    well, I would not recommend any kind of supp (beside a multi and whey protein) to a "young teen". Especially not supplements that are assumed to modify hormonal balance in the body.

    Most people under 25 won't get results from Tribulus. Your body is already pumping so much test that the Tribulus won't do much for you.

    Ever sit around in Math class, bored out of your mind and all of the sudden you spring a huge woody?

    If your answer was YES then you donít need to take tribulus. Not only will it probably do diddly squat for anyone under 24-25, but chances are that youíre a walking erection already.

    You donít need a test boost. Young teenagers do not need an exogenous testosterone boost either, not unless itís been clinically prescribed by a doctor whoís been paying close attention to your hormones and comes to this decision after multiple checkups. AFAIK, not too many teenagers end up with hormone replacement therapies unless itís painstakingly obvious in their day to day lives and is compromising their development.

    Look to something else for ergogenic performance. Teenagers generally shouldnít be toying with their hormones.

    Iím sure that most teens can sprout wood at a garden center, at school, work, wherever. Not the most scientific approach to this subject, but I donít think anyone really wants to argue with this eh lol

    No need to waste money on a herbal test booster really. I think the only time theyíre useful is when youíve used something illicit and actually need to pick up your natty production again. I think thatís the general consensus here, but I personally never understood the mechanics of testosterone and hormones when a friend sold me some Nitrix at 19.

    When I think back to when I took Nitrix I just lol @ myself. It did piss all, obviously, and tasted like old manís assÖ or what I imagine to taste like old manís ass (never tasted one and strong no homo).

    What if your answer is no? I'm 17, and get an erection to save my life haha. Would tribulus benefit me then?

    Also you say teens shouldnt be toying with their hormones, does tribulus affect the hormones? I thought it didnt directly affect them since its a natural test booster...

    yes it affects your hormones, it signals LH(Leutenizing Hormone) to raise your test levels, therefore affecting your hormone levels.

    so is tribulus not safe then? Earlier it was mentioned that its not recommended because a normal teen wouldnt have any benefit from it. I'm sure my test levels are low and I will have benefit, but my concern is if its safe.

    if your 18 or 19 you can greatly benefit from something that raises free test like activate or mass fx..dont let people fool you by saying your test levels are high enough..they can always get higher which will equal better results..its as simple as that

    does tribulus raise free test or increase the production of test?

    i dont think trib raises free test most likley it raises total test..activate and mass fx will raise free test by knockin out a protein called Sex-Hormone Binding Globulin

    Bingo.

    Honestly, I wouldnít say that itís dangerous in the sense that youíre going to be f***ed a few years down the road like if you took steroids. I doubt that trib will wreck your endocrine system or permanently screw up your hormones. But itís generally a good idea to not mess around with this kind of stuff because the benefits arenít fruitful enough. Youíll get far better results with different supplements that have been proven to work.

    But I completely disagree that more test = more gains. Itís not ďas simple as thatĒ, FS#33. There are a ton of variables that need to be taken into consideration and somehow I doubt that teens really need to go self-medicating if they really do have low test levels. I also think that just taking trib would be a ****ty answer to that nonetheless.

    brown i agree with what your saying but someone my age would greatly benefit from something that frees up bound test like activate or mass fx im not talking about trib..just because teens have high test doesnt mean it cant be higher..i myself have greatly benefited from activate and mass fx..not all teens have sky high test levels..everyone is different

    Hey browndustin, did you see my post in response to your post about getting erections? Thats the reason why I'm considering tribulus, because I believe my test is low because I dont get random erections ever, I dont even wake up with erections...ever.

    I appreciate your concerns, man. I could see myself getting concerned too because I don’t want ANYTHING to compromise my gains either. And FTR, I was never really one to get morning wood either. Don’t be too concerned about that. You could be overtraining if there are other symptoms that are contributing to your concerns. But rather than supplementing with something that’s only going to be temporary, get a blood test.

    All you need to do is visit your doctor and let him know about your concerns. You’re a healthy young man and you should know where you stand as far as regular check ups are concerned. Not many people, especially guys go in to do this. I never really do. But I’m going for another blood test soon and I’m also going to get my hormones tested too.

