Fenugreek seed has long been used by civilisations to treat ailments and has recently been thought of as useful for diabetes.
It has a taste like maple syrup or licorice, and is a popular ingredient for curries, soups and stews.
However it can also be brewed to make a tea for medicinal purposes. Some people make it to control blood pressure, others for the common cold, but researchers are still speculating about whether it helps the body produce insulin. (Always talk to your doctor before regularly consuming fenugreek tea.)
It’s easy to make the tea. Steep 1 teaspoon of organic whole fenugreek seeds in a cup of boiled water for 5 minutes. Pour the water through a strainer to remove the seeds. You won’t have to sweeten it because the tea will naturally be very sweet.
