Wow that hurts.........But it's not going to help with your lack of knowledge of basic beginner supplements. You feel like getting banned today there tuff guy?
Guys, allowing this to escalate can only result in some type of Pyrrhic victory for one of you. Or worse. Not really worth it!
Tribulus is hit or miss. Although it contains a lot of steroidal saponins, including the testosterone/DHEA precursor, diosgenin, it does not seem to work for everyone. A decent extract of Indian or Bulgarian tribulus with 80% Protodioscin and 20% Diocin can stimulate the endocrine to produce luteinizing hormone, ultimately leading to higher testosterone production and spermatogenesis. That is the ideal case. But because the steroidal saponins require a healthy intestinal flora to be adequately activated, tribulus may fail to produce the desired result in many users. In general, though, it is usually a better option to use a matrix of natural testosterone boosters than depend on just one, especially if that one is tribulus.

I second the motion of hate4theweak and move to have your "yo momma" comment stricken from the record.
T. terrestris has consistently failed to increase testosterone levels in controlled studies. It has also failed to demonstrate strength-enhancing properties.

1. it says you don't care to answer the poster's question.
2. it says that you think the poster is dumb for asking said question, and maybe even lazy. this may be to the contrary, as the poster may have done EXTENSIVE research and found conflicting opinions.
3. it says you don't respect the poster.
I personally think that this "got search?" emoticon should be removed. it in itself is offensive. i've NEVER seen a good response from one of these emoticons. it's just rude/inflammatory. if you DON'T wanna help the poster, exit the thread, simple as that.
I normally don't involve myself in this kind of banter, but with you I felt compelled to make an exception. AM is the only forum I post in. It's in my opinion the best place to seek information without a lot of superfluous talk or meaningless drama. If you prefer a World Wrestling Federation environment, let me suggest bb.com. It's a great place for self-loathing youngsters who need to use the net as a form of therapy. I certainly hope that AM doesn't seek to those depths. It would be a shame.
