Remedy Description

The pods of fenugreek, Trigonella foenum-graecum (Leguminoseae), which

grows in Southwest Asia and around the Eastern part of the Mediterranean,

resemble goat's antlers. Consequently they are, according to the Doctrine

of Signatures, regarded as a remedy for impotence, and were included as

such already in the earliest list of Chinese medical plants.

They contain, inter alia, steroidal saponins, which can be hydrolysed to

diosgenin, which, in turn, can be used as a starting material for the

production of som sex hormones.

The roasted pods are eaten as such in many parts of the world, but can
