This product, named “Tradamixina”, being a composition of TT, Alga Eckonia, D-glucosamine and N-acetylglucosamine, administered every day, throughout a 2 month period, improved libido and elevated the testosterone fractions to the average levels of 23.3 and 0.42 nmol/l, respectively (Iacono et al., 2012). It should be stressed, however, that in both experiments, there was no certainty which component(s) of those products caused the biological advantages, and whether TT contributed to those effects.
Studies carried out in primates (baboons and rhesus monkeys), rabbits and castrated rats showed that acute intravenous treatment with a TT extract (7.5 mg/kg) resulted in a significant rise of blood androgens – testosterone, DHT and DHEAS – by 52, 31 and 29% respectively in primates
there is no strong evidence for the contribution of TT to success in weightlifting. In response to aggressive marketing of nutritional supplements which are to improve health and physical performance, it is worth noting that nutritional supplements which are recommended for competitive athletes to enhance their performance may be contaminated
TT is widely touted among athletes and used by them. Ergogenic (anabolic) properties are attributed to this plant, since it supposedly elevates the blood testosterone level and stimulates skeletal muscles hypertrophy.
