Testosterone is vital because it plays many key roles in our bodies including building muscle size and strength. Athletes are using Tribulus terrestris to help ensure that their levels of this natural hormone are at normal levels at all times. This can thus ensure that testosterone levels are maintained through a natural platform without the use of dangerous drugs like steroids. Tribulus is Nature's master hormone regulator for men and women and has been used for centuries to treat a wide variety of health problems including loss of libido (sex drive), impotence, infertility, edema, liver, kidney and heart problems, PMS, menopause, and more. Tribulus is a safe, non-hormonal food supplement prepared from the herb, Tribulus terrestris.
