Testofen Reviews - What Is It?
Author: Eric Lander
WARNING: DO NOT BUY Testofen Until You Read This Review!
Is it a Scam? Does It Really Work? Check Ingredients, Side Effects and More!
Testofen is a sexual male booster that is used to increase testosterone levels in the male body. As a result, the user is expected to experience better and faster muscle growth and improved sex drive. It is a very versatile product that is said to be beneficial for the overall health of the user in general. It is contains the same key ingredient used in such popular supplements as Synthroid and Alpha T1. This enhancement product was made and patented by Gencor Pacific Inc, a company based somewhere in the USA. But unfortunately, the official website does not provide enough information about the manufacturer of the product. The company sells its patented Testofen to other companies as an ingredient for their supplements. According to the site, the supplement has undergone a few clinical studies, but no evidence is provided. Only the results were described. Thus, Testofen is said to have a positive effect on the sexual life of men by improving sexual performance and causing dramatic muscle growth and strength. Whether these claims are truthful we still have to find out further.
With age, the testosterone levels in the male body go down. As a result, sexual desire suffers, while muscle mass and strength are negatively affected too. Testofen promises to minimize or even solve these problems due to its main ingredient - Fenugreek seed extract which has been traditionally used to increase sex drive and testosterone levels in men. What is really strange is that Fenugreek has been generally used in home-brewed wine, cooking food, tea and other dishes since ancient times. It was used by Romans to brew their wine, while it is still used for cooking in many countries. Fenugreek is also known for its ability to treat several health-related issues in both men and women. Can Testofen really increase Testosterone levels in men, improve muscle growth and boost sex drive? Let's try to answer these questions by taking a look at the ingredients in this product.
Ingredients of Testofen - Does It Really Work? Is It a Scam?
The major ingredient of Testofen is fenugreek whose general composition includes Trigonelline, 4-hydroxyisoleucine, Trigoneoside and Galactomannan. The supplement is derived from fenugreek seeds that are believed to boost testosterone levels. The main compounds of fenugreek are saponins which regulate blood sugar levels. The steroidal saponins slow down the absorption and production of glucose in the human body. Studies made on mammals have shown that taking Testofen has affected those people who suffered from type 2 diabetes, obesity, or some other health condition linked to imbalanced or excess production of glucose. However, there is no evidence behind these claims. At the same time, healthy people (without the higher mentioned health issues) didn't see any changes at all. Other compounds of Testofen include arcabose, fish oil, and slow blood clotting agents.
The product is claimed to be able to control glucose levels in type two diabetes patients. However, Testofen dosage that is lower than 5 to 50 grams didn't work. The benefits for type 1 diabetes patients include decreased sugar levels in urine were. This effect is provided by the saponins in fenugreek. These compounds contain antioxidant activity and are able to bind to bile salts. Testofen is also claimed to lower cholesterol levels, again due to the presence of saponins and dietary fibers. Saponins are believed to inhibit cholesterol synthesis and its absorption in the human body. But no effect on HDL cholesterol levels has been officially registered yet. According to webmd.com, there is insufficient evidence that fenugreek can be beneficial for exercise performance, high cholesterol levels, male infertility, weight loss, or sexual problems (erectile dysfunction). Testofen doses may vary depending on your needs. It is recommended to take 500 to 600 mg of the product per day in order to boost testosterone levels. But what are the side effects and precautions that you need to be aware of? Let's find out.
Customer Reviews - Does It Have Any Side Effects?
Even though the official website of the product claims that Testofen does not cause any severe negative side effects, their risk still exists, especially if the supplement is taken in high dosage. First, you may face indirect side effects. For instance, the increase in testosterone levels may potentially cause an imbalance in estrogen and other hormones within the male body. As a result, you may face the enlargement of breast tissue. Besides, men's sperm production may be decreased. Taking Testofen with medications that slow blood clotting may lead to bruises and bleeding. So, avoid taking such drugs as Warfarin, Aspirin, Ibuprofen, Clopidogrel, Naproxen, Enoxaparin, Dalteparin and Heparin. All of these drugs are used to slow blood clotting. Fenugreek extract may be linked to some side effects in users including gas, stomach upset, diarrhea, and bloating. There is a chance of lowering of blood sugar in people with diabetes. What real users are saying about their experience of using Testofen? As a matter of fact many customers report that the supplement does not increase any sexual desire or improve sexual performance. Let us take a look at some testimonials.
"Testofen is a waste of money! I decided to give this product a try after reading an article about it in a health magazine. I followed the recommendation but I was disappointed. I guess that article was paid by the Swanson lab. In fact, the only difference I saw while taking this product is that I put on weight. That's terrible!"
"I was looking for some new product for men online. This was when I saw information about Testofen and decided to try it. I received on Monday and started using it immediately, twice a day - one in the morning and one in the evening. After four days I received increasing headache with zero positive effects. I feel no friskier, so I cannot continue taking this supplement."
"I have been taking testofen for two days only and I understood that it was a wrong product for me. After the first dosage which I took in the evening I felt stomach ache but I ignored it thinking that it was not linked to the supplement. I took another dosage in the morning and as a result I developed serious diarrhea I could not stop. Never again will I take this product!"
Where To Buy Testofen?
You can find this male booster on the official website of the manufacturer or on some retail stores online. Sixty vegetarian capsules of the product are priced at $27.49 but you can buy it for just $22.11 by saving $5.38 (20%).
My Final Summary
The Testofen male supplement has a lot of disadvantages. While the product has got a lot of positive reviews, they seem to be paid for by the manufacturer. In reality, those people who have taken the supplement often did not experience any positive changes in their bodies. Some men even suffered from certain side effects. This product does not seem to be as natural as promised by the manufacturer. The most common side effects include diarrhea, bloating, gastrointestinal issues, and nasal congestion. Not enough information is provided on the official website about the product, its manufacturer or ingredients. Taking into account all pros and cons of Testofen I cannot recommend this product to usage.
Many doctors say that excellent results in reducing negative effects of andropause are demonstrated by the supplements, which regulate the levels of hormones such as estrogen, testosterone, DHEA and HGH in complex.
I agree with them. After studying many products I can say that there is a product that works that way - Provacyl, and it's really cool! Of course, I recommend you reading my review about Provacyl, you'll be pleasantly surprised!
