Testofen, a standardized extract of fenugreek

Testofen® is a fenugreek extract standardized to 50% Fenuside™.
Testofen® is a unique fenugreek extract standardized to a proprietary saponin glycoside matrix. These components in Testofen® may support healthy sexual desire and vitality*, muscle mass, free testosterone levels in men, and help reduce the normal symptoms of andropause in men.

Supplemental diets with Testofen®-containing products and regular resistance exercise can help men maintain healthy free testosterone levels already within the normal range, supporting multiple bodily functions.

Clinical research

Animal and human clinical trials have been conducted with Testofen®.

animal studies

Study Results: The 2010 Testofen® study on the reproductive systems of rats demonstrated that Testofen® supported an increase in the animal's levator muscle weight. This means that Testofen® supports muscle mass and body weight.

Human Free Testosterone and Performance Study*

Study Results: A double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled human clinical study of 60 subjects using Testofen® as the sole ingredient was conducted. The active group showed the following results, mainly statistically significant:

Significant anabolic activity as evidenced by BUN reduction (p < 0.05) compared to placebo*

Significant support for free testosterone (p < 0.05) compared to placebo group*

Immune support (p < 0.003) compared to placebo group *

Significant support for serum creatinine levels (p < 0.02) compared to the placebo group, meaning support for creatine uptake and recycling in muscle cells*

Significant support for prolactin (p < 0.04) compared to the placebo group, however this increase is within physiological limits for men*

Human study on adult male sexual desire

Study Result: In 2009, a 6-week, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical study was conducted in Australia in 60 healthy adult men. A formulation containing Testofen® as the main ingredient showed a statistically significant increase in active group sexual function, performance and satisfaction. * The study used the DISF-SR index. In addition, the study also found self-reported satisfaction in quality of life measures such as muscle strength, energy levels, and well-being, but their significance was not explored.

Significant decrease in body fat compared to baseline*

Supports maintenance of muscle size despite maintaining overall weight and reducing body fat* (although not significant)

Human study on andropause

A study was conducted in Australia with the aim of evaluating the efficacy of Testofen® on the symptoms of andropause. This short-term, randomised, double-blind, 12-week clinical trial was conducted in 120 male subjects between the ages of 40 and 75, who reported symptoms of andropause (male menopause) and were considered healthy.

Participants received a clinically validated questionnaire (AMS), consisting of seventeen questions in three subscales (psychological, somatic, and sexual). This questionnaire helped to measure the level of severity of andropause symptoms. Furthermore, this study also used the SR-DISF to measure the parameters.

Testofen® was shown to significantly reduce normal andropause symptoms in the active treatment group at 6 and 12 weeks in the AMS total score and all subdomains (except psychological subscore), compared to placebo.

Overall, Testofen® has been shown to effectively reduce the normal symptoms of andropause and improve sexual health by significantly increasing arousal, sexual desire, sexual activity, and free and total testosterone levels.
