FenuLife® is a unique source of galactomannan fiber produced from Trigonella foenum-graecum, a non-GMO proprietary variety of fenugreek. Fenugreek is a clover-like herb and its seeds have a characteristic smell and taste like maple syrup. The seeds used for FenuLife® have been naturally selected to have little characteristic odor.
Fenugreek has been widely used for various medicinal applications for thousands of
years and more recently its wider benefits have been researched in greater depth.
A clinical study demonstrated FenuLife® supports digestive health in individuals who experience
infrequent stomach acid reflux. FenuLife® had positive beneficial effects on heartburn symptoms as compared to a placebo, and had similar effects to a positive control. Previous clinical studies support the use of FenuLife® for healthy weight management. FenuLife®’s benefits are likely a result of increased satiety and positive effects on the glycemic index (how quickly foods that are eaten affect blood sugar levels).
