Components of Bulbine Natalensis Extract

From the components, we can already know its health benefits. And there are still many clinical trials to confirm these effects. Let’s see details as the following.
Health Benefits of Bulbine Natalensis Extract
High testosterone levels improve libido, mood, and overall sexual health in humans.
A watery extract of Bulbine natalensis raised testosterone levels in the testes and blood in rats. It also increased sexual behavior, and it was more effective than Viagra at a dose of 25-50 mg/body weight. This suggests its potential to be used in the management of disorders of libido, premature ejaculation, and erectile dysfunction in men.
Bulbine natalensis extract enhanced the success of mating and fertility in rats, as a result of the increased libido and increased reproductive hormones (testosterone, progesterone, luteinizing hormone, and follicle-stimulating hormone). However, it did not alter other parameters of sexual health, such as sperm motility, shape, viscosity, and count.
One study has been conducted with male Wistar rats fed Bulbine Natalensis (aqueous extract of the stem). It found that increases in circulating testosterone with doses of 25, 50, and 100mg/kg bodyweight. The parameters of interest were not dose-dependent, and followed a bell curve; with 50mg/kg bodyweight being the most effective, followed by 25mg/kg and then 100mg/kg bodyweight.
Lutenizing Hormone has been shown to be increased with Bulbine Natalensis in male rats, and it appears to be more drastic over time rather than an acute effect. The one study that noted increases in Lutenizing Hormone noted that the best dose (50mg/kg bodyweight) increased Lutenizing Hormone to 2ng/mL (with control around 0.6ng/mL) at day 1, but to 7ng/mL on day 14. But Luteinizing hormone does not appear to be influenced in female rats.
Also, increases in progesterone have been noted with 25mg/kg (+31%) and 50mg/kg (+70%).
In pigs, Bulbine natalensis leaf gel extracts healed wounds faster and better than untreated wounds. There was an increase in collagen, proteins, and DNA in the Bulbine natalensis-treated wounds, meaning that cells were dividing rapidly, resulting in a faster recovery.
A class of naturally occurring chemicals (phytosterols) found in Bulbine natalensis blocked the growth of one of the most toxic fungi (Aspergillus flavus).
A watery extract of this herb from the plant tuber completely blocked the growth of the fungi Aspergillus (niger and flavus) at all tested doses. Its alcohol extract also had similar effects on the growth of these fungi.
