- Reducing cholesterol level
|Effective ingredients|| |
|Administration and Dosage|
2 full tablespoon in one glass of warm water, half an hour before breakfast and before sleeping, daily.
|Pharmacology and Mechanism of action|
Fecal bile acid and cholesterol excretion by fenugreek administration. This may be secondary to a reaction between the bile acids and fenugreek-derived saponins causing the formation of micelles too large for the digestive tract to absorb. Another hypothesis attributes the cholesterol-lowering activities to the fiber-rich gum portion of the seed that reduces the rate of hepatic synthesis of cholesterol. It is likely that both mechanisms contribute to overall effect.
Moreover, the galactomannan-rich soluble fiber reaction of fenugreek may be responsible for the antidiabetic activity of the seed. Insulintrophic and antidiabetic properties also have been associated with amino acid 4-hydroxyisoleucine that occurs in fenugreek at a concentration of about 0.55%. In vitro studies have indicated that this amino acid causes direct pancreatic β-cell stimulation. Delayed gastric emptying and inhibition of glucose transport also have been postulated as possible mechanisms.
