A each day dose of 500 mg – and this quantity fits in one particular capsule – of the new fenugreek extract Furosap increases the quantity of absolutely free testosterone in the blood of adult males. A sponsored human study published in the International Journal of Health-related Sciences has shown this to be the case.
The researchers studied the impact of Furosap, a new fenugreek extract marketed by the US corporation Cepham. The study was sponsored by Cepham, and 3 of the authors operate for the corporation also. A single of them is the managing director and a further is the scientific director at Cepham.
Furosap is currently obtainable. From time to time it is the single ingredient in supplements, but it is also located in mixture with all sorts of other components in all sorts of merchandise claiming to enhance testosterone levels in males, and as a result make them extra muscled, slimmer and fitter.
According to Cepham, Furosap is composed of at least twenty % dioscine and analogues of this compound.
The researchers gave 50 males a capsule containing 500 mg Furosap just after breakfast every single day for 12 weeks. There was no manage group. That is not how factors are supposed to be performed, but it is not uncommon in this sort of sponsored industrial study.
The men’s absolutely free testosterone concentration rose by 47 %, a statistically substantial impact. The total quantity of testosterone in the blood did not raise by a substantial quantity.
The figure above shows that the supplement improved the quantity and top quality of the men’s sperm. The supplement had no impact on the immune program, cholesterol, triglyceride levels or liver function.

Efficacy of FurosapTM, a novel Trigonella foenum-graecum seed extract, in Enhancing Testosterone Level and Enhancing Sperm Profile in Male Volunteers
Dietary fiber wealthy fenugreek (Trigonella foenum-graecum) seeds have exhibited cardioprotective, hypolipidemic and other well being rewards. Furosap (FS), an revolutionary, patented, 20% protodioscin-enriched extract was created in our laboratory from fenugreek seeds. This study examined the absolutely free and total testosterone levels, sperm profile and morphology, sexual well being, mood and mental alertness, and broad spectrum security parameters of FS in 50 male volunteers following supplementation more than a period of 12 weeks.
Institutional Overview Board (IRB) and other regulatory approvals had been obtained for our study. This one particular-arm, open-labelled, multi-center study was performed in 50 male volunteers (age: 35 to 65 years) more than a period of 12 weeks to establish the efficacy of FS (500 mg/day/topic) on absolutely free and total testosterone levels, sperm profile, sperm morphology, libido and sexual well being, mood and mental alertness, and broad spectrum security parameters.
Free of charge testosterone levels had been enhanced up to 46% in 90% of the study population. 85.four% of the study population showed improvements in sperm counts. Sperm morphology enhanced in 14.six% of volunteers. Majority of the subjects enrolled in the study demonstrated improvements in mental alertness and mood. In addition, cardiovascular well being and libido had been considerably enhanced. Substantial security parameters had been evaluated which integrated blood chemistry information. No substantial adjustments had been observed in serum lipid function, cholesterol, triglyceride, HDL and LDL levels, hemogram (CBC), hepatotoxicity and nephrotoxicity.
All round, the outcomes demonstrate that FS, enriched in 20% protodioscin, is secure and powerful in attenuating testosterone levels, healthier sperm profile, mental alertness, cardiovascular well being and all round efficiency in human subjects.
