2 Abstract: This study was carried out to throw the light on the tested sexual hormones; estrogen, progesterone, testosterone, FSH and LH levels in diabetic and non-diabetic rats, as well to determine the impact of the dietary intake Ashwagandha roots powder for four weeks on the former sexual hormones and on serum glucose, cholesterol and triglyceride levels in diabetic and non-diabetic rats. The obtained Results illustrated that the dietary intake Ashwagandha roots powder was effective in… Expand

Effect of Dietary Intake Alcoholic Extract of Palm Pollen (L.Phoenix dactylifera) on Pituitary-Testicular Axis in Male Diabetic Rats
TLDR
It is suggested that the extract of pollen of Phoenix dactylifera may improve and protect testis structure diabetic rats and may have a regulatory effect on diabetes-induced change of the level of testosterone hormone in diabetic male rats. Expand
Effects of Withania coagulans extract and morphine on spermatogenesis in rats
TLDR
The results show that the higher dose of Withania coagolans extract exerts varying effects on reproductive parameters, while the lower dose enhanced spermatogenesis while also protecting against the damaging effects of morphine. Expand
The Potential Ameliorative Role of Ashwagandha (Withania somnifera) Roots Extract on Oxidative Stress
The present study was intended to investigate the potential ameliorative role of ashwagandha roots extract (ARE) on oxidative stress. Thirty (30) adult male albino rats were randomly distributed intoExpand
The Histomorphometric Effects of Maternal Diabetes on Rat Offspring ’ s Ovaries at the Puberty
In pregnant mothers, maternal diabetes occurs when the pancreas cannot produce enough insulin, which l eads to increased blood glucose concentration in the mother and consequently in the foetus,Expand
Impact of Biofield Energy Treated (The Trivedi Effect®) Herbomineral Formulation on the Immune Biomarkers and Blood Related Parameters of Female Sprague Dawley Rats
TLDR
Overall data suggest that The Trivedi Effect®-Biofield Energy Healing Treatment on the herbomineral formulation can be used for autoimmune and inflammatory diseases, stress management, and anti-aging by improving overall health. Expand
Is the use of plants in Jordanian folk medicine for the treatment of male sexual dysfunction scientifically based? Review of in vitro and in vivo human and animal studies
TLDR
Many plants used in Jordanian folk medicine decreased or had no effect on spermatogenesis in animal models, and these plants have antioxidant and/or adaptogenic effects, and this may result in a beneficial action on male reproductive system. Expand
Ovarian Histomorphometry at Puberty in Rat Offspring from Diabetic Mothers
TLDR
Maternal hyperglycaemia exhibited deleterious effects on the reproductive system of their offspring as revealed in the offspring of the diabetic mothers (ODM) compared to that of controls. Expand
An investigation into the stress-relieving and pharmacological actions of an ashwagandha (Withania somnifera) extract
TLDR
These findings suggest that ashwagandha's stress-relieving effects may occur via its moderating effect on the hypothalamus-pituitary-adrenal axis, and further investigation utilizing larger sample sizes, diverse clinical and cultural populations, and varying treatment dosages are needed to substantiate these findings. Expand
Effect of Biofield Energy Healing (The Trivedi Effect®) Based Novel Herbomineral Formulation on Immune Biomarkers After Oral Administration in Female Sprague Dawley Rats
TLDR
The data suggests that theBiofield Energy Treated test formulation and Biofield Energy Treatment group per se at day -15 have shown a significant immunomodulatory potential and can be used for autoimmune and inflammatory diseases, stress management and anti-aging by improving overall health. Expand
Effects of Withania somnifera on Reproductive System: A Systematic Review of the Available Evidence
TLDR
WS was found to enhance spermatogenesis and sperm related indices in male and sexual behaviors in female and further studies should focus on the extract preparation method and also dosage used in their study protocols. Expand

Protection of testicular dysfunctions by MTEC, a formulated herbal drug, in streptozotocin induced diabetic rat.
TLDR
The results support the validity of this herbal drug for the management of testicular disorders noted in diabetic state and have no general toxic effects on the body weight, as well as on the activities of serum glutamate and pyruvate transaminases in serum. Expand
Influence of streptozotocin-induced diabetes and insulin treatment on the pituitary-testicular axis during sexual maturation in rats.
TLDR
The results indicate that diabetes-induced steroidogenic lesions in Leydig cells represent a direct consequence of dysfunctioning of pituitary-testicular axis, and optimum insulin level is essential for the acquisition of Leydigs cellular steroidogenic efficacy during sexual development. Expand
Effect of Withania somnifera root extract on the sexual behaviour of male rats.
TLDR
The root extract induced a marked impairment in libido, sexual performance, sexual vigour, and penile erectile dysfunction that may be attributed to hyperprolactinemic, GABAergic, serotonergic or sedative activities of the extract. Expand

TLDR
It was concluded that extracts of both plants have a direct spermatogenic influence on the seminiferous tubules of immature rats presumably by exerting a testosterone-like effect. Expand

TLDR
It is suggested that bearberry, golden seal, mistletoe and tarragon may counter some of the symptoms of streptozotocin diabetes without, however, affecting glycemic control. Expand

Withania somnifera improves semen quality by regulating reproductive hormone levels and oxidative stress in seminal plasma of infertile males.
TLDR
The treatment with W. somnifera effectively reduced oxidative stress, as assessed by decreased levels of various oxidants and improved level of diverse antioxidants, and good indicators of semen quality, were also reversed in infertile subjects after treatment with the herbal preparation. Expand
The effect of the aqueous extract of Cynomorium coccineum on the epididymal sperm pattern of the rat
TLDR
The results revealed that the water extract of the Cynomorium coccineum induced significant increase in the sperm count, improved the percentage of live sperm and their motility and decreased the number of abnormal sperm. Expand
