Indications and Usage
In traditional Chinese medicine Tribulus terrestris is known under the name bai ji li According to Bensky and Clavey, 2004 (Materia medica 3rd edition, pp. 975–976) Tribulus terrestris is ci ji li “Confusion with Astragali complanati Semen (sha yuan zi) originally known as white ji li led some writers to attribute tonifying properties to this herb…”
Tribulus terrestris has long been a constituent in tonics in Indian ayurveda practice, where it is known by its Sanskrit name, “gokshura/ sarrata” It is also used as an aphrodisiac, diuretic and nervine in Ayurveda, and in Unani, another medical system of India.
Animal studies in rats, rabbits and primates have demonstrated that administration of Tribulus terrestris extract can produce statistically significant increases in levels of testosterone, dihydrotestosterone and dehydroepiandrosterone,and produces effects suggestive of aphrodisiac activity.On the other hand, one recent study found that T. terrestris caused no increase in testosterone or LH in young men,and another found that a commercial supplement containing androstenedione and herbal extracts, including T. terrestris, was no more effective at raising testosterone levels than androstenedione alone.
The active chemical in T. terrestris is likely to be protodioscin (PTN).In a study with mice, Tribulus was shown to enhance mounting activity and erection better than testosterone cypionate, However, testosterone cypionate is a synthetic ester of testosterone engineered for its longer activity, rather than an immediate effect. Testosterone cypionate has a half-life of 8 days and is administereed every 2–4 weeks in humans for testosterone replacement.The proerectile aphrodisiac properties were concluded to likely be due to the release of nitric oxide from the nerve endings innervating the corpus cavernosum penis. Also, T. terrestris was shown to have strong inhibitory activity on COX-2.
Adverse effects from supplementation with Tribulus terrestris are rare and tend to be insignificant. However, some users report an upset stomach, which can usually be counteracted by taking it with food.Another rare side effect which has been reported is gynaecomastia,which while potentially problematic does tend to support the purported androgenic-anabolic effects of this plant, if it really was T. terrestris that caused it and not androgens, as the source doesn’t say that the product was tested in order to detect what chemicals it contained.
