Ayurvediq Wellness Shatavari is an excellent tonic for women, helping to ease uncomfortable PMS, menopuase symptoms such as hot flushes & night sweats, and dryness in the body. However, it is equally effective for men, as it can increase the production of testosterone and has powerful spermatogenic properties.
A member of the asparagus family, Shatavari thrives in many parts of tropical India and Asia. It is a thorny plant with thin leaves, white flowers, red berries, and, most importantly, a vast network of tuberous roots. This is the part of the plant that is used for food and as an herbal remedy in Ayurveda.
Shatavari's benefits for women stem from the fact that it is considered to be the supreme women's tonic and is used as a natural hormone regulator. The Sanskrit name Shatavari is translated to “curer of a hundred diseases” as well as "a plant with 100 roots”.
Shatavari powder contains the natural hormone phytoestrogen, which has renowned health benefits for women. As a sweet, cooling, nourishing, and soothing herb, it is considered by Ayurvedic practitioners to be the perfect energetic balance to clear some of the uncomfortable menopausal hot flushes, night sweats, and dryness in the body.
