    Mimics Testosterone - Without The Downsides

    Fenugreek extract increases the amount of Furostanol Glycoside and Saponin Content in your blood - which have been shown to mimic testosterone (without actually increasing it).

    In essence, you’ll get all of the benefits of increased testosterone WITHOUT the negative side effects typically associated with testosterone boosters.

     

    Boost Your Libido & Supports Lean Muscle Mass Growth

    Your testosterone levels (which Fenutrax™ mimics) are widely believed to be linked to your sex drive. In other words - regularly taking FenuTrax may promote your libido (for some in a dramatic way!).

    Increased natural testosterone levels have also been shown to support:

    • Lean muscle growth
    • Reducing body fat around the abdomen
     

    A double blind study showed fenugreek seed extract to have significant impact on both upper- and lower-body strength and body composition compared to placebos.

    Fenugreek Seed Extract

    • Arouses sexual desire
    • Supports healthy testosterone levels
    • Helps to maintain cholesterol in a healthy range
    • Supports the digestive system
    • May support milk production during lactation
    • Rich in Saponins and Fenusides

    Fenugreek (Trigonella foenum-graecum) has long been used as a herb, a spice, and for its sprouts in European, Arabic, and Asian Cuisine. The leaves are a key component of many Indian curries, while the seeds are often included in pastes such as çemen or as an ingredient in Pita breads. It is also often used as a traditional herbal tea tincture.

    The seeds contain abundant amounts of flavonoids, coumarins, phenolics, and alkaloids. Fenugreek seed extract is a great source of saponins. This class of steroid and/or triterpenoid glycosides compounds are highly bioactive and have been reported to have a role in many biological effects [1].

    Some of the benefits associated with the use of fenugreek in its various forms include supporting milk production, support of testosterone at healthy levels, and supporting the maintenance of glucose metabolism. A key compound of fenugreek is 4-hydroxyisoleucine, which may help to support healthy insulin secretion in the pancreas [2].

    In addition to these biological benefits, fenugreek seeds are a great source of dietary fiber, iron, calcium, phosphorus, vitamin C, and many of the B vitamins.

    An unfortunate side effect of taking fenugreek extract supplements is that it can create a maple syrup smell in body excretions. This is caused by the sotolone HDMF. This metabolite largely passes through the body and may be excreted as sweat [3].

    Effect on Appetite and Analgesia

    Fenugreek may have beneficial effects on modulating appetite. Studies in rats and humans suggest that supplementation of aqueous fenugreek extract may enhance the desire to eat in healthy individuals [4, 5]. No effects on appetite were noticed in obese people, but supplementation did support healthier levels of fat intake and the feeling of being full (satiety) [6, 7].

    When Fenugreek was injected into rats, analgesic properties were reported. It is thought that these effects were facilitated via the spinal serotonergic system [8]. Similar findings were reported when rats were provided with fenugreek as a seed extract at relatively high dosages over a two week period [9].

    Support of Glucose Metabolism and Digestion

    Fenugreek may be able to inhibit amylase and maltase digestive enzymes [10]. In vivo the administration of fenugreek extract may support plasma insulin levels in rats, furthermore in vitro studies demonstrated that 4-hydroxyisoleucine (one of the bioactive compounds of fenugreek) might support insulin secretion and help to maintain cholesterol at a healthy range [J]. Further to this, a small trial reported that it might help support the maintenance of serum glucose levels in healthy individuals [11].

    Healthier levels of glycemic control were observed when using seed extract subfraction supplements in dogs. The bioactive components were found to be contained in the fiber rich testa and endosperm parts of the seed.

    Support of healthier sugar and total cholesterol levels was reported when people with high blood glucose levels and poor cardiovascular health were given 2.5 g of Fenugreek twice a day for three months [12].

    Libido

    Fenugreek has been reported to increase sexual drive in men [13]. A small trial using 60 healthy men (given a twice daily dose of 300 mg Fenugreek extract and mineral formulation in the form of Testofen) reported an enhanced overall arousal of sexual desire and support of healthy testosterone levels.

    Support of Milk Production

    Fenugreek has long been used as a traditional herb for the support of milk production in nursing mothers [14]. It is traditionally suggested that as sweat and milk glands are similar that fenugreek may stimulate them in a similar manner [15]. It is thought to be the most commonly used herbal galactagogue (a substance believed to enhance and maintain milk production).

    Scientific trials suggest that Fenugreek tea (three cups per day) may help to support breast milk production in new mothers [16]. The exact mechanism for this support is currently unknown, but the authors suggested that it might be associated with Fenugreek’s phytoestrogen or/and diosgenin content.

    Promotion of Healthy Testosterone Levels

    A study using rats suggested that the furostanols present in fenugreek might offer support for anabolic actions in males [17].

    There was a demonstrated support of healthy serum testosterone levels and testosterone bioavailability in resistance trained men given a 500 mg of fenugreek extract per day over an eight week period [18]. Although further studies using men did not report promotion of testosterone levels, they did note that levels of the testosterone metabolite DHT were affected [19].
