APHRODISIAC ACTIVITY OF FORMULATED TABLET OF BOMBAX CEIBA LINN. EXTRACT IN MALE MICEAbstract
The present work deals with pharmacological studies of the formulated tablet of Bombax ceiba Linn. root extract. An aphrodisiac activity by mating behaviour test model was investigated. The dissolved tablet slurry (400 mg/kg body wt. /day) was administered orally by gavages for 28 days. Mount latency (ML), intromission latency (IL), ejaculation latency (EL), mounting frequency (MF), intromission frequency (IF), ejaculation frequency (EF) and post-ejaculatory interval (PEI) are the parameters observed before and during the sexual behaviour study at day 0, 7, 14, 21 and 28. The formulated tablet significantly reduced ML, IL, EL and PEI (p<0.05). The formulated tablet significantly increased MF, IF and EF (p<0.05). These effects were observed in sexually active and inactive male mice. Bombax ceiba roots extract tablets (400 mg/kg body wt.) have comparative aphrodisiac activity in inactive mice.
