Fenugreek seed (Trigonella foenum-graecum) is used for its beneficial effects on blood glucose. However, it is also traditionally used as a fertility enhancer. In this study, the authors aimed to examine the effects of FurosapTM, a new fenugreek seed extract standardized to 20% protodiosin, on testosterone levels and sperm profile. 50 men (35 to 65 years) have received 500 mg of the fenugreek extract for 12 weeks. All participants were diagnosed with symptomatic hypogonadism.

After 12 weeks, an increase in free testosterone levels has been measured in 90% of the participants. Mean free testosterone level has been increased from 8.17 ± 5.04 to 11.97 ± 5.65 pg/mL (p =0.0004). Moreover, sperm parameters have been improved by the supplementation, with increases in sperm count and sperm motility, and reduction in abnormal sperm morphology. Finally, reflex erection has been improved by the supplementation.


In conclusion, this study suggest that FurosapTM, a fenugreek seed extract, may improve sexuality and fertility in men with symptomatic hypogonadism. However, a well-designed controlled study is required to confirm these beneficial effects.
