Testofen Side Effects

Should You Be Worried?

In the rush to find the latest muscle building supplements, it’s easy for side effects to be overshadowed in favor of benefits. While research supports Testofen, a fenugreek brand, as an effective testosterone booster, what do we really know about its side effects?

When researching any supplement, you should always read as much about the side effects as the benefits. This way, you can decide if the benefits outweigh the side effects.

Testofen’s Safety

Certain herbs such as fenugreek have different side effects depending on dosage and duration of use. To gain insight into Testofen’s safety and potential risks, researchers examined Testofen’s effects on male libido.

In this study, 60 healthy males between the ages of 25 and 52 were gathered for a double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled trial. Participants were given either a placebo or 600 mg Testofen divided into two doses for 6 weeks.

According to the study, no adverse events were recorded during the clinical trial, and the product was well tolerated. Three participants, however, reported slight stomach discomfort when taking it without food.[1]

Testofen Side Effects

While Testofen was determined safe in this study, some experts found fenugreek caused gastrointestinal issues, diarrhea, bloating, and nasal congestion when taken in amounts larger than normally found in food.

Additional side effects include coughing, wheezing, facial swelling, and allergic reactions in hypersensitive individuals.[2]

Some believe fenugreek lowers blood sugar as well, so those with diabetes need to monitor blood sugar levels carefully.[2]

Side Effects of Increased Testosterone Levels

While Testofen itself might not have many side effects, it indirectly causes several side effects by increasing testosterone production. For example, elevated testosterone levels exacerbate male pattern baldness, also called androgenic alopecia.[3]

Increasing testosterone levels beyond their normal range also causes an imbalance in estrogen and other hormones, leading to gynecomastia, an enlargement of breast tissue.[4]

Additionally, sperm production is often decreased when men increase testosterone levels.

In both men and women, increasing testosterone levels often results in an increase of facial and body hair, voice deepening, and causes women to develop masculine characteristics.[5]

Too much testosterone is also linked to behavioral changes in men and women. This includes radical shifts in attitude, mood, and behavior. This is often accompanied with irritability, depression, and increased aggression.[6]

Purported Testofen Side Effects

Anecdotal side effects from Testofen users on forums include a change in prolactin levels.[7] Prolactin is a hormone produced by the pituitary gland, and can lead to several complications when elevated. For men this includes impotence, reduced libido, and infertility.[8]

Should You Use Testofen?

Testofen is considered safe and is an effective testosterone boosting supplement. Naturally increasing testosterone with Testofen boosts sex drive, energy, and vitality. If you are allergic to fenugreek or experience any symptoms or side effects, however, discontinue using Testofen and speak with a doctor.

    T-booster confusion.

    Hello, I’m a 40 yr old male who has been researching t-boosters for the last month or so. Unfortunately the more I search the more I get lost. I’m looking for a booster to help me get my mojo back like it was. Also to help build and keep muscle gain is secondary to my search. The reason why I’m lost is because of side effects. Baldness,painful testicles,low blood pressure,acne,man tits (LOL),oily skin. Etc.. is there really something out there that can REALLY help with minimum side effects or do they just add more ingredients to so call “block” these effects which sounds to me like liver damage. I’m just being a b
    it paranoid please any honest advice will be greatly appreciated

      Dear Joey

      I posted my answer below on Peggys post, but i have copied it here so you get the notification.

      Joey: with increased testosterone comes the side effects you describe. That is not the individual products that produce the side effects, but the increased testosterone itself. If you want to heighten your testosterone significantly, these side effects are inevitable. You might want to look at estrogen blockers such as nolvadex if you want to minimalize side effects associated with heightened testosterone. Remember to always consult your doctor, and if you’re worried you can always take liver/testosterone tests throghout the usage of these enhancement products. And remember that the liver is the most self repairing organ in the body, and it can be damaged 80% (ish) percent and still grow back to normal.

