Effect of Withania somnifera (L.) Dunal on Sex Hormone and Gonadotropin Levels in Addicted Male Rats
TLDR
WS increased sex hormones and gonadotropins-especially testosterone, es- trogen, and luteinizing hormone-in the addicted male rats and even increased the proges- terone level, a stimulant of most sex hormones in addicted male Rats. Expand
Effects of Withania coagulans extract and morphine on spermatogenesis in rats
Purpose: To investigate the comparative effects of Withania coagolans extract and morphine on spermatogenesis in rats Methods: W. coagolans was collected from Sistan and Baluchestan, Iran and 50 andExpand
Effect of Alcoholic Extract of Euphorbia cyparissias on Serum Glucose and Antioxidant Enzymes Level in Diabetic Male Rats
TLDR
Oral administration of E.cyparissias extract has antidiabetic effects in diabetic male rats, and level of antioxidant enzymes including TAC, MDA, SOD and GPX were increased significantly in the group of treatment 1 compared to diabetic group. Expand
Effect of alcoholic extract of Euphorbia cyparissias on the brain antioxidant enzymes in streptozotocin-induced diabetic male rats
TLDR
It can be concluded that oral administration of E. cyparissias alcoholic extract has the antidiabetic and antioxidant activities in the streptozotocin-induced diabetic rats. 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
Protective effects of wheat germ oil against erectile and endothelial dysfunction in streptozotocin-induced diabetic rats
TLDR
The findings suggest that the improvement in vascular or erectile function by WGO was not related to antioxidant effects, and new studies are needed to clarify the mechanism. Expand
Withania somnifera (Indian ginseng) in diabetes mellitus: A systematic review and meta‐analysis of scientific evidence from experimental research to clinical application
TLDR
The results suggest the potential role of W. somnifera in managing DM and well‐designed randomized‐controlled trial(s) with a larger sample size and longer duration is warranted with evaluation of its effect primarily on blood glucose, HbA1c and insulin. Expand
EFFICACY OF RASON, ASHWAGANDHA AND ASHWATHA IN DIABETIC ERECTILE DYSFUNCTION – A CRITICAL REVIEW
TLDR
It is concluded that the Rason (Allium sativum) , Ashwagandha ( Withania somnifera ) and Ashwatha ( Ficus religiosa ) are responsible for significant antidiabetic effect with the hypoglycemic property and also exhibit the efficacy in ED due to aphrodisiac properties. Expand
Effect of herbal formulation intake on health indices in albino Wistar rat model
TLDR
The results validate conventional hypocholesterolemic claims associated with ginger‐, garlic‐, and lemon‐based herbal formulations; however, deeper insight into their dose‐dependent response in hypercholesterolemia is necessitated to rule out the toxicological impact on the consumer. Expand
Modulation of diabetes-mellitus-induced male reproductive dysfunctions in experimental animal models with medicinal plants
TLDR
The present review describes the ameliorative effects of medicinal plants or their products, especially on male reproductive dysfunctions, in experimental diabetic animal models. Expand

Tungstate administration improves the sexual and reproductive function in female rats with streptozotocin-induced diabetes.
TLDR
The results indicate that the alterations in female reproduction in diabetes were partially reversed after tungstate treatment by a mechanism(s) involving the normalization of serum FSH and LH levels, and ovarian and uterine expression of FSH receptors and GLUT3. 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
Effect of ligustrum fruit extract on reproduction in experimental diabetic rats.
TLDR
In experimental diabetic rats, ligustrum fruit extract protects the damaging effect of experimental diabetes on spermatogenesis. 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
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
The hypothalamic-pituitary axis of streptozotocin-induced diabetic female rats is not normalized by estradiol replacement.
TLDR
A diabetes-induced decrease in hypothalamic proGnRH and GnRH concentration which is not corrected with E2 replacement suggests a chronic lack of GnRH stimulation from the hypothalamus but a continued ability of the pituitary to respond to GnRH. Expand
The effect of aqueous extracts of Cynomorium coccineum and Withania somnifera on testicular development in immature Wistar rats.
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
[Status of the hypophyseal-gonadal system in male rats with diabetes (experimental study)].
TLDR
The authors suggest that changed mechanism of the hypothalamo-hypophyseo-gonadal system regulation in experimental diabetes is related to the hypophyseal disorders, involving reduction of the LH-RH-stimulated gonadotropin release and of the testosterone receptor levels, this resulting in poor reproductive function control according to the negative feedback principle.

Sexual behaviour, sperm quantity and quality after short-term streptozotocin-induced hyperglycaemia in rats.
TLDR
The results indicate that diabetes mellitus produces reproductive dysfunction, but does not compromise sperm fertilizing ability in the cauda epididymis in this experimental model. Expand
The effect of extracts of Cynomorium coccineum and Withania somnifera on gonadotrophins and ovarian follicles of immature Wistar rats
The effects of water extracts of Cynomorium coccineum and Withania somnifera on ovarian follicular development and serum levels of FSH and LH were studied in immature 17‐day‐old and 25‐day‐oldWistarExpand
