Phytochemical screening and study of antioxidant activity of fenugreek seed
. Int J.
Four bacterial cultures including Bacillus subtilis (one Gram positive), Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Proteus mirabilis, Agrobacterium tumefaciens(three Gram negative bacteria) were used to check the antibacterial potential of Cu nanoparticles (5% to 25% concentration) synthesized from fenugreek seed
The synergistic anti-diabetic effect of all three constituents of the nanopartclies, Au, Ag and phytocompounds in the fenugreek seed
extract clearly explains the results.
A multicenter clinical study to determine the efficacy of a novel fenugreek seed
(Trigonella foenum-graecum) extract (Fenfuro) in patients with type 2 diabetes.
Chemical composition of wheat flour and fenugreek seed
Investigating the effect of fenugreek seed
powder and garlic powder in the diet on immune response of commercial laying hens' egg.
The principal hypoglycemic alkaloid in fenugreek seed
is trigonelline (0.2-0.36%).
No effect was noticed with 2g of fenugreek seed
powder per 50 g carbohydrate portion of white bread and jam.
Currently, a number of studies on animal and human have indicated that extractions from fenugreek seed
have antidiabetic, hypocholesterolemic, and antioxidant effect.
Studies have shown that fenugreek seed
has been used for controlling dysmenorrhea and mastalgia (14, 16, 25, 26).
helped provide sensory and nutraceutical functionality.
Its long history has prompted a number of small clinical trials to assess the efficacy and safety of fenugreek seed
powder in the treatment of type 1 and type 2 diabetes (reviewed in Basch et al.
In the experimental studies on the effects of fenugreek seed
on diabetic animals, the seeds were reported to reduce blood glucose and cholesterol levels.
(1990), 24 hour urinary excretion of glucose was decreased by 64% in subjects that were administered 100 g of defatted fenugreek seed
powder for 10 days.
A fenugreek seed
extract selectively reduces spontaneous fat intake in overweight subjects.
