4) Fenugreek seeds may reduce various digestive ailments, including heartburn, upset stomach, indigestion, and flatulence.

5) Fenugreek seeds are used as a natural remedy for hair loss or accelerating hair growth. They also have a use in preventing and treating dandruff. Additionally, they make hair follicles healthier. For maximum benefits, you can eat fenugreek seeds or apply their extracts topically on the scalp.

6) As fenugreek is rich in fibre and antioxidants, it helps in flushing out harmful toxins from the body and thus, aids digestion. In some cases, fenugreek tea is used to relieve indigestion and stomach pain. You can even drink fenugreek decoction early in the morning to deal with constipation.

As a seasoning or flavouring agent, fenugreek is generally considered safe. But side effects are still possible.
