Notes for this study:
65 infertile men took 750 mg/d of Tribulus in 3 divided doses for 12 weeks. There was a significant increase in sperm concentration, motility, and semen liquefaction time while no significant difference was seen for morphology or ejaculate volume. There was a significant increase in lean tissue and a reduction in body fat percentage. Serum DHT increased significantly but none of the other hormones did.
