SLIMALUMA is a proprietary standardized GRAS extract of Caralluma Fimbriata, an edible plant used for centuries in India as a famine food and appetite suppressant. Gencor has developed a unique patented process to extract the essential constituents of the whole herb without chemical alteration to any of the key constituents, ensuring that the full benefits of the herb are delivered in concentrated form.
TESTOFEN is a natural solution for promoting healthy free testosterone levels and healthy libido. Testofen is a proprietary extract of the seeds of Fenugreek, standardized for a unique matrix of saponins that Gencor has named Fenuside™. It is backed by an animal study and two human clinical studies showing that the product has aphrodisiac, anabolic and androgenic properties.
GENCINIA is a new ingredient for blood sugar management. It is an extract of Coccinia Cordifolia, which has traditionally been consumed for centuries as a vegetable in India. Many published studies have shown that an extract of Coccinia Cordifolia is effective in controlling blood sugar levels. A recent human clinical trial using Gencinia, published in the journal Diabetes Care, showed statistically significant reductions in fasting blood glucose levels, post-prandial blood glucose levels, and glycosylated hemoglobin levels.
GENOPAUSE is a herbal and totally non-estrogenic formula intended for a healthy menopausal experience. This innovative formulation, developed after years of research by physicians at the top Ayurvedic University in India, is clinically tested and proven.

Gencor’s executives Jith Veeravalli and R.V. Venkatesh saw the potential to apply their pharmaceutical approach to nutraceuticals and founded Gencor in 1999 in Hong Kong. The company was initially started as a pharmaceuticals distributor, and then in early 2000, Gencor began developing nutraceuticals for life stage management. It opened a U.S. office in 2002.
Gencor’s main objective was, and still is, to provide scientifically validated solutions based on herbs and standardized herbal extracts for lifestyle management areas: satiety, weight management, blood sugar management, blood lipids management, virility, post menopausal syndrome, and joint care.
Gencor worked to scientifically develop these solutions by validating the safety and efficacy of ingredients through in-vitro and in-vivo studies, human clinical trials, and safety and toxicity studies. Gencor has branded its nutraceutical ingredients and partners with primary and contract manufacturers to develop finished products.
Today, Gencor Nutrients has a successful portfolio of branded ingredients backed by science for life stage management and healthy aging.
Gencor cultivates its own herbs on company-managed farms. Gencor’s herbs are dried naturally to maintain their phytochemical content. All herbal extracts are single-herb extracts, free from contaminants and other constituents. Gencor utilizes GLP-certified labs to test all of its herbal extracts for microbial contamination and heavy metal content. Gencor’s scientifically based ingredients are built on peer reviewed clinical studies and double blind, controlled trials.
Gencor’s goal is to bring additional innovative and scientifically supported ingredients into the nutraceutical, cosmeceutical, and functional food and beverage categories. They are committed to maintaining high quality ingredients for life-stage solutions
