I'm new to the tribulus thing, but I started a cycle about 4 weeks ago. I saw an article in (okay throw the rotten fruit now) FLEX magazine on testosterone boosters. One thing they did say that made a lot of sense was the concern over elevated levels of estrogen. It said (and I did a little research to verify) that when you boost test levels, your pituitary wants to balance it off with elevated estrogen. They recommended 6-OXO to help supress estrogen levels and prevent the highly-unwanted side effects. I know I like shopping at Victoria's Secret, but not for me. Anyone got any suggestions on products standardized to 40 or 45% protodioscin? Most of the stuff, including the product I'm using now is 20%. Finding it hard to find anything higher.
Thanks

Default brands and quality

I have read a lot about Trib and I have taken it about six differant times. I think the key is quality. I have taken sevaral brands and only one stacks up to the claims. I am 32 and I love the stuff but was pissed off when I tried a differnat brand and wasted money. Trying to save a buck is not the best way to go when buying Trib. There are so many people that try and market it but only a few that are worth it.

What brand do you like? I'm with you on wasting money on the 3-page ad brands that don't stack up. Would really like to know what brands/doses anyone is using and general opinions on the quality.
Thanks

Default Brand

The brand I like best Sopharma Bulgarian Tribestan. The funny thing is when you read the ten page adds in the mucle mags they all compair thier tribulus to bulgarian. Twin labs was ok but I got more out of the Sopharma Tribestan. It cost about $23-$30 for a box of sixty tabs. You need to take two tabs three times daily. It is a little expensive for a thirty day supply (about $75). But it is worth it.

Talking Tribulus brand...

4EverFit is the best brand I've bought yet. The dosage is high (500mg per capsule). A lot of Trib capules contain half of that or less. The quality of the product seems to be the best I've used. It only takes a couple of days before you start sporting wood left and right, and developing some acne. I don't know that I can say it actually helped my lifts, because I take so many other supplements, it's hard to tell the difference, but I do know it's raised my aggressiveness level a little bit, and it's definately raised my testosterone level a little. I've taken steroids before, and if you are thinking it's going to be equal to that, you'd be......well.....wrong.

I'll definately keep using Trib, but I'm going to cycle it, because I prefer to have smaller tits than my wife. (That or I'll have to buy her implants so they stay bigger than mine when I start sporting gynocomestia).

The most recent stuff i've used is FUZE, by primaforce. And it is by far the most potent so far. It is cheap (20 beans for a bottle), at 4 caps ed it lasts 22 days. I'm stacking it with rebound xt right now for added test, and i havent had a day in the gym where my reps or wieghts havent gone up.

as far as the estrogen issues go, i can say there is very little issue with trib. it wont hurt to add a blocker (6-oxo, rebound xt) but it certrainly isnt a must. unless your prone to gyno issues.

I will be testing blue rhino by controled labs starting next week. Its a trib, avena, long jack supp. I will be keeping a log here and at bn.

I have not carefully read through every post on this thread. I'll just say this:

1. There's no scientific evidence that trib will raise test levels beyond normal levels.
2. You won't find any studies that validate it's claim to help you build more muscle.
