Shatavari (Asparagus racemosa)

Shatavari has been used in Ayurvedic medicine for centuries as a traditional rejuvenation tonic to nourish and restore the reproductive and digestive systems.

A member of the asparagus family, it is best known for its affinity with female reproduction. Further, it supports women of all ages to gracefully transition through the natural phases of womanhood by balancing hormones, regulating the menstrual cycle, supporting breast milk production and relieving menopausal symptoms.

It may also work as an aphrodisiac for both men and women, balancing hormones and functions.

Further, it demonstrates a soothing effect on the digestive tract and may increase gastric motility. A potent immune stimulator, it also enhances the body’s ability to resist disease, fight infection and aid in recovery.
