The Tribulus terrestris has been used for centuries in ancient Greece, India and Africa to support fertility and renewal of the body.
Recent scientific studies show that, although in fact contains no hormones, Tribulus helps to support healthy hormone production and good male reproductive health.
The Tribulus has been used by some of the most elite athletes in the world, but can be used by recreational athletes as well.
The minimum content of 45% saponin makes NOW Tribulus one of the most powerful formulas available.
It is believed that Tribulus terrestris affects testosterone production by activating the body to release luteinizing hormone (LH), which acts as the agent of the body to produce more testosterone.
By promoting the production of the body''s own hormones, it works within the natural limits of the body to help men in particular, achieve growth and improve strength, endurance and muscle potential.
The Tribulus will not cause the body to ''die on producing more and more each hormone, but rather it balances natural hormone levels.
The Tribulus has medicinal effects on the panel of steroidal glycosides belonging to the class of natural products called "saponins'' (either steroid or triterpenoid).
The saponins are not acting directly in the body, but can be used as raw materials to synthesize suitable compounds and have a strong hormonal activity but also anti-inflammatory action.
