This drug can make the slow moving sperm move fast.
A research team of the herbal plants division of the Industrial Technology Institute has conducted experiments in regard of a red algae found in the coastal areas of Beruwala in the Kaluthara district.
Gelidiella, the algae, grows naturally in the Barbarian Reef of Moragalla, Beruwala, a coral reef that is situated very close to beach in an area surrounded by tourist hotels.
The significant drug extracted from the herb is named as S-Act-2 and it is proved able to move even the still living sperm of males, says the chief of the herbal plants division of the Industrial Technology Dr. Sirimal Premakumara.
Dr. Premakumara says that the drug is clinically tested and proved of hazard free. However, the drug is not given orally and it needs to be used clinically in intrauterine insemination (IUI) or in vitro fertilisation (IVF) .
