    EQ could be affected by improved circulation through means other than NO. I don't know if herbs actually raise T because I don't have labs to prove it, but some can give me symptoms of that like increased strength, harder muscles, deeper voice, acne, etc.

    Meh. I’ve spent some money on a order now. I did find their incredible range of products a bit suspect. The thing is,
    I know what a top quality cistanche extract does for me (libido enhancing and very horny inducing), which I have previously purchased from this company: Pine Pollen Powder, Extracts, and Tinctures | RAW Forest Foods

    Usually if a herbal company has real good stuff they specialise in just a few products. Like this one: Buy Reishi Extract He Shou Wu Cordyceps & More | Hyperion Herbs

    These are the main two I’ve had success with.

    So if badmonkeybotanicals ciatanche stacks up against the extract from rawforestfoods, I will know that I’m dealing with good stuff.

    Haidut mentioned he was having success with the tribalus from a few posts and that’s why I’ve purchased from them (along with some cistanche to play with).

    Oh well, I’ll give it a try at least.

    It will be interesting to see how these work out for you.

    My testosterone is fairly low, but the times it tested highest (mid range, upper 500s, as compared to high 200s), it was when I was using Tribulus. I can't pinpoint that it was just the TT, as I was doing other things, but TT was the only herb extract I was using, and the non-aromatisable DHEA metabolite that's talked about in this thread certainly gives a plausible explanation of how it could help raise T.

    Are you sure of this? I looked at the study and it says:

    “TTS was purchased from Hunan Sanwei Medical Technology Co. Ltd. (Hunan, China). The purity of Saponins was 80% .“

    As they refer to it as TT Saponins throughout the study, and refer to 80% purity, I am interpreting that as 80% saponin content... which would be on par with an extract...

    I have been taking the TT from Badmonkey’s and it 100% does have effects. I have also tried their maca extract now, and that also seems to have effects (which I have never gotten before from any previous maca products). In combination together (maca extract and TT) they are pushing libido higher then it has been for a while. The TT also provides a very unique and potent anti depressant effect for me, which I am enjoying very much. That could simply just be repressed androgens rising though, perhaps?

    Anyway, I thought I’d update as one or two people in this thread started to rubbish badmonkeybotanicals but, so far, the quality of their products seem to be very good indeed. In fact, having tried many of the top herbal products online (I’ve pretty much tried most things now), I would say that the extracts I’ve tried so far with badmonkeys are right up there with anything else around in terms of quality. I mean, you can just tell by the dense and fruity smell of these powders as you open the pouch. They smell like super concentrated extracts. This isn’t 40% chalk or something lol

    Thanks for the follow-up. That’s good information. As finances allow, I’ll have to try that brand.

    To @RisingSun and others who were interested ...


    Tribulus brand that I'm using is Boldanic. Product name Tribulyze.


    They have a few other interesting products which I cycle.


    Sorry for the delay, I was of the forum for a while. Busy at work lately...

    The BadMonkeysBotanicals website has been down for a couple of days now. Seems the website has disappeared without a trace? I was going to get some more of this tribulus. Anyone know what is going on? Their email customer service link has also gone dead. I have emailed them and I now get a bounced back ‘undelivered’ email.

    These guys have a terrible customer service reputation. I suppose things like this don’t exactly help.

    Does anyone know of any other online sources for high quality tribulus, with high potency active compounds? I was looking to buy quite soon.

    Wow, that’s a little abrupt of them. I guess the monkey indeed was bad. Hopefully they just forgot to pay their hosting bill or are moving servers. I see the domain name is good until 2021.

    Many products on Amazon report high percentage of both constituents in the Tribulus. I cannot vouch for any, and I wonder if being sourced from China can technically mean it was just processed there.

    I actually wrote to them and they said it was powder sold as plain dried herb, not an extract. The saponin contents was written on the bag but they did not test it. So, hard to say really. I am amazed a study like this would be done without verifying something as basic as how much saponins (presumably the active ingredients) are being given to the animals.

    Has anyone found a legit Tribulus product in Europe? I know Tribestan is good but it's quite expensive.
