Abstract

Trigonella foenum graceum has a place in the fabaceae family fenugreek. It is composed of a variety of alkaloids, saponins, flavonoids, free fatty acids and lipids, vitamins, minerals mucilage and fibres. Trigonella foenum graceum have hepatoprotective activity, antioxidant activity, mast cell stabilizing activity, anticancer activity, antibacterial activity, cardioprotective effect and antigenotoxic activity. Traditional medicine in India and other parts of the globe has used Trigonella foenum graceum as carminative, lactation stimulant, laxative, antidiabetic effect, hypocholesterolemic influence, antioxidant potency, digestive stimulant action and hepatoprotective effect.

Keywords: fenugreek, antigenotoxic activity, axative, antibacterial activity, hypocholesterolemic influence, hepatoprotective effect
