Australian research has revealed that fenugreek boosts the male sex drive by around 25%.
The Centre for Integrative Clinical and Molecular Medicine (in Brisbane, Australia) gave a group of 60 men a fenugreek extract twice a day and their sexual arousal rose by 28%.
A control group were given placebo pills and their sex drive diminished.
The theory is that fenugreek stimulates male sex hormones.
Herbs and spices have long been credited with improving sexual performance but this is one of the few studies to confirm this.
The really great part about this news is that fenugreek is used as a spice in lots of curries. So you could enjoy a yummy beef vindaloo or potato curry and be satisfied in the bedroom as well as the dining room. Now that’s a win-win if we ever heard of one.
