Tribulus: The Natural Viagra of the Plant World
Buckle your seat belts... this is the herb that will blow your mind, change your hair color, give you muscle definition like a mountain of steroids and give you the sex drive of a 19 year old. At least that’s what my patients tell me day in and day out about Tribulus, the Bulgarian herb that has been the secret of Bulgarian weight lifters for years. But Tribulus terrestris isn’t just for men, it’s a favorite of women as well. In fact in menopausal women it can reduce the effects of estrogen withdrawal, increasing libido, reducing hot flashes and maintaining mood (when you’re not lighting candles to create a different kind of mood!). Tribulus leaf or Puncture vine has been a staple of Ayurvedic and Chinese medicine for years in the treatment of male and female infertility, low libido, impotence and low sperm count. An added benefit is the increase in lean muscle mass and stamina which is the reason weight lifters love it and men all over the world are throwing away their Viagra and buying Bulgarian Tribulus.
In clinical studies, men in their 40’s with very low sperm counts and poor motility were able to change their semen status within three months of taking standardized Tribulus leaf. This has been the natural secret to fertility for centuries and in today’s modern world has enabled couples to conceive healthy babies time and time again with no IVF intervention.
However, in order to achieve these effects, you must have an extract only from Bulgaria or Slovakia that is standardized to contain 100 mg of protodioscin. This compound is only found in the leaves and stem, not the fruit, nor is it found in Tribulus grown in any other part of the world. This is the trick that many suppliers use in providing Tribulus to retailers. Without these assurances, your purchase will be worthless!
So stock up on candles, massage oil and pay up your gym membership!
