A lot of clinical trials have been performed to find out how useful is fenugreek and whether it is actually beneficial or not as claimed by Ayurveda.

This is my first encounter with such a plant called Fenugreek. I checked the image and it looks like we have a counterpart here with the name of Talinum although I am not sure. Anyway, I am interested in herbs and other plants that have curative properties because I believe that the hanging garden in the Bible has all the medicines that humans need.
