I run 4 gram Ed and 6 g at pct.Others just use it at pct and it works for them as well.For the ppl that say don't take it during pct,well they are just not informed,that's all.

I posted these bits, cuts, and thoughts in another thread. Others are welcome to object because i am not 100% sure on my conclusions, but I am more well informed than many.
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). Not sure if the effect is when there are out side hormones in our system however.
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.”
Also, trib wont do much to raise natural test levels if your test levels are already normal; however, studies have shown that it will raise exongenous test levels when they are below normal.
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.

EDIT: I usually recommend 4g througout and 7g during bridge and PCT.
