Product Description: pitta and female Rejuvenation
Shatavari Rasayan 200 grams
Shatavari is also known as Asparagus racemosus. It’s a member of the asparagus family. It’s also an adaptogenic herb. Adaptogenic herbs are said to help your body cope with physical and emotional stress.
Shatavari is considered a general health tonic to improve vitality, making it a staple in ayurvedic medicine.
Shatavari benefits for women include increased breast milk production, nourishing the reproductive organs, strengthening female fertility, and providing nourishment to the mother and fetus during pregnancy. It has even been linked to stabilizing one’s mood and emotions during the menstrual cycle.
Antioxidants help prevent free-radical cell damage. They also battle oxidative stress, which causes disease. Shatavari is high in saponins. Saponins are compounds with antioxidant abilities.
The term Shatavari can be broken down into two Sanskrit terms, “shat” meaning one hundred and “avar” meaning below. Thus, Shatavari literally translates to ‘one hundred roots’. If you have ever seen the amazing root system of this plant, it is easy to see how it got its name! Within these strong and abundant roots is where the medicine lies. Another translation of Shatavari is “who possesses one hundred husbands.” This herb has been known to rejuvenate the female reproductive system so powerfully that one could theoretically reproduce with one hundred husbands–a folkloric testament to the potency of the Shatavari herb!
As Dr. David Frawley explains in The Yoga of Herbs, Shatavari can increase breast milk production and nourish the ovum. It has both a nourishing and purifying effect on the female reproductive organs and is suggested to be used throughout the many phases of womanhood. Shatavari has traditionally been used in Ayurveda to strengthen female fertility and can also be used during pregnancy to provide nourishment to both the mother and fetus. Shatavari can even help stabilize a woman’s body and emotions throughout her moon or menstrual cycle.
When a woman transitions into perimenopause, one of the common effects on the body is a decrease in estrogen. Shatavari can support women through perimenopause as well as menopause because it contains phytoestrogens which are the precursor to estrogen. Studies show that phytoestrogens may reduce hot flashes, stabilize mood and also help maintain normal bone density, making it a terrific herb to take for osteoporosis prevention. Lastly, for any woman who have undergone a hysterectomy, Shatavari, with its abundance of phytoestrogens, can help to balance and restore hormone levels.
Traditional Ayurvedic Methods of Taking Shatavari

Contraindications For Taking Shatavari
Ayurveda does not recommend intaking Shatavari if there is high ama, or toxins, in the body. It is also contraindicated if one is experiencing a Kapha imbalance or excess congestion. Being a member of the asparagus family, Shatavari has a diuretic effect and should be used with caution for people who are taking diuretic medicine. Lastly, if one is sensitive to phytoestrogens or has an estrogen-sensitive tumour, Shatavari is also contraindicated.
