Why Fenugreek and Tribulus Don’t Boost Testosterone

September 01, 2017

Why Fenugreek and Tribulus Don’t Boost Testosterone

If you’re in the market to boost your lean muscle mass, you may be looking at one of the many different testosterone boosters out there. They claim to help you pack on pounds of lean muscle mass, sometimes in a very short period.

What’s more, is that they state they are a natural solution and essentially work with the body to help boost your testosterone levels. This is in contrast to adding synthetic testosterone to your body, which is never recommended.

But do these products really work? You’ll commonly see a few different ingredients listed on the label, and it’s important to do your research before buying. Many, sadly, don’t produce the results they claim and could have you burning your hard-earned money without much to show for it.

Let’s look at three of these ingredients in particular.

2 Ingredients That DON’T Boost Testosterone

1. Fenugreek

The first ingredient to consider is fenugreek, which is a herbal ingredient often in test boosters and ironically enough, is also used to help women produce more breast milk when breastfeeding.

So what does the science say about this? Current research suggests that supplementing with fenugreek does very little to actually help increase the anabolic hormones in the body.

On top of that, it also has very little influence on any other hormones, including insulin, cortisol, or leptin, according to the International Journal of Exercise Science.

For this reason, you may want to pass on fenugreek. The main results you’ll get from including fenugreek in your day is perhaps a slight boost to your libido levels.

2. Tribulus

Finally, chances are you’ve heard of Tribulus. Popular in many of the major test boosters out there, Tribulus is thought to help boost your strength and pack on the muscle.

The science? It says differently.

Research published in the Journal of Ethnopharmacology noted that men who supplemented with this herb for four weeks noted no increase in testosterone, androstenedione, or luteinizing hormone levels proving it has very little effect on muscle development or physical performance.

Where Tribulus does appear to be helpful is with the improvement of erectile dysfunction in those who are suffering, as research published in the Phytomedicine Journal noted. Tribulus was able to increase testosterone and DHT in castrated rats and may help with mild to moderate cases of ED.

So all in all, don’t be too quick to think that all these supplements will help you get a leg up on your muscle building progress.

Chances are they won’t do much more than boost your libido.

Unlike these “testosterone boosting” ingredients, and the supplements in the market that make endless claims, Primasurge is a scientifically-formulated, no proprietary blend testosterone booster that uses proven ingredients in effective dosages, such as Primavie® Shilajit.

You won’t find the above, or any other useless ingredients in Primasurge. If you give it a try, leave a comment below and let us know what you think!
