As far back as biblical times, Fenugreek has been used to promote increased flow of breast milk. Fenugreek is native to Europe and Asia and is a member of the legume family. Like Red Cover it is a phytoestrogen. Phytoestrogens are plants chemicals that have properties similar to the female hormone estrogen. A compound named diosgenin which is also found in the Fenugreek is what is attributed to the increase of breast milk. Scientist believe that the reason Fenugreek increases the production of breast milk is because Fenugreek stimulates sweat glands and the human breast is a modified sweat gland.
The Fenugreek plant is grown in the US as well as in other countries to be used as a food condiment, dye and medicine. The plant blooms with white flowers in early summer. These flowers turn into long slender pods which hold the brown seed which is used to create commercial products. In India and China this herb is used to treat arthritis, improve digestion, and treat upper respiratory ailments such as asthma and bronchitis.
