Tribulus terrestris - The power extract from the plant
Tribulus terrestris is a plant that is found mainly in tropical and subtropical countries of Asia, Africa and southern Europe. For the sport, especially for weight training, the Tribulus terrestris extract is of particular interest. It contains saponins, which are a steroid-like compound. Natural food sources for saponins are mainly legumes such as beans, lentils, peanuts, soybeans and peas. Tribulus terrestris aims to initiate a different mechanism than, for example, the synthetically produced testosterone. The Tribulus active ingredient stimulates the pituitary luteinizing hormone. This hormone in turn stimulates the body's own testosterone production. Ideally, Tribulus thus ensures a normalization of the testosterone level. Testosterone provides the most potent anabolic hormone in the body and is essential for building muscle. So it can lead to increased muscle growth, strength gains and better recovery. It also helps to dehydrate, which is particularly interesting for athletes in the diet, as it helps to achieve a higher definition of muscle. But also in endurance training Tribulus Terrestris finds its use to support endurance athletes in achieving their training goals. In weight training Tribulus Terrestris has been used for decades. It was well known that in the 1980s, Bulgarian weightlifters used Tribulus and found significant increases in power in a short time. Since then Tribulus has been an essential part of sports nutrition. Many athletes, especially bodybuilders, swear by the positive effect that Tribulus Terrestris has on their training. This makes it impossible to imagine the sport. For athletes, not only the effects on the athletic performance are interesting, it can also help to promote regeneration and increase weight, making it an ideal supplement in the mass phase.
One tablet of the IronMaxx TT Ultra Strong contains 1600 milligrams of Tribulus Terrestris, making it one of the highest concentrations in the world. The best time to take Tribulus Terrestris is before a hard workout.
