Tribulus Enhances Lutenizing Hormone (LH) Production Tribulus Terrestris has been shown in studies to enhance Lutenizing Hormone (LH) production by as much 186% and raise testosterone levels as much as 40%. Saponinis the active ingredient in Tribulus that is responsible the beneficial effects. Saponin works by stimulating the body’s production of LH (or pre-testosterone), which in turn promotes the production of testosterone, the key male hormone responsible for helping to add lean body mass, increase metabolism and keep libido or sex drive levels high.*
Studies Show DHEA Increases Tribulus Effects Studies show that it works very well when stacked with DHEA. It increased testosterone levels in a different way than either DHEA or andro does. Instead of being a testosterone precursor, it leads to the production of the Luteinizing Hormone (LH). When LH levels are increased, the natural production of testosterone also increases. LH is a hormone that also deals with sex drive. Now one can understand why it has been used to increase fertility and help with impotence. Laboratory animal studies found that Tribulus Terrestris increased sperm count as well as motility levels after taking it for 30 days.
