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.
