Tribulus terrestris, also known as the puncture vine, grows naturally in many places throughout the world, including North and South America, Africa, Asia, Australia and the Middle East. In many places, it is considered a pest weed that grows in vacant lots and on roadsides, but the indigenous populations have often had a different use for the noxious weed. Tribulus fruits consist of several single-seeded nutlets, each of which bears two or three spikes sharp enough to puncture bicycle tires. In southern Africa these spikes have been sometimes coated with the sap of Acokanthera venenata (bushman's poison, a cardiotoxin) and used to commit homicide. Tribulus is most popularly believed to improve sexual functioning, and is often used as an aphrodisiac. In various parts of the world, the puncture vine has been attributed other uses as well. In Europe, China and India, various peoples have used tribulus to lower blood pressure and cholesterol, treat headache, nervous disorders and constipation, and stimulate the central nervous system. Modern science suggests that at least some of these uses may have a basis in fact. In one study tribulus has been linked to improved blood flow to the genitals and improved sexual behavior. Scientists believe that it may work by relaxing smooth muscles and allowing greater blood flow. In addition, some clinical trials suggest that tribulus may lower both blood pressure and cholesterol and increase muscle mass, making it a popular supplement among athletes and bodybuilders.

Tribulus seems to work by increasing the levels of luteinizing hormone, which signals the body to start producing its own natural testosterone. This leads to increased libido and increased muscle mass, among other things. A recent study has also shown tribulus to be an ovarian stimulant with the ability to normalize ovulation and thus improve chances for conception.

Typical preparations include Tea, extract, and encapsulated powder. Not for persons with stomach inflammation, ulcers, serious digestion or liver disorders. May cause gastro-intestinal upset.
