(Tribulus terrestris) are grown in Bulgaria. Tribestan - natural alternative to synthetic anabolic steroids without any side effects (proven by clinical trials).

Admission tribestana leads to increased muscle mass in active sports by activating the enzyme involved in energy metabolism. Also, according to some reports, Tribulus has the property to stimulate some functions associated with increasing levels of the body's endogenous testosterone (testosterone concentrations in healthy men who took Tribestan for five days increased three times) and luteinizing hormone (LH). Increased natural endogenous testosterone in the body helps to eliminate some of the symptoms of menopause and impotence in men. In women, Tribulus influences mainly on the level of the hormone and estradiol follikulosoderzhaschego Estradiol, the most important hormone  Estradiol, the most important hormone
 And the level of testosterone is not increased so much as men.

Nearly twenty years of application tribestana shown that it is completely non-toxic, does not violate the physiological mechanisms of hormonal regulation, it has no contraindications and side effects.

Composition tribestana

Recommended dosage: one or two tablets three times a day with meals.

  • Tribulus Terrestris (Tribulus Terrestris): 250 mg
  • Microcrystalline cellulose 193 mg
  • Cabosil (Aerosil): 100 mg
  • Polyplasdone XL (crospovidone): 40 mg
  • Polyvinylpyrrolidone 30 mg
  • Talc: 12 mg
  • Film: 10 mg

Tribestan and Tribulus Terrestris

For the preparation of less than 10 kg tribestana require more than 50 kg of Tribulus Terrestris. Therefore, if you are afraid to take Tribulus, but want to achieve the effect that ensures its active ingredient, you'll have to use Tribulus Terrestris 50-fold concentration. You can spend this analogy: Tribulus Terrestris - This orange and Tribulus - orange juice, ready-to-eat.


Action tribestana

Tribestan stimulates the production of luteinizing hormone, which in turn increases the production of testosterone by the gonads. Moreover, Tribulus does not give the body to understand that sex hormone levels higher than normal. Therein lies the secret of the effectiveness tribestana.

Normally elevated levels of testosterone production of luteinizing hormone stops to prevent further increase. But Tribestan blocks the body's response to elevated levels of testosterone and luteinizing hormone production continues.


Course admission tribestana

Tribestan must be taken every day for eight weeks. The recommended dose of three tablets per day (750 mg) for individuals weighing less than 90 kg, and six tablets a day (1500 mg) for humans weighing more than 90 kg.

With tribestana testosterone level can be increased by 40%.

Upon completion of the eight-week course should make a two-week break, because the body adapts to the drug. After stopping tribestana testosterone back to normal. Use of the drug according to the "eight weeks - a two-week break" can be continued indefinitely.
