Testofen®

Testofen® is a fenugreek extract standardised for 50% Fenuside™.

Fenugreek is a herb from the pea family that has been used for centuries in traditional medicine and as a cooking spice. It contains over 100 phytochemical constituents including furostanol saponins and steroidal saponins.

Testofen® is a unique extract of fenugreek that has been standardised to a proprietary matrix of saponin glycosides that Gencor has named Fenuside™. This makes Testofen® ideal for supporting healthy vitality, muscle mass and free testosterone levels.

Testofen® can be used to help maintain healthy testosterone levels which in turn, helps to support multiple bodily functions.

Clinical research

Human clinical trials have been conducted on Testofen® to assess its health benefits.

Human study on free testosterone and performance*

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

  • 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 placebo group signifying support for Creatine uptake and recycling in muscle cells*

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

  • Significant decrease in body fat compared to baseline*

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