Tribulus Terrestris

Here’s a supplement that I don’t recommend – Tribulus Terrestris. Tribulus has been long thought to increase testosterone which would, in theory, improve gains. However, several human studies have shown that not to be the case – Tribulus has no effect on testosterone or gains. Save your money and buy more food. Food will have more positive effects on gains than tribulus ever will!
