Fenugreek or methi leaves will be available for just one more month or two, so while the greens are still available, let us give you a few reasons why you must stock on methi before it goes off shelves:

1. Improves Cholesterol Profile

Fenugreek leaves are rich in Steroidal saponins. Including fenugreek leaves in your daily diet helps in improving your cholesterol profile by reducing LDL and Trigylcerides.

2. Boosts Heart Health

Fenugreek is rich in water soluble fiber and Galactomannan, which boosts heart health. Also, the potassium content in fenugreek controls sodium levels in blood.

3. Fights Anemia

Fenugreek leaves are rich in Iron and make for a good remedy to treat anemia. Iron intake aids blood formation and promotes Red Blood Corpuscles and Hemoglobin levels.

4. Hair Health

A thick hair mask made with fresh fenugreek leaves and curd helps remove dandruff besides making your hair lustrous.

5. Beautiful Skin

Make a fresh paste with fenugreek leaves and see how its anti-microbial properties help soothe acne, redness and inflammation of skin. Fenugreek paste also helps reduce stubborn black spots, blemishes and acne marks.
Lastly, once the fenugreek greens are out of the season, you can stock up dried or kasuri methi, or continue to benefit from fenugreek seeds or methi dana.
