Organic Puncturevine Powder (Tribulus Terrestris)
Tribulus Terrestris, also known as goat-head weed, bindii, and puncture vine, is a Mediterranean plant that is also found in India and Africa. Historically, almost all of the herb's components - fruits, leaves, and roots – have been used to cure a broad range of diseases and health issues, from sexual dysfunction to kidney stones and beyond.
In Ayurveda, it is often used as an aphrodisiac and natural diuretic. It is supposed to heal kidney stones, heart disease, cough, breathing issues, and urinary problems. It is also thought to improve athletic performance, sexual desire, fertility, and hypertrophy.
Tribulus Terrestris has been linked to improved blood sugar levels, improved heart health, reduced pain and inflammation, and increased libido. It is also thought to have anti-cancer qualities and may function as a natural diuretic in the body.
Start with a dosage of 250-500mg every other day, for one week, and then slowly reach the recommended dosage, which is 250-500mg three times a day for up to 8 weeks. Repeat the process after taking a break for 2 weeks.
Mix into drinks, hot beverages such as lattes and hot chocolate, smoothies, hot or cold cereals, granola, overnight oats, bars, chia seed pudding, or even baked products (although cooking it at high temperatures may destroy some of the phytonutrients).
◉ Should be stored in airtight glass containers -in a cool, dark, and dry area- to preserve its flavor and properties.
