Some history and some curiosities about Shatavari

Shatavari is a very particular plant, whose scientific name is Asparagus Racemosus. it has been used for centuries as an Ayurvedic remedy useful to support the functioning of the reproductive system, in particular the female ones, and the digestive system. The denomination commonly used to identify this plant is a word that derives from the Sanskrit which translated means "to have a hundred roots" or even "to have a hundred husbands".

The second translation certainly alludes to the fact that this healing herb has always been used as a rejuvenating tonic for the female reproductive system but, however, the benefits of this plant can also be found by men of any age and are not limited only to the sexual sphere. Therefore, let's analyze all the main properties of this vegetable widely used in Ayurveda.

Shatavari: from traditional uses to the innovations found by researchers

As we have said, this plant is traditionally used to favour the correct functioning of the reproductive system (male and female) and of the digestive system, but the truth is that the benefits of its consumption are much more amplified. In fact, the researchers found that a treatment based on this herb can stimulate the production of breast milk (immediately after childbirth), prevent female hormonal imbalances and support the immune system.

In addition to this, it is useful to know that studies reveal that the consumption of Shatavari extracts can help the body protect the respiratory tract; may cause an increase in energy, strength and endurance levels; and offer deep nourishment for the cells, tissues and organs of the body to support their healing. In addition, it is worth considering that this plant boasts interesting antioxidant properties.

Therefore, thanks to its extracts we can enjoy remarkable revitalizing effects, a general rejuvenation, a slowing down of the natural cell ageing process, protection from free radicals and, therefore, also valid support in the prevention of even serious diseases such as for example tumours. In practice, it is a herb useful in many ways.

A new healthy lifestyle with the help of Shatavari extracts

This plant can be part of our daily lives in many ways. In fact, it is available on the market in powder form, in the form of tablets or as a liquid extract. Ayurveda experts recommend preferring herbal powder as it seems to have a more immediate and more powerful effect. In this case, you can start the treatment with about a quarter or a half teaspoon of product to add to a glass of hot milk.

Shatavari-based tablets may prove to be an easier and more comfortable choice to take and they too can be dissolved in milk or hot water. The liquid extract is often more convenient, it is even easier to assimilate and can be stored for a long time. The solutions are different and therefore the first step is to try them and choose the one you prefer. The benefits can be seen in the first doses.
