The dried ripe seeds of Fenugreek, Trigonella foenum-graecum, are a mainstay in Middle Eastern and South Asian cooking. The seed contains saponins, flavonoids, oils, proteins and a high amount of mucilage. It is the mucilage content that makes it good for soothing mucous membranes; especially those of the digestive tract.
Fenugreek is found in several internal and external products, usually for its soothing effects. Fenugreek seeds are "Approved" by the German Commission E to stimulate appetite, and externally (poultice) for soothing inflammations.
