According to the study, taking a fenugreek-based preparation can increase libido in men by as much as 25 percent. Fenugreek is widely used in preparations of curries across Asia with India being the world's largest producer of the herb.

The researchers divided the participants, aged between 25 to 52 years, into two groups. The first received two doses of the extract every day for six weeks while the second group was placed on placebo.

The researchers found that the libido of the men from the first group increased by 25 percent while remaining at the same level in the second group. At the end of six weeks, the researchers found that sexual arousal increased from 16.1 to 20.6 in the first group compared to just 16.6 in the second group.
