Tribulus terrestris is a common bodybuilding supplement, but is traditionally a herb commonly used in Chinese medicine. We discuss this compound in regards to tribulus information, facts and research.
The Tribulus Terrestris that we have for sale does contain protodioscin, as all tribulus terrestris products will in varying degrees. The density of this phytochemical will vary depending upon the location from which it is sourced.
According to one particular study (below), the most abundant source of protodioscin is found from Bulgarian leaves. This is where the Now Foods Tribulus that we sell sources their raw materials from, and manufactures the supplement in the USA.
