Hello people !
Today I am up with something that you must have heard of many times but I am sure you would not know that this small thing has uncountable benefits.
We try to put an end to our skin and hair issues by buying products that claim to work on it, not knowing that those issues could be solved out at home at a lesser cost.
Fenugreek or Methi is a plant, which is known by most of the non-medical background people for its usage in kitchen. Its bitter in taste and all know that leaves of it are used in making curries, parathas etc. and seeds are used as a spice for enhancing the taste of food but did you know that it is a rich reservoir of medical properties?
Methi seeds are extremely effective in solving hair and skin problems.
Read on to know how it can help you in several ways-
Top Health Benefits Of Fenugreek/Methi Seeds
1. Lose weight- Many of you might know this benefit of methi seeds, but still I would write it up. It suppresses appetite, you can simply soak some seeds overnight in water and drink that water in morning and yes chew those seeds while you are empty stomach, the fiber present in fenugreek swells and fills your stomach and thus suppresses your appetite, so you can avoid over-eating with it.
Make it a part of your daily routine and you’ll notice differences.
2. Say bye bye to dandruff- Soak methi seeds over night, take them out of water, make a fine paste of it and mix curd to it. Apply the paste on scalp, it will prevent dandruff and help you with scalp problems. BYE BYE DANDRUFF!!! 😉
3. Stay Pimple free- Soak methi in water overnight, make a paste of it and apply it directly on acne/pimple, it will heal and remove it completely.
4. Reduces menstrual cramps- Menstrual cramps are every women’s problem. Methi helps you with them also.
5. Cholesterol and Diabetes problems- Make methi a part of your daily life and it will lessen your exposure to heart and sugar problems. Fenugreek capsules are also available in market.
6. Skin problem- If you have boils, abscess, burns it will help you in that also. All you have to do is make powder of dry methi seeds, take lukewarm water put some powder in it, take a cloth, dip it and apply cloth directly on the place the problem is.
7. For fever- It helps when you are in fever, take soaked seeds 2-3 times a day and it will help you out.
8. Acid reflux- It helps you in heartburn or acid problems also, simply sprinkle a pinch or methi powder in your curry and it will comfort you.
9. Increases the production of breast milk- Due to the presence of diosgenin, it is advised to lactating mothers to be taken as a MUST HAVE.
And the list goes on…..
All must have seen methi in the form of seeds but they are available in capsules and powder form also. Don’t think that there are no side effects of it and gulp it in large quantity; it has its side effects if taken in odd quantity. You may suffer nausea and gastric problems. Do not take it if you are pregnant, consult your doctor first and then take it if advised.
