Tribulus Terrestris

Alternative names: Goat's-head, Bindii, Puncture vine and others

Latin name: Tribulus terrestris

Occurrence: Europe, Asia, Africa, Australia

Tribulus is an annual herb with yellow flowers that thrive in European weather conditions.

In the west, it is mostly known as a natural aphrodisiac: something the ancient Greeks already knew about. It was used in Asia to treat the liver and kidneys, and in Japan to increase the body's defences. Tribulus is a versatile herb that should not be missing in your home medicine cabinet.


Sexual health
Energy and stamina


Tribulus terrestris contains high levels of phytosterols ("plant anabolic steroids"). It increases libido, improves the mood and self-esteem. It also supports muscle mass growth and muscle regeneration after a demanding exercise, so it is no wonder that this herbs is particularly popular among gym-goers and sports people. Men love it, but make no mistake - it will also benefit women, for it increases the production of the female hormone estrogen, which alleviates the negative consequences of menopause, assists fat-loss and promotes fertility.

Growing Tribulus

You can grow Tribulus Terrestris at home. Seeds are sown in spring (in pots) or later (even in autumn) directly into the flower bed. After the seeds have been left soaking for several days, germination occurs at a temperature of about 20°C. The plant likes a drier habitat or sandy soil, so be careful not to overwater them! It can also be grown in a greenhouse, which must be well-ventilated.

Harvesting and use of Tribulus

If planted in the spring, we harvest the whole plant and roots at the beginning of September. After washing the roots, the cut pieces of the plant are dried, preferably on white, non-woven fabric. The plant can also be trimmed if the twigs reach about 20 cm.

Tribulus is usually taken in the form of tea or a tincture. A far more convenient variant is a capsule or powder that is mixed in a glass of water, smoothies or juices.
