To investigate the androgenic effect of Kaempferia parviflora (KP), a Thai herbal plant, adult male rats were randomized into control and KP-treatment groups. Rats were treated orally with water in the control group and with 1,000 mg/kg/day of KP in the treatment group for 45 days. Blood samples were collected on days 10, 20, 30 and 45 for measurement of the serum follicle stimulating hormone (FSH), luteinizing hormone (LH), testosterone, progesterone and corticosterone levels. The reproductive… CONTINUE READING

There were no significant differences in the weights of either reproductive ( testis , seminal vesicle plus coagulating gland , levator ani muscle plus bulbocarvernosus muscle and glans penis , except the prostate gland ) or non - reproductive organs ( kidney , adrenal gland and gastracnemius muscle ) .
