    I was not aware that its principal component is harmine. Harmine is a purported acetylcholinesterase inhibitor. Although I do not feel like Tribulus enhances cognition, acetylcholine can improve muscular activity. The testosterone like effects of Tribulus may then be attributed to peripheral nervous system enhancement of acetylcholine resulting in improved physical stamina.
