Ok. What effects do you notice from the VemoHerb tribulus and how do you dose it?
MediHerb Tribulus has numerous excipients that can be of concern. I can say that VemoHerb is top notch.I was just reading a PFS forum and one guy said that MediHerb Tribulus is the best based on his research because it contains the aerial parts. Haidut also just said in an interview he is working on a protodioscin supplement which would be awesome.
Which interview did Haidut mention a protodioscin supplement?
In this episode, Georgi shares results from studies that he himself has funded in defiance of the established medical research field.
He talks about cancer, the breakdown of trust in science, dental health, Michael Phelps, Methylene Blue, Testosterone, and more.

Thanks for listening
Recently, I was interested in finding out more on protodioscin molecule. I stumbled on a PDF describing the ingredients of a product called Protocin made by a company called Optigen (www.optigen.com.au). In the PDF, the very first sentence under Mechanism of Protodioscin it states "Protodioscin acts by stimulating the enzyme 5-alpha-reductase, which plays a role in the conversion of testosterone into dihydrotestosterone (Viktorof et al. 1994)". This is the very first time I have seen any research that actually showed/proved that protodioscin can activate this enzyme let alone any enzyme. If true this could be a another mechanism by which protodioscin act on the androgen system.
The interesting part is protodioscin has been researched as a remedy since the 1980's !! I can only imagine the amount of people that could benefit from this information if important research was made available internationally.
Unforuntally, I cannot find the reference paper anywhere. Maybe @haidut or anyone else could find the paper and see what Viktorof et al. found in their research. I will link the PDF below and the paper cited.
Viktorof I., Bozadjieva E., Protich M., et al. Pharmacological, pharmacokinetic, toxicological and clinical studies on protodioscin. IIMS Therapeutic Focus Vol 2 (1994).
I was just reading a PFS forum and one guy said that MediHerb Tribulus is the best based on his research because it contains the aerial parts. Haidut also just said in an interview he is working on a protodioscin supplement which would be awesome.
Have you tried that brand? It seems like tribestane, vemoherb tribulus and this brand are the most legit.
I think ingredients matter not really brand. Thanks for the link might try that next if I find benefit from tribulusDoes the brand really matter? Even if one brand has a higher %saponin content, could not one simply use a higher dosage of another product to achieve the same effect?
If the Protodioscin content is the only very active ingredient in tribulus supplements, then I don't see why this would not hold true. However, if there are other compounds which have a stimulatory effect, then I could see why you would want to limit your intake and maximize the 5-ar stimulating compound.
