Its primary uses today are based on its ability to increase testosterone and the effects this increase can have in men and women.

Puncture Vine has been used in multiple traditional medical systems for thousands of years. The plant gets its odd name from the thorny berries which puncture many things (including skin) on contact. The berries are a rich source of nutrients including Beta-sitosterol, vitamin C, potassium, calcium, phenolic compounds, saponins, sterols and alkaloids. The saponin protodioscin is considered the chief constituent responsible for the plant’s effects on libido and sexual functioning
The primary action of Puncture Vine is to naturally, and safely, stimulate the pituitary gland to increase the production of luteinizing hormone thereby increasing free circulating testosterone. This has the effect of decreasing male and female infertility and male impotence and increasing libido.
In men, Puncture Vine stimulates the pituitary gland to release luteinizing hormone, increasing the level of free circulating testosterone by up to 40%. In studies, Tribulus has been observed to increase the sperm count and also sperm mobility in men with low sperm count or non-viable sperm. Puncture vine is beleive to also improve sexual function through nitric oxide (NO) release, improving erection performance. Some clinical reports have suggested that increases in dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA) is also possible.
In women, luteinizing hormone controls the production of androgenic hormones, testosterone and dihydrotestosterone. Studies show that women with low testosterone levels have a low libido. When testosterone levels in these women increased, a marked increase in libido was observed.
