Discussion
By analysis of all the observation it is revealed that p value in all the seminal parameters i.e Semen volume, Sperm count, Liquification time, Sperm motility, Shukra Sarata symptoms was less than 0.001. It was statistically highly significant. Also after 60 days follow up it was observe that benefits were found in symptoms of shukrasarata.

Conclusion– By concluding above study it can be said that vrushya ahar dravya had key role in facilating spermatogenesis in all parameters and increasing symptoms of shukra sarata. Also it can be said that there is absolute correlation in between Ahar dravyas and Saptadhatu.
