Tribulus terrestris (also known as Puncturevine, Goat-head, Cat's Head or Devil's Weed) is a perennial trailing plant which grows predominantly in India and Africa. It's mentioned in ancient Indian Ayurvedic medical texts as a diuretic or aphrodisiac for men, and has also been used for centuries in ancient Greece and in Africa to enhance vitality and virility. Tribulus has been used by body builders because many believe it raises natural testosterone levels (if used in the right dosage), which promotes increased muscle mass or strength.
Recent research indicates Tribulus can support the body's free radical defense systems and initial studies suggest it may indeed help promote healthy endocrine function and male reproductive health, and support urinary health. The herb has been standardized in these capsules to contain a minimum of 45% Saponins to deliver consistent and reliable results.

400 mg of Tribulus terrestris (Aerial Parts and Fruit) (Standardized Extract) (min. 45% Saponins) .
