Wild Plant Mineral Mixture was evaluated for the ability to improve the physiological conditions and the reproductive performance of mice. Oral administration of this Mineral Mixture with 250 and 1,250 mg/kg body weight/day to mice for 3 (short-term experiment) or 21 (long-term experiment) weeks resulted in enhanced some physiological indices and reproductive performance of mice as follows: increases in the number of white blood cells in male and female mice on week 3, and the gonad-somatic index (weight of testis) of male, the swimming performence activities, the pregnancy rate and the number of mean live births in female administered orally the Mineral Mixture for 21 weeks. The results indicate that oral administration of the Wild Plant Mineral Mixture improves the physiological conditions and the reproductive ability of mice.
