Health benefits of Kasuri Methi:
Improves Bowel Movement: Kasuri Methi can go a long way in improving one's bowel movement. It effectively treats constipation. Let us see how! Kasuri methi boasts of high soluble fibre content and acts as a laxative. When soluble fibres enter the intestine, they absorb water, thus growing larger in size. Their large size puts pressure on the intestine and forces the stool to pass out comfortably.
Cholesterol: Fenugreek leaf has an incredibly strong effect on blood lipid levels; it may also prove helpful in lowering atherosclerosis. Patients suffering from lipid fluctuations benefit hugely from this herb; the reason behind this is its capacity to cut down cholesterol levels, LDL and triglycerides while pulling up their HDL levels. Place some of these leaves in water and leave it overnight; next morning, strain the water and consume it.
It reduces the risk of blood clotting in the heart: Clotting in the heart may lead to massive heart attacks and strokes. Also, your heart gets shielded from other chronic ailments like atherosclerosis which is a condition of hardening of the arteries.
Diabetes: The healing properties of Kasoori methi are quite similar to cinnamon; due to its anti-diabetic elements, this spice is capable of controlling glucose metabolism. It also helps in preventing and treating Type II diabetes. Functioning in a similar manner to the well-known anti-diabetic medicine glibenclamide, this herb balances blood glucose homeostasis and reduces cellular insulin resistance. According to medical researchers, fenugreek lowers blood sugar levels of Type II diabetics by a huge percentage.
Reduce Blemishes: This herb named Kasuri methi is highly beneficial in reducing skin marks and blemishes. If there are some stubborn marks or spots on your face, consider using something natural like fenugreek leaves. Mix a spoon of fenugreek seed powder with a few drops of water; blend it continuously till it’s smooth in texture. Next, apply this paste on your face and leave it for fifteen minutes. Next, wipe it off with a wet cotton ball
For Long and Lustrous Hair: For long and lustrous hair, apply a thick fenugreek paste on your scalp and keep it for forty minutes. Next, rinse it off with cold water. You can repeat this practice once or twice a week. Considering its countless natural benefits, it works as an excellent alternative to the damaging and unsafe chemical found in local shampoos.
Recommended usage: Generally 1 Tsp. with water.
It is always better to consult your doctor/ physician/ dietitian.
