In India, Shatavari (Wild Asparagus) has been used for thousands of years as a rejuvenating tonic for the female system. From daughters, to mothers, to grandmothers Shatavari balances a woman during her cycles through life; offering soothing, restorative relief from PMS, menstrual and menopausal imbalances, while helping to gently tone and strengthen her reproductive system.
Shatavari translates into “she who has a 1000 husbands” and is said to give a woman the reproductive strength to have 1000 husbands!
Shatavari is one of the most nourishing and wholesome sources of phytoestrogens, and parallels the actions of dong quai, wild yam, raspberry leaf and evening primrose.
Along with Ashwagandha and Guduchi, Shatavari is one of the best herbs for increasing ojas, the density of core vitality, the essence responsible for the basis of immunity and also the fundamental support of reproductive function.
The sweet roots of this wild asparagus are as delicious as the sprouts of its cultivated cousin, making this valuable herb a bonafide “superfood.”
Traditionally it is one of the most effective herbs for supporting both male and female reproductive health, with its dozen or so phytoestrogenic molecules being just one of about ten different supporting mechanisms.
