            1. Fenugreek total saponins exist in the plants of fenugreek seed; it could increase the test. 

                level of body by stimulating the body to produce luteinizing hormone and dehydroepiandrosterone. 

                It has been used to treat sexual dysfunction, and to stimulate the muscle growth. Both effects are due 

                to its effect of increasing the test. levels. The present study indicates that its main components, 

                Furostanol saponins,formerly diosgenin saponin, plays a decisive role in the active ingredient. 

                 Aerobics athletes found that after taking the fenugreek saponins, their appetite had been improved.

                That is considered to be a good thing for those people who want to increase their weight.


             2. 4-hydroxyisoleucine is a non-protein amino acid which exists in fenugreek plants, 

                 mainly in fenugreek seeds, with the effect of promoting the insulin secretion. 

                 In addition, 4-hydroxy-isoleucine could enhance the creatine entering into the muscle cells. 

                 It could improve the muscle strength and lean muscle mass, and increase the strength and size of muscle cells. 

                 4-hydroxyisoleucine, a natural phytochemical extracted from the Fenugreek herb, 

                 has been scientifically shown to increase carbohydrate storage in muscle cells while decreasing 

                 carbohydrate fat storage through the sensitizing of insulin receptors in muscle tissue. 

                 4-hydroxyisoleucine has also been shown to interfere with the process by which the body converts muscle protein 

                 to sugar for energy. This encourages fat loss (instead of muscle break down) and aids in the retention of 

                 calorie-burning lean muscle as you lose fat.
