A new human clinical study was recently completed in Australia on Testofen, Gencor's proprietary extract of fenugreek, to evaluate its effect on libido in healthy men. The randomized, double blind placebo study tested sexual function, performance, and libido levels in 60 healthy males aged between 21 and 50 years over a 6 week period. Results showed Testofen produced a significant positive change in all parameters of libido, including sexual cognition, sexual arousal, sexual experience and orgasm. The effect may be a result of interaction with testosterone via alpha-5 reductase activity.
A presentation of this study will be made at SupplySide West in a VendorWorks seminar on November 13, 2009, at 2:30 p.m., by Ms. Amanda Rao, Director of Applied Science and Nutrition Pty. Ltd., the CRO that conducted the study. Ms. Rao has degree and postgraduate qualifications in science and over 15 years experience in the natural medicine industry in Australia, including product development, regulatory affairs, manufacture and education."
