Tribulus Terrestris for Athletes and Bodybuilders

Hearing the words “athlete” or “bodybuilder” one's imagination usually draws the picture of a strong man with huge muscles. At the same time, these two words are associated with much training, high-protein diet, and the use of steroids, which are not always so good as they may seem to be. Well, of course, steroids promote the growth of muscles and give more strength. But do you know how harmful they are? In fact, steroids use may lead to coronary heart disease and sexual dysfunction, as well as to liver problems, aggressive behavior, and sensitivity to injuries.

Is there any alternative to the anabolic steroids? The answer is positive. Thanks to herbal medicine, artificial steroids may be replaced with the natural remedy, called Tribulus Terrestris, which is said to be safe and effective at the same time. This is a unique and powerful plant, which has been used by people as an overall tonic and energizer since ancient times. Due to such features Tribulus Terrestris is gaining popularity among athletes and bodybuilders nowadays.

The herb is considered to be a strong testosterone stimulator that promotes muscles growing, increases their tone and gives energy and strength. Acting this way Tribulus Terrestris positively influences physical performance and helps to achieve better results without any harm to health.

How does it work? To understand the plant’s mechanism of action, let us analyze the processes that take place in the human organism during the intake of Tribulus Terrestris. First of all, the plant’s phytochemicals (dioscin, protodioscin, diosgenin) stimulate the production of testosterone, a powerful hormone, participating in muscles building. Besides, the increased testosterone production stimulates cells and tissues to absorb more protein from food. As a result, the whole organism works more effectively and processes sugars more quickly, converting them into energy, necessary for all body organs and especially for muscles during the physical training.

It should also be added that Tribulus Terrestris consumption normalizes and promotes positive nitrogen balance. The plant’s extract may help recover from the muscular stress. Finally, the use of Tribulus Terrestris is said to have no serious side effects and unwanted results.

Isn’t it too ideal to be true? It is known that every medal has two sides, and our medal called Tribulus Terrestris is not an exception from the rule. Some opponents of herbal treatment say that taking Tribulus Terrestris has no influence on muscle growth and sports performance. In fact, the results of some studies demonstrate that Tribulus Terrestris really increases the level of testosterone in blood; however, this increase is insufficient to have some serious influence on physical performance of a person or to promote significant gaining of the muscles weight.

After all, it is not the first time when a person should make his own decision on using or not using herbal remedies. All we can do is to show all the advantages and disadvantages, known for the time being, and establish that the discussion is still open and it is the official science, which should prove or deny the benefits of Tribulus Terrestris.

I just recently got back into the gym and I had heard about tribulus but was skeptical. I started lifting with no supplements for 3 weeks and after this I started taking Tribulus 3X/day. I noticed that I could lift more weight, do more reps and do more sets almost immediatley. I also noticed a little more irritability, and increase in appetite. Over 8 weeks using this my strength has increased significantly, I've gained 20lbs of muscle and I power through my workouts. I cycle on 3weeks off 1 week and this seems to work well
