Libifem® is a standardized fenugreek extract – fenugreek naturally contains over 100 phytochemical constituents, including Furostanol Saponins and Steroidal Saponins. Clinically proven to positively impact muscle strength in female athletes, support a healthy sexual desire and sexual arousal through increasing estradiol, and offers menopausal support, it offers a variety of support through multiple formats including powders, soft gels, capsules and tablets.
Libifem® was developed to support women through their lives to help mitigate the natural ageing process by offering menopausal relief, sexual health support, and muscle strength through gold standard, clinical research.
Loss of sexual desire affects one in every four women and can affect adult women of all ages. But despite its prevalence, there are few supplement options. Libifem® offers a unique herbal solution to support female hormone estradiol that helps boost sexual desire.
Reduction in estradiol is a normal feature of menopause, a natural biological process which can be accompanied by a range of symptoms. These symptoms can affect women to varying degrees, sometimes causing discomfort and distress. Libifem® has been shown effective in alleviating some of these symptoms and supporting a healthy quality of life.
Libifem®: Menopause Study
A 12-week double-blind, randomised, placebo-controlled study to assess the effect of Libifem® in reducing menopausal symptoms in 115 women (aged 40-65).
Primary outcome measure: Reduction in menopausal symptoms (MENQOL).
Secondary outcome measures: Serum sex hormone levels and other quality of life questionnaires – DISF and FSFI (sexual function), PSI (sleep function), and IPAC (physical exercise).
600mg Libifem® significantly:
Reduced menopausal symptoms (hot flashes and night sweats)
Improvement in vasomotor, psychosocial, physical and sexual symptoms domains
The average estradiol levels were similar in both the active group and placebo group after treatment.
This study demonstrated that Libifem® may reduce menopausal symptoms in healthy women.

Libifem®: Sexual Health Study
An 8-week double-blind, randomised, placebo-controlled study to evaluate the effect of Libifem® on sex hormones and sexual function in 80 healthy menstruating women (aged 20-49) who reported low sexual drive.
Sexual function was measured using the DISF-SR standard, which tests five domains of sexual function.
600mg Libifem® significantly:
Increased sexual desire and arousal
The results indicate that Libifem® may be auseful treatment for increasing sexual arousal and desire in women.

2023 Award Winner
In making the Innovation in Women’s Health award, the NutraIngredients USA judges said: “Libifem®’s two double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled studies that report extensive benefits really caught the judge’s attention. As one judge noted, “few products exist with evidence of benefiting women’s sexual health.” The wide-ranging benefits that show Libifem®’s ability to reduce symptoms of menopause and more (hot flushes, healthy sexual vitality, experience, desire, body composition) really stood out.”
