Herbs Tribulus is a tonic herb that has been introduced
into the world herbal market in a new standardized state. Scientific
researchers in Bulgaria have discovered that when Tribulus is organically-grown under certain strict conditions and
harvested at a newly discovered, specific time, the herb has an ability to support
healthy hormone balance. The above-ground portion of Bulgarian Tribulus has
been determined to be an adaptogen. Dragon Herbs only uses Bulgarian-grown and
processed Tribulus terrestris.
Herbs Tribulus helps support healthy
hormonal balance and has positive effects on a number of fundamental physiological
functions. It is useful for those who wish to build lean muscle as well as by
those who desire to experience improvement in their sex lives. Bulgarian
Tribulus provides support to menopausal women. It may help with hot flashes in
otherwise healthy menopausal women. It may also help with the common symptoms
associated with the menstrual cycle.
Herbs Tribulus contains substances of biological significance, including plant saponins,,
flavonoids, alkaloids, unsaturated acids, oils, calcium, phosphorus, iron and
protein, which individually and in concert, are responsible for its many and
varied physiological effects.
presence and quantities of the pharmacologically important metabolites depend
on the parts of the plants used (above ground parts: leaves and fruits and, to
a lesser extent, the shoots) and on the conditions of growth, cultivation and
harvesting. The following ensures that Dragon Herbs Tribulus delivers the

Tribulus terrestris has played an
important role in folk medicine for millennia. The ancient Greeks used it as a
general tonic. In India, Tribulus has
been used since ancient times for its aphrodisiac properties. Tribulus is
widely recommended in Ayurvedic rejuvenative formulations, particularly in the area
of promoting sexual health. For all of its therapeutic and adaptogenic effects,
the most common cross cultural use of the herb has, nevertheless, been in promoting
sexual health for men and women, and for increasing the libido of both sexes.
1985, little was known about the plant in America other than by a small group
of scientists, herbalists, and doctors trained in Oriental and Ayurvedic
traditions. Even then, little notice was taken of the remarkable aspects of Tribulus terrestris. It is only recently
that the adaptogenic and fitness-supporting benefits of Tribulus terrestris were brought to the attention of the athletic
and body building community in the United States.
adverse effects have been noted in any of the clinical trials or human research
studies. Toxicity is extremely low in both acute and long term animal studies
(based on the animal data, a human would have to consume approximately 100
times the average recommended dose of 750mg per day). There are no
contraindications, and no negative effects are presently known to exist when Tribulus terrestris is used as a dietary

Bulgaria is Di Tao for Tribulus as a tonic. Bulgarian Tribulus Terrestris differs significantly from the Tribulus Terrestris extracts from India
Using a special method of harvesting and
pharmaceutical preparation, Bulgarian Tribulus
Terrestris has a very high concentration of saponins. Indian and Chinese Tribulus Terrestris do not.
Chinese and Indian Tribulus Terrestris are made from a different part of the plant and
is harvested at a different time of the year. The photochemistry of Chinese and
Indian Tribulus Terrestris is
considerably different from that of Bulgarian
Chinese and Indian Tribulus Terrestris does not have the same physiological functions
as Bulgarian Tribulus Terrestris. At
the best, Indian and Chinese Tribulus
Terrestris have but a trace of group 1 and group 2 phytochemicals, and
contain virtually no Tribulus saponins. The Indian and Chinese producers typically
extract for furostanols, which has no
equivalent pharmacological effect to the Bulgarian Tribulus Terrestris.
Furostanols are not the active ingredient used to promote healthy sexual physiology
and hormone balance. As they exist in Indian and Chinese Tribulus Terrestris, they are not absorbed and utilized by the
body. However, all of the active Bulgarian Tribulus
Terrestris constituents are
readily absorbed and utilized in the body. This explains the radical difference
in the effects of Tribulus Terrestris from
