Herbs > Trbulus Terrestris

Tribulus terrestris is a flowering plant in the family Zygophyllaceae, native to warm temperate and tropical regions of the Old World in southern Europe, southern Asia, throughout Africa, and in northern Australia. It can thrive even in desert climates and poor soil.

Tribulus is extracted from the plant, and used as a natural nutritional supplement. It has been used for centuries by the Chinese to calm the liver, treat headaches, dizziness, and premature ejaculation, help impotence, low libido, male infertility, enhance energy and vitality

In bodybuilding, Tribulus is used for its testosterone boosting properties more than anything else. Studies have shown over 50% increase in testosterone levels when taking Tribulus Terresteris. We all know testosterone helps build muscle and strength, that's why some pro athletes use steroids and other pro-hormones to enhance performance. You'll be happy to hear that Tribulus Terrestris is NOT a hormone! It works completely different from Andro and DHEA. Tribulus increases testosterone through increasing lutenizing hormone (LH) in your body. LH tells your body to produce testosterone. Why is this beneficial? Simply because Tribulus is not a hormone supplement, it merely works within the body's natural limits helping you achieve muscle and strength.

There has been a great deal of tribulus research and studies have been conducted, and all have shown positive benefits of supplementing Tribulus Terrestris without adverse effects.

Tribulus is a key ingredient in Vig-Rx Plus and Tribulus.ext penis enhancement pills.
