Abstract

Sanrego (Lunasia amara Blanco) has been used in the folk medicine in Indonesia as aphrodisiac agent and to treat male fertility problem. This research studied the effects of oral administration of aqueous extract of sanrego at the doses of 30, 60 and 90 mg/kg body weight respectively on the sperm count, motility, morphology, fertility and its aphrodisiac property in male rats. Control group was administered with distilled water. Administration was given by oral gavaging between 10.00 am to 11.00 am daily for a period of 42 days followed by sperm analysis and fertility test. The sperm analysis showed that the sanrego significantly increase the sperm count with the best grade in motility (grade a) without affecting the sperm morphology. The fertility rate was also increased in treated animals. The number of mounting in male rats treated with sanrego was higher than that in control. This study shows the potential of sanrego to increase male fertility and lias aphrodisiac property.
