower blood sugar, taking the tea along with blood sugar or diabetes medications can cause problems. Please check with your doctor before consuming the tea.
People allergic to peanuts, soybeans, green peas can be allergic to fenugreek tea as well. Hence, it is better they avoid it.
Fenugreek seeds are commonplace in the kitchen. Which is why making fenugreek tea a regular part of your routine shouldn’t be a problem.
