Fenugreek is more than just a culinary spice. Research shows it can increase testosterone levels, enhance libido, help control blood sugar, lower cholesterol levels, alleviate heartburn symptoms and reduce inflammation. 


When it comes to natural supplements aimed at enhancing testosterone levels, one ingredient that often stands out is fenugreek. Known for its numerous health benefits, fenugreek is a staple in many herbal remedies. But can it really boost testosterone? Let’s delve into what fenugreek is, its benefits, the science behind its impact on testosterone, and why it’s a key ingredient in our testosterone formula supplement, HIMMENSE “BOOST”. 


Fenugreek (scientifically known as Trigonella foenum-graecum) is a plant that's widely used both as a herb (the leaves) and a spice (the seeds). It's been used for centuries in various cuisines, particularly in Indian cooking. However, fenugreek also has a long history of medicinal use, with its seeds, leaves, and extracts being utilized for a range of health purposes.

Fenugreek has a high nutritional content of dietary fibre, vitamins and minerals (including iron, manganese and magnesium) as well as bioactive compounds such as amino acids, phenolic acids, alkaloids and saponins, so it comes as no surprise that it’s been used in alternative medicine for thousands of years. 


Scientifically supported health benefits of fenugreek include:

+ Increased testosterone levels and libido
+ Appetite control and weight management
+ Reduced blood sugar levels
+ Better digestion
+ Lower LDL (bad) cholesterol levels
+ Anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties
+ Hair growth and density


Testosterone is a crucial hormone for men, impacting muscle mass, energy levels, sexual function, libido, and overall well-being. Studies have shown that fenugreek can boost testosterone levels and lead to improved libido and sexual function. For example:

+ A controlled study involving 120 healthy men aged 43-70y, found that those taking Trigonella foenum-graecum (commonly known as fenugreek) seed extract at a dose of 600mg/day for 12 weeks experienced improved sexual function and increased testosterone levels.

+ A controlled study involving 60 healthy men, found fenugreek supplementation, combined with resistance training, resulted in a steep increase in levels of free testosterone vs a moderate increase for the placebo group.

+ A controlled study involving 60 healthy males between 25-52y, found 600mg of Fenugreek extract had an overall positive effect on physiological aspects of libido. In particular, there was a significant increase in the subdomains of sexual arousal and orgasm. This is likely due to the increase in testosterone levels and improved blood flow.

Fenugreek is rich in bioactive compounds like furostanolic saponins, which are believed to stimulate the production of luteinizing hormone. This hormone signals the testes to produce more testosterone. Additionally, fenugreek may inhibit the enzymes that convert testosterone to estrogen, thus maintaining higher levels of testosterone.
