This aphrodisiac may give Pfizer's Viagra a run for its money following successful clinical tests.

A government enterprise in Kerala has claimed it would soon produce a desi viagra which can also increase libido as well as male sperm count.

The Thrissur-based Pharmaceutical Corporation Kerala Limited, the largest government Ayurvedic medicines producer in India, would shortly launch "Vigour Plus" having all the qualities of vitality, said its Chief Executive Officer H Nagesh Prabhu.

The company, having a turnover of Rs 20 crore and popularly known as Oushadhi, is an ayurvedic medicines manufacturing company fully owned by the Kerala government.

After successful clinical tests, the new medicine is undergoing R and D tests which are in final stages, said Prabhu. The new Viagra comprises three main ingredients sarpgandha, a herb found in Garwhal Himalayas and two other herbs -- Vayalchulli and Atamagupta.

Pointing out that other aphrodisiac medicines have side-effects, Prabhu said the new herb would considerably increase sperm counts. "There has been widespread concern over the fast decline in sperm counts among males. So our new medicine would be a revolutionary step in this regard," claimed Prabhu on the sidelines of a health fair in Dehradun.
