Abstract: The gastric protective effect of honey in combination with extract of fenugreek seeds was investigated in rats against ethanol-induced gastric damage. Macroscopically, oral administration of honey alone or honey in combination with seed extracts or with cimeidine induced a significantly decrease (p<0.05) in gastric lesions.

These observations showed that fenugreek aqueous seed extracts posse`s anti-ulcer potential.
