I first got turned on to Fenugreek at the Optimum Health Institute (outside Austin, Texas), where I try to go a couple of times a year for a week at a time for several days of juice fasting, ''sandwiched" by several days of raw, organic meals and all the wheatgrass one could consume!

Fenugreek (according to OHI's literature) is a blood purifier, it cleanses the liver, kidney, and pancreas, it soothes mucous membranes and reduces inflammation.

1 tablespoon of fenugreek (sprouted) (again according to OHI's literature) contains: 2.55 grams protein, 6.47 grams carbs, minerals: K, P, Mg, Ca, Na, Fe, Zn, Mn, Cu, Se, vitamins: C, B3, B1, B2, B9, A, and it has 2.73 grams of fiber.

I must say that sprouted fenugeek tastes great! I have heard that the tea is not so pleasant...

OHI used a lot of sprouted fenugreek during our days of the food detox portion. I have heard that it is also very good for the lungs. BTW, my boobs never got any bigger since I have brought this into my regular diet. Also remember, sprouted seeds have much more nutrients than the grown plant (per weight).
