Fenugreek or Methi in Sanskrit is a herbaceous plant of the Fabaceae family, widely used as a spice in cooking, but also as a medicinal plant in India and the Maghreb. Fenugreek seed powder has many virtues. It is traditionally recommended as a fortifier and tonic in case of convalescence, lack of appetite or fatigue. It is also appreciated by athletes for its traditionally recognized stimulating effects. The Indians used it as a galactogenic agent, because it was known to stimulate the production of breast milk. In herbal medicine, Fenugreek is also known to help regulate blood sugar and cholesterol levels.

Rich in mucilages and steroidal saponins, Fenugreek is also an allied ingredient in cosmetics. In particular, it is known to sheath and beautify the hair and stimulate their growth. On the skin, its anti-aging effects are useful for combating the signs of premature aging, and its soothing effects are appreciated by delicate or acne-prone skin.
