Abstract: 

Cinnamon is a plant with scientific name Cinnamomum zeylanicum that belong to Lauraceae family. This plant has many pharmaceutical effects which one of the best important uses is increasing of sexuality. In this research considered the effects of Cinnamon bark extract on structure of testise tissue and number of sexual cells in Balb/c mice. At first, samples separated full casually, as six groups (four treatment groups and two groups, control and placebo) and in any group was eight samples that kept in same condition. Cinnamon hydro-ethanolic extract provided in different dose (50,100,200 and 400mg/kg/2day) and injected intraperitonealy for 20 days to care groups and also used from normal saline and ethanol for injecting to placebo group (Zero dose). The best important parameters evaluted in this research included: the testicles weight changes, probably histological changes in testis and change in number of sexual cells in comparison with control group. The number of primary spermatocytes and assess of histological properties were done with provided sections of seminiferous tubules and with use light microscope. Also, the spermatozoids were counted with use hemocytometer lamel. The analyses of results indicated that no significant differences were observed in weight of testicles and histological properties in any group. The number of primary spermatocytes and spermatozoids significantly can be increased in dose of 100, 200 and 400mg/kg/2day in comparison with other groups. The findings of this research indicated the positive effect of cinnamon extract on male reproductive system because number of sexual cells meaningful improved.
