Tribulus Terrestris Benefits, Uses, Side Effects and Functions


Discover the Function, Sources and Benefits of the Health Supplement Ingredient Tribulus Terrestris, or Caltrop

Tribulus terrestris – also known as caltrop, devil’s weed, devil’s thorn, puncture vine or simply Tribulus – is a fruit-bearing herb that grows in subtropical regions. Extracts from the plant have long been used in traditional Chinese and Indian Ayurvedic medicine to promote virility and vitality, and to treat health complaints. Today, Tribulus terrestris is often used as an ingredient in health and bodybuilding supplements, such as HGH Testosterone Plus, Anapolan-MAX 50, ClenXDV and RoidX Juice.

Functions of Tribulus Terrestris

Various constituents of the Tribulus terrestris plant are credited with its beneficial properties. Protodioscin, the plant’s primary bioactive component, appears to enhance libido and sexual function by increasing sex hormone levels. Its saponins are believed to have cytotoxic and antihyperlipidemic effects, while tribulosin demonstrates cardioprotective properties. Because Tribulus terrestris may have the potential to increase testosterone levels, some theorize this can translate to a positive impact on body composition and athletic performance.

Sources of Tribulus Terrestris

Native to Asia, Africa and southern Europe, Tribulus terrestris is harvested for its extracts. The plant should not be consumed raw, as its spine-covered fruit is considered unsafe to eat; in fact, some reports indicate that eating Tribulus fruit may cause collapsed lungs. However, its extracts have been used in traditional medicines and natural dietary supplements for many years. Tribulus extracts may be derived from the root, leaf or fruit of the plant.

Tribulus Terrestris Benefits and Uses

In traditional Chinese medicine and Ayurveda, Tribulus terrestris has been used to enhance libido and sexual function, increase energy and strength, and treat a variety of health issues, such as heart problems, chest pain, skin disorders and kidney stones. Preliminary research suggests that Tribulus extract does indeed deliver many potential health benefits, from lowering blood pressure and blood glucose levels to supporting cardiovascular and organ health. It has also been shown to have analgesic (pain-relieving), anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effects. Furthermore, some evidence suggests it may have future potential for treating breast, prostate and UVB-induced skin cancer.

Due to its purported aphrodisiac and erectogenic effects, Tribulus extract is commonly used as an ingredient in supplements designed to enhance male sexual health. It can also be found in bodybuilding supplements that are formulated to improve muscle strength and lean mass; and its cardioprotective and analgesic properties may further benefit those engaged in intense training or exercise.

Side Effects of Tribulus Terrestris and Potential Interactions

Supplements containing Tribulus terrestris extracts are generally considered safe for healthy adults. Some minor side effects have been reported, such as gastrointestinal irritation, gastric reflux and difficulty sleeping. However, individuals with certain medical conditions should exercise caution when taking supplements containing Tribulus extract. Some evidence suggests it may worsen prostate conditions or prostate cancer and can potentially harm fetal development, so men with prostate issues and women who are pregnant or breastfeeding should avoid Tribulus extract.

Because Tribulus terrestris has been shown to lower blood pressure and blood sugar levels, it may cause blood pressure or glucose levels to drop too low if taken in conjunction with antihypertensive drugs or diabetes medication. Tribulus extract can cause more frequent urination, and may increase the effects of other diuretics. Using Tribulus supplements with the blood thinner clopidogrel may increase the risk of blood clots.

More detailed safety information on Tribulus terrestris side effects and interactions can be found on healthcare websites such as WebMD. As with any medication or health supplement, it is best to consult your physician before taking dietary supplements containing Tribulus extract.

Tribulus Terrestris Research and Studies

Numerous studies have examined the health benefits of Tribulus terrestris. Resarch published in the Journal of Ethnopharmacology, Life Sciences, Ancient Science of Life and Phytotherapy Research support its antihypertensive and cardioprotective effects, while studies published in the Annals of the New York Academy of Sciences and Indian Journal of Experimental Biology demonstrates its anti-diabetic properties. Its potential as a cancer-fighting agent has been documented in numerous publications, including the Asian Pacific Journal of Cancer Prevention, Journal of Ethnopharmacology, Neoplasma, Pathobiology and Journal of Photochemistry and Photobiology.

