Puncture Vine Plant
The Tribulus Terrestris plant itself is a small, leafy annual herb called puncture vine, caltrop, or goat’s head and is found throughout Europe, Asia, Africa, and the Middle East. It grows flat along the ground from a simple, woody taproot and produces fruit covered with sharp, rigid spines. It is thought to be called “puncture vine” because the spines are sharp enough to pierce bicycle types and penetrate shoe soles.
What does Tribulus do to the body?
Although more research is required to prove Tribulus Terrestris powder’s ability to improve body composition, many active and exercise people frequently take Tribulus Terrestris extract to increase muscle density and decrease fat.
Although Tribulus Terrestris powder can be taken continuously, it is often taken in cycles, especially if used to improve body composition. Here, active individuals will take Tribulus Terrestris powder during their active workout phase to build muscle mass. Then, during the rest phase, they will avoid taking Tribulus Terrestris. The cyclical nature of consumption is thought to have the best results.
