In the traditional Indian system of healthcare‚ Ayurveda‚ Shatavari (Asparagus racemosus) is history's main herb for female support. It supports healthy and normal blood flow through the reproductive system and it also supports normal hormone utilization and blood hormone levels.
In Sanskrit‚ Shatavari means "she who possesses a hundred husbands‚" implying its ability to help support fertility and vitality. Its principle constituents include saponins‚ alkaloids‚ proteins‚ and tannins. The plant contains triterpene saponins called Shatavarin I-IV‚ which support the body's own natural production of estrogen.
In addition to its famous reputation as a female tonic‚ researchers at the Interdisciplinary School of Health Sciences‚ University of Pune‚ India also found Shatavari to be supportive of normal lymphocyte levels and normal immune system function. They also noted its long use in traditional Ayurveda to support normal digestive function. J Ethnopharmacol. 2009 Jan 21;121(2):241-7.
Shatavari has enjoyed a rich and varied history of use through the centuries. Shatavari tubers were once candied and eaten as a sweetmeat. Nursing mothers ate Shatavari because it supported the normal production of breast milk. Some cultures drank fresh juice of the root mixed with honey. Still others used it topically in medicinal oils for its soothing and cooling properties.

Good support for women!
I started taking Himalaya Shatavari a week ago. I feel much more balanced already. As a woman in her mid-thirties who practices yoga and wants to stay fit for a lifetime I am interested in making sure that my hormones and immune system are in balance and I have been looking for a product that would give me this support naturally and sustainably. Shatavari meets both these needs since it is natural and it is also an adaptogen (restores balance to the neuro-endocrine system). An interesting observation I have made is that my skin looks great and feels smoother and Shatavari is known to be good for the skin if applied topically but consuming Shatavari aids in digestion as well and we all know that proper digestion supports nutrients distribution throughout the body. I appreciate feeling better and as a bonus looking beautiful! Thanks for making this product available to women!
Size and shape of the caplet make it easy to swallow. Caplet dissolves pretty quickly (I did my own checking by placing it in a small glass of water to make sure it does dissolve). Quantity and price per bottle is very competitive for Shatavari. It
√ I would recommend this item to a friend.
