Tribulus terrestris is a flowering plant that has long been a part of herbal medicine due to its reputation as a wellness booster. A lot of attention has centered around the benefits of tribulus terrestris for male sexual health; but not many know that Tribulus terrestris offers a lot to women as well. Studies show that Tribulus may positively influence mood, sexual health, and the urinary tract.
1. Boosts Libido
Tribulus has a long history of supporting sexual function in both men and women. One study found that Tribulus improved sexual desire in 49 out of 50 female participants.  Another recent study found that women who took Tribulus experienced greater sexual desire, arousal, and satisfaction compared to those who took placebo.  Tribulus may also stimulate androgen receptors in the brain, an action that can help the body respond positively to circulating hormones.
2. Energy Enhancer
Women are instrumental in society. The weaker sex? No way. Not only are some women mothers, wives, full-time workers, and homemakers, they are also humans. Every human is bound to experience fatigue at some point or another, both mentally and physically. Some research suggests that Tribulus may provide a greater sense of energy for the body, possibly by increasing the amount of oxygen available to cells. While this won’t replace a good night’s rest, it may provide an endurance boost when women need it the most.  
3. Mood Support
Mood swings and other mood disorders can be a real bummer and many people have a resistance, rightfully, to prescription drugs. Like herbs such as kava and mulungu bark, Tribulus may be a powerful mood enhancer, stress stabilizer, and anxiety reliever.  This can be helpful for women who juggle multiple responsibilities in one day and may be especially useful for combating issues associated with PMS.
4. Urinary Tract Protection
As a diuretic, Tribulus may encourage urine flow, which helps with cleansing the kidneys, bladder, liver, and urethra. The removal of wastes and the cleansing action attributed to increased urine output and kidney support. Additionally, the release of fluid may encourage the elimination of toxins, something that can have a dramatic impact on mood and energy.
