In many parts of the world it is used as a food and a spice, as well as for medicinal purposes. The seeds of the fenugreek plant contain several substances that are responsible for its healing powers.

One is mucilage, a gelatinous substance that is soothing to the digestive system and respiratory tract. Another is a group of alkaloids, which help in the treatment of diabetes by reducing the amount of sugar in the urine and improving glucose tolerance. Other components found in fenugreek include all of the B vitamins, vitamin A, and vitamin D.
