Does Tribulus even do anything?

  1. Does Tribulus even do anything?


    "Tribulus is a natural LH (leutenizing hormone) pro-hormone which eventually increases testosterone."

    I've seen plenty of posts saying Trib is junk and doesn't actually do anything. Likewise I've seen people report positive effects with Trib (though it might be placebo?).

    Anyone here can actually claim Trib works for them (+libido) and isn't placebo?


  2. Yes, and there are literally hundreds of threads about this topic already.

    Those who report that it is junk, mostly consumed junk or had expectations that were too high.

    Quality control and excellent raw materials are absolutely necessary for a natural herb to work. This is much more important than for a synthetically produced Amino acid. That is why some products don't do anything at a higher standardization while others work pretty well. You might be surprised how many companies only buy stuff from China without testing it and putting them in caps to sell. Might work, might not work.

    For Tribulus, use Bulgarian tribulus. Sopharmas Tribestan (pharma quality), Vemoherb (very good labtests) are for instance solid choices. And do not expect too much. Slight recovery improvements, strength improvements, a little bit more pumped and better libido is what you get. Some more, some less

  3. Browse around the supplement/supplement logs section and you should be able to find a lot of info on people using tribulus.

  4. Totally agree. The words test booster are what confuse a lot of people. There will actually be people new to building muscle that read that and think "excellent I don't need to inject test cos I can just take tribulus" and that's where most theories on it being ineffective come from.

  5. Get blood work to see if works for you. Obviously libido would be a personal feeling. For me I ran it for 4 weeks just to see what it would do. Bloodwork came back just about the exact same as 4 weeks before using it. No effects for me.

    Did it improve your libido though?

  7. Yes I did notice an increase personally.

  8. Quality extract has been shown to increase test levels in men 30%. Some say tribulus alatus is better for performance enhancement.

  9. At high doses I have heard that it helps with libido.

    Funny you mentioned this cause THIS is the brand that I was planning on picking up in the
    future and I will be going with the caps. I've used other products from Nutrabio and their
    stuff is QUALITY! Their protein flavoring could be a little stronger so that could use a little
    work but the ingredient profiles and quality are on the $.

  14. I avoid opening a new discussion (otherwise they reproach me ...), I have a question, should the Tribulus be taken on an empty stomach, or on a full stomach?
    Some houses recommend on an empty stomach, others after a meal. Where is the truth?
    Thanks to those who answer me.

    Good question cause products that have Trib and other herbals in the mix are usually recommended
    20-30 min before a meal which is how I've always dosed herbals that I've used but straight Trib products
    I've used in the past have had both recommendations either before a meal or after so I'm also curious
    which way others feel would be more effective.

    Same results I've gotten and also a bit deeper sleep when using Trib.

    what brand do you use.

  21. I've used soooo many over the years. I just started using BRI Nutrition (merica made! GMP) and I'm liking it alot. I used Sopharma years back in college which is touted as the best but for the cost I dont think its worth it.

  22. I just ordered some Tribulyze, we shall see how it goes. SAN Endotest used good trib, and was a great product back in the day....

  23. SAN is a great company!!!
