Nutra-Life Tribulus is a high-potency male herbal tonic formulated to enhance the stamina and endurance needed during periods of intense physical exertion by active men of all ages, and to help maintain peripheral circulation and promote general well-being at such times. Tribulus Terrestris has a long history of use in both Indian and Chinese traditions as a means to assist in maintaining normal male physiology and function, and to help men perform in peak condition. This herb has been referred to as "Natural Viagra". So how does Tribulus work for men as a natural viagra. Tribulus has hit the market with astounding popularity, after its release in 1999. It seems this popularity was due to the perception of Tribulus as a 'herbal Viagra' to boost men's potency and it certainly works well in this area.
So how does it work in the body? Tribulus is a herb that can be taken by both men and women, producing a different action in both. In men it boosts the secretion of lutenising hormone (LH) secretion from the pituitary gland and in pre-menopausal women it promotes follicle stimulating hormone (FSH). In men, Tribulus has shown to increase testosterone levels by over 50%. It does this by increasing LH, which in turn stimulates the production of testosterone. It is interesting to note that steroids suppress LH which reduces and sometimes shuts down the body's production of testosterone. A study was performed on 212 men aged between 14 to 60, with various reproductive disorders, including reduced sperm motility, inflammation of the prostate gland and impotency. 3 to 6 250mg tablets of standardized Tribulus extract produced a pronounced stimulation of sexual function. Over 30-40 days, there was improved libido in all forms of impotency and significant increases in sperm motility, in those with this problem.
Can women take Tribulus? Yes they can. If a women takes this herb, it will stimulate ovarian follicles. When given from day 5 until day 14 of the menstrual cycle (I.e. from the end of menstruation till ovulation), Tribulus will promote the development and maturation of the ovarian follicle. This in turn will make a better egg and improve fertility and after ovulation, will result in a larger and more productive corpus luteum. The corpus luteum produces progesterone in the latter half of the female cycle and a progesterone deficiency is a major contributor to PMS and other menstrual disorders. It will improve fertility levels and libido. In post menopausal women it promotes androgen production. This prevents the development of Female Androgen Deficiency Syndrome or FADS. This occurs when the production of androgens (androstenedione and testosterone) by the ovaries and adrenal glands declines after menopause. Androgens are the major source of post menopausal hormones and are converted to other hormones. Increasing androgen levels has also been found to be beneficial in the maintenance of bone density, in the prevention of osteoporosis and to also help protect with cardiovascular health. This herb helps reduce menopausal symptoms dramatically, improving the libido, mood, memory, cognition and energy. Overall the nutritive, restorative and balancing actions of this formula make it one of the most effective remedies for the effects of stress, aging and modern life.
