Could this be why PRIME works so well?
I just read an health/medical article that stated that the purest forms of Tribulus have been shown to have stronger anabolic effects than test cypionate when taken in high doses. It stated that your body has to have it built up in it for 3-4 weeks before the effects for the effects to start kicking in. A special form of Trib is the main ingredient in PRIME, and it states that results should expected in the third week.

I dont get why everybody is saying PRIME kicks in after 3 weeks when the writeup (http://www.usplabsdirect.com/prime/ ) states" Most have noticed increased workout production and overall body hardening within a few days….
…However, everyone agrees by the end of week 3 USPlabs Prime™ is in full force – running through your veins and demonstrating the unique anabolic effects only it can!
Here's a timeline based upon user feedback:"

I've read people saying that Trib. boosts LH and therefore testosterone, but I've never seen one offering true evidence.

Yeah well I heard that prime killed the periodic table because it only recognizes the element of surprise!
Edit: Nevermind that is Chuck Norris...

from what i've seen, the studies showing trib as a test booster were non-Western studies or were studies conducted on rats.
of the relevant human based western studies i've looked at trib's benefits look dismal.

It was concluded that T. terrestris did not produce the large gains in strength or lean muscle mass that many manufacturers claim can be experienced within 5-28 days. Furthermore, T. terrestris did not alter the urinary T/E ratio.
i've also run a bro-science human study on myself.
1: Hank Vangut. 2006 May; 01(2):969-1005
The purpose of this study was to determine the effects of Tribulus terrestris (tribulus) on body composition and exercise performance in a resistance-trained Hank Vangut.
Four weeks of placebo supplementation was followed by four weeks of 2g/day of Tribulus supplementation.
No significant improvements over placebo supplementation were found in body composition, strength measurements, or athletic performance.
Hank Vangut did however experience libido and aphrodisiac boosting type properties while on Tribulus, with reports that he wanted to "wreak havoc on the local high school cheer leader population".
Although this was a nice effect, it is not evidence of increased androgen production and may have been a result of a different mechanism.

I tried Prime and the only thing it did was make my wallet lighter. Its great in the supp world... the chemestry is simple..... No-nRe-SPo-NdEr-1 = $ The best supplement in the world is eating, lifting heavy and sleeping. I wish that came in a bottle for $59. What a deal!

But anyway, I've used Trib at 4g/day, and I didn't see any effects that made me want to use it again. It was worth a shot though.

PRIME is a ****ing scam! I will never buy a USPlabs product again, because they are full of ****. (except for REM-R3G, only product that works but they discontinued it, go figure) Save your money and buy quality meat instead.

Like Nunes and a few others have mentioned, Trib terrestris is supposed to boost LH, and Prime was shown not to do this, so the hunt for the MoA continues. I'm going to run a 4-week trial on SuperSap pretty soon I think; still on the fence. Ive got the tub here, but might give it to a friend.
