Tribulus Terrestris is an herb grown in Africa, India, and parts of Eastern Europe, and has been used to support the production of testosterone. Various reports are given concerning the degree of testosterone elevation, ranging from 30 to 50 percent. In younger men, where the testosterone level is already normally high, it is unlikely that the percent increase of testosterone would be as great as would be seen in older men. Nevertheless, Tribulus Terrestris is attributed with demonstrable value in athletic development, if augmented legal anabolic effects are valued. Its emerging use in North America has focused on athletic muscular and performance enhancement, and the medical sexual problems of healthy sexual performance and reduced sex drive.
Testosterone is a natural endogenous anabolic steroid, unlike the synthetic or illegal anabolic steroids that are associated with adverse side effects. Anabolic is from the Greek, meaning to build up. Athletic use of Tribulus terrestris results in greater muscle mass and stamina, and facilitates muscle recovery. For over 20 years Tribulus terrestris has been used by Eastern European bodybuilders and other athletes as an herbal approach to enhance muscle mass and performance.
The medical problems of impotence and failing sexual interest can stem from diminished testosterone production. And while reduced testosterone levels may be thought of as an "older man's" problem, the condition can develop without regard to age. Clinical understanding into the nature of healthy sexual performance encompasses a combination of factors. Two central considerations are blood circulation of the penis, and/or testosterone levels. Subtle downward changes in testosterone levels can combine with micro-circulation factors to produce degrees of healthy sexual performance. Declining sexual interest could exist apart from healthy sexual performance and may respond to enhanced testosterone levels.
Your testosterone level should be determined by your physician. If found to be below the normal range for your age, an herbal stimulation of your own testosterone as a first-step may be preferable to pharmaceutical drugs, including synthetic testosterone known as methyltestosterone. Physicians are caring and sensitive about their patients' sexual concerns, and provide knowledgeable assistance. Tribulus terrestris appears able also to increase sperm count and motility, making it useful for possible physician consideration in cases of male infertility.

Increasing testosterone levels in older men should be guided by a physician to minimize risk for prostate enlargement or cancer. All men are encouraged to supplement with zinc, (as discussed above), while using Tribulus terrestris to reduce the risk of forming increased levels of dihydrotestosterone.
Tribulus terrestris is absolutely contra-indicated in men with enlarged prostate glands or who are known to be at risk of prostate enlargement, and in men who have prostate or testicular cancer. Increased levels of testosterone will drive these disorders.
