fenugreek seed extract

Fenugreek is a herb similar to clover and is native to the Mediterranean region, southern Europe, and western Asia. The seeds are used in cooking, in medicine, and to hide the taste of other medicine. Fenugreek seeds smell and taste similar to maple syrup.

Scientific research on hair growth confirm that Trigonella has the potential components to stimulate hair growth and that fenugreek can help to inhibit the 5-alpha reductase, which comes with the added benefit of reducing DHT levels. Reducing DHT levels means healthier thicker hair.

Fenugreek is also known for topical hair Strengthening especially when blended with coconut oil as we have done with our HAIRGENX CoCo formula. This combination is known as an amazing potion for thicker fuller hair. Hair is strengthened from the roots as well as combating oily greasy hair.

This topical action of Fenugreek is due to the antecedent, protein and nicotinic acid in fenugreek which strengthen the hair shaft and prevents breakage. Fenugreek is extremely effective in strengthening the hair from the roots and treating follicular problems.

Fengreek seed extract has been further proven to improve sexual function in both men and women.
