Studying the Effects of Moringa oleifera Linn Seed Administration on Sperm Production Rate and Gonadal Sperm Reserve in Rabbits

The effects of oral administration of Moringa seed on the development rate of sperm and the gonadal sperm reserve in rabbits have been investigated in the current research. Two treatment groups receiving Moringa oleifera seed powder in drinking water (250 mg / L) were randomly allocated to 7-month-old mixed-breed male rabbits. The gonadal sperm reserve, the daily production of sperm, the sperm production per gramme test and the testicular measurements (weight, volume and density) were compared between the two groups after four weeks. The reserve of Gonadal sperm was measured using a haemocytometer. Using an improved Neubauer chamber, the number of spermatozoa was determined. Daily sperm production (DSP) was determined by dividing the time divider of the gonadal sperm reserve by 3.66, corresponding to the time in the days of the seminiferous epithelial cycle. By dividing the DSP by the weight of the testicular parenchyma, the daily sperm output per gramme test (DSPG) was determined. The findings suggest a substantially greater gonadal sperm reserve and regular sperm output for the control group (4.37±.18 to 3.27±.32 and 1.20±.06 to 0.77±.09) relative to the treatment group. However, the mean daily sperm production values per gramme tested were identical for both groups (0.53±.03 and 0.47±.20). For the control group, testicular weight (2.20±.06 to 1.43±.12) and volume (2.20±.15 to 1.73±.07) were significantly higher compared with therapy (P=0.05). For both groups (1.01±.05 to 0.82±.07), the tissue density was comparable.
