Today I thought I’d share with you the amazing benefits and actions of one of my favourite women’s herbs – Shatavari.
“Capable Of A Hundred Husbands…”
Shatavari is a traditional Indian (Ayurvedic) herb and is often referred to as the ‘Queen of Herbs’ because it is said to promote love and devotion. In Hindu the word Shatavari literally translates as “capable of a hundred husbands”. It is traditionally used throughout a woman’s entire reproductive life cycle because of its cleansing, nourishing, soothing and strengthening effects on the female reproductive system. It is especially effective for low libido at all stages and ages but has the added benefit of boosting the supply of female hormones that usually become deficient during menopause (and for women who have had hysterectomies). Shatavari also is used to soothe vaginal dryness, another typical symptom of the natural ageing process
The Queen Of Herbs
Shatavari (Asparagus racemosus) is a woody climber that grows throughout the tropical and sub-tropical parts of India and Bangladesh. The word asparagus originates from the Greek word for stalk or shoot, and relates to the appearance of the plant which has a short root with numerous finger-like succulent tubers coming off it. There are over 300 species of asparagus, and Shatavari (Asparagus racemosus) is not to be confused with the commonly consumed vegetable asparagus, which is Asparagus officinalis.
Reclaim Your Female Mojo
The wisdom and traditional knowledge gained from the history of Shatavari use in Ayurvedic medicine has shown the beneficial effects this herb can provide for females all over the world.
Which is why we include this as our premier herb in our “Power & Passion” packs for women. Not only is it a great support for a flagging libido it also assists with all areas of the female reproductive system acting as a tonic as well as assisting with menopausal symptoms.
Highly regarded in Ayurveda as an adaptogen herb and nerve tonic for women, Shatavari works to support general wellbeing and assist with lowered energy.
