Semen cryopreservation is used to sustain fertility in conditions like infertility and malignancy. It damages sperm organelles (mitochondria, DNA) due to augmented reactive oxygen species (ROS). In the current research, mango and pomegranate fruit extracts were evaluated for their effect on semen quality of Sahiwal bulls after cryopreservation and post thawing. The main object of the present study was to appraise the effects of herbal antioxidants on semen cryopreservation by assessment of sperm cell viability, motility as well as membrane stability by standard techniques. The addition of all treatments (MFE and PFE) to the semen extender increased the sperm viability, motility and membrane integrity at all evaluation times.
