For the last two months I have been running a test on fenugreek seeds.
Back in India, one of the traditional remedies has been to eat fenugreek seeds. In the local language, Hindi, they are known as Methi Seeds.
What do I do?
Every night I take a spoonful of the seeds and soak it in water. Every morning first thing after I wake up and check my fasting sugars, I eat these soaked seeds. They can be bitter but over time you adjust to them. I just drink all the water and chew up the soaked seeds. Sometimes I need more water to push them down.
I feel like my post breakfast sugars are down from where I used to be. My feeling is a drop of about 10-20 point.
I suspect that the fenugreek seeds probably have some vitamins or minerals that help, but a lot of the help is from the fact that they are so high in fiber. Eating lots of natural fiber in the morning helps the gut get used to consuming sugars slowly. Also I end up drinking atleast a big glass of water. I have hear that consuming lots of water in the morning is also beneficial for sugar control.
You might want to give it a try. I know there are some Fenugreek tablets available in the health store, but I think going to the natural source is probably better. I bought my seeds form a local Indian Grocery store. If you do not have one close by, you can check online. Buying the seeds from other places might be a pricey endeavor.
