VitaminShoppe Tribulus Terrestris Ingredients
The primary testosterone boosting ingredient we want to focus on is Tribulus Terrestris.
Tribulus is an herb, but it varies from species to species. Just like how wines produced from the same species of grape but grown in different parts of the world will differ, perhaps significantly, all Tribulus herbs/products can’t be assumed to be identical.
In this case, protodioscin concentration – which basically tells you how powerful the Tribulus may be – depends on where in the world it was harvested, and what part of the plant was used. The highest concentrations tend to come from Turkey, Macedonia and Bulgaria. Materials from India, China and Vietnam have reported significantly lower concentrations.
How Much Protodioscin Do You Need?
If Tribulus raises natural testosterone levels, its effects appear to be dose-specific. In other words, the delivery of active protodioscin seems to be effective if you take the right amount. Too little and it doesn’t appear to work. The sweet spot seems to be consuming enough Tribulus so you get at least 4 milligrams of protodioscin per pound of bodyweight per day. The issue is every supplement company, like the makers of TestronSX know that Tribulus is the most important compound in testosterone boosters. It’s not an issue if company’s use the correct dosage. Unfortunately most companies just use a token amount of Tribulus to keep costs down and just use other “filler” ingredients. So, how much protodioscins does VitaminShoppe Tribulus Terrestris really contain?
Will VitaminShoppe Tribulus Terrestris Really Boost Testosterone?
When we got the lab reports back for TestronSX we were shocked! Our official labs reports show that VitaminShoppe Tribulus Terrestris only contains 3.582mg of protodioscin! Incredible! Take a look at the lab report:
Even with all of the other ingredients, VitaminShoppe Tribulus Terrestris is a pretty weak testosterone booster.
