Background and Objectives: Through out the history, medicinal plants have had great importance. Date palm is a species of phoenix Dactylifera and a genus of palamse. The pollen of date palm contains five chemical compounds. Quercetin, Rutin, Beta-Amyrin,Beta-Sitosterol and Uronic –Acid. Four of these compounds have biological activities. The present study aim was to determin of the effects of date pollen on serum density of estrogen, progesterone and gonadotropin in female rats.
Materials and Methods: In this experimental study, forty female vistar rats were first classified into five groups of eight. In order to set them in the same sex cycles hormones, we used of sexy hormones. Phoenix dactylifera was given in peritoneum for 14 days. Experimentsl groups received 100, 200 and 400 mg/kg of Phoenix dactylifera. Control group received no medication, and the sham group received only distilled water. Blood samples were taken at the end of the 14 days and serum concentration of LH, FSH, Estrogen and Progesterone was measured.
Results: The results of this study showed that the serum density of LH and FSH in the experimental group was not significantly different compared to the control group. Received groups 200 & 400 mg/kg Phoenix dactylifera showed increasing the amount of Estrogen and Progesterone hormones (p<0.05).
Concluation: According to the findings of this study, phoenix dactylifera increases Estrogen and Progesterone, but has no effect on the Gonadotropins.
Key words: Phoenix dactylifera, Estrogen, Progesterone, Gonadotropin, Rat
Funding: This research was funded by Islamic Azad University, Kazeron Branch.
