Pros: Great for boosting testosterone levels for strength and sex drive.
Cons: Can be embarassing if you aren't expecting arousal at the gym.
The Bottom Line: The product works great, but it's best used in the privacy of your own home, otherwise you could find yourself aroused at the gym.
I have been an active duty Air Force Unit Fitness Program Manager for quite some time now. During that time, I have been through numerous classes on a variety of different aspects of health, from smoking, to weight loss, to fad diets, to circuit/weight training, and virtually every other topic you could imagine.
As a UFPM, I am directly responsible for the management of the health and fitness for upwards of 800 personnel at any given period of time. This means that I administer all fitness testing, I counsel those that are having weight issues, and I aid in training those that desire the added assistance in obtaining muscle mass, losing weight, or whatever their goals are. Essentially, I am a personal trainer for the military.
This job of course is much different in the military however, than it would be in the civilian world. In the military world, we have to have a certain weight, and meet specific standards, whereas civilians are guided by their own desires. This means that in order for personnel to keep their jobs, I have to be on top of all of the best supplements, training guides, equipment, and methods of training that will yield the best results for each individual user's goals.
Throughout my time as a UFPM, I have tried so many different products myself, read about a large number of products, attended classes, and seen the direct results of members that have used these products. I know what works, what doesn't work, and what you have to do to make these products work.
Twinlab Tribulus Fuel The concept between Tribulus fuel was I think originally meant to be a means of legally increasing testosterone levels for strength and performance during workouts. However, the product has also been shown to boost sex drive as well. Now, the product is marketed as a sex drive boosting product, probably because there's a much better market for those types of products currently.
When I originally started taking the product in 2002, the product was labelled as a testosterone stimulant that was created in order to boost your testosterone levels for performance during workouts and training. This of course would allow for better muscle growth as you could lift more, you could run further, and you would heal faster. Essentially, it's like having super strength.
Performance What I found while taking the product was mostly that it was increasing my sex drive. I started taking it for muscle growth as that's how it was labelled, but there was a noticeable difference in my overall sex drive as well. I would find that following consumption of the product, after a few hours, my sex drive would increase substantially, which made for very unusual experiences at the fitness center that I would go to. I found myself with a need to chase down women far more than I would normally even consider at the gym.
The performance side however was just as good. I found that I could lift more, lift it longer, and would ultimately have better results overall. The product definitely does boost testosterone, which does lead to great improvements in workouts over time.
Just keep in mind, that by taking this product, you could be in for an embarassing moment, when you find yourself fully aroused while doing the bench press. I don't think you can ever feel more vulnerable when you are in that position.
Taking the medicine The pills aren't all that bad to take. They are standard sized pills, and are relatively easy to swallow in comparison to most other supplements on the market. Just suck them down with water and you should be more than fine. There really isn't a taste to them so they won't make you gag even a little, unless you let them sit in the back of your throat.
Where to purchase I have seen this product in a variety of places, but I know they sell it at GNC (General Nutrition Centers). This is probably the easiest place to find the product on a consistant basis. You can also find it at major retailers in the supplement area, however most do not carry this particular product. You can also find the product online at drugstore.com, which is where I generally purchase it as it is quite a bit cheaper.
