If you do wish to experiment with tribulus you can take 750-1250 mg per day divided between meals. Some people experience stomach upsets, but this can be minimized by taking it with food. There's no guarantee that tribulus terrestris will help you grow bigger muscles, but many users report a much-improved sex drive!
