ABSTRACT:
There was a time when people thought infertility was only a woman's problem. Now there is a realization that men can have fertility problems, too. When a couple is having a hard time getting child, it is just as likely to be caused by a problem with male fertility as it is with female fertility. Lawsonia inermis L. commonly known as Henna is popularly used for its leaves in cosmetics. Apart from cosmetic value it is used medicinally also. Tribals of Amravati District use its seeds in seminal debility. Presently seeds of L inermis were tested for their phytochemical profile and spermatogenic activity. Physico-chemical studies were also carried out for drug standardization. Aqueous seed extract was administered orally at dose of 50 mg/kg, 100 mg/kg and 150 mg/kg body weight respectively for 21 days to male albino rats. The results show significant increase in spermatogenic activity even at lower dose.
