Evidence based studies on single Ayurvedic herbs as Vajikarana w.s.r. to spermatogenic effect : a critical review

Anagha Vishwas Ranade, Rabinarayan Acharya.

Abstract
To manage male infertility, Ayurveda advocates vrishya drugs either single or compound herbal formulations, or both, under Vajikarana Chikitsa. Taking these classical claims into consideration, there is an increasing trend of usage of herbal drugs in infertility management pertaining to increase sperm count and motility. Many research works have been carried either on animal models or through clinical studies to prove the authenticities of certain classically important Ayurvedic drugs. But, so far no single hand information is available regarding the evidence based data of Ayurvedic medicinal plants with special reference to their spermatogenic potential. In this paper, an attempt has been made to compile the information through a computerised literary search of pre-clinical and clinical data from various search engines from available scientific journals up to 2014 and some unpublished research works of Gujarat Ayurved University, Jamnagar. Review shows that thirty Ayurvedic medicinal plants, out of which, 20 single Ayurvedic medicinal plants have been screened for their spermatogenic effect in animal models, 20 single plants have been clinically reported in management of oligospermia & 10 medicinal plants have been reported in both types of studies.

Key words: Spermatogenic, Ayurvedic plants, evidence-based, vajikarana.
