Product Description

Shatavari is a member of the asparagus family, native to India containing woody stems, needle-like leaves and small white flowers. Shatavari has been traditionally used for thousands of years in a practice of medicine known as Ayurveda. Shatavari is believed to be especially beneficial for strengthening and improving the female systems and balancing hormones related to the female body, but has benefits for men as well.

Immune support
Shatavari is believed to offer powerful support to the immune system, which may benefit overall health and well-being. One study suggested that the use of shatavari may contribute to an increase in the levels of immune cells in the body and may help to promote more rapid response of these cells to foreign pathogens and infection.

Adhesions
Shatavari is believed to increase the level of phagocytic activity of macrophages, which may help to reduce the presence and severity of adhesions within the abdomen. Some experts speculate that this increase in activity could help to reduce and repair the damage caused by adhesions related to reproductive surgeries, such as cesareans and fibroid removal, and reproductive conditions, such as endometriosis, blocked fallopian tubes and ovarian cysts.

Diuretic
Shatavari may help to prevent fluid retention, especially around the time of menstruation. This fluid retention could lead to bloating, discomfort and cramping in the pelvic region. By promoting the release of fluids, these symptoms may be reduced.

Female fertility
Shatavari may help promote female fertility in numerous ways. Shatavari is believed to promote the production of healthy cervical mucous, which transports the sperm through the cervix and into the uterus, as well as promotes more comfortable sexual intercourse by reducing friction and resistance. Shatavari is also believed to contain steroidal-saponins, which may assist in the regulation of estrogen, helping to promote regular, healthy reproductive cycles in women.

Menopause
Shatavari has been used traditionally to alleviate the symptoms associated with menopause. Shatavari is believed to assist in the regulation of hormones that contribute to menopause-related symptoms, such as hot flashes, cold sweats, irritability, breast pain and cramping. Shatavari is also believed to prevent vaginal dryness, a common problem among menopausal women that may make sexual intercourse unpleasant and even painful.

Sexual performance
Shatavari has long been believed to improve sexual performance and desire in both men and women. Shatavari is believed to have an aphrodisiac effect on both sexes, increasing desire and improving performance, while offering an increase in energy and stamina.

Gastrointestinal health
Due to its soothing nature, shatavari is also believed to be highly effective in the treatment of stomach ulcers, excessive acids in the gastrointestinal tracts and diarrhea. Shatavari may assist in the treatment of these conditions due to its unique ability to promote the healthy production of mucous by the mucous membranes. Shatavari is believed to contain isoflavones, soluble fibers and complex sugars which may promote better digestion and prevent heartburn.

Respiratory health
Because shatavari is soothing and calming in nature, it may be beneficial for use during times of respiratory illness. Shatavari has been traditionally used as an herbal remedy for respiratory discomfort caused by colds, flus and allergies. Shatavari is commonly used for bronchitis and dry coughs.

Breast milk production
Shatavari is believed to have a powerful effect on a lactating woman's milk supply. Shatavari is believed to have a significant effect on the production of the hormone prolactin, a hormone directly related to the production of milk within the breasts and the development of milk-producing cells and tissues within the breasts. Because of the effect shatavari is believed to have on prolactin levels, shatavari may be especially helpful for women suffering from low prolactin levels or low milk supply due to inadequate prolactin levels.

Contraindications
Individuals who have a history of allergic reactions to any type of asparagus should exercise caution when using shatavari. Individuals who suffer from cancers or conditions related to excess prolactin levels should speak to a qualified healthcare provider before using shatavari.
