Objective: To investigate Cyperus esculentus aqueous extract on paroxetine-mediated sexual dysfunction in male Wistar rats. Methods: Sexually dysfunctioned (SD) rats were orally treated with PowMaxM [reference drug (7.14 mg/kg)] and the extract (500 and 1000 mg/kg body weight) once daily for 10 days, and their sexual behavioural parameters were monitored and computed. Relative testes-body weight and testicular function parameters were also evaluated at the end of the treatment period. Results…

Brysocarpus coccineus (Schum & Thonn) root reinstates sexual competence and testicular function in paroxetine‐induced sexual dysfunction in male Wistar rats
TLDR
The restoration of androgen‐dependent sexual and testicular functions in SD male rats by AEBCR validates its folkloric use as aphrodisiac.
Morella serrata (Lam.) Killick stabilizes biomembrane and rejuvenates sexual competence in male Wistar rats.
Cyperus esculentus L. (tigernut) mitigates high salt diet‐associated testicular toxicity in Wistar rats by targeting testicular steroidogenesis, oxidative stress and inflammation
TLDR
Cyperus esculentus exhibited a dose‐dependent mitigation of HSD‐associated testicular dysfunction by targeting testicular steroidogenesis, oxidative stress and inflammation.
Aqueous Extract of Cyperus esculentus L. (Cyperaceae) Enhances Libido and Spermatogenesis in Male Wistar Rats
TLDR
The tuber has been an excellent dietary food, which is often used in the middle-east to stimulate libido but without scientific backings for it assumed aphrodisiac properties, previous research showed a rise in the incidence of male sexual incompetence correlating with sexual dysfunction.
Protective effects of Nymphaea lotus Linn . ( Nymphaeaceae ) on N ( ω )-nitro-L-arginine methyl ester-induced tissular oxidative damages and erectile dysfunction in hypertensive male rat
TLDR
The results suggest N. lotus may provide significant protection against L-NAME-induced tissular oxidative damages by upregulation of antioxidant systems and promotion of the vasodilator factors in chronic NO-deficient rats.
Amelioration of neurotoxicity induced by esfenvalerate: impact of Cyperus rotundus L. tuber extract
TLDR
Treatment with C. rotundus extract significantly showed a protective effect against esfenvalerate by ameliorating levels of antioxidant enzymes, acetylcholine esterase, and inflammatory markers.
Multi-plant (Phoenix dactylifera and Cyperus esculentus) Effects on Regulating Diet Induced-hypercholesterolemia in Female Sprague-Dawley Rats
TLDR
Values were regulated after treatment particularly in 1200mg/kg b.w in rats administered P. dactylifera and C. esculentus regulate hypercholesterolemia in rats while C. Esculentu particularly is the super active constituent in the mix.
KINETICS OF MODULATORY ROLE OF Cyperus esculentus L. ON THE SPECIFIC ACTIVITY OF KEY CARBOHYDRATE METABOLIZING ENZYMES
TLDR
The respective competitive and non-competitive mode of action of the extract is due to its inhibitory potentials on the activities of α-amylase and α-glucosidase.

Aphrodisiac effect of aqueous root extract of Lecaniodiscus cupanioides in sexually impaired rats
TLDR
Data obtained from this study revealed that the aqueous root extract of L. cupanioides restored sexual competence in sexually impaired male rats possibly by increasing sexual drive through enhanced reproductive hormones concentration, particularly testosterone, thus supporting the folkloric claim of the plant for the management of sexual disorder in males.
Aphrodisiac potentials of the aqueous extract of Fadogia agrestis (Schweinf. Ex Hiern) stem in male albino rats.
TLDR
The aqueous extract of Fadogia agrestis stem increased the blood testosterone concentrations and this may be the mechanism responsible for its aphrodisiac effects and various masculine behaviors.
Effect of 50% ethanolic extract of Syzygium aromaticum (L.) Merr. & Perry. (clove) on sexual behaviour of normal male rats
TLDR
The results indicated that the 50% ethanolic extract of clove produced a significant and sustained increase in the sexual activity of normal male rats, without any conspicuous gastric ulceration and adverse effects, lends support to the claims for its traditional usage in sexual disorders.
Effect of Aqueous Extract of Massularia acuminata Stem on Sexual Behaviour of Male Wistar Rats
TLDR
The improved sexual appetitive behaviour in male rats at the doses of 500 and 1000 mg/kg body weight of Massularia acuminata stem may be attributed, at least in part, to the alkaloids, saponins, and/or flavonoids since these phytochemicals has engorgement, androgen enhancing, and antioxidant properties.
Evaluation of androgenic activity of Zingiber officinale and Pentadiplandra brazzeana in male rats
TLDR
Aqueous extracts of Zingiber officinale and Pentadiplandra brazzeana have an androgenic activity, which seems to be more potent with P.brazzeanatreated rats than with z.officinale.

TLDR
Tiger nut has positive effects on the copulatory behavior of adult male rats and improved sexual performance, indicated by increased intromission frequency and ratio, in treated moderately active rats compared to controls.
