2. Tribulus Terrestris

Trib has been used for centuries in traditional medicine in both China and India. Recent studies have shown this herb to boost testosterone in animal studies according to a study published in the journal Phytomedicine in 2008.

Another side effect is it can increase sexual desire, which is often lacking in people with low testosterone levels. Some sources say it can also help with erectile dysfunction and help with sports performance.

This herb is often popular with body builders and those that take part in intense workouts as according to some sources, it can help to improve recovery time, boost protein synthesis, increase energy, improve nitrogen balance and increase workout intensity.

The part of the trib herb that is considered to be the factor responsible for the biological activity is the steroidal saponins contained in this plant, which is where the testosterone producing aspects are meant to come from.
