NATURAL MENíS HEALTH: SEXUAL HEALTH - SUPPLEMENTS FOR INCREASING LIBIDO-TRIBULUS
Commonly known as tribulus, the herb tribulus terrestris is greatly prized in the Ayurvedic health system where it has been used for centuries for its aphrodisiac properties and its tonic effect on the urinary tract and the reproductive systems of both men and women.
In recent studies male volunteers were given 750 mg of tribulus for five days. It was found that their level of testosterone increased. Tribulus has a positive effect on stimulating sexual function and has also been found to improve the mobility and rate of movement of sperm, increase ejaculatory quantity, and improve libido.
The standardised extract of the Bulgarian tribulus leaf must be used. Many products are made from extracts containing the Chinese or Indian tribulus berry, but it is uncertain whether these have the same beneficial effects as the Bulgarian variety. Ask your naturopath or health store assistant to advise if you are unsure.
