Methi or Fenugreek is an amazing plant! Both the leaves and seeds are medicinal and highly nutritious. It has been found to be a galactogogue, which means it helps increase breast milk production. Since it is bitter, it slows down digestion and helps in slowing the rate at which sugar is absorbed by the digestive system. This has made scientists look at using methi seeds therapeutically for diabetes.
