    Boosting endogenous Test on cycle

    Is it beneficial to take a tribulous type product while you are on Cycle to counter act the loss of your bodys production of test while you bombard it with exogeneous test in addition to your estrogen blockers like proviron ?

    leave the tibulus till PCT then add it to the clomid and nolva....people have had good results and recovery when adding it during PCT, with all the mix up your body is in during gear i dont think adding tribulus will boost your natural production that well.

    It is hard to find conclusive support for the length of time it takes Tribulus to become effective on LH levels. I have read anywhere from 3-30 days to see significant increases in libido for men. Nonetheless, studies in rats show that “(3) Increase in the levels of testosterone and its reduced form, dihydrotestosterone, both acting centrally and peripherally to promote sexual behavior, because androgenic hormones are known to restore libido”.

    In otherwords, Trib stimulates the central nervous system directly to increase the secretion of LH thus resulting in an increased level of testosterone (which is how we keep our balls plump).

    And from what I have read from a few different places, There are “no side effects have yet been reported in the medical literature regarding the use of tribulus terrestris. However, little is known about the long-term use of tribulus consumption in humans. As with most herbs, it is best to take breaks from use.”

    In the end, Trib is good to take during a cycle to make the transition into PCT go much smoother IMO.

    Heres one of the few thorough studies I could find on the effects Trib and the Libido.
