Effects of flavonoids from Cuscuta seed on the reproductive system in male rats. Asian J Androl. 2000. Flavonoids were obtained from Cuscuta sinensis. The effect on the reproductive organs of immature rats was assessed. Rats were administered Cuscuta for 7 days and the weights of testis, epididymis, seminal vesicles and pituitary glands were then observed. To observe the effect of Cuscuta on the reproductive endocrine function, Cuscuta was given to male rats of different age groups for 7 days. On day 8, the plasma testosterone, estradiol and luteinizing hormone were determined, the specific binding of luteinizing hormone was estimated and the testes were weighed. Cuscuta increased the weights of testis, epididymis and pituitary gland, and stimulated testosterone and luteinizing hormone secretion both in vitro and in immature rats. Thus, Cuscuta invigorates the reproductive system and reproductive endocrine function in male rats.
