This supplement may help increase testosterone levels by raising blood levels of LH (a hormone produced by the pituitary gland). A higher testosterone level has been clinically linked to muscle growth, increased strength, and greater mental focus. More T = more muscle.
Nitro Tribulus™ is a 100% all-natural way to boost your testosterone level.
This powerful nutrient is derived from punture vine and Nitro Tribulus™ contains the more potent Bulgarian Tribulus Terrestris, which has been shown to be 35% more active in the human body versus other sources of Tribulus.
Tribulus has been shown to help increase testosterone levels indirectly by raising blood levels of Luteinizing hormone (LH). LH is a hormone produced by the pituitary gland and plays a role in regulating natural testosterone production.

Warning: Warning: Pro-hormones are not for use by children, teenagers, pregnant women, or nursing women. Do not use this product if you have breast, uterine, ovarian, or prostate problems. If you are under medical supervision, consult with your physician before taking product. Too much testosterone before being fully grown could cause premature closure of the growth plates that control the growth of the body's long bones. This could stunt growth. Do not take pro-hormones until you have reached your full growth potential.

Increase the intensity of your workout (fewer reps per set, with heavier weight in each set). If you do 3 sets of 10 reps, you are sacrificing intensity for conformity. Change that silly pattern before supplementing. You should find each set harder to do than the last, so it will necessarily consist of either fewer reps or less weight. If each set is the same, you are doing something wrong. Think about the logic, here. Then, implement the change and watch your results improve.
Scientific support for tribulus
The Tribulus Terrestris plant has a long history of uses. People from around the world have used the Tribulus Terrestris plant to boost moods, promote overall health, support healthy libido function and increase muscle tone. Because of the plant’s reputed benefits, athletes have used Tribulus Terrestris extract dietary supplements to boost energy levels, promote healthy hormone function, enhance muscle tone and support athletic training.
Although it’s unclear how Tribulus Terrestris extract exerts its effects, scientific research has suggested several possible mechanisms of action. Tribulus Terrestris contains steroidal saponins, alkaloids and flavanoids. These active ingredients are believed to be responsible for its effects on hormone, libido, and body composition.
Clinical research has shown that Tribulus Terrestris may support healthy libido function in humans, and that it may also support healthy blood pressure and healthy cholesterol profiles.
Some European studies suggest that tribulus extract can increase testosterone levels 30-50% above baseline levels – but still well within the normal, “natural” range.
A study done with healthy individuals taking 750mg of tribulus per day showed a 72% LH increase and a 41% increase in testosterone.
In a study conducted with 20 males and females, 75% of the participants had increased endurance, 80% had increased libido and sexual performance and 95% of the females reported no PMS symptoms.
A study conducted with 200 males suffering from impotence showed an increase in LH and testosterone levels after supplementing Tribulus. The study also found an increase in sperm production.
The science of hormones
Our hormones are the “overlords” of our body’s health. They are the fuel for youth. They control nearly everything, including fighting infection, healing injury, building muscle mass, and managing stress. Furthermore, they help you sleep, adjust what your body burns as fuel for energy, and maintain your sex drive.
Unfortunately, many of these hormones diminish as we age, and the reduction of these hormones is believed to be responsible for the aging process. Scientists believe the conductor in your body’s hormone orchestra is your pituitary gland (a small organ at the base of your brain) and its related control center, the hypothalamus.
These master glands continuously optimize your mental and physical performance by sending hormonal messengers to other glands in your body, giving them precise directions to secrete the appropriate hormones in the appropriate amounts.
How your body produces testosterone
The production of testosterone is driven through this same process. Testosterone is a potent “anabolic” steroid in the body, essential for building lean muscle mass and sustaining sexual stamina. In adult males about 95% of testosterone is producedin the testicles. The body’s feedback system works as follows:
Hypothalamus monitors your free (unbound and usable for growth) testosterone levels.
When your testosterone level drops, it sends bursts of a hormone signal called GnRH to your pituitary.
Your pituitary then secretes Luteinizing Hormone (LH) about every hour. LH signals your testicles to produce testosterone.
DHEA is converted to andro and then converted to testosterone.
To produce testosterone, your body generates the LH signal to trigger production. Once this signal is generated, your body transforms metabolic precursors or pro-hormones into the bioactive hormone testosterone.
Testosterone peaks around 20 years of age in males at a blood level of approximately 800-1200 ng/dl. The level of free testosterone typically declines in men at an average rate of 1.2% per year after that to as little as 200 ng/dl by age 40. Boosting your natural testosterone levels can give you more energy and provide you with tremendously aggressive workout intensity so you can achieve accelerated muscle growth. The elevated testosterone level that Nitro Test II helps provide will also help you in the bedroom like an all-natural Viagra.
Nitro Test II is formulated to help effectively maximize testosterone levels by helping your body naturally boost testosterone levels for greater power, endurance, intensity, and libido.
It contains a pro-testosterone complex along with a stack of supportive exotic herbs that synergistically enhance free testosterone production, protect the prostate, and enhance sexual stamina and desire.
