What is Tribulus?

With a Latin name meaning “spiky weapon,” Tribulus terrestris is an annual plant that grows across Europe, Asia, Africa, Australia and North America. The plant is also known as “puncture vine,” due to its sharp, thorny seeds that have been known to pop bicycle tires. An extract of its leaves, stems, fruits and flowers has long been used in traditional Chinese, Indian and Greek wellness practices to promote testosterone levels, increase libido, aid in infertility, revitalize physical performance and accelerate healing. In the 1990s, the herb was in the international spotlight after members of medal-winning Bulgarian Olympic teams attributed their success in part to tribulus supplementation.**

Scientific investigations show that tribulus contains a high concentration of steroidal saponins, a group of chemical compounds that are considered the herb’s active ingredients. When ingested, saponins mimic human hormones; this has led to the herb’s reputation for having a testosteronic, or testosterone-boosting, effect. Recent research shows that the herb increases production of certain steroidal hormones, including testosterone, estrogen and dehydroepiandrosterone or DHEA, a compound that's active in the production of the male and female sex hormones known as androgens and estrogens. Tribulus is also believed to drive levels of luteinizing hormone (LH) higher, which in turn stimulates sperm production. **

Today, tribulus is often used to help support muscle mass and athletic performance. The herb contains a rich mixture of phytochemicals, such as disogenin, dioscin and protodioscin, which are thought to stimulate muscle growth and promote endurance, stamina and vitality. With its influence on testosterone and physical performance, tribulus has become a popular sports nutrition supplement among athletes and bodybuilders.**

Studies support tribulus' traditional use to improve libido, increase fertility and ease the effects of menopause. In addition, research suggests that the herb has anti-bacterial and inflammation-modulating properties that support urinary tract health, immune system performance and skin health.**

Tribulus Supplements 

Tribulus supplements come in tablet or capsule form. Some supplements use the herb in creams and lotions for topical application.**
