Bulgarian Tribulus extract
The main question that comes in your mind is what is this Bulgarian Tribulus? Well not many people know about its existence. This mystery plant bears its roots in China, India and Southeastern Europe. It started appearing more in Western culture when it was shown to help Bulgarian bodybuilders. The extraction from the plant helps with the bodybuilders’ stamina and energy. Even more attention was lavished on Bulgarian Tribulus after it was learned that it could help improve many problems that affect adults today.
The active components are furostanol saponins (plant steroids) which are gotten from the leaf of the plant. Bulgarian Tribulus is used in the treatment of infertility, impotence and low sexual performance in men and women. Unlike the synthetic drugs on the market that help with sexual libido and body stamina due to low levels of testosterone, some prefer a natural alternative like Bulgarian Tribulus to an over the counter or prescription drug.
How does Bulgarian Tribulus work? It stimulates in a natural way the body to produce a hormon. This hormon is known as luteinizing hormones or LH. When LH levels hormone are high, the ovaries are stimulated to produce estrogen, and this stimulates the sexual function. It can replace a hormone therapy, naturally. For males, the increase of LH hormone stimulates the production of testosterone. The given amount of testosterone is very vital. Low levels results into depression, fatigue, sexual dysfunction and loss of strength. To the shock of many men who think that this can only affect the old, they should know that a decline in testosterone levels could begin as early as thirty for some.
Although Bulgarian Tribulus has been used for many centuries in traditional Chinese and Indian societies, it has only become popular in the West since the 70s. Bulgarian scientists conducted a study that linked consumption of Tribulus terrestris extract to increased levels of testosterone in infertile men. Since then, other studies were carried out, and eventually Terrestris extract has become more and more popular among bodybuilders and men who hope to have an improved libido and stamina in the bedroom and the gym. Thanks to them, the extract is now readily available in health food stores and online shops all over the world, and is a very important inclusion in many other herbal supplements designed for male health, vigor and vitality.
Does it work? Unfortunately, the results of the Bulgarian study were found to be inconclusive for normal men, as they only concentrated at the effects on men with fertility problems. Since then, there has been very little data to link the plant’s extract with increased levels of testosterone in healthy men who do not have problems with fertility. Other tests carried out using animals, which included rabbits, rats, and even primates have shown that the animals demonstrate increased sexual desire and other mating-relating activities after eating the plant’s extract. So it works but more so for those with fertility problems.
