Why Should I Take Tribugen?
Tribugen is our next generation version of our popular Tribulus terrestris extract. When we created our first Tribulus terrestris extract, we wanted to achieve the perfect balance of effects. Strongly motivating and stimulating, while still remaining smooth and mood boosting. This Tribulus terrestris extract turned out to be a big hit but some people still expressed an interest in an even stronger Tribulus terrestris extract! Our first instinct was to beta-test the strongest possible Tribulus terrestris extracts but they did not feel very nice to us. Strong yes, but also incredibly edgy. So, how could we make Tribulus terrestris stronger, while not sacrificing smoothness and balance? It turns out that the answer was not to focus on a stronger Tribulus terrestris extract, instead we needed to start stacking with Tribulus terrestris with other extracts to bring out its best properties!
After many different iterations, we ultimately landed on the final Tribugen formulation, and let us tell you, it's a doozy! The combination of our 20% protodioscin Tribulus terrestris with 40% protodioscin Dioscorea nipponica, 10:1 Cordyceps militaris, mung bean extract and fenugreek extract produces the kind of strong experience that is in alignment with our tastes. The effects hit a lot harder than our Tribulus terrestris, yet the overall effects profile remains smooth. You’ll have enough drive and motivation to scale a mountain in record time, yet the whole way up, you’ve got a big smile on your face.* We are really proud of this stack and so far during our beta-testing phases it has helped us shovel piles of snow (it snows up-north in Arizona!), powered heavy lifting during a major move, and carried us further than ever on foot and bicycle due to the oodles of physical energy Tribugen can provide!
What is Tribugen?
Tribugen is our take on an enhanced Tribulus terestris extract. Instead of figuring out every single way in which we could have optimized a Tribulus terrestris extract, we went with an even more complex route: stacking! In fact, we had already tried an enormous amount of Tribulus terrestris extracts and in our opinion our current Tribulus terrestris extract is perfectly balanced but it could use a bit of a boost in strength. You could simply double up your dose, which many people have already done with good effects, however many people also experience unpleasant edginess with higher doses of Tribulus terrestris or high potency Tribulus terrestris extracts. Thus, we wanted to achieve high strength and balance via stacking. Part of this line of thinking originated from the collective experimentation of many redditors and ourselves, where we discovered that fenugreek stacked incredibly well with Tribulus terrestris. With this discovery, we decided to push the limits of Tribulus terrestris stacking!
After a number of iterations of the Tribugen stack, we started to notice some patterns. The first major finding was that protodioscin is highly integral to the effects of Tribulus terrestris. However, we found that Tribulus terrestris extracts with very high protodioscin contents always felt unpleasant to us. This led us to Dioscorea nipponica, a species of yam. We found an extract of it that is standardized to a whopping 40% protodioscin. This was as high as some of the very strong Tribulus terrestris extracts that were edgy and to our surprise, Dioscorea nipponica was ultra smooth! In fact, it lacked a lot of the stimulating and motivating properties of Tribulus terrestris. However, when we stacked the 40% protodioscin Dioscorea nipponica with our 20% protodioscin Tribulus terrestis, a phenomenal synergy occurred. Stronger Tribulus was achieved and it remained very smooth! So smooth that we figured we could add a bit more bite into the mix, so we stacked it together with our mung bean extract which is also found in Vignatex. This ramped up the stimulation quite a bit, but we felt that we could dial in the physical energy a bit more too. For this, we added in a dose of our physically stimulating 10:1 Cordyceps militaris extract. The overall mix was now very punchy, but it was starting to get slightly edgy again at this point. This is when we revisited our initial stacking inspiration, fenugreek! Adding the fenugreek smoothed the effects out even further and added a nice warm mood boost with a touch more stimulation to this mix.

A Cheat Code For Drive & Motivation
One of the main stand out features of our regular Tribulus terrestris extract, is that it is fantastic for boosting motivation and dialing in drive and confidence. We felt that our Tribulus terrestris extract excels particularly well in this area because the effects are just pushy enough while remaining smooth. Our goal with Tribugen was to increase the motivation, drive and confidence boosting effects of Tribulus terrestris even further while making sure the smoothness remained. The combination of our 20% protodioscin Tribulus terrestris with 40% protodioscin Dioscorea nipponica, mung bean extract, Cordyceps 10:1 and fenugreek certainly pulled this affects profile off!
When we finalized our formulation and started beta-testing Tribugen, we had a lot of fun with it! At first it was a little bit jarring just how hard Tribugen could kick you into gear. Once you’ve become acquainted with the effects profile though, it makes for one of the best motivation enhancers. Our product specialist Emiel took his first dose of Tribugen at around 5 pm after a long and exhausting day hoping to get a little bit of a boost. He spent the next couple of hours going for a long walk, never seeming to run out of steam! Similar stories were being shared amongst other beta-testers. One beta-tester spent a weekend having to shovel snow up in Northern Arizona. This was very tough work in cold conditions and the Tribugen helped boost his physical stamina and drive to get the job done. Our lab director James has also been taking it prior to runs and has seen his performance metrics improve on his fitness tracker. Overall, we are all in agreement that Tribugen is probably one of the best supplements to trigger that “get up and go” feeling!
When Tribugen first kicks in, it produces a sharp stimulating effect. This stimulating effect starts to ramp up slowly from this point, and while this is happening the effects also start to get warmer and more mood boosting. Once Tribugen has fully kicked in, the effects are strongly stimulating in a very motivating way. The enhanced mood boost of Tribugen when compared to standalone Tribulus terrestris also does a great job of further dialing in confidence. Tribugen is also one of those motivation aids which adds pleasure into the activity you were requiring motivation for, due to its prominent mood boosting effects.
Tribugen of course also retains and improves on the physical performance enhancing properties of Tribulus terrestris. With this in mind, Tribugen makes for a great caffeine free pre-workout supplement! It really helps dial in the drive and aggression that is needed for workouts with heavy weights. Let your inner Ronnie Coleman out with Tribugen, YEAH BUDDY!
Energy Stack: Tribugen + DynaMAX+ Ultra Enhanced Caffeine Capsules
If you are a real stimulation connoisseur and feel that Tribugen could be boosted even further, then look no further than DynaMAX+. Quick warning though, this is only for the most experienced among us. Tribugen is incredibly intense already, and stacking it together with the intense DynaMAX+ formulation is going to feel like you are getting shot out of a cannon. Proceed with caution, and for the saner amongst us, you can also stack Tribugen with our normal DynaMAX formulation for a slightly more manageable effects profile!
Motivation Stack: Tribugen + L-Tyrosine Capsules
To boost the motivation enhancing effects of Tribugen even further, while not boosting the stimulation a whole lot more, we decided to stack Tribugen with L-Tyrosine. This combination, especially in the context of daily supplementation, does a great job at dialing in motivation while keeping the effects profile smooth and balanced!
Confidence Stack: Tribugen + Tongkat Ali Extract Capsules
Tribugen is great for confidence, but it does not have very strong effects on testosterone. Thus, this opens up the unique opportunity to enhance the confidence effects even further by stacking Tribugen with our famous Tongkat ali 10% extract. This stack is sure to max out your confidence levels!
As a dietary supplement, take two capsules of Tribugen daily. If two capsules is too strong, take a single capsule.
