Although long-established in Traditional Chinese and Ayurvedic (Indian) medicine to help support healthy libido and sexual function in both men and women, modern research also supports the use of Tribulus Terrestris for improving sexual activity, the extract from this wild growing ‘puncture vine’, supports erection and helps sexual arousal.
People have taken Tribulus Terrestris for many years to enhance sexual and athletic performance. Whether your desire is to return your sex life to the levels you experienced in your younger years, or build a stronger, more masculine body, Tribulus Terrestris can help:
It is recognized that Tribulus Terrestris can increase the amount of Luteinizing Hormone (LH) produced by the body's pituitary gland. LH stimulates the testes to secrete the male hormone testosterone, which gives men mastery in sexual performance, and is vital for libido, muscle growth and generating male energy confidence and stamina.
Studies in Bulgaria in the 1980s revealed men who had been unable to achieve an erection, or suffered from low libido, showed a significant improvement after taking Tribulus Terrestris extract. A follow-up study on healthy men aged 28 to 45 showed a more than 30% increase in testosterone after five days of taking a 250mg capsule of Tribulus Terrestris three times a day.
While Tribulus Terrestris supports and assists the body's natural production of testosterone it should be clearly understood that it is not a hormone supplement. By promoting the production of the body's own hormones, it works only within the body's natural limits to help men achieve their strength and muscular potential.
Tribulus Terrestris will not cause the body to indefinitely produce increasing amounts of testosterone – rather, it balances natural hormone levels.
The Bulgarian research also showed Tribulus Terrestris extract could significantly improve the quantity and quality of sperm. It should be noted that sperm needs 80 days to reach maturity, so researchers recommend that men hoping for improved sperm quality take Tribulus Terrestris for at least this length of time to achieve maximum efficacy.
As a sports supplement, Tribulus Terrestris is not a ‘quick fix’. It may only help to improve strength when taken in conjunction with an exercise program that places muscles under strain and then allows them to recover.
Other Benefits of Tribulus Terrestris
Other research evidence also suggests Tribulus Terrestris may be useful in lowering cholesterol through its action on the liver. In addition one researcher described it as “one of the ideal medicines to treat angina pectoris”. Angina pectoris is the medical term for chest pain or discomfort due to coronary heart disease. Chinese research on 406 cases of angina showed an 82% improvement, where Tribulus Terrestris had the beneficial effect of dilating the coronary artery system.
Taking Tribulus Terrestris as a supplement for a finite time is safe, provided that you're healthy and you are not pregnant or breastfeeding. Side effects can include stomach upset, but this can usually be controlled by taking the herb with food.
