Shatavari is a rejuvenating herb that cools the body and strengthens and nourishes the tissues. Traditionally used to maintain the healthy production of female hormones, Shatavari may be translated as “100 spouses,” implying its role in promoting fertility and vitality. As a nutritive tonic it encourages the healthy production of milk in lactating mothers and the healthy production of semen in would be fathers. It is also useful for supporting the menopausal transition. Shatavari supports a healthy immune system and assists in both physical and mental digestion. Its unctuous quality soothes and nurtures membranes of the lungs, stomach, kidneys, and reproductive organs, and gives it a building nature that makes it a great support for anyone looking for a nourishing grounding effect. It’s bitter and sweet taste also has a cooling effect on the system. These combined qualities make it a rasayana (rejuvenative) for the reproductive system, the digestive system (particularly when pitta is involved), and the blood. Sattvic (pure, harmonious) in nature, Shatavari calms the mind and promotes love and devotion.*
