Notes for this study:
98 women with type 2 diabetes took either 1 g/d of a Tribulus extract or placebo for 3 months. The primary outcomes were fasting and 2-hour postprandial glucose. Significant improvements were seen for fasting blood glucose, 2-hour postprandial glucose, HbA1c, total cholesterol and LDL-C, while the change in triglycerides wasn't significant. HDL was nonsignificantly reduced in the Tribulus group, and dropped by more in the placebo group.
