Fenugreek seeds have three special tests we will know them in this essay .

First of all we must know the seed origin so our weed's origin today must be written.
• The dried ripe seeds of Trigonella foenum-graecum, the Family: Leguminoseae.

Every seed has a special description of the shape , its color, its odour and its taste.

The active constituents of any thing are the mainly reason of its actions,  benefits and uses

• 3- There is Alkaloids as Choline and Trigonelline. 
• 4- The Steroidal sapogenin (Diosgenin) which occurs mainly in the embryo.

• 6- The Volatile constituents i.e. The  furanone (stolone) revealed to be important volatile constituent responsible for the characteristic odour of Fenugreek seeds . 
• 7- The  Free amino acids (4-hydroxyisoleucine, Arginine and Lysine). 

The action and uses are caused by it active constituents. 
Actions and uses
• 1- It is used as a laxative (mucilage).

• 6- Diosgenin is suitable precursor for the manufacture of steroid drugs such as cortisone and sex hormones.

Although fenugreek has benefits to has side effects too

We must balance in using this special seed to have only its benefits. 
Fenugreek occurs in Egypt and other countries. It is cheap in its price .
