Tribulus Dosage

As with most dietary supplements, a safe, effective dose for Tribulus has not been established yet. Some general dosing guidelines are available based on vague "trial and error" information obtained from clinical studies. One study used a Tribulus dosage of 3.21 mg per kg of body weight to enhance athletic performance; another study used a dosage of 750 mg daily (together with other supplements).

An Introduction to Dosing With Tribulus

It is difficult to recommend a safe and effective dosage for Tribulus. The best doses have not been scientifically established yet, as is often the case with dietary supplements. However, some information is available, based on limited information from a few clinical studies.
 

What Is a Reasonable Tribulus Dosage?

Because dietary supplements do not need to be approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA,) studies to find the safest and most effective dosages for dietary supplements are rarely performed. Without such studies, only vague "trial and error" information is typically available. Even if good dosing information were available, there may be significant variability of the content, purity, and strength between different brands of the same dietary supplement, making consistently safe and effective dosing difficult.
 
During one study of Tribulus to enhance athletic performance, a dose of 3.21 mg per kg of body weight (approximately 1.6 mg per pound) each day was used. Another study used a dose of 750 mg per day in combination with various other supplements. However, neither of these studies showed that Tribulus provided any benefit for improving athletic performance.
 

General Information on Your Tribulus Dose

Some considerations for people taking Tribulus include the following:
 
  • Since the manufacturing of supplements is not closely regulated, it is important to choose a trustworthy manufacturer for Tribulus supplements. Your pharmacist is a good resource for information about which manufacturers are most reputable.
     
  • If you have any chronic health problems or take any prescription medications, it is a good idea to check with your healthcare provider before taking Tribulus.
     
  • If you are unsure about anything related to your dosage or Tribulus dosing in general, please talk with your healthcare provider or pharmacist.
