Tribestan – Bulgarian Tribulus Terrestris
Developed in the 1970s and 1980s after 16 years of researchby many
scientists at the Chemical Pharmaceutical Research Institute in Sofia,
Bulgaria. The research expanded on the herb and herbal species, creating
a proprietary technology and methodologies to extract the valuable
components of a wild herb.
Further R&D efforts included incorporation in a tablet form of a substance
greatly affected by absorbed humidity. Tribestan was approved for
production and implemented in mainstream practice in 1985, and
on the market ever since. The product is practically non-toxic and
has no side effects – no changes of lifestyle required when accepting
Tribestan. Tribestan is natural and safe. Tribestan is based on a
proprietary extract from Sopharma and the active substance does not
contain herbal particles.
Tribestan is a completely natural non-hormonal herbal (phytochemical)
biostimulator derived from the plant Tribulus terrestris L., Bulgaricum,
which contains predominantly saponins of furostanol type (not less
than 45% in Tribestan), with prevailing quantity of protodioscin. Over
25 years of experience with natural herbal Tribestan administration
has seen no toxicity and negative effects to date.

Formulation and Active Substance Content
Tribestan is an original non-hormonal preparation of plant origin. Its active components are steroid
saponins of furostanol type isolated from the epigeous part of the Tribulus terrestris L. plant. The
preparation has been standardized on a base of the predominating compound, protodioscine, not less than 45%.
Dosage and Mode of Application
In men: The dosage and duration of treatment are being determined by the character and severity of the
condition. Most often, the dose is 1 – 2 tablets of 250 mg 3 times a day with meals. The duration of the
therapy in some cases should be at least 40 – 50 days.
It is known that a period of at least 80 days is needed between the spermatogonial division and the
formation of a mature spermatozoon. This imposes the necessary minimal therapeutic cycle to be
80 – 90 days.
In women: The treatment is strictly individually adjusted and depends upon the severity of the condition.
The usual dose is 1 – 2 tablets of 250 mg 3 times a day with meals. The combined administration of
Tribestan with ovulation stimulating preparations is recommended in some cases.
Use during Pregnancy or Lactation
The animal experiments showed that Tribestan possesses a very low toxicity. No evidence of any
carcinogenic, embryotoxic and/or teratogenic effect was found. However, the preparation must be
discontinued whenever a pregnancy is established.
Cautions and Specific Warnings
In treatment of women the transition from the effect-achieving to the maintenance dose must be
gradually realized. The abrupt reduction of the dose that achieved the effect results in a renewed triggering
of the whole complex of signs and symptoms.
Tribestan is usually prescribed in a dose of 2 tablets 3 times per day for 20 days. Thereafter, the dose
is being reduced by 1 tablet every 4 – 5 days to reach maintenance dose of 1 tablet 2 times a day
whereas the term of treatment depends upon the achieved effect.
Alternatively, Tribestan may also be administered in a dose of 2 tablets 2 times per day for a 30-day course
with a following dose reduction to 1 tablet 2 times daily every 4 – 5 days.
Tribestan may be administered in a dose of 1 tablet 3 times a day continuously for a longer period of time
(up to one year).
Use in bobybulding and recreational sport
Tribestan dosage varies considering the goals of the individual as it is used by endurance athletes,
bodybuilders, cyclists etc..
Typically a bodybuilding
Dosage requires 5 to 6 tablets per day for individuals over 180lbs (up to 8 tablets are took by hardcore
bodybuilders). Under 160lbs the individual can take 4 tablets per day It is recommended to take 2 tablets
at a time (this typically elevates testosterone more efficently for bodybuilders), for example 2 tablets in
the morning, 2 after training and 1 or 2 before bed.
Tribestan is active in the body for approximately 8 hours, so you need to take it 3 times per day to ensure
that your body continually releases luteinizing hormone, which results in testosterone production.
Testosterone levels can be elevated by as much as 40%.
It was established empirically (at Sopharma Pharmaceuticals) that cycling of Tribestan, 8 weeks on and
2 weeks off being the most commonly used cycle, enhances the effects of the product in some individuals.
Tribestan is took by many every day all year round with incredible results.
Like many bodybuilding products a typical cycle for maximum gains in lean mass is 8 weeks.
Gains of up to 1 stone in lean mass are reported with an 8 week cycle of Tribestan! Many of our customers
use this cycle time and time again with dramatic results!
Tribestan is also used by thousands of bodybuilders worldwide after a Steroid Cycle known as Post Cycle
Therapy (PCT). This rapidly elevates natural testosterone levels helping to retain muscle mass gained on
cycle. A 4 week cycle of Tribestan is commonly used.
Dramatic strength increase and mass
Dramatic improvements in performance are seen within the first 30 days, many customers have reported
back with a 30 kg increase in bench press and 1 stone of lean mass.
Permanent results achieved
The incredible results achieved are permanent. This is because ‘muscle memory’ is induced so that your
muscles permanently remain at their newly developed state. Ligaments and cartilage also grow and are
strengthened during supplementation.
By increasing your workout intensity and delivering more oxygen to your muscles, your workouts will
be more productive and with incredible muscular pumps, you will feel the veins popping out of your arms.
Ideally 4 to 6 tablets per day for endurance athletes. Dosage will be dependant on the amount of endurance
training. Customers of ours who are Olympic athletes use a typical 4 to 6 per day.
