on Sex Drive and Libido
Andalas University, School of Medicine, Padang, Indonesia (1993)
To test the effectiveness of Tribulus terrestris in treating impotence
and male libido disorders, we enrolled 11 subjects, composed of
4 men diagnosed with lowered or nonexistent libido and 7 impotent
men. To these two groups, 3 x 1 Libilov tablets were administered
per day for 2 weeks,
without any additional vitamin supplements or pharmaceutical therapeutics.
50% of the subjects with reduced libido reported increased sex drive
after Libilov treatment. Close to 60% of impotent subjects experienced
improved erection, including prolonged duration of erection after
This trial suggested that even a short period of treatment with
Libilov was effective in treating these two conditions. Furthermore,
as with previous trials, no adverse side-effects were observed.

Male erectile dysfunctions are composed of the dysfunctions of
libido, erection, ejaculation and orgasm. One medical approach to
solve this problem is the use of natural medicine, i.e. the use
of compounds derived from natural sources rather than those of synthetic
origins. Here, we conduct a clinical trial to test the efficacy
of Libilov's protodioscin, a natural compound derived from the extract
of a medicinal plant Tribulus terrestris. In this test, we study
the sex drive, erection, ejaculation and orgasm of 53 married men
diagnosed with sexual dysfunctions. These men were given Libilov
at 3 x 2 tablets per day for 3 months.
We report that statistical analyses suggest significant improvement
in sex drive in the majority of our trial constituents, without
any evidence of adverse effects.
