Abstract

Benefits of white vitamin C to increace the immune system is already exis. However, the use of high doses of vitamin C and in the long term can cause side effects.. The objective of this study was to determine the side effects of high-dose injections of vitamin C in the long term on sperm quality of rats. The design used in this study is completely randomized design (CRD) with long treatment injections of high doses of vitamin C are different. ie: P0 (control), P1 (injected 30 days), P2 (injected 50 days ), P3 (injected 70 days) and P4 (injected 90 days). Parameters measured were sperm quality (motility, viability, morphology, number) ,. The results showed that the sperm quality of rats (Rattus novergivus). Sperm quality of male rats (Rattus norvegivus L.) were injected vitamin C in high doses for long periods of time between the control and treatment groups showed significant differences (P = 0.000). The quality of sperm of mice injected high doses of white vitamin C tend to decrease sperm  quality indicated by percentage of motility, viability, and morphology of spermatozoa although the concentration of spermatozoa  tends to increase.
