Re: Fenugreek....not as potent?
Honestly, I wouldn't bother buying fenugreek pills. Huge waste of $, IMO. You can buy fenugreek seed online or sometimes in your local grocery (look for bags of khaki-colored seed labeled "Methi" or "Hilbeh" amongst the Indian or Middle Eastern spices). It generally costs about $4 a lb, and in my experience is always fresher and more effective than what comes in the pills.
I think you're safe to assume that the bottle of pills you have is stale, or contains more grass clippings than fenugreek (the herbal supplement market is astonishingly poorly regulated). But there's probably no harm in seeing if it gives you a boost before throwing the bottle away!
