Another of ah juice’s special ingredients, available in the wintertime and early spring… Fenugreek! The herb has attractive little round leaves and a taste that has been described as “an odd combination of bitter celery and maple syrup”.
Fenugreek has wonderful healing attributes. Its unique hormonal enhancing properties aid in breast enlargement and it balances menstrual and menopausal hormones. It contains diosgenin which is used to make synthetic estrogen. The herb has also been used to increase sex drive in both men and women.
Fenugreek contains the amino acid, 4-hydroxyisoleucine, which increases insulin levels when blood sugar levels are high, helping to regulate diabetes and reduce cholesterol. Taking the herb is also thought to help prevent breast cancer.
Look for fenugreek in our juices whenever it is locally available.