      Flex Stack / Testofen

      Joey,

      I have been using FlexStack for over a year and I noticed changes within 30 days. Nothing earth-shattering (you have to use real steroids for that and they have documented side effects). Physically I noticed a reduction in the amount of “belly fat” I was carrying (which wasn’t a whole lot to begin with) and I was stronger in the gym and my recovery time from workouts seemed to be less. Admittedly the strength gains and recovery time reduction could have been “placebo effect”, but you can’t fake a reduction in belly fat. I purposely did not alter my workout routines or my food intake as part of my evaluation of Flex Stack. I have noticed no ill effects (hair loss, gynecomastia, etc) and I have taken it continuously without any “off” cycles. I suspect any real benefit is provided by the Testofen, so more than likely any product that contains 600mg of Testofen will provide some positive result?

      Testosterone From 317 to 635!

      I am 42 years old and started to feel my age. After 3 years of experimenting and researching I have achieved a very healthy t-level (635) for a man my age. I rotate Testofen (600mg per day for 1 month) and Tongkat Ali (Andro 400, 300mg day for 1 month). The rotation allows me to not over use or “abuse” the products and has other benefits as I do not become immune to them or develop long term side effects. I also have 1 raw egg in a protein shake once per day. But the biggest difference in my Sports and Sex Life came when I start “Intermittent Fasting” and doing “Sprint 8’s”. These activities help restore Growth Hormone naturally (with no side effects) and this is as important if not more important than Testosterone.

      Safe supplement

      Hey Joey, I am 44 and use a product called TribX90 by Allmax Nutrition. I have used it for 2 year 3 years now, I have had absolutely no side affects. Hair is still in my head, no stomach issues.. and yes the sex drive and work out energy is there. My rule of thumb is, if the bottle tells you to take 2 capsules a day, then take 1. Companies always up the does for increased sales as I am sure you are aware of. Good luck.

    my husband wants a divorce

    My husband has been taking Testofen for over 3 months in the last month he has been taking 2 pills a day. He has lost over 15pounds in the last two months, He also has asked me for a divorce. As I realize our life isn’t perfect. I have also said to him this past month, “have you lost your mind” just today I realized that this enhancement might have changed his mind some. Is this possible?

      Peggy: unfortunately with heightened testosterone comes an unnatrual confidence wich brings stupid choices. It is clearly that your husbands mindr have changed due to either training and his new lifestyle, or this enhancement product. With the amounts of confidence gained from such big changes, he probably thinks hes too good for you. Have you tried to do some changes in your life yourself? I think it would be great for your relationship if you could train together and enjoy eachoters success. Nothing is more turn off in a relationship than lazyness. Especially if your husband is as dedicated as you describe.

      L-Tyrosine for moody side effects of T-Boosting

      Boosting T-Levels and playing with any Hormones can change a persons behaviors. It is important to boost t-levels naturally. 3 products that help boost t-levels but also enhance mood (they are actually anti-depressants) are Spirulina, Raw Eggs, and Mucuna pruriens. What do they have in common? L-tyrosine. Look it up for your self!!! I do not take Mucuna pruriens as it is a bit costly. But I have learned to love Spirulina and consume 1 Raw Egg a day.

      Why has he lost his mind?

      So, you believe that your husband has to have “lost his mind” for him to conclude that he should get in better shape and exit your “life isn’t perfect” marriage? I wonder, does it ever occur to you that he might not be happy with you? That he’s decided he wants more out of himself and life? That his changes aren’t about you or your marriage at all? It’s funny how we celebrate women “finding themselves” – ‘Eating, praying and loving’ and all that, but if a man does it, he’s lost his mind.

      Here’s a suggestion. Why don’t you lose 15 lbs too?

      A fair observation, though misguided.

      Then add the equally ignorant and pathetic demonstration of your own narcissism with a slam on this lady. On a subject you couldn’t possibly know about her. Your words only show what YOU are, and I’ll leave the adjectives and titles for the other readers to add.

    Testofen

    Greetings,
    I have been researching a particular problem for the last 7 years and I have perused a lot of material as you can imagine. Testosterone boosters or replacement therapy is not necessarily the answerer for some men. Some of us have low free testosterone because of shbg going wild in the body. Free test is what we use and out of the total amount of test shbg bines up 98% so if we have a problem with shbg we have not very much left.
    Testofen does not raise total testosterone, it raises free testosterone.
    Testofen will not raise your testosterone guys. Free up what is bound.
    I just got my first supply of it so I am hopeful that it will do what it sais it will do,

    Testofen Side effects

    I have a small prostate cancer that is dormant for several years. I take fenugreek daily (in sprouts that I do myself)) and I believe that one of the reasons for the cancer to remain inactive is the use of fenugreek, actually over 4 years the size and aggressivity of the cancer has reduced.

