About Shatavari

Shatavari, also known as satavari, satavar, or Asparagus racemosus is said to promote fertility and have a range of health benefits, particularly for the female reproductive system.

The herb is thought to be adaptogenic, which means that it may help to regulate the body’s systems and improve resistance to stress.

Benefits

Improving female reproductive health

Perhaps the most common traditional use of shatavari, or A. racemosus, is to treat female health conditions, specifically reproductive disorders.

Reducing symptoms of menopause

In line with its traditional use as a treatment for female reproductive conditions, recent research suggests that a combination of herbal medicines, including A. racemosus, may reduce the symptoms of menopause.

Antioxidant effects

Antioxidants protect the body from harm caused by free radicals, which can damage cells and lead to the development of diseases, including cancer. Antioxidants also fight against oxidative stress, another cause of disease.

Anti-anxiety effects

Shatavari supplements have also traditionally been used to combat anxiety and depression.

Breast-feeding and pregnancy

A substance that boosts milk production during breast-feeding is called a galactagogue, and shatavari is commonly used for this purpose.

Shatavari root extract may help to relieve coughs.

Results of earlier studies involving mice and rats suggest that shatavari may have additional health benefits, though it is unclear whether humans will experience similar effects.

Benefits observed in animals include:

Lowering blood sugar.
Relieving coughs.
Treating diarrhea.
Improving gastric ulcers.

Dosages

Shatavari can be taken as a powder, tablet, or liquid. The usual dose of shatavari tablets is 500 milligrams, and a person may take this up to twice a day. A liquid dose of shatavari extract is usually diluted in water or juice and ingested up to three times a day.
