¿What is Testofén®?
Testofen® is a fenugreek standardized extract to 50% Fenuside ™.
Testofen® is a unique fenugreek extract standardized to a proprietary saponin glycoside matrix. These components in Testofen® can 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 products containing Testofen® and the practice of regular resistance exercise can help men maintain healthy levels of free testosterone that are already within the normal range which supports multiple bodily functions.
Animal and human clinical trials have been done with Testofen®.
Study Results: The 2010 Testofen® study on rat reproductive systems demonstrated that Testofen® supported an increase in ani-levator muscle weight. This means that Testofen® support muscle mass and body weight.

Human Study on Free Testosterone and Performance *
Study Results: A double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled human clinical study of 60 subjects using Testofen® as the only 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 the placebo group
Immune support (p <0.003) compared to placebo group *
Significant support for serum creatinine levels (p <0.02) compared to placebo group signifying support for creatine absorption 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 Outcome: A 6-week, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical study was conducted in Australia in 2009 in 60 healthy adult men. A formulation containing Testofen® as the main ingredient showed a statistically significant increase in sexual function, performance and satisfaction of the active group. * The study used the DISF-SR index. Additionally, 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 analyzed.

Human Study on Andropause
A study was carried out in Australia with the objective of evaluating the efficacy of Testofen® in the symptoms of andropause. This 12-week, double-blind, randomized, short-term human clinical trial was conducted in 120 male subjects between the ages of 40 and 75, who reported having Andropause (male menopause) symptoms and were considered healthy.
Participants received a clinically validated questionnaire (AMS), which is made up of seventeen questions on three subscales (psychological, somatic, and sexual). This questionnaire helped 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 andropausal symptoms in the active treatment group at 6 and 12 weeks in the AMS total score and all subdomains (except the psychological subscore), compared to placebo.
Overall, Testofen® was shown to effectively reduce normal andropause symptoms and improve sexual health by significantly increasing arousal, sexual desire, sexual activity, and free and total testosterone levels.
