Tribulus Banned in ADF

Its like my dog died…

Today I found out that Tribulus is a banned substance in the ADF (Australian Defence Force). I can no longer take my favourite Biotest supplement, Alpha Male. The only positive is that I found out via a conversation with my Doc, and not via a positive drug test.

I still dont understand why we ban something that can normalise low T levels. I mean, who would want to increase muscle mass, lower fat mass and improve mood?

Trib would never show up in a test. Those tests can only pick up when test levels are elevated above normal baselines. Trib would not bring your levels above and beyond that which your body could optimally produce.
