Fenugreek seeds help restore a deadened sense of taste or smell. The loss of sense of taste occurs due to improper functioning of the salivary glands. They often become plugged with mucus and accumulated juices, causing swelling. Similarly, the sense of smell is obstructed due to long accumulations of mucus or other impurities in the nose where the olfactory nerves are based. Regular use of Fenugreek has proved beneficial in both these cases.
