The Aqueous Crude Extract of Carrot Seeds ( Daucus carota L.) and it Role in Fertility of Male Albino Mice


This study was designed to test the effect of the treatment with aqueous extract of carrot seeds( Daucus carota) on fertility of male albino mice by effected on Body weight , testis weight ,secondary sex organs (prostate , seminal vesicle) and sperms properties .This experiment used (24) albino male mice aged(8-10)weeks. these animals were randomly divided into three groups contain two doses (200,400mgkg) were used from both extracts ,they were daily and orally given for (35)days ,and control group was given physiological saline. After the end of the experiment the animals were sacrificed after taken their body weights. The results were show: 1. A significant (p<0.05) increase in body weight and reproductive organs. 2 .A significant (p<0.05) increase in percentages of sperm motility, percentages of live sperms. and show A significant (p<0.05) decrease in percentages of sperm abnormalities.3. A significant (P<0.05) increase in hormone concentrations (Testosterone, FSH and LH) The results of the present study show the positive effect of the aqueous crude extract of carrot seeds on male fertility.
