Organic Shatavari is an Ancient Ayurvedic Herb used for
Centuries to Support Women’s Health
Shatavari (A. racemosus) has a long history as being a powerful medicinal herb.
Dating back as much as 5,000 years, Shatavari is part of a small group of ancient Ayurvedic herbs as a well-known Ayurvedic Rasayana.
Rasayana is a term that in early Ayurvedic medicine means the science of lengthening lifespan.
A member of the asparagus family, the Shatavari plant is uniquely characterized as a clustered group of roots with small white flowers. These roots have been used in Ayurvedic medicine for centuries and are largely considered to have supportive properties for the female reproductive system.
Shatavari is also considered an adaptogen herb and has many more traditional uses, such as anti-aging, immunity, improving mental function, vigor and vitality. Additionally, Shatavari has been used to relieve nervous disorders, inflammation, and neuropathy.
Just like other adaptogenic herbs, this means that Shatavari may help fight fatigue and stress, boost one’s immune system, and may support healthy hormone levels. Having such a wide range of possible traditional remedies is probably why it has been used for many 1,000’s of years.
As an adaptogen herb, Shatavari may have the ability to regulate stress levels and support the proper function of the adrenals. Because of this, Shatavari may be able to support sustained energy levels throughout the day and promote sound restful sleep at night. Helping to balance, restore and protect the body, as an adaptogen, Shatavari doesn’t have a specific action as it helps the body respond to any influence or stressor which may help to support and normalize physiological functions.
Shatavari has a long traditional history of strengthening female fertility, supporting the reproductive system, and promoting healthy lactation
The leading traditional herbal remedy for women, Shatavari is said to have a nourishing and rejuvenating effect on the female hormonal and reproductive system. It is said to be very helpful in alleviating menstrual irregularities, pain, and hormonal imbalance while also supporting digestion, immunity, and resilience to stress.
Shatavari may optimize health and vitality for women of all ages.
While there are many ways to consume Shatavari, ancient Ayurvedic medicine promoted a spoonful of Shatavari powder mixed with warm water to make a soothing tea to calm the mind, support the hormonal system and boost a woman’s reproductive health.
