Butea Superba Secret Mens Supports Healthy Cardiovascular SystemAuthor: N/A
For us, the cardiovasular system of man is as follows: Oxygenated blood is pumped by the left ventricle of the heart to the aorta. Conclusion The cardiovascular system of animals consists of the heart and blood vessels. The blood that is returned to the heart is then recycled through the cardiovascular system.

Butea Superba has been used to enhance sexual performanace in men with unknown long-term effects on spermatozoa. This study aimed to investigate effects of chronic treatment of Butea Superba on sperm motility and concentration in rats and mice in correlation with testicular damage. Adult male rats and mice were orally administered distilled water or Butea Superba alcoholic extract (0.01, 0.1 or 1.0 mg/kg BW/day) for 6 months. At the end of the treatment the animals were sacrificed and the spermatozoa recovered from the distal cauda epididymis were analyzed fro sperm concentration and motility in vitro . The testes were processed for histological examination. The results show that long-term treatment with Butea Superba extract significantly increased the sperm concentration and delayed the decreased motility with time. None of signs of sperms anomalies and testicular damanges were observed. This suggests that chronic use of Butea Superba increases the number of sperm, prolongs sperm motility in vitro while produces no changes on sperm morphology. Therefore, chronic use of Butea Superba alcoholic extract may be useful in fertilization.

Ethanolic extract of stem bark of Butea Superba was investigated for hepatoprotective activity against carbon tetrachloride induced liver damage. VArious biochemical parameters were studied to evaluate the hepatoprotective activity of crude etract. In serum, total bilirubin, total protein, aspartate transaminase, alanine transaminase and alkaline phosphatases were determined to assess the effect of the extract on the CCI induced hepatic dmanage. The study was also supported by histopathology of liver sections. Results of this study revealed that the serum markers in the animals treated with CCI recorded elevated concentration indicating severe hepatic damage by CCI. Where as the blood samples from the animals treated with ethanol extract of stem bark showed significant reduction in the serum markers indicating the effect of the plant extract in restoring the normal functional ability of the hepatocytes. Among the two doses of the extract tested, the hepatoprotective activity was more pronounced at the dose of 100 mg/kg. The present study reveals that the ethanol stem bark extract of Butea Superba could afford a significant protection against CCI induced hepatocellular injury.
