    Question Tribulus terrestris


    Is it worth taking? Especially if I take alone . . . with no other supplements.

    Nah, only if you take Fuzu and only for libido increases.

    I have heard a number of people praise Fuzu for its ability to increasing libido. I tried it at about double the normal dosage and it didn't do squat. Picking up a Playboy about 5 mintues prior worked much better

    I just read up on Fuzu it also recommends to combine it with Syntrabol

    Is this any good?

    I was also considering VPX 1-TEST . . . any thoughts on this?

    thanks

    NO Vpx 1-Test.

    What are you wanting to use the Fuzu for? If its for gains then it is a WASTE of $$.

    Oddly enough, Fuzu turns me into a pimple factory (that's kind of strange considering I'm almost 37 years old). I don't think it increases testosterone significantly since I've never seen any gains in strength or size while taking it. The ****ing smell that comes out of my pores while on it is unbearable (like maple syrup) and lasts for about 4 days after discontinuing usage. Good libido enhancer post-cycle if you and your wife/girlfriend can stand the smell.

    Is there any theory on the mechanism by which it enhances libido? I mean, if Test increases are discounted I wonder HOW it works?

    I can explain the libido increase (brace yourself, this is an internet first). It actually does increase testoterone, just not significantly enough to cause muscular hypertrophy. There's a difference between just increasing T levels or putting them in a superphysiological level which is needed for pronounced muscle growth. If you go to the Sopharma website you can reference the studies done on Tribestan. I'll save you the trouble and show you the results of their study on hormonal levels.

    Mean Testosterone Increase was 31%-41%
    Mean Estradiol Increase was 68%-81%

    Notice the increase in Estrogen levels is double that of Testoterone levels. Not the best thing that could happen to a bodybuilder, but definitely makes the "General" stand up and salute if you know what I mean. By the way, Sopharma is quick to point out the Testosterone increase but just (mistakenly I'm sure) happen to fail to direct your attention to the Estradiol increase.

    No PH's? Are you young or "natural"?

    Not sure if this is the appropriate thread for this but the recipe thread has been closed, so I'll throw it out here.

    I'm 43, and I do notice that Tribulus helps me significantly post PH cycle. Higher Power makes a transdermal product called "HCG", which they call a "trans-testicular"....... and contrary to what someone mentioned earlier, no it does not direct the user to apply it to their scrotum

    Anyway, I was hoping that either Curt2go or Chemo could please tell me if the transdermal recipe for PH's would work well for Tribulus? If not, any suggestions for a transdermal recipe would be most appreciated.

    If the PH recipe would work well, how many grams of Tribulus should be mixed in a 240 ml bottle?

    Thanks guys,

    It's not appropriate for a transdermal since the active ingredients are extremely moisture sensitive. So much so that they break down very quickly upon exposure to air. Sopharma claims blister sealed tabs are necessary to keep the ingredients fresh. As well, the active ingredients must be exposed to the gut, where they make a transformation, to work.

    For some reason, FUZU makes me hungry all day long (something I like), and I hear their coming out with a new stronger version.
