SHATAVARI (Asparagus racemosus) aka - Indian Asparagus, Hundred Roots, Asparagus Roots
Shatavari is perhaps best known as a female rejuvenitive. It is useful for infertility, decreased libido, threatened miscarriage, menopause, and leucorrhea and has the ability to balance pH in the cervical area. Dry membranes, such as those on the vaginal wall, are also brought into balance through the herb’s demulcent action. It both nourishes and cleanses the blood and the female reproductive organs. It is a good food for menopause or for those who have had hysterectomies, as it supplies many female hormones. It nourishes the ovum and increases fertility. Men may benefit from the herb as well in the treatment of impotence and general sexual debility. In addition to its applications for reproductive organs, Shatavari is also quite effective for stomach ulcers, hyperacidity and diarrhea. Dry and irritated membranes in the upper respiratory tract are soothed by Shatavari, making it useful in soothing bronchitis and chronic fevers. It is believed to bring into balance all of the body's fluids.
