As Garcinia kola seed contains a complex mixture of phenol compounds, researchers at the University of Ibadan (Nigeria) College of Medicine evaluated rats chronically treated with Garcinia kola seed for their antioxidant status on the liver, testicular, and spermatozoa. When compared with the control group, long-term treatment with Garcinia kola had no detrimental effect on spermatozoa characteristics but significantly elevated testosterone levels. In rats treated with Garcinia kola, antioxidant systems improved along with a significant decrease in MDA levels in the liver, testes, and spermatozoa.
