PURPOSE: Tribulus (Tribulus Terrestris) is a small, flowering plant that has been used for a long time in traditional Chinese medicine, as well as in ayurveda to treat a number of conditions, sexual dysfunctions, enhance athletic performance or increase libido.
The truth is there are various active ingredients in Tribulus Terrestris called saponins. Saponins contain only a handful of active ingredients. They also contain protodioscin and protogracillin together with other key active ingredients, protodioscin being the main active ingredient.
Many companies do not differentiate between saponins and protodioscin. The level of protodioscin can not go over 45%, but saponins can. In order to sell more of their products, a lot of companies write false claims of 80%-90% protodioscin. But what they advertise is the percentage of saponins. That is why many tribulus products have been taken off the world market since 2011, due to these false indicators. Be careful while choosing the best product for your health!

Enhances Sexual Function
Tribulus Terrestris has been used in traditional medicine to support hormonal and sexual function. It is known to treat sexual dysfunctions, such as impotence and low libido. Taken by women with diminished libido, it might increase testosterone levels and lead to a significant improvement in factors such as desire and satisfaction.
The active component of Tribulus — protodioscin, has a chemical structure similar to that of dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA), a hormone involved in testosterone and estrogen production in humans. It reduces the muscle recovery time and enhances protein synthesis. It also promotes positive nitrogen balance. The combination of these actions all help to strengthen and increase muscle mass.
Improves Sperm Motility
Studies show that the incubation of human semen with 40 and 50 μg/mL of Tribulus terrestris extract significantly enhances total sperm motility and the number of progressive motile spermatozoa. Tribuluis is proved to be effective in restoring sperm functions like motility and acrosome reactions, or when the red receptors on the sperm come in contact with the egg jelly yellow.
