In animal studies Tribulus Terrestris has demonstrated its ability to increase testosterone levels by as much as 50%. This was achieved by the mechanism of the protodioscin, which increases the luteinizing hormone (LH), the hormone that signals the body to produce testosterone. There is ongoing debate in the scientific community as to whether or not Tribulus can increase human testosterone levels above the normal range, but it is generally agreed upon that it can help restore and balance normal testosterone levels in men who suffer from suboptimal levels.
