TRIBULUS TERRESTRIS-100% BULGARIAN
Tribulus terrestris, is a plant that grows in many tropical and moderate areas of the world. The current research indicates that the steroidal saponins, particularly the dominant saponin protodioscin, are responsible for the pharmacological activities of tribulus. Tribulus terrestris is a testosterone enhancer. It in-part blocks the receptors leading to the hypothalamus misinterpreting the body’s sex hormone levels as being lower than they really are. The hypothalamus signals to start the production of Luteinizing hormone (LH). When LH levels are increased, the natural production of testosterone also increases. LH is a hormone that also deals with sex drive. Naturally contains over 45% steroidal saponins. Meets Bulgarian state standard specification # ON 0273062-81. Patented Bulgarian Tribulus (harvested for highest extraction yields available).
Tribulus terrestris also has powerful effects on the liver stimulating bile flow and increasing levels of glutathione. Other benefits reported include immune stimulation, anti-fungal properties and heart protective effects.
Effect on Testosterone Level
Testosterone is the most important representative of the male sex hormones collectively called androgens. Using cholesterol as a base, the male gonads (testes) produce between 4 and 10 mg of testosterone per day. Testosterone itself is responsible for three major functions in animals.
Testosterone is responsible for the development of secondary male sex characteristics also called the androgenic functions of testosterone. Some examples of these characteristics are increased growth of body hair, beard growth, deep voice, increased production of sebaceous glands, development of the male genitals, aggressiveness, sexual behavior, libido, and the maturation of sperm.
It also promotes the protein biosynthesis that is responsible for the highly anabolic characteristics of testosterone. This is a pretty important function. It accelerates muscle buildup, increases the formation of red blood cells, speeds up regeneration, and speeds up recovery time after injuries or illness. It also stimulates the entire metabolism, which results in the burning of body fat.
Testosterone also plays an important role in the inhibition of the gonad regulating cycle, which regulates the amount of testosterone produced in the organism. If the testosterone level in the blood is high, the testes will signal the hypothalamus to release less LHRH (leuteinizing hormone releasing hormone). Thus the cells in the testes reduce the production of testosterone. During puberty, testosterone levels are at their lifetime peak. They begin to decline around the age of 23.
