GLOSSARY
TRIBULUS TERRESTRIS (TRIBULUS)

Tribulus terrestris (Tribulus)

 

How does it work?

Tribulus is a western and traditional ayurvedic herbal medicine used for its aphrodisiac, oestrogenic, ergogenic, diuretic, urolithic, antispasmodic, cardioprotective and antimicrobial activity.1 This is due to containing steroidal saponins including protodioscin, diosgenin and yamogenin.2 These are found mostly in the fruit however tribulus grown in different soils can result in constituent variations and therefore therapeutic effect.3 Tribulus has been shown to improve libido, erectile function and spermatogenesis through increasing DHEA, androgenic status and nitric oxide (NO) release.4 Saponins also assist in increasing follicle stimulating hormone (FSH) in women which increases levels of oestradiol, therefore exerting its oestrogenic effect.5 Tribulus’ cardioprotective activity is also due to the saponin content increasing NO release and encouraging arterial smooth muscle relaxation showing a antihypertensive effect.6

What results can be expected?

Tribulus may assist in increasing levels of DHEA, androgens and NO; and FSH and oestrogen in women, therefore assisting in improving libido, sexual function, erectile function in men and menopausal/menstrual regularity issues in women.7 Tribulus may also act as a beneficial adjunct treatment to lowering high blood pressure.8
