To hear the sweet tale, just read more.
After about four days of persistently popping handfuls of pills several times a day, I noticed that something didn't smell right. Upon further investigation I realized that the something was me — and I smelled just like maple syrup! Not exactly the scent I typically go for. I was completely freaked out when I called the doctor but she said, "Oh yeah, that is how you know it's working — the smell should go away when you stop taking the herbs." I continued pumping up my supply with the herbal supplements (and the stink did go away once I stopped), but that kind of information would have come in handy. Thanks doc.
I now know that a syrupy scent is to be expected when taking Fenugreek, but did you ever notice a smell when taking the herb?
