What is the maximum dose of tribulus terrestris one can take on daily basis? Thanks so much.

It depends...: This depends on what form as tribulus comes as standardized extracts of various strengths. The whole root powder is taken in doses of up to 6 grams a day while extracts are taken in doses up to 750 mg/day. As for maximum safe dose no one really knows as this has not been researched, but some recommend taking breaks every few weeks. See http://tinyurl. Com/zbab2jc and http://tinyurl.

What is the difference between tribulus and testofen? What's the pros and cons of using them?

What is the difference between tribulus and testofen? What's the pros and cons of using them?

Unknown: Testofen is advertised as a fenugreek extract. Tribulus is sold as the tribulus terrestris plant. Some sellers are claiming they are testosterone enhancers.

Especially with plant materials, each batch, and definitely each company's product, can be hugely different in what it contains. ...Read more

Is it safe to take tribulus along with creatine?

Is it safe to take tribulus along with creatine?

Shouldn't be a prob.: As long as you take them with enough water there shouldn't be a problem. Unfortunately neither of these have great evidence to support their use.
