Buy Tribulus terrestris: First of all, what is it?
Tribulus terrestris is a plant of European and Asian origin widely used in Chinese and Indian medicine. Tribulus extract is used as a herbal supplement and has many benefits.
It acts by stimulating vasodilatation and the natural production of testosterone, the main male sex hormone, but present, in smaller quantities, also in women. Its main active compound is saponin. It induces the production of testosterone.
Protodioscin is a compound of the saponin responsible for vasodilatation. This is important to understand the benefits of Tribulus terrestris.
Who can use Tribulus terrestris?
Tribulus terrestris can be used by people over 18 years old.
Tribulus terrestris – Effects and benefits
Human research has shown that the use of Tribulus terretris helps to increase libido. This effect is caused by a transient increase in testosterone levels.
The increase in erection time has been proven by human research and this effect is due to the vasodilating action of protodioscin. In addition, protodioscin can discreetly increase testosterone levels, which would contribute to this effect. However, the increase in testosterone levels has only been demonstrated in animal research. In humans, there is no evidence yet.
Tribulus terretris also stimulates sperm production (spermatogenesis) in men. In women, it promotes the improvement of ovulation. These effects contribute to fertility.
Helps the vagina with blood supply
There are also animal studies that show that the vasodilating action of protodioscin leads to better blood supply to the vaginal canal in women.
Reduces the sensation of heat and night sweating in women during menopause.
The mechanism of action that causes a reduction in the sensation of heat and night sweats (night sweats) in women during menopause is not yet known.
Reduces symptoms of premenstrual tension
The means by which the use of Tribulus terretris causes this effect are under study.
Helps reduce blood pressure
This effect, observed in animal studies, occurs because protodioscin stimulates the production of nitric oxide, a substance that causes vasodilatation.
Controls bad cholesterol (LDL)
Animal research has also shown that the use of Tribulus terrestris also helps to control cholesterol, but the mechanism responsible for this effect is not yet known.
Prevents heart problems
Saponins present in Tribulus terrestris may help prevent early death of heart cells. Prostodioscin inhibits a substance called angiotensin which, when found at high levels in the bloodstream, causes changes in blood pressure and increases the risk of cardiovascular disease.
Increases muscle mass and reduces body fat indices
Lean body mass gain in physical activity practitioners has been observed in studies conducted on animals with slight muscle growth. In humans, this effect has not yet been proven. The decrease in fat percentage would be the consequence of an increase in muscle mass.
Reduces water retention
Tribulus terrestris has a diuretic action, leading to a reduction in water retention (feeling of swelling).
Helps to regulate blood glucose levels
It has been shown in recent studies that Tribulus terrestris extract has the ability to reduce blood glucose levels both in people who have high blood glucose levels but are not considered diabetic, and in people with diabetes.
Helps to fight against depression by increasing the level of hormones.
