Infertility On The Rise In Nigeria


Local research has shown that erectile dysfunction, one of the major causes of infertility is on the rise in Nigeria. This was made known by GreenLife Pharmaceutical Ltd. in Lagos at the public presentation of MANIX, a herbal medicine for tackling the health condition. According to the statement read by Gbenga Afolabi, a senior official on behalf of the company, “in a recent study in Nigeria, 57 per cent of men over 35 years have reported incidences of erectile dysfunction. Still most men feel reluctant to or embarrassed to discuss this problem with their doctors or seek treatment.”

Erectile dysfunction is a health condition that develops over time and destroys essential tissues. The result is inability to sustain erection, enjoy sex and in extreme cases can lead to the absence of a passion for sex in couples. It also results in low sperm volume and poor quality of sperm produced during ejaculation.

To ameliorate this nagging problem, he said the company is partnering with Wockhardt, an Indian-based pharmaceutical manufacturing firm to make MANIX available in the Nigerian market.

Also Speaking at the event, Hamashu Katira, Wockhardt Production Development Manager, noted that “infertility has become a global problem and in this part of the world, we are even deprived of finding out what the causes are.”

He explained that extensive scientific research on the product has been done in India and other parts of the world and have been found to be efficacious and in accordance with acceptable practices

Katira explained that MANIX as a natural substance stimulates the body to generate erection itself. The new drug, he added, is enhances the generation, development and maturation of sperm by increasing its volume, motility and count by about four times the normal output. Unlike the popular aphrodisiacs, MANIX is said to cleanse the body through a process regeneration without any untoward effects.