    I don’t know anything about the health care system in the United States though. Maybe your parents’ or guardians’ medical coverage will take care of your blood work. I’m completely unsure, and very spoiled to live in Canada. We can just call a drop-in clinic, talk to a doctor and get blood work within a few minutes.

    BTW, I promise that I’m not hung over because I didn’t go out last night, but I couldn’t fall asleep and my head’s not screwed on properly this morning. I apologize if I don’t make any sense right now.

    I know Tribulus affects your hormones, but its not a hormone. You're not being too clear. You said that teens dont need a test boost because test is sky high blah blah. You said its normal to get a woody to anything...well I dont, not even from stimulation. And if I do, its weak and goes away. So for a teen whose test isnt sky high, would tribulus be harmful. You never said it was harmful, you just said not needed.

    AFAIK, tribulus is not ďdangerousĒ. I stated that I got no sleep last night, bud. Youíre getting really paranoid so just go to a doctor because no one on here can help you any better. You need to get a few blood tests to determine whether you actually have a hormonal imbalance or deficit that needs attention. This is the only true way to gauge where your hormones are.

    I was only joking about the wood thingsÖ too. I should have added a ďno homoĒ disclaimer as well. Sincerest apologies.

    There is as yet not the slightest evidence that tribulus enhances free or total test. IN contrast, some studies found that it does nothing with test levels at all.

    even if it may increase LH, what does this mean?
    If you are being castrated, your LH-levels also go up.

    I don't want to bash tribulus, in fact some people report some effects from it, but the evidence-to-anecdote-ratio really does not look very good for TT.

    You were joking, but there is actually truth to that. I've done alot of research on herb supplementation. The only thing that has confused me is supplementing tribulus and yohimbe because some people its safe for one under 18(like 16-17), but some say its not...not even safe for ones below 20.

    yohimbe has the same dangers for all people who take it. I personally don't notice any side effects from it but that's because stimulants don't have a lot of effect on me. I just take them from time to time because they work even if you don't feel them, especially yohimbe and caffeine as they increase lipolysis.

    As for tribulus, studies have shown that it doesn't do anything for the strength training athlete in terms of size or strength. All it does is make it eaiser for you to get hard downstairs.
    "...that's the great virtue of the free market, of the private market. It enables people...who hate one another...who don't speak the same language...who would fight one another if they had the chance, to cooperate economically. We were able to deal with China when China was a communist state. Even though we thought that that was a terrible arrangement, we could still cooperate. And that's what markets enable people to do. They bring freedom with them."

    So what do you take yohimbe for? What does increasing lipolysis do?

    Iíve only tried yohimbe in a couple of products, but honestly wouldnít have been able to identify it out of the other stims. Itís banned in Canada too, I think. So thatíll be the last time I try yohimbe. I donít think Iím at much of a loss though.

    I think that arginine and other arginine salts have given me far more hardness downstairs than tribulus. When I was taking Controlled Labs White Blood my extremely shy ex-gf told me she likes it when I take it at night instead of pre-workout LOL!! I catch more wood with creatine too, strangely enoughÖ maybe all the extra water weights my member down or something. TMI!!! Iíll stop talking

    Do you lack libido? Do you display any other symptoms of low test? If so, I'd go to your doctor and get your test levels checked.

    Just playing connect the dots with symptoms on your own is a little ambiguous. A 5 minute Q&A with your doctor is going to do you a wealth of good, man. Seriously, just tell your mom that youíd like to know where you stand and get a physical. Go early in the morning and bring it up with your doc. If he thinks its fit, heíll have you come back for a couple of mornings to get consistent blood work. Done like dinner.

    Donít try to self-medicate with herbs because youíre just going to step into a world of disappointment and frustration troubleshooting on your own.

    If your answer was YES then you donít need to take tribulus. Not only will it probably do diddly squat for anyone under 24-25, but chances are that youíre a walking erection already.

    You donít need a test boost. Young teenagers do not need an exogenous testosterone boost either, not unless itís been clinically prescribed by a doctor whoís been paying close attention to your hormones and comes to this decision after multiple checkups. AFAIK, not too many teenagers end up with hormone replacement therapies unless itís painstakingly obvious in their day to day lives and is compromising their development.

    Look to something else for ergogenic performance. Teenagers generally shouldnít be toying with their hormones.

    Hmmm....Why is it always math class?
