Abstract: Worldwide epidemiological reports confirm a correlation between consumption of hard water (principally excess calcium and magnesium salts) and its adverse effect on different physiological systems. This investigation has been undertaken to evaluate the effect of two prime hard water salts (CaCl2 and MgSO4) on male reproductive system in investigational model. To conduct the study, adult male albino rats (about 90 days old) were fed with those salts in excess at different doses for 60 days and anti-gonadal and stress-inducing effect of these salts were estimated by using parameters like weights of testicular and accessory sex organs, epididymal sperm count, serum testosterone and LH & FSH levels, steroidogenic enzymes activities (testicular and adrenal ?5 3ß-Hydroxy Steroid Dehydrogenase & testicular 17ß-Hydroxy Steroid Dehydrogenase) and testicular histoarchitecture, testicular lipid peroxidation, catalase, SOD, serum corticosterone was measured. A significant alteration (P<0.05) has observed after calcium treatment but magnesium has not showed such response in experimental rats.
