Can tribulus terrestris stunt bone growth? Please help

A Thorn In My Side: No evidence either way. Not much evidence for anything. Someone else asked a question implying they wanted to know if it improved 'boner' growth or function. Maybe, if you area rabbit or a rat, but not a human. And even in the rats the studies sucked. Lots of herbal or other plant-based substances come in and out of fashion.

Can tribulus terrestris stunt bone growth? Please help!

No: Tribulus terrestris may naturally increase testosterone levels within normal limits.

Can gynecomastia be cured by some natural sources like tribulus terrestris, turmeric, flaxseeds with some exercises or not?

Can gynecomastia be cured by some natural sources like tribulus terrestris, turmeric, flaxseeds with some exercises or not?

Find out why: You need to know why you have gynecomastia. I do not think that tumeric, flaxseed can get rid of gynecomastia. If that is caused by medication, you should then stop taking the medication. Exercise on the upper body may help you develop /build up more pectoralis muscles on the chest and perhaps can make the gynecomastia less noticeable -but will not make it go away. Discuss with your MD further. ...Read more

No: Don't listen to nonsense you see on the internet. All men have low amounts of estrogen in addition to high amounts of testosterone, just like women have high levels of estrogn and low amounts of testosterone.
