Tribulus products are slated by some, and sworn by by others. Tribulus has
been around for many years as a herbal "testosterone booster / regulator"
. Having used this and other Tribulus products, I can definitely say for myself,
I have noticed subtle changes in mood and sex-drive; neither to the same degree
as experienced on certain pro-hormones, but significant none the less. I would
also suggest, the differences would not be as significant in males younger than
perhaps mid to late 20's. (though that's purely my own speculation and not scientifically
backed). I can't say I have noticed any difference between this Reflex Tribulus
and the likes of Biotest"Tribex 500" or Chemical Nutrition "Pro-test"
so realistically, decide which brand you prefer, and give it a go. This Reflex
Tribulus does however represent an excellent value for money Tribulus
Terrestris supplement. (On to Reflex product details below)
The Eastern Block countries like Russia, Bulgaria, and Czechoslovakia, for
years have dominated Olympic weightlifting by using a specially prepared Bulgarian
Tribulus Terrestris extract, it is probably the most potent natural
testosterone-enhancing product in the world today. Now, for the first time in
the U.K., we can offer this amazing product, exclusively from Reflex Nutrition.
Some Tribulus Terrestris Questions and Answers.
Since Bulgarian Tribulus is so potent and effective for raising testosterone
levels why hasn't it been available until now?
Bulgarian Tribulus is very hard to find, only a couple of farms in Bulgaria
harvest this incredible herb. It's limited in availability and extremely difficult
to source direct. No company in the U.K. has actually been able to source the
raw material direct, and then taken the necessary steps to make the finished
product to IS09001 standards. It has taken Reflex Nutrition over a year to find
both a specialist grower of the natural herb and a company that has the technology
to standardise the Tribulus to a minimum of 50% Protodioscin. The finished product
is encapsulated in our state of the art factory to exacting standards; each
capsule contains 250mg of pure Bulgarian Tribulus Terrestris (50% Protodioscin).
What's wrong with other Tribulus type products ?
Like most people you may have assumed that ordinary Tribulus terrestris (standardised
extracts usually contain 40-50% saponins), would provide you with all the benefits
associated with Bulgarian Tribulus. That's a major problem because ordinary
Tribulus terrestris is not the same thing ... not even close. Tribulus terrestris
is a herbal plant that grows all over the world. Bulgarian Tribulus Terrestris
is different though. It is the only Tribulus Terrestris that is standardised
to contain Protodioscin. This steroidal plant saponin is directly responsible
for the Testosterone boosting effects seen in clinical studies; the Tribulus
used in these studies have nearly always been of Bulgarian origin. So if in
the past you've tried a Tribulus product without the results you expected you
now know why, it probably wasn't Bulgarian Tribulus.
How does Bulgarian Tribulus Terrestris work?
Bulgarian Tribulus Terrestris causes the body to release luteinizing hormone,
which sends a signal to the testes to produce more testosterone. The increased
Testosterone levels then have a direct effect on strength, sexual function and
muscle mass. Testosterone levels can be elevated by as much as 40% when using
Bulgarian Tribulus Terrestris.
How long should you take Bulgarian Tribulus Terrestris ?
It should be taken every day for 8 weeks. The typical dose is 3 capsules daily
for people under 90kg and 4-6 capsules for people over 90kg. It is active in
the body for approximately 8 hours. So you need to take it 3 times per day to
ensure that your body continually releases luteinizing hormone, which results
in testosterone production. Once you have used Bulgarian Tribulus Terrestris
for 8 weeks, the body will no longer continue to produce excessive testosterone.
However, after ceasing the use for only 2 weeks, the body will respond to it
again. The 8 weeks-on, 2 weeks-off schedule can be continued indefinitely.
If Bulgarian Tribulus is so powerful and increases your own testosterone
production, does it aromatize? Can you get "gyno" (bitch tits) from
Absolutely not. In fact, the opposite is true. Bulgarian Tribulus will help
normalize oestrogen levels in the body. If your oestrogen levels are too high,
it will decrease them to normal levels. And if they are too low, it will raise
them to normal levels.
Is it dangerous for women to take Tribulus containing products ?
No, women can take it. There have been clinical studies on menopausal women
that show Tribulus can reverse the effects of menopause. Testosterone levels
in women become slightly elevated, but not enough to result in any masculinising
effects. They are able to lose body fat more rapidly, increase strength and
lean mass with no water retention.
How long do you need to take Bulgarian Tribulus before you notice results?
Since Tribulus was initially used as a treatment for impotency and sterility,
within a few days men will usually notice harder and more frequent erections.
Women usually experience increased sex drive. But to get the full muscle-enhancing
and strength-increasing benefits of Bulgarian Tribulus you have to use it for
at least 4 weeks (preferably 8 weeks, if you really want to experience results).
You'll be stronger in all your lifts and have more endurance in the gym. But
to gain noticeable muscle, you need 8 weeks of Bulgarian Tribulus.
Finally, an Incredible alternative to Pro-Hormones.
This is truly an incredible product. With so many potentially harmful pro-hormone
products (Pete's Note- Pro-hormones are very safe when used
correctly and within acceptable dosage levels and for recommended duration of
each course.) on the market finally there is a very effective, safe and totally
natural herbal product to boost Testosterone levels dramatically. And like all
Reflex products it's made to IS09001 standards, with guaranteed quality and
