Fenugreek may improve sexual function in men
India and North Africa have traditionally used fenugreek to treat sexual dysfunction in men. Fenugreek may improve sexual function in part by increasing testosterone levels, which decline with age. In this study, 120 healthy men, age 43 to 70, took a placebo or 600 mg of fenugreek seed extract per day. After 12 weeks, compared to placebo, men in the fenugreek group had higher levels of serum and free testosterone. Men taking fenugreek also reported more morning erections and more frequent sexual activity compared to the start of the study. Discussing the findings, doctors said this is the first published study of fenugreek seed extract and male hormone deficiency, and that fenugreek may help improve sexual function in aging men.
