Supplement Showdown: Fenugreek VS Tribulus

At Accelerated Genetix we formulate tons of muscle builders and testosterone boosting supplements. Testosterone, known as the master male hormone, helps build muscle, boost libido, burn fat and helps promote confidence. As we age, testosterone starts to decline around age 30 at a rate of 1.2% per year. Natural supplements such as Fenugreek and Tribulus can help slow down your natural decline of testosterone and help keep your body optimized for as long as possible. Today on the Accelerated Genetix Blog, we discuss Fenugreek VS Tribulus.


Fenugreek is a sweet spice popular in Asian cuisine. Outside of its testosterone boosting benefits, Fenugreek helps improve gut health and helps reduce sugar cravings by regulating insulin levels. The main benefit from using Fenugreek as it pertains to your testosterone production is that it inhibits a protein called SHBG (sex hormone binding globulin that binds to androgens and estrogens). Fenugreek has shown to treat erectile dysfunction effectively, and boost libido, arousal and sex drive. Research also shows that Fenugreek is more effective when you stack it with magnesium and zinc because it elevates bio-availability.


Tribulus is an aphrodisiac herb that’s been around forever but made popular in the 1970’s by Bulgarian bodybuilders. Tribulus contains steroidal saponins, a natural plant glycoside, which is said to cause in increase in testosterone. Although there seems to be a lack in research as it relates to Tribulus and its testosterone boosting benefits, it does however show promise in increasing androgen(testosterone) receptors in the brain. This allows the testosterone you already have to bind to a greater number of receptor sites, resulting in a boost in libido.

Winner Winner Chicken Dinner

When putting Fenugreek up against Tribulus, Fenugreek is the clear winner when it comes to boosting testosterone levels. Although both have many benefits in the libido department, we believe the overall benefits of Fenugreek as it relates to testosterone health push it ahead of Tribulus.
