FENFURO can help to maintain blood glucose levels and cholesterol levels in a better way and can also help to prevent further complications due to diabetes.
What are the ingredients of FENFURO?
FENFURO is a single ingredient product. Each capsule of FENFURO contains 500mg of Furostanolic Saponins, derived from Fenugreek Seeds.
Wheather FENFURO is Ayurvedic/Allopathic product?
It's a standardized extract (with defined Active Ingredient) processed derived from Fenugreek seeds as per Pharmacopoeia standards.
How FENFURO can help to manage diabetes?
- FENFURO is dual action insulin sensitizer.
- In presence of high fiber Furostanolic Saponins, cells are more sensitive to insulin & an increase in number of insulin receptor sites occurs which are responsive to insulin to stimulate the cells ability to burn glucose ( i.e. newer insulin receptors with definite insulin sensitizing activity due to specific effects on the islets of langerhans in the pancreas)
- High fiber Furostanolic Saponins delays the rate of gastric emptying and slow carbohydrate absorption resulting in reducing insulin requirements. THEREBY BRINGS EUGLYCEMIC EFFECTS.
- Furostanolic Saponins also increase peripheral utilization of insulin & insulin sensitizing activity THEREBY BRINGS DOWN THE HYPERINSULLINAMEA the root cause of DIABETIC COMPLICATIONS
- High fiber Furostanolic Saponins increases viscosity of the digesta thereby inhibiting cholesterol absorption from small intestine and also the inhibition of bile acid re-absorption from the terminal ileum. Thus there is decrease in VLDL, LDL & Triglycerides levels.
How FENFURO helps in Type -1 diabetes.
- Patient should go for C-peptide test if it is very low, FENFURO can be added to existing medicinal regimen for three months regularly. After three months if any improvement is noticed in C-peptide level, patient can continue taking FENFURO otherwise FENFURO can be withdrawn.
- If C-peptide test is normal. Probably it is MODY (Maturity-onset diabetes of the young) case & FENFURO can help to regenerate newer insulin receptor sites & thereby insulin dosage can be reduced and diabetic complication can be controlled by reducing hyperinsulinemia.
How FENFUROTM helps in Type -2 diabetes.
Regular use of FENFURO as per prescribed dosage can help in reduction of HbA1c level thereby OHA/Insulin dosages can be reduced.
Is there any trail conducted with FENFURO?
Extensive pre-clinical studies at prestigious research institutes viz. National Institute of Pharmaceutical Education and Research(NIPER), Mohali and University Institute of Pharmaceutical Sciences, Panjab University, Chandigarh indicate safety and also efficacy of the product in managing blood sugar and cholesterol levels.
Why FENFURO is expensive as compared to other OHAs?
FENFURO is a single ingredient phytochemical product derived from Fenugreek Seeds through a novel and innovative process (USA Patent Granted). As the process involved is very unique, it makes FENFURO expensive as compared to other synthetic drugs

- Shortage of or defective, imperfect insulin produced by the body
- Hereditary. Either parent suffering from Diabetes
- When and if insulin produced by the body is not assimilated in the blood circulation
- Unequal balance of insulin and glucose; excessive waste of insulin. Quantum of glucose in the body overweighing that of insulin
- Stress, fear & tension
- Wrong signals from the brain to the pancreas produces insufficient insulin
- Mental fatigue
- Melancholy and despair
