Tribulus Terrestris is an herb commonly known as ‘Puncture Vine’ or Caltrop fruit, grown in various parts of the world and used medicinally for it virilizing effects. It is most popularly believed to improve sexual functioning, and is often used as an aphrodisiac. In various parts of the world, the puncture vine has been attributed other uses as well. In Europe, China and India, various peoples have used the tribulus to lower blood pressure and cholesterol, treat headache, nervous disorders and constipation, and stimulate the central nervous system. Modern science suggests that at least some of these uses may have a basis in fact. In one study tribulus showed improved blood flow to the genitals and improved sexual behavior. Scientists believe that it may work by relaxing smooth muscles and allowing greater blood flow. In addition, some clinical trials suggest that tribulus may lower both blood pressure and cholesterol and increase muscle mass, making it a popular supplement among athletes and bodybuilders. Used in Ayurveda, sometimes in combination with Mucuna or cowhage, plant and dried spiny fruit are esteemed as cooling, demulcent, diuretic, tonic and aphrodisiac.

Tribulus seems to work by increasing the levels of luteinizing hormone, which signals the body to start producing its own natural testosterone. This leads to increased libido and increased muscle mass, among other things. While tribulus has no known side effects in humans, there is some evidence that the plant can be toxic to livestock. The plant also can provoke photodermatitis.
