What is Tribulus Terrestris?
Our dietary supplement is made from Tribulus terrestris, sometimes called Maltese Cross, which is a member of the Zygophyllaceae family. Often overlooked, this perennial plant is recognized by its long, creeping stems. It is said to originate from India but has been cultivated in other parts of the world for thousands of years. It grows primarily in hot, dry climates, including parts of China and several countries in Saharan Africa, but it’s also found in Europe in the Mediterranean rim, as well as in Western Asia.
