Abstract

The influence of the Tribulus terrestris extract on the parameters of the functional preparadness and athletes’ organism homeostase was investigated. It was established the positive impact of dietary supplement “Tribulus” (Optimum Nutrition, USA) using per 1 capsule 3 times a day during 20 days on athletes’ physical power in various energy producing zones: anaerobic alactic muscular power and anaerobic alactic glycolytic power statistically reliable increased. Tribulus terrestris extract, after 20 days of consuming it, did not have essential effect on erythrocytes, haemoglobin and throm-bocytes indices. During the experimental period statistically importantly increased percentage of granulocytes and decreased percentage of leucocytes show negative impact of this food supplement on changes of leucocytes formula in athletes’ blood. Creatinkinase concentration in athletes’ blood statistically importantly has increased and creatinine amount has had a tendency to decline during 20 days period of consuming Tribulus terrestris extract. The declining tendency of urea, cholesterol and bilirubin concentrations has appeared. The concentration of blood testosterone increased statistically reliable during the first half (10 days) of the experiment; it did not grow during the next 10 days while consuming Tribulus still.
