(NaturalNews) A new study conducted by researchers from both Applied Science and Nutrition, an Australia-based scientific and consulting company, and the University of Queensland's medical school have found that the curry spice fenugreek livens up a lot more than just food. Based in their findings, men who consume fenugreek regularly can boost their sex drives by as much as 25 percent, which can eliminate the need to take dangerous pharmaceuticals.

For its study, the team assigned 60 healthy men between the ages of 25 and 52 to take fenugreek twice daily for six weeks. Researchers monitored the participants' libido levels during this time, and noted a 28 percent average rise by the end of the trial period. A placebo group, on the other hand, saw their libido levels drop over the course of six weeks.

Researchers believe the active substances in fenugreek responsible for the positive benefits are saponins, a type of bioactive metabolite compound that helps regulate hormone levels and boost testosterone levels.

"It probably works to increase testosterone or androgen levels, which decrease with age," said Dr. Raj Persad, a consultant neurologist, in response to the findings. "If it's proven to be safe, this is good news. Men with good sexual health live longer than those who [sic] without."

Besides boosting sex drive, fenugreek is also known to help treat diabetes, lower blood sugar and bad cholesterol levels, maintain healthy metabolism, prevent constipation, purify blood and detoxify the body, and increase breast milk production in lactating women (https://www.naturalnews.com/030628_medicine_c...). And a traditional Chinese medicinal tea composed of fennel, flax, and fenugreek, is known to help treat coughs and colds, mucus buildup, irritable bowel syndrome, and Chron's disease (https://www.naturalnews.com/030842_fenugreek_...).
