Languages of publication
Clitoria ternatea have no toxicity as per the earlier reports of sexual stimulate effect of traditional medicine used by the tribal and fishery village women’s of Point Calimere Wildlife Sanctuary, Nagapattinam district, Southern India. In the present study, reproductive stimuli and fertility effect of raw extract of Clitoria ternatea (RECT) was administered orally at the doses of 250 mg/kg body weight of female rat for a period of 30 days and normal clean water (Normal slain 0.9%, 0.5 ml/kg per day) to control groups. There were no significance changes in the body weight of RECT treated group when compared to control group. RECT treated female rat group vigorously mated with male when allowed on estrus phase of female rat observed in vaginal smears. The serum estradiol level was increased (P < 0.05) significantly. Administered the RECT showed no significant change in the biochemical parameters and hematological parameters of RBC, WBC count when compared to control group. It is concluded that the test of RECT could be due to its reproductive effect in female rat.
