Puncture Vine, also known as Caltrop, is most often called by its scientific name: Tribulus terrestris. I dont know why, its hard to say. ;) Sp anyways, when i read about it and what it is supposed to do, it seems like a great herb, but i have never heard anybody tell me it was awesome. However, i have had a few older gentlemen come back to me after a couple months and tell me that it does help. So basically, i wouldnt say take it and expect anything huge unless you are older (40+).
