    Question Any legitatmite Fenugreek studies?


    Are there any studies, in which, mice are dosed at a proportional level as a human and a rise in prolactin levels are shown?
    Anyone dose Fenugreek at 600 mg per serving a few times a day and notice any gyno-like effects?
    Any Glycobol users with Gyno??

    Fenugreek is possibly estrogenic.

Testofen is in quite a few products on the market; of which...it draws upon some data. It is just an extract from Fenugreek however standardized to contain about 50% fenusides. This is important because you NEED a down-regulation of the number of the following saponins: diosgenin, yamogenin, gitogenin, tigogenin, and neotigogens; which are all previously purported to be sources of fenugreek's estrogenic properties (makes sense seeing they are phytoestrogens, but remember to take phytoestrogens and divide by the number 5 to get contribution to total estrogen cotent). The "positive" studies are essentially from 1 group of researchers (i.e. - non-replicated).

    I am probably more interested in fenugreek's potential to modulate blood sugar (probably secondary to the glucomannan)...In any event...if you could get a Fenugreek molecule standardized for glucomannan and fenuside; that would likely be the best, but I am usnure such a compound is available. What they need to do is make certain low phyto-E in the extract finally used.

    I know women who are breast feeding their kids take fenugreek to help increase the milk production.

    I have used it for years with bloods and have never had elevated PRL levels, nor E2 for that matter (Testofen). I do get ravenously hungry, better pumps, retain weight from cycles, and have an increase in libido.

    Hypothetically speaking, if you had a bottle of Fenugreek (not Testofen), would you consider supplementing it. Why or why not?

    I wouldn't have purchased the bottle before I knew exactly what it was and how it would affect me. I'd research about it before​ I purchased it.
