Aim of Study
Aim of this study to examine change in the amount, motility, morphology, and viability spermatozoa male rats (rattus norvegicus) due to temu putih fraction suplementation.
This study was an experimental study using a completely randomized design (CRD), post test with control group design. The sample in this study was 30 male rats, 10 weeks old, weight 150-200 gram. Rats were given temu putih fraction (n hexan, etylacetate and methanol-water) at dose of 300 mg/kgBB/day for 48 days. Temu putih was extracted by ethanol and did fractionation by liquid-liquid methods. The results of this study were assayed by SPSS 18.
The amount, motility, morphology and viability of spermatozoa in the group of metanol fraction of water decreased compared with the control group (p= 0,000), motilitas of spermatozoa in the group of metanol water fraction decreased compared with the control group.
Temu putih fraction can reduce the amount, motility, morphology, and viability of spermatozoa in male rats.