A review in the Journal of Dietary Supplements attempted to determine the effect of Tribulus terrestris on testosterone concentrations, and reported that a number of animal studies displayed a significant increase in serum testosterone levels after Tribulus administration, but the effect was only noted in humans when Tribulus was administered as part of a combined supplement therapy. However, a pilot study published in the Journal of Sex & Marital Therapy found that men with partial androgen deficiency experienced statistically significant increases in testosterone levels and erectile function following Tribulus supplementation.

Several studies have examined the impact of Tribulus terrestris supplements on athletes. A review published in the Journal of Human Kinetics concluded that there is little reliable data on the usefulness of Tribulus supplements in competitive sports. However, a group of Lithuanian researchers published positive findings in the Fiziolohichnyĭ Zhurnal and Acta Medica Lituanica, reporting that athletes on a 20-day regimen of Tribulus terrestris supplements experienced significant increases in anaerobic alactic muscular power, aerobic capacity and blood testosterone, as well as reduced lactate concentration. In light of the limited and conflicting findings in this area, further clinical studies are needed to definitively support the effects of Tribulus terrestris on the testosterone levels, athletic performance and body composition of athletes and bodybuilders.

For additional Tribulus terrestris research, refer to the PubMed site sponsored by the National Institutes of Health (NIH).

Bodybuilding Motivation and Inspiration

Inspiration and Motivation for Bodybuilders

There are times when we all need that extra push, a reason to keep going or a kick-start as we begin our journey to achieve a new goal. We've been on the prowl for some great bodybuilding motivation to keep you going or to help you begin anew. What we found was some video encouragement. We discovered the best bodybuilders of 2015, one of the most talked about bodybuilding rivalries around, and six secrets to success for both bodybuilding and life. We also put together a special Bodybuilding Motivation Pinterest board with loads of pins to get you pumped.

The Best Bodybuilding Performers in 2015

Let's take a look at a few of the top contenders for 2015. You can see how they workout with such determination and dedicate their lives to be the best bodybuilders in the world. They do whatever it takes to be at the top and lead the way in the world of bodybuilding. Who motivates you to try harder and dig deep, so that you will join the incredible bodybuilders on this list?

Branch Warren "Quadrasaurus" Roelly Winklaar "The Beast" Kai Greene "The Predator" Hidetada Yamagishi "The Dragon" Victor Martinez "The Dominican Dominator" Dennis Wolf "The Big Bad Wolf" Phil Heath "The Gift"

Arnold Schwarzeneggar’s Six Rules of Success

How can you achieve more? What are the secrets to success? From his bodybuilding career to his stint with establishing an income with real estate to his success as a Hollywood actor to his time as a politician, Arnold Schwarzeneggar has had many notable successes in life. Schwarzeneggar shares his rules to success in life during his 2009 USC commencement speech. These six rules can be applied to your gym training, your bodybuilding efforts, at your job, with your family, for your favorite hobby or just in your everyday life.

Trust Yourself Break the Rules Don’t be Afraid to Fail Don’t Listen to the Naysayers Work Your Butt off Give Back

Motivated by Rivalry

Over the past few years a rivalry has brewed between Phil Heath and Kai Greene. The Predator and The Gift go muscle to muscle in many competitions. Year after year, they've battled for the prestigious bodybuilding title of Mr. Olympia. And year after year, Phil Heath has won the title. Kai Greene has continued to get bigger and better. He doesn't give up and works harder to give it another try. Their special rivalry really came to a head during a rather intense Mr. Olympia 2014 press conference with some serious smack talk. Again, Phil Heath took home the title. Now, we just have to wait with anticipation until the Mr. Olympia 2015 competition to find out who will be the victor.

Core Workout Videos and Tips

Get Fit With Core Workout Training Videos and Tips

Is core training a part of your regular routine? We don’t mean the occasional sit-up or push-up. We mean giving your core muscles a more diversified workout. Strengthening the muscles around your trunk and pelvis, including your abs, obliques, glutes and traps. Your core truly consists of everything except your arms and legs. By working out your core muscles, you can strengthen and flatten your abs, stabilize your lower back, enhance your flexibility, improve your balance and coordination, and even improve your breathing.

The cool thing about core exercises is that you don’t have to go to the gym or have special equipment to get a good workout, but you can if you want to go that route. It’s really just about doing any exercise that involves coordinating your back and abdominal muscles. Whether you’d like to focus on bodyweight exercises or break out the free weights, you can get an incredible core-strengthening workout. We've gathered together some YouTube videos and created a Pinterest board specifically for core workouts to get you on your way to a well-rounded fitness routine.

Andy McDermott Fitness Presents 79 Core Exercises
