With increasing pollutants in the environment and food, wrong eating habits and stressful life style, sexual problems and infertility is on the rise.
Following are few scientific research references of the herbs used in KAMTONE Capsule, which validates their role in treating infertility and thereby improving overall sexual health & performance.
1. Mucuna pruriens (Kaunch beej)
Evidance Based Complementary and Alternative Medicine.

Mucuna pruriens Reduces Stress and Improves the Quality of Semen in Infertile Men
Kamla Kant Shukla,1 Abbas Ali Mahdi,1 Mohammad Kaleem Ahmad,1 Shyam Pyari Jaiswar,2 Satya Narain Shankwar,3 and Sarvada Chandra Tiwari4
On the basis of the afore-stated facts, it may be proposed that increased dopamine level in the brain may not only optimize the release of hormones, including testosterone, leading to increased sexual drive and improved performance, but it may also accomplish reduction of psychological stress. Moreover, treatment with Mucuna pruriens may also contribute to proper functioning of male genital system and facilitate sperm transport, contraction of seminal vesicles and inhibition of lipid peroxidation of spermatozoa.

Effect of Mucuna pruriens (Linn.) on oxidative stress-induced structural alteration of corpus cavernosum in streptozotocin-induced diabetic rat.
Suresh S1, Prakash S.
The ethanolic extract of M. pruriens seed significantly recovered or protected erectile tissue from the oxidative stress-induced degeneration by its antioxidant potentials. These findings propound to serve mankind by the treatment of diabetes-induced erectile dysfunction.

2. Pueraria tuberosa (Vidari Kand):

Pueraria tuberosa DC extract improves androgenesis and sexual behavior via FSH LH cascade.
Chauhan NS1, Sharma V1, Thakur M2, Christine Helena Frankland Sawaya A3, Dixit Vk1.
Pueraria tuberosa extract possesses androgenic effect and it significantly increased the sexual behavior and hormones level.
3. Tribulus terrestris (Gokhru):

2012 Jan;3(1):43-7. doi: 10.4103/0976-500X.92512.
Evaluation of the aphrodisiac activity of Tribulus terrestris Linn. in sexually sluggish male albino rats.
Singh S1, Nair V, Gupta YK
Findings of the present study validate the traditional use of T. terrestris as a sexual enhancer in the management of sexual dysfunction in males.
2010 Feb;42(1):48-56. doi: 10.1111/j.1439-0272.2009.00956.x.
Clinical evaluation of spermatogenic activity of processed Shilajit in oligospermia (low concentration of sperm).
Biswas TK1, Pandit S, Mondal S, Biswas SK, Jana U, Ghosh T, Tripathi PC, Debnath PK, Auddy RG, Auddy B.
Seminal parameters and lipid peroxidation were improved in a pro-fertility manner in response to 90 days of 200mg Shilajit in infertile men, with a 23.5% increase in testosterone and 9.8% increase in follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) with no influence on luteinizing hormone (LH). The present findings provide further evidence of the spermatogenic nature of Shilajit, as attributed in Ayurvedic medicine, particularly when administered as processed Shilajit (PS).
5. Withnia somnifera (Ashwagandha):
Fertil Steril. 2010 Aug;94(3):989-96. doi: 10.1016/
Journal of Fertility and Sterility 2009.04.046. Epub 2009 Jun 6.
Withania somnifera improves semen quality by regulating reproductive hormone levels and oxidative stress in seminal plasma of infertile males.
Ahmad MK1, Mahdi AA, Shukla KK, Islam N, Rajender S, Madhukar D, Shankhwar SN, Ahmad S.
The treatment with W. somnifera effectively reduced oxidative stress, as assessed by decreased levels of various oxidants and improved level of diverse antioxidants. Moreover, the levels of testosterone, luteinizing hormone (LH), follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) and prolactin (PRL), good indicators of semen quality, were also reversed in infertile subjects after treatment with the herbal preparation.
6. Asparagus racemosus (Shatawari):
May 2009, Vol. 47, No. 5 , Pages 390-395
Effect of Asparagus racemosus on sexual dysfunction in hyperglycemic male rats
Mayank Thakur, Shilpi Bhargava, V.K. Dixit
The study validates the traditional claim of using Asparagus racemosus as an aphrodisiac herb for treating sexual dysfunction in males.
7. Asteracantha longifolia (Talmakhana):
Natural Product Research.
2011 Sep;25(15):1423-31. doi: 10.1080/14786410802588493. Epub 2011 Jul 8.
Effect of Asteracantha longifolia seeds on the sexual behaviour of male rats.
Chauhan NS1, Sharma V, Dixit VK.
The ethanolic extract exhibited pronounced anabolic effects in treated animals, as evidenced by gains in the body and reproductive organ weights. Increased spermatogenesis due to treatment with extracts was also witnessed in transverse section. The treatment further markedly affected sexual behaviour of the animals, as reflected by the reduction of mount latency (ML), increase in mount frequency (MF) and enhanced attractability towards females. A significant increase in the sperm count as well as fructose levels of seminal vesicles was noted.
8. Asparagus adscendes/Chlorophytum Borivilianum (Safed Musli):
2011 Aug;43(4):273-7. doi: 10.1111/j.1439-0272.2010.01068.x. Epub 2011 Mar 28.
Improvement of penile erection, sperm count and seminal fructose levels in vivo and nitric oxide release in vitro by ayurvedic herbs.
Thakur M1, Thompson D, Connellan P, Deseo MA, Morris C, Dixit VK.
Centre for Phytochemistry and Pharmacology, Southern Cross University, Lismore, NSW, Australia
The aphrodisiac claims attributed to the four Vajikaran Rasayana herbs were tested and a distinctive effect of all extracts tested was observed, with C. borivilianum showing a highly significant response for all parameters measured in vivo and in vitro. The present study also provides a good correlation between the in vivo improvement of penile erection and in vitro NO releasing activity of the extracts. Increase in seminal fructose levels and sperm count further validates the role of these herbs in improving reproductive function.
