Tribulus terrestris is native to arid regions in Europe, Asia, Africa, and northern Australia. It is considered an aggressive and invasive species in some parts of the world, thriving in disturbed soils. The plant is often recognized by its long, sharp, spiny fruit known to pierce bike tires and shoes. For this reason, it has earned many common names such as puncture vine, devil’s thorn, and goat’s head. Tribulus fruit has been used for its healthful qualities in Traditional Chinese Medicine and Ayurveda where it’s referred to as gokshura. Tribulus can be infused as herbal tea or extracted as a tincture.
Tribulus is a member of the Zygophyllaceae family and also goes by the name puncturevine caltrop and small caltrops.
