Stress can be mental or physical, although in the context of this article the focus will be physical stress. In this research we studied effects of ginseng under immobility stress on some testicular tissues and some hormones of male rats. In this experiment, the first and second groups were transferred daily into the Restrainer and were under Immobility stress for 2 hours per day during 15 days. For ginseng group ginseng 500mg/kg was given daily after immobility stress. The treatment group and control group were given water instead of ginseng by gavage each day. After morphology and histomorphological study of testis tissue and range of serum testosterone analysis, results discussed. Our results show that using ginseng under stress cases plays protective role of testis tissues. Present study has improved ginseng anti stress properties.
