COPYRIGHT © MR- Tribulus Terrestris: Origins Tribulus Terrestris (Tribulus terrestris L.) originated in the two most ancient medicines in the world: Ayurvedic medicine (India) and traditional Chinese medicine. The plant has been used for more than 3,000 years. Its different effects on the body are well-known, and it enjoys a good reputation. Traditionally, it was used to combat diseases of the liver and kidneys, as well as urinary diseases. Today, however, the usage of Tribulus has evolved (especially in Europe, the United States and Canada), and it has come to be most broadly used as an aphrodisiac to stimulate the libido. The plant (especially its fruit) is also commonly used for its anabolic effect by bodybuilders because it promotes the building of muscle mass. Tribulus is considered by herbalists to be an excellent adaptogen (it adapts to the body’s different needs).
When discussing all of the documented tribulus terrestris benefits, the first one that is usually mentioned is related to libido and enhancing overall sex drive. This is the number one reason that many have turned to this plant. Nowadays it seems that it is also very popular in enhancing athletic performance and increasing muscle mass. The reason that tribulus terrestris is so great for this specifically is because it helps enhance testosterone in the body. This hormone is responsible for sex drive and for physically exertion and energy.
