Taking Triblus and Effecting Natural Testosterone Production

Taking Triblus and Effecting Natural Testosterone Production

Hello,

Lately I’ve been suffering from low levels of testosterone and I was wondering if the cause of this was me taking tribulus for about 3 months straight without cycling, yea I know I should’ve researched it more before I took it

Now I’m worried I’ve stopped my bodies natural testosterone production if so is there any way to kick start the bodies natural testosterone production or is it all in my head:S

I’m not sure if anything is needed to restart my natural production or whether or not my body can tell I’ve stopped taking tribulus and my body can tell it needs to do it naturally now

Hey, Mr M;
I’m in my mid -50’s, and suffer from something called syndrome X, whose symptoms includes insulin resistance, high cholesterol, and also low testosterone. I’ve been treated by two doctors, both pretty much into alternative medicine, and the one I use now, (who is very good), took me off androgel, which is real Testosterone in a gel , and put me on Tribulus; a brand called Medi-herb which I believe is made in Australia from Bulgarian Tribulus. It’s a 4.5:1 extract equal to 2.79 grams of herb, taken 1 per day, and it definitely increases my Testosterone production. If I run out for a while or am feeling low on funds-it costs nearly a US dollar a day for the pills-My body keeps up the production for a few weeks but I notice a decrease in morning wood after a while.

Also I am back in the gym since this guy cleared out my arteries, and I find that the more exercise I add in, the better everything works, and the harder the blood pumps when required.

If you are in your 20’s and taking the tribulus to boost your testosterone past your normal levels, then maybe it would be wise to cycle your use so the body does not cut back it’s natural production. I’m in the opposite situation where the body has already cut back due to age or illness, and the extra boost from the tribulus helps me get back the strength and endurance to get back to serious workouts. I also notice that if I increase the dose to 2 or 3 a day in hopes of faster growth or a hot date, I can actually get a case of ‘roid rage where my temper is very short and I’m generally very grumpy, even more so than usual according to my family. So there is a limit for everyone.

As you can see, it really depends on your age, your own natural health and levels of production, and the amount of active herb you are getting into your system. As with anything we add to our bodies, it never hurts to back off for awhile and note the changes, for better worse. Hope this info is some help.

I don’t believe tribulus it’s a testosterone precursor, it makes your body produce more, it’s not by itself testosterone. I didn’t do much research on this one. Any way I took some tribulus myself and didn’t notice any change in anything.

Thanks for the info bigdave and foxmarrine ,

I’m pretty convinced now that tribulus is not a testosterone precursor:)

Tribulus doesnt make test in your body, so dont worry. Eat well, sleep well and maintain a healthy lifestyle. If this is bothering you too much visit a doctor.


Walk slowly but never backwards.

If you want an actual precursor to testosterone then take DHEA. I too struggle with a sort of Syndrome X. I’ve inherited a thyroid problem from my mother and both sides of the family deal with heart disease.. So the result for me is: High cholesterol and triglycerides, hypothyroidism and low testosterone. So far, my insulin has been ok.

I’m currently on Testim which is like androgel but newer. If I wasn’t going to take actual T, then DHEA in higher quantities would be my choice for a supplement. Another route is pregnenolone, which is a mother hormone, which is converted to DHEA which is converted to Testosterone. However, I don’t recommend pregnenolone unless you’re exhibiting other symptoms of low pregnenolone production.
