Ayurvedic Herbs Direct, Advanced Formula Tribulus, 100 ct
UPC Code: 802991131004
Tribulus terrestris has been used for centuries in ancient Greece, India and Africa to support fertility and rejuvenate the body. Tribulus has been used by some of the world's most elite athletes, but may be used by the recreational athlete as well. Ayurvedic Herbs Direct's Advanced Formula Tribulus has a guaranteed minimum 45% saponin content for optimal potency.
Tribulus terrestris is a perennial trailing plant that grows predominantly in India. It has been used for centuries in Ayurveda as an herbal tonic for sexual and urinary support.
Tribulus owes its health support effects to the specific group of glycosides belonging to the wider class of natural products called 'saponins'. Saponins constitute a vast group of glycosides which are ubiquitous in plants; their generic name derived from Latin word: sapo, saponis - which means soap - reflects detergent-like ability to form foamy solutions in water. Tribulus saponin content varies depending upon the source of saponin within the plant (e.g. fruit, leaves or steams). There are two types of Tribulus glycosides: spirostanols in fruits and furostanols, mainly found in leaves. The active phytochemical in T. terrestris plant is proven to be saponin of furostanol type called protodioscin.
Tribulus terrestris grown on different soils does not consistently produce the same levels of saponins. The protodioscin content of T. terrestris varies greatly depending on the geographic region in which it is grown. Analysis of products selected from the US market found lower levels of protodioscin in the majority of samples. It was found that the level of protodioscin changes substantially with the plant part (leaf, stem or fruit) and origin (Bulgaria, India or China) of the Tribulus. All samples from Bulgaria contained a rather high percentage of protodioscin, with most of it in the leaves (1.34%), significantly less in the stems (0.27%) and fruits (0.24%). The phytochemistry of Chinese and Indian Tribulus differed considerably from that of Bulgarian origin. Samples from India and China showed totally different profiles in saponin content with protodioscin as only a minor compound: 0.063% in fruit from China and 0.024% in stem from India (leaf samples were not available). Consequently, Chinese and Indian T.terrestris does not have the same pharmacological and physiological functions as Bulgarian Tribulus.
Ayurvedic Herbs Direct uses Tribulus powder extract manufactured from genuine Bulgarian leaves containing not only standardized, high protodioscin level, but all saponins characteristic to the plant.
