Tribulus contains an extract of Tribulus terrestris herb (aerial parts – leaves and stems) and contains steroidal saponins, mainly furostanol glycosides (including protodioscin and protogracillin) and small quantities of spirostanol glycosides, sterols and other compounds. This product is standardized to contain 90 mg per tablet of furostanol saponins to ensure optimal strength and quality. Protodioscin, a furanostanol saponin from Tribulus terrestris, is considered responsible for the plant’s effects on libido and vitality.
Supports healthy libido in men and women: Tribulus, a native plant of the Mediterranean region, is traditionally used in India, China, Bulgaria, and South Africa. In the Indian traditional system of Ayurveda where it is known as ‘Gokshura,’ Tribulus is renowned as an important tonic and aphrodisiac and used to support healthy libido. The active component protodioscin, which is contained in high amounts in Tribulus herb (and which converts in the body to dehydroepiandrosterone or ‘DHEA’) is considered responsible for the plant’s effects on libido in both women as well as men.
Supports normal menstrual flow in women: In traditional Ayurvedic medicine the health of the menstrual cycle is dependent on the flow of ‘Vata Dosha’ and when this is disturbed may affect the menstrual cycle length, duration and flow. Tribulus leaf is used in Ayurvedic medicine as a diuretic, as a tonic herb, and to support normal healthy menstrual flow.
Promotes vitality and an overall feeling of well-being: In Ayurveda, Tribulus herb is used as an important tonic for men and women alike. As a ‘tridosha,’ it is one of the few Ayurvedic herbs that is said to balance all three doshas (vata, pitta, and kapha). Doshas are the fundamental energies or principles which govern our bodies on the physical and emotional level, and are key to vitality and overall well-being.
