Abstract:
The attenuating potential of Trévo Dietary Supplement (TDS), a multi-herbal health drink containing 174 ingredients on caffeine-induced sperm toxicities was studied on albino rats. Thirty healthy male albino rats of 12 weeks old were divided into five groups with six rats in each group using a Completely Randomized Design (CRD). The experimental animals were treated with combinations of caffeine and TDS orally. The treatment lasted for 65 days. Results indicated statistically significant (p<0.05) decreases in weight of testes and epididymis, epididymal sperm viability, motility and count in caffeine treated rats. There was a concomitant increase in sperm head abnormalities in caffeine treated rats. However, TDS effectively attenuated the caffeine induced sperm toxicities in albino rat models in a dose dependent manner.
