Questions About Tribulus Terrestris

Hi everyone,

I’m wondering about Tribulus. If anyone ever tried it, gained muscle and stopped taking it, did you lose all your mass?

And I heard that my body would find a way to stabilize or lower the effects(testosterone gain) or the tribulus after a while and make it less effective. I would like to have more precisions about that… like how much time it takes.

thanks for the feedback ! :slight_smile:

Tribulas will stimulate an increase of test production to high natural levels. Now if you combine your increased test with the proper nutrition and weightlifting workouts you can increase your strength and muscle mass.

When you stop taking tribulas your test levels will go back to what you were naturally producing before. If you continue to eat right and lift you should be able to maintain any and all strength and muscle gains you had while taking tribulus.

From the nature of your question I think you may be confusing tribulas use with steroid use where often times (not always) when you come off cycle you can lose much of the strength and increased muscle mass you had while on.

Steroids = synthetic androgens often used by bodybuilders in levels far higher then the body can naturally produce. Hence if you don’t know what you are doing can invite many unwanted side effects into the equation.

Natural test booster such as Alpha Male or TRIBEX= natural compounds that stimulate in increase in a males natural production of test however still within the limits the body make. Slower gains overtime that are easier to keep with little to no risk of adverse side effects.

Hope this helps

I was looking at this product last night and thinking about ordering some too with that price tag. Come on people, any testimonials or experiences using this?

Try searching for “Tribex” and you’ll find plenty of feedback from users.

I have used cycles of TRIBEX and Alpha Male many times over the years. I am using Alpha Male right now and for a thirty six year old male feel my body comp and lift numbes are pretty fair. Check out my blog if you want check those numbers out. Sorry, I didn’t add that.

I wake up with wood when I use Alpha Male.

This stuff is great but I do recommend cycling it. For nearly four months I’ve been alternating TRIBEX for two weeks then vitex for two weeks. I’m leaner and stronger. I’m much more aggressive in the gym and well, um, I have a lot more “stuff” if you know what I mean. I’m very happy with the results, and so is my wife, again, if you know what I mean.

Hi, silly newbie question:

I heard that people are “stacking” TRIBEX with HOT-ROX Extreme.

  1. What is stacking?
  2. Is TRIBEX for males and females?
  3. Will I grow facial hair or something if I take it? I’m female.
  4. Will it help me burn fat. I’m a soft little newbie trying to get some muscle on my body to burn off the fattness.

Stacking refers to stacking two different supplements together for a better overall effect. Males who increase testosterone levels through TRIBEX and modify their nutrition for fat loss through HOT-ROX Extreme get a better overall effect by combining the two since increased test in males contributes to fat loss and retention of muscle.

In females a very effective stack would that would increase fat loss and promote muscle hardness would be HOT-ROX Extreme and Se7en. I have heard of females using tribulus for increasing energy, muscle mass, and sex drive, but I don’t have any detailed knowledge on that. If you do a search on the “Internets” for tribulus & women I am sure you would find information on this.

Take care,