    Now I find Testofen. Do you think that taking this substance can have an impact, positive or negative on the prostate cancer?

    Thanks for your attention

      Testofen Side Effects

      It may be too late a reply for your situation as you’ve either gotten your answer or you’ve experimented with it already. I’ve found that it definitely works but it’s nothing to mess with. Hormones out of wack can change EVERYTHING. From how we feel physically and mentally to the way we act. It was kind of frightening for me at first as I’m a very mild person but I became somewhat angry very easily and I simply couldn’t help it. You know how they say they can feel anger coursing through your veins ? Well it’s exactly like that. Unless you feel pretty stable in the mind , are prepared to make changes in diet and perhaps routine. As well as having a doctor on board after some blood work then I’d say maybe. The truth is this doesn’t exactly raise testosterone as one poster said above. It increases the free testosterone we already have in our body , putting it to use. Making it easier to exercise and have sex. There are drawbacks though. Lowered sperm count. Possible enlargement of your pecs (breasts) as testosterone is changed into estrogen somehow …. I’m currently doing research after the fact having been on Test X180 for about 2 weeks. I feel like I’m navigating as a different person and it’s not necessarily a good thing. I rarely exercise, and I am the prudest man you’ll ever meet. Anyway — if this helps, great. I suggest not asking us though but to read up on medical facts that you can find anywhere online. Good luck.

    No Prostate

    If I take Testofen, at the recommended level, will it have any side effects? I also had my prostate removed because of cancer and wonder if it will have a positive effect upon my sexual activities? I am 66 years old and in good shape.

    What should I do?

    I’m 16 and I play varsity football as an O-lineman. I went to GNC and saw a new protein called whey protein extreme-power. The lady told me it would make me big and a lot stronger naturally but I’m wondering about the side effects of testofen which I saw in the ingredients in the back. She told me it wouldn’t effect anything but I’m suspicious. Should I get the product, and will it effect me negatively(increased estrogen levels etc).

      Yo Aaron,
      The lady at GNC is there to stock things and sell things she may or may not know much about.
      Your Coach should be very interested in safe growth trends in athletes your age.
      Ask them, and please, please don’t let yourself get sucked in to trying stuff around the locker room. Your friend will tell you “maybe don’t try something”.

    Estrogen blockers

    The answer to Joey Gonzales by “Doctor”-I found this answer quite insufficient for the man to understand the function of Estrogen blockers. It is missing the explanation of the mechanism.
    To everyone who is interested in increasing Testosterone: while it is possible to increase Testosterone by several different means, you need to keep in mind that the body has sensors to feel the level of Testosterone and also it has a routine to keep a balance between Testosterone and Estrogen. Thus….increasing Testosterone will inevitably increase the Estrogen, too…to the level, which is ‘right” for your body…as far as the balance between T and E is concerned. If you leave it at that, nothing will happen, besides the fact, that the body senses a lot of T and therefore shuts down you testicles(and they will start to dry up and shrink…and if you continue, they will go down to the size of raisins…) and you will feel the side effects of too much Estrogen.
    But if you want the extra T in your blood for libido and performance(that is free Teststerone), you need to use Estrogen blockers(as Navaldex, Arimidex et.). These blockers will destroy the Estrogen and only free T is left in your blood(to a certain point only-there will be always some Estrogen). Only now you will feel the sought results as far as muscle gains and libido.
    On the other hand – if you abuse the E blockers, you can diminish your Estrogen down to the point, where it will appear that you are drying out – wrinkles will set in and you will look aged….
    To properly compensate for increased T by T boosters (and thus shrinking your testicles), you need to cycle the Clomiphene Citrate (Also called Clomid -an ovulation drug for women) with E-blockers. Clomid will stimulate your own testicles back to normal function, while increasing E and thus also T (therefore need for E-blockers too). But after while, the body doesn’t respond to it(2-3 moths?) and you will need to get off of it and on external T-Booster again.
    So the best advice is find good Endocronologist and let him guide you…..

    any effect on women?

    I have been told to get my hormones adjusted by men and women, but the blood levels are normal. What would happen if I took testofen fenogreek?
