Description

Support for healthy glucose and lipid metabolism*
• Promotes healthy glycemic responses*
• Supports healthy cholesterol and triglyceride metabolism *

• Provides 2000 mg of fenugreek seed extract per day (5-8:1; 10-16 g dried equivalent)

Fenugreek seeds have been used in traditional medicine for over 2500 years.1 They help promote healthy glycemic responses by stimulating insulin signaling pathways and promoting glucose uptake in peripheral tissues.2,3* Animal research has found that the soluble fiber fraction of fenugreek can delay carbohydrate digestion and glucose absorption, which decreases postprandial glucose levels.4* Fenugreek seeds support healthy lipid metabolism by promoting cholesterol metabolism and the excretion of bile acids and neutral sterols.1,5* Collectively, this supports healthy levels of lipids, including total cholesterol, LDL, VLDL and triglycerides.1,5,6* Fenugreek may also help stimulate the production of breast milk, the optimal source of nutrition for babies.7,8*
