Tribulus Terrestris is truly one of those herbs that one would choose if given only one choice for life from the entire kingdom of herbs.  If that is the case, why is it not more widely used in the Western world? One contributing factor is that Tribulus has primarily been marketed to men and more specifically, to men who are bodybuilders or need to raise their testosterone. However, the clinical studies cited below demonstrate that Tribulus has properties which include:

Diuretic,

Aphrodisiac (for men and women),

Promoting nitric oxide (NO) release,

Raising serum testosterone,

Chelating heavy metals,

Antiurolithic activity (helping to prevent stone formation),

Contains Quercetin (a potent anti-allergy component),

Increasing immunity,

Antidiabetic activity by lowering blood glucose and lipid levels,

Exerting hypolipidemic activity (lowering cholesterol, triglycerides and LDL (’bad’ cholesterol) while raising HDL (good cholesterol),

Decreasing endothiliar cellular surface damage (protects the cells lining the inside of blood and lymph vessels).

Cardiac disorder support, including: coronary disease, myocardial infarction, cerebral arteriosclerosis, and the aftermath of cerebral thrombosis, protecting myocardium against ischemia reperfusion injury, increasing SOD (superoxide dismutase) activity, thrombosis, treatment of hypertension, ACE inhibitory effects,

CNS (central nervous system) by antidepressant and anxiolytic activity by aiding increase of dopamine levels in the brain

Liver protective (hepaprotective) against acetaminophen overdose

Antinflammatory activity

Analgesic activity

Antispasmodic

Anti Cancer (Chemopreventive) – significant protection when given prior to radiation by preventing glutathione depletion. The saponins in Tribulus also suppressed proliferation and induced apoptosis.

Antibacterial action against Enterococcus faecalis, Staphylococcus aureus, Escherichia coli and Pseudomonas, aerugenosa

Anticariogenic (prevention of dental caries) activity against Streptococcus mutans, the bacteria responsible for cavities
