    Different Tribulus Products for off cycle use

    I've just started my first pro-hormone cycle of 1-AD (thanks dg806 & 1fast400) and I was looking into what I should be taking off cycle in 4 weeks.

    I can't find any 6-Oxo in Canada, so I was thinking Tribulus Terrestris.

    The thing is that a lot of Tribulus products include other extracts like Avena Sativa or Furostanol.

    Are these worth anything? Or should I stick to some pure Tribulus?

    And what other options are there for post-cycle suppplements?

    Corri, If your cycle is going to be 4 weeks or less, you shouldn't need 6-oxo as natural T levels aren't suppresed very much in for weeks. You should go with Syntrax Fuzu for libido. Most guys I hear talk say this has worked better than any others. I have used it also and like it very much. If your cycle is longer than 4 weeks you will need oxo. You can get it from 1fast also!(He will get it through customs).

    lol.. Yeah, Mike is good at that eh. He got my 1-AD to Toronto in 5 days.

    Biotest is the one with that Avena Sativa stuff eh. And Fuzu's got a whole bunch oif things I don't recognize.

    My cycle will be 4 weeks long though.. Maybe I'll give Mike another call for some Oxo.

    Thanks.

    I like 3 products...Biotest Tribex, Syntrax Fuzu, and Sopharma Tribestan. Sopharma is the original tribulis product and is of very high quality!

    They have Sopharma at my local supp store, and Tribex too.

    The thing that confuses me actually is that Oxo and Tribulus seem to do very different things but are used for the same purpose.

    Oxo, as inderstand, will keep my estrogen levels from shooting too high.

    And Tribulus is supposed to boost my LH levels, to get my natural Test back up to where it should be.

    What about using both? Does that make any sense?

    They both work through different mechanisms, however, will both indirectly raise test and lower estrogen. Tribex is better at raising test and OXO is better at lowering estrogen. Using both would be a good stack. Sort of combining clomid and nolvadex in the steroid world.

    I think I would disagree with this statement...

    Prohormones and steroids act as replacements for natural testosterone, and as a consequence, prolonged usage of these substances results in the body resetting the level of its own natural testosterone production. Your body does this by adjusting the activity of the hypothalamic pituitary testicular axis, or HPTA. The HPTA acts like a thermostat that constantly adjusts the body’s production of testosterone to maintain a certain level in the blood. The hypothalamus is the primary sensor in this system, and it responds to both androgens (i.e. testosterone, DHT) and estrogens (derived from aromatization of androgens). The hypothalamus is so sensitive to estrogens in fact that administration of an estrogen blocker can often result in a very substantial surge in testosterone production. This is why steroid using bodybuilders take products such as Clomiphene (an estrogen receptor antagonist) and Anastrazole (an aromatase inhibitor) after cycles to jump-start their suppressed testicular testosterone production.

    I do agree however that the two stacked together would be good!

    An interesting quote TCD pointed me too when I was after some info on it.

    Par Deus quote:
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    "Tribex -- I have seen no legit studies where tribulus was shown to raise testosterone. It has been shown to raise LH (which would increase libido and erectile function), but the mechanism it likely works through is via increasing nitric oxide, which has an overall negative effect on testosterone levels because it is suppressive at the testicular level."

    And what part of it do you disagree with...that they work through different mechanisms or that one is better than the other at lowering/raising est/test?
