Objective: In the present study, we examined the effect of hydroalcoholic extract of apical bud of cocos nucifera (HACN) in ceric sulphate induced infertility in male rats. Methods: Rats weighing 180 to 200 gm were randomized into 4 groups of 6 animals each that included saline treated rats (normal) were orally administered once daily with 0.5ml of distilled water, Ceric sulphate treated (1 mm/100 gm., s.c.) and HACN treated (200 and 400 mg/kg., p.o.). Ceric sulphate was given to the rats for 7…

Assessment of mating profile of male Wistar rats administered single and pooled extracts of Phoenix dactylifera and Cocos nucifera
TLDR
It is concluded that P. dactylifera and C. nucifera mix has lasting potentials on mating profile in male Wistar rats and has higher significance in the combination than date and coconut extracts.
Aphrodisiac Activity of Nutraceuticals

EVALUATION OF FERTILITY EFFICACY OF IONIDIUM SUFFRUTICOSUM EXTRACT ON SENILITY INDUCED STERILITY OF MALE ALBINO RATS
TLDR
The herb was found to be effective on the gonads of senile male albino rats, regaining its fertility to normal, when compared to control rats.
PHYTOCHEMICAL SCREENING AND APHRODISIAC ACTIVITY OF ASPARAGUS RACEMOSUS
TLDR
The results of the present study suggest that the extracts of Asparagus racemosus exert significant aphrodisiac activity and detailed studies are needed to know whether in-vivo administration of the extracts is beneficial for patients suffering from sexual disorders.
Antidiabetic and antihyperlipidemic effects of an ethanolic extract of the whole plant of Tridax procumbens (Linn.) in streptozotocin-induced diabetic rats
TLDR
The ethanolic extract of the whole plant of T. procumbens showed significant antidiabetic and antihyperlipidemic activities against streptozotocin-induced diabetes in rats.

Carnitine and glycerylphosphorylcholine in the reproductive tract of the male rat.
TLDR
The accumulation of carnitine and GPC in the epididymis has been shown to be under androgen control and the anti-androgens, cyproterone acetate and medroxyprogester one acetate did not influence secretory activity, perhaps because their effect was nullified by a high androgen concentration in epididcyal plasma.

TLDR
Some interesting results on the effect of ceric sulphate on the fertility of male albino rats are reported.
Lifestyle factors and male infertility: an evidence-based review
TLDR
The main factors that affect human male fertility and their possible influence on human reproduction are reviewed and some lifestyles, xenoestrogens, heavy metals and volatile organic compounds are already known to compromise male reproductive function.
Alcohol affects rat testicular interstitial fluid volume and testicular secretion of testosterone and beta-endorphin.
TLDR
It is found that pretreating rats with human chorionic gonadotropin failed to reverse the effects of alcohol on TIF volume and the secretion of testosterone and i-beta E, suggesting that alcohol may act through testicular beta E to suppress the synthesis and release of testosterone in the testes.
