How much Fenugreek???

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Does anyone have experience with Fenugreek? How much should I start off taking? Please let me know your experiences with it and any advice or tips you may have as well. Should I take it before, after or with my meals?

Thank you so much for taking the time to reply!

I took 3 capsules 4x/daily, with meals (except the 4th time which I took in the middle of the night). It usually works better in combination with other herbs like blessed thistle.

If you are taking 600 mg caplets, then you should be taking 3 caplets 3-4 times a day.

It might sound silly, but when you're urine and sweat smell like maple syrup, it's working at it's greatest effectiveness.

I think that it depends on who you talk to! I went to Whole Foods to buy mine and asked them there, and they said 6 capsules 3x a day...I wasn't too sure, and then I talked to LC and she also said 6-7 3x a day!

Just beware...once you start you can't just stop...You HAVE to wean yourself off of them!!!!! I took them for almost 8 months...and took quite some time to wean off...

Also...FYI my ex-boss took them and she said that she was constipated most of the time...never happened to me...everyone is different!

This is what I did to re-establish my supply with dd. My armpits smelled like maple syrup.
