Background and Objectives: Savigh or the edible roasted flour has both remedial and nutritional applications. Despite the introduction of Savigh in the Iranian traditional medicine resources and particularly in Hadith books, this product has not been well-known yet. This review study aimed to investigate the therapeutic applications of lentil Savigh in Hadith books and Iranian traditional medicine in order to enhance the laboratory and clinical applications of this product.
Methods: For the purpose of the study, information related to lentil and its Savigh was collected from Hadith books, Iranian traditional medicine resources, and the English and Persian articles in the scientifically verified databases. Then, the importance and therapeutic properties of lentil Savigh were investigated.
Results: Lentil Savigh has a cold-dry temperament, produces black bile, and concentrates the blood. This product seems to be useful for the diseases caused by warmth or blood dilution, such as menorrhagia, thirst, blood excitation (Ghalayan), and the cases which require astringent properties, such as bleedings during pregnancy and postpartum hemorrhage.
Conclusion: According to the aforementioned therapeutic properties of lentil Savigh, as well as its accessibility and lower cost, this product seems to be useful for the treatment of several medical conditions. Moreover, it can be applied as a complementary treatment.
 
Keywords: Savigh, Menorrhagia, Lens-shaped seeds, Iranian traditional medicine, Complementary therapies.
