Ayurveda wisdom & tradition
Botanical name: Asparagus Racemosus
Shatavari (Asparagus racemosus) has been used for centuries in Ayurveda to support the female reproductive system, and as a support for the digestive system, especially in cases of excess Pitta. Sometimes spelled "shatawari," its name is translated as “having one hundred roots” and also referred to as meaning “having one hundred husbands."
Shatavari’s name gives reference to its traditional use as a rejuvenating tonic to help women gracefully transition through various phases of life, including menopause and beyond. However, people of all ages and genders can also benefit from Shatavari.

How to Take Shatavari
Shatavari can be taken as a powder, tablet, or liquid extract. Ayurveda prefers the powder form of herbs because tasting the herb starts the digestive process and sends signals to the body to initiate the body’s own supportive mechanisms.
- Shatavari powder is the most traditional form of taking the herb. It is usually taken with an Anupam (carrier substance) to help bring its effects deeper into the tissue layers. Try it with milk and sugar, honey, or ghee (clarified butter). It is also sometimes cooked into herbal Shatavari ghee for an especially building and nourishing blend.
Do not take with alcohol, other drugs or natural health products with sedative properties. If you are pregnant, consult a health care practitioner prior to use.
Taste profile and effect
Bitter and sweet in taste, Shatavari has a cooling effect on the system, and its unctuous, building nature makes it a great support for anyone looking for a nourishing, grounding effect.

Sustainability of Shatavari
Wild Shatavari historically grew in much greater abundance, but due to increased demand and other factors, Shatavari has become over-harvested—and even endangered—in some parts of the world.
