CAUTIONS: One area of concern is that the company web site admits that testofen increases prolactin levels.  Prolactin is known for fighting testosterone and the effects of dopamine, both of which could be bad for erections. This is verified by the fact that women are sometimes advised to take large amounts of fenugreek while breastfeeding: prolactin is the "nursing hormone."
Another area of concern is that some animal studies show significantly decreased fertility resulting from Fenugreek consumption. 
4. Growth Hormone. One study on rat cells showed increases in growth hormone output from an extract of fenugreek seeds.  If it really works that way, then maybe we can get a little boost in this "fat burning" hormone. Hopefully, we'll get a study on humans sometime soon.
5. Muscle. Fenugreek is likely anabolic. Researchers found in a study on (castrated) rats that it did not raise testosterone but was anabolic, i.e. muscle-building.  Again, hopefully, we'll get a study on humans sometime soon.
6. Weight Loss. Several animal studies show, particularly in those with insulin resistance and/or diabetic-related issues, that fenugreek can help drop the pounds.  If you have insulin and glucose issues, it is very hard to shed the pounds or even maintain your weight. Fenugreek appears to be a significant help in this category.
7. Inflammation. Inflammation, as you kow, is the root of all evil and will hammer your arteries and endothelium. Fenugreek has a historical reputation as being anti-inflammatory and a number of studies have verified this.  One interesting study found that a blend of fenugreek, cinnamon and curcumin actually helped with post-recovery workout inflammation for example. 
8. Triglycerides. Trouble with elevated triglyceride levels? Well, you're not alone and fenugreek can help. A couple of studies show that it lowers levels in the liver.
