The standardised fenugreek extract is Gencor's top-selling ingredient to increase women's sexual desire

Gencor said the company has received four approved Canadian health claims from Health Canada on its standardised fenugreek extract, Libifem.

These health claims are based on scientific and clinical data supporting each benefit. Products in Canada can now claim the following:

  • Helps to increase women's sexual desire
  • Helps support women's healthy sex drive and libido
  • Helps promote women's sexual arousal
  • May help reduce menopausal symptoms such as hot flashes and night sweats

"Receiving all four health claims further validates our research on Libifem and its ability to help reduce menopausal symptoms and promote healthy sexual activity," said Chase Shryoc, Gencor's VP of Sales and Business Development.

Shryoc said Libifem is proving to be a well-rounded ingredient for women. "We are currently conducting clinical trials to see its potential benefits for women in sports nutrition applications."

Libifem has numerous clinical trials backing its efficacy and continues to be a top-selling ingredient for Gencor. Libifem has obtained GRAS status and is a standardized extract of fenugreek that contains Furostanol and Steroidal Saponins.
