Their many products are sold in most countries of the world in pharmacies, herbal stores and also online. They cover a large variety of health concerns.

The blend acts as an aid in the proper functioning of both respiratory and digestive systems, combining the decongestant and expectorant properties of thyme with the bowel regulatory properties of fenugreek. It can help relieve allergies, treat bronchitis and cough, while also thinning the blood and lowering blood sugar levels. Therefore, it can improve most people’s health if taken properly. Users have responded positively to the product, reinforcing the well-known fact that the two main ingredients of Fenu-Thyme have been widely used in many cultures worldwide.


1) Fenu-Thyme at a Glance

A bottle of Fenu-Thyme has 100 capsules of 900mg each, containing a mix of Fenugreek Seeds and Thyme Leaf. For regular use there is a recommended intake of two capsules, two to three times a day, preferably with food. For a more intensive usage, you may take it up to four times a day.

3) Does Fenu-Thyme Work and it is Safe?

The Fenu-Thyme formula has been subjected to many clinical studies worldwide, and it has been established that the effects of each ingredient, Fenugreek Seeds, and Thyme Leaves, do not impede the Effectiveness of the other.

Fenugreek has been used in diabetes treatment because it has a significant effect on blood sugar levels and helps the organism reduce high cholesterol. It has a high concentration of the emollient called mucilage and also high fiber content.

Thyme is very effective in relieving symptoms affecting the nasal cavity, sinuses, throat, and lungs and has been used like this for centuries.

It is also strongly advised against using it if you have thyroid problems or exhibit stomach ulcers. Expect nausea and stomach problems if using doses that are significantly larger than standard ones. Also, since the effects on blood sugar and blood density are significant, you should not use this product if you are already taking medication that already has these effects.

This does wonders for your lungs, especially in the cold season. I have used it every time I got a cold and it worked well. I also take it when my allergies are kicking in and it works there too.

I started using fenu-thyme 4 days ago and am experiencing slight dizziness…can it be one of side effects of the medicine?


I suffer from bronchial asthma and this product always manages to relieve my symptoms during an attack. I’ve used it for years and it helped me a lot.
