YOUTHEN is a polyherbal formulation. The present was designed to establish the effect of YOUTHEN on androgenic and reproductive parameters of male albino rats. YOUTHEN at lower dose stimulated the haemopoietic function significantly. Higher dose of YOUTHEN significantly enhanced the sperm count, forward motility index and metabolic activity of tech spermatozoa of the experimental animals as compared to that of the control rats with marked improvement in sexual behaviour. The weight of accessory sex glands were increased on YOUTHEN treated rats. Concentrations of total protein and phosphomonoesterases were significantly higher, while the concentration of cholesterol in testicular tissues was lower in YOUTHEN treated rats as compared to placebo control group. The results of the present experiment lead to conclude that YOUTHEN increased the libido as well as the quality and quantity of spermatozoa in laboratory animals. The effects of YOUTHEN on haemopoietic system and on the primary and accessory sex organs suggest that the product may have androgenic effect.
