‘Shatavari’, the Sanskrit name for Asparagus racemosus, implies ‘a woman fit to wed a hundred suitors’! The drug Shatavari has a well-deserved reputation for improving fertility and libido in women. Recent studies have identified the plant’s horde of phytoestrogens – biochemicals with estrogen-mimicking properties.
Pitta-Kapha imbalance in the body manifests as excess heat, viscidity and body odor. The person is constantly overheated, fatigued and given to anxiety and anger. In the female body, this gives rise to chronic genito-urinary infection and discharge.
Shatavari, luxuriously cooling and soothing, exquisitely balances the deranged Vata and pitta elements in the body. It is beneficial in managing all kinds of pathologies affecting the female reproductive system, genitalia and hormonal function.
