Long Description

Shatavari is an interesting herb that belongs to the asparagus family. Shatavari simply translates to ‘she who possesses one hundred husbands’, illustrating its effects as a women's general and reproductive tonic. 

Shatavari is thought to be the main rejuvenating herb for the female form, and is highly effective in problems related to the female reproductive system as well as being a vital ally in increasing longevity, imparting immunity, improving mental function, vigour and adding vitality to the body. The major active constituents of Shatavari are galactose, arabinose, steroidal glycosides & steroidal saponins - Shatavarins I to IV being highly medicinal. 

Supporting women through every stage of their lives, Shatavari's main constituents, the steroidal saponins Shatavarins I to IV suggest its use as an oestrogen regulator. This modulation helps to regulate menstrual cycles, manage PMS symptoms, alleviate menstrual cramps and control the amount of blood loss. Shatavari greatly helps with fluid retention and may also be helpful with the uncomfortable bloating often suffered before and sometimes after menstruation. 

Shatavari also nourishes the female reproductive system, helping to relieve menopausal symptoms such as vaginal dryness, hot flashes and insomnia. This phytoestrogen-rich herb naturally helps to balance the hormones responsible for many of the more unpleasant symptoms associated with this change in life, as well as stimulates and balances the production of happy hormones; endorphins, serotonin and dopamine - meaning it can greatly reduce mood swings, irritability and menopause induced depression. 

Shatavarin IV has been seen to display significant activity as an inhibitor of core golgi enzymes transferase in cell free assays and also exhibits immuno-modulation activity against specific T- dependent antigens in immune compromised beings. 

Shatavari is also a great herb to use to increase libido( as it is a powerful aphrodisiac), milk secretion during lactation, assist with endometritis and endometriosis, infertility, strengthen cardiac impulse and reducing heart rate and blood pressure.
