Tribulus is a genus of plants found in many warm regions. The best-known member is T. Terrestris (puncture vine), a widespread weed and said to raise natural testosterone levels if taken as a supplement. 

It has a long history of use in traditional Chinese medicine and Indian Ayurvedic practice. Tribulus species are perennial, but some grow as annuals in colder climates. The leaves are opposite and compound. The active ingredients in Tribulus Terrestris include the so-called saponins, which are responsible for the effect.

Tribulus is a crucial ingredient for our product Male Factor 1, which contains > 40% saponins.