Pro Testosterone Complex
Tribulus Terrestris (puncture vine) has been proven to raise testosterone production in men by increasing LH secretion. Tribulus is a rich source of potent phytochemicals called steroidal saponins which are believed to cause the increase in natural LH output. It has a synergistic effect when combined with DHEA because it is the base hormone needed to produce testosterone.
Tribulus, in essence, supercharges the body’s ability to generate testosterone. European studies suggest that tribulus extract can increase testosterone levels 30-50% above baseline levels.
DHEA (dehydroepiandrosterone) is the precursor for all other hormones in the body, including testosterone. It is produced from cholesterol. DHEA helps improve hormone levels and maintain hormone balance. Several studies have proven this, showing that regular supplementation of DHEA at 50mg/day caused an increase in serum testosterone levels and also increased lean muscle mass.
Zinc Chelate is important for hormone production, protein synthesis, immune function and prostate health. It is also required in the enzymatic process that converts your natural “andro” to testosterone.
Vitamin B6 studies show that zinc combined with vitamin B6 was able to inhibit the conversion of testosterone to unwanted DHT. Studies also show that the amount of vitamin B6 within cells affects how well the cells respond to steroid hormones.
Magnesium Aspartate has been shown to promote muscle strength and endurance gains. The bonded aspartate also helps reduce lactic acid build up, sustain optimal muscle contraction and improve endurance. A deficiency in this mineral will decrease oxygen delivery to your muscle tissue.
Testosterone Support Complex
Avena Sativa Extract (Wild Oat Straw) contains phytochemicals called alkaloids (thought to account for the relaxing effect of oat supplementation) and saponins which are believed to work as an aphrodisiac. Researchers discovered that Avena Sativa works by freeing up testosterone, which becomes increasingly bound to various compounds within the body with advancing age. Bound testosterone is not nearly as effective as free testosterone in stimulating the sex centers in the brain that generate sex drive. Studies also show it plays a role in helping to lower blood cholesterol, particularly LDL (“bad”) cholesterol.
Peruvian Maca Root (Peruvian Ginseng) is an adaptogen herb used to enhance libido, boost hormone levels, increase energy and reduce stress. It was traditionally used by ancient warriors to promote greater strength and stamina. It is also believed to promote proper endocrine gland function (e.g., pituitary, adrenals, testes and thyroid).
Eurycoma Longifolia Jack Extract (Longjack/Tongkat Ali/Malaysian Ginseng) is a plant native to southeast Asia that has been used for generations for a variety of purposes ranging from treating common ailments to boosting stamina, vitality and libido. Dr. Johari Saad stated “when consumed regularly the research shows it acts like the drug Viagra.” In-vitro studies show it enhances the natural synthesis of testosterone, too. In mice, Longjack supplementation resulted in a giant 440% increase in free testosterone as well as increased sperm concentration and sperm motility rate. It also has been shown to have strong healing properties, an ability to inhibit cancer cells, anti fever effects and acts as an effective antioxidant.
Saw Palmetto helps minimize unwanted side effects and protect the prostate gland by blocking the conversion of testosterone to unwanted Dihydroepitestosterone (DHT). Elevated DHT levels can reduce free testosterone and cause male pattern baldness and prostrate problems.
Chrysin is added to minimize the conversion of excess testosterone to the female hormone estrogen by binding to the aromatase enzyme that converts it. It also has been shown to inhibit excessive production of the catabolic hormone cortisol.
Sarsparilla Root Extract (Smilax) is a woody vine which is a rich source of active compounds called Saponins and plant sterols. These are believed to help increase testosterone levels, cleanse the blood, improve immune function and cognitive brain functions.
Ginger Root has been shown to improve and stimulate circulation and relaxes the muscles surrounding blood vessels, facilitating the flow of blood throughout the body and genitalia. The increased blood flow helps improve erectile function and sexual stamina.
I reached a plateau about 3 years ago. I tried varying my routine, but when I'd come back to the exercises, I had the same strength as before. I tried various protein powders, too. A buddy suggested this stuff, and I took it for two months. The first week, it seemed like nothing happened. But then I started feeling stronger. On the leg press, I was doing sets of 400 lbs and getting only 3 reps by the 3rd set. I got 5 reps in my second week on this. Into week 6, I was doing 5 reps on set 3 with 440 lbs.
Great results, 7.21.2009
Reviewer: Ollie Dimna (Queens, NY)
After a month of using it, I packed on 15 lbs of muscle and increased my bench press max by 20 lbs. All of last year, my bench press max increased by only 10 lbs, so I'm quite impressed.
Works great, 7.13.2009
Reviewer: Yuri Darvos (South Bend, IN)
I seem to have put on more muscle while losing fat. My arms are bigger, but I weigh the same and seem cut better.
More mass, 7.7.2009
Reviewer: Mike Peabody (San Antonio, TX)
I noticed more mass after using this for a full cycle. I waited a month and tried another cycle and didn't seem to add any new muscle again. Maybe I'm at my max. It sure worked great the first time!
