Tribulus terrestris or Caltrop is an annual plant with yellow flowers that is found widely in tropical climates around the world. The traditional medical herb is purported to be beneficial for a wide variety of health conditions, such as for reducing high levels of blood sugar and cholesterol, sexual disorders, benign prostatic hyperplasia, infertility, and respiratory impairment. The plant is probably best known for naturally improving libido and stamina, which is due to the high levels of the saponin compound protodioscin. Another effect is to stimulate the body’s natural T-levels, which helps in building muscle and increasing performance.
