    So I started to take a basic Tribulus Terrestis (http://www.bodybuilding.com/store/hp/trib.html) supplement to add to my cocktail of supplements I take. Its only been day two of taking it and I do feel more stronger and more energy. But it all could be psychosomatic.

    Anyone else have any good results with Tribulus? I have heard mixed reviews about it.

    I've had good results when using tribulus. Nothing to dramatic but it seems like it allowed me to push myself a bit harder during workouts and bodyfat level seemed to decrease a little. I guess everyone is different guys respond more favorably to it than others.

    It's ok. I've been taking it off and on since the late eighties. I blame it for my back hair because I didn't have any back hair until I started taking it. I've noticed body hair grows pretty quickly when taking it.

    It's an ingredient in a couple of natural pro-testosterones that I take, I would never buy it individually because then you start talking about some real money if you buy everything separately.

    Which pro-testosterones do you take? Ive talked to a guy at the supp store about some of the pro-hormone stuff they have and you have to do all the after cycle stuff and I just thought, "you might as well do the real stuff if you have to do all that with pro-hormones."

    i take it , as well as Argyl+ from GNC .

    it shows results, but you need at least 1400mg / day i believe.
    I have noticed a difference also , not in gains at the gym but rather in general energy and it improved my overall mood , i feel more "positive" somehow.
    I also noticed an increase in sperm volume.

    i'm also curious about other pro-testosterone products.
    I intend to consult a physician soon anyway, to measure my current levels of test.

    Interesting you've noticed an increase in sperm volume. You are taking 1400mg of Tribulus a day or 1400mg total of that and the other two supplements?

    In general there are really no concrete studies that PROVE tribulus is effective in increasing test levels but on the flip side, there is no proof it doesn't either. Everybody reacts differently to "natural" supplementation so, monitor yourself for any negative side effects. Most likely it won't hurt you but the claims they make on most of those things are greatly exaggerated especially when they claim steroid like results from taking it. Pro-hormones can be very tough on your liver so it's always good to supplement with a liver support product to offset the toxicity of processing prohormones.

    .....but increasing sperm volume sounds like a good reason to try it again and take a bit higher does than the label recommends. Worth a try anyway.

    I'm not talking about taking pro-hormones. I am talking about natural pro-testosterone herbal supplements, such as tribulus. I take Paravol sometimes(and tribulus is one of the ingredients). Right now Im taking Activate by Designer Supplements, and Myotest by SAN.

    Yeah, I've noticed some positive side effects in the bedroom from tribulus. I took a combination of tribulus and longjax and was suprised at the increase in semen volume. It only seems to happen when I start a new cycle with the supps though.

    I do think it makes a difference. I'm just saying not to expect miracles. You still have to bust your ass at the gym and eat right but it can give you a bit of a boost.

    most labels recommend 1400 mg/day . And that's also what i read over the net. Otherwise there is no difference.
    I only take L- Arginine and Tribulus.

    and i agree with sashaman, it just gives a little extra energy.

    I started taking tribulus when i got stuck in a rut a month ago. After a week I busted through it and now I'm adding more weight faster. It's pretty cool. Being an herbalist, I really believe it worked. I still take it along with rhodiola and ashwagandha now. All amazing herbs. I've actually started documenting my progress with my own herbal supplements..constantly trying new things for what works for me. Certain herbs won't work or agree with everyone...everyone is unique..

    Looooove the stuff.
    Ultimate Nutrition has the best price and the best quality of % of saponins.
    Being 48 (49 on Tuesday) the stuff is great.
    I basically double up on the dose and I added DHEA (since I'm old). lol

    It's made a world of difference!!!

    Yes ... it can (and did) increase the body hair some.
    (but hey ... my bf LOVES that).

    Just cycle the stuff.
    Do 5 days on ... 2 days off.
    Take it with food if it give you heartburn.
    I can do that to a rare few.

    Tribulus is an alternative to Viagra. But most important, it comes from natural resources which give you the peace of mind that no chemicals are included
