is not a "hoax" as far as libido is concerned...it can increase it substantially in the short term. It is a giant hoax as far as being a "muscle builder".
I know the tribulus thing has made many skeptical but something I always enjoyed vitrex and nixon stacked together it's made by nutrex. All smiles.Originally Posted by dsbhaver
From things I've tried so far the following are my favorites:
Maca 3-5g per day
Not a fan of Trib, horny goat weed and Ginseng
Tribulus is one of the greatest supplement hoaxes of all time. Time and time again tribulus has failed to boost test not only in the hands of the consumer but also in the labs. Tribulus is as much of a testosterone booster as is the big fat red man coming down the chimney once a year. It's a shamOriginally Posted by bioman
It doesn't boost test, hints it doesn't boost libidoOriginally Posted by Lacrossedude6
Oh well, if we're dealing in hints, then...
I did not imply that it boosts test and test is not the only hormone involved in libido.
I didn't realize you were an endocrinologist, the bottom line is the only affect one may get from tribulus is the placebo.Originally Posted by bioman
is libido normally an issue while BB? (for guys)

Well if you say so True, I'm not an endocrinologist, just a lowly biologist. The two are totally different, I mean I just study living systems, biochemistry etc...oh wait, endo's do that too. They just happen to focus on hormones although most of them are forced to deal with diabetic train wrecks these days.
Numerous studies have been published demonstrating the libido enhancing effects of Tribulus terrestris. Just because it was hyped as a muscle builder in the 80's and 90's and was bought into by individuals like yourself, doesn't mean that the herb itself has absolutely no value. Saponins exert a LH pulse-like effect and also have been shown to increase intracavernous pressure (ICP) in animal studies...both of which are intimately tied to libido. Viagra also increases ICP sans any change hormonal profiles..but I think I've heard of it being used as a libido booster. Probably just a rumor.
This board prides itself in learning and teaching. I invite you to take part in that process instead of hurling insults and trying to throw your imaginary weight around. Your word is neither law, nor final.
Thank you both for your generalizations and bro science. Once you present any study that shows Tribulus actually stimulating the LH in men lets talk. Every scientific Journal and study that has undergone to observe the hormonal effect tribulus has in men has concluded that it has no effect . Until then keep buying your placebos and herbs.Originally Posted by saggy321
