Shatavari, also known as satavari, satavar, or Asparagus racemosus, is said to promote fertility and have a range of health benefits, particularly for the female reproductive system.
It is considered adaptogenic, which means it may improve resistance to stress and help regulate the body’s systems.
Shatavari has been shown to have the following health benefits:
Enhancing the reproductive health of women
The most common traditional use of shatavari is to treat female health conditions, specifically reproductive problems.
Reducing menopause symptoms
Recent research suggests a combination of herbal medicines may be able to reduce the symptoms of menopause, in line with its traditional use for female reproductive conditions.
Benefits of antioxidants
The antioxidants in the body protect the body against free radicals, which cause cell damage and can lead to diseases, including cancer. Another cause of disease is oxidative stress, which is also combated by antioxidants.
Effects of anti-anxiety
Anxiety and depression can also be treated with shatavari supplements. No research has investigated these effects in humans, though studies suggest that the plant may have these effects in rats.
There are other possible benefits as well. Shatavari is credited with treating and preventing many more conditions, although further study is needed.
Other conditions shatavari may help improve include:
Bladder and kidney stones
Diabetes and diabetic neuropathy
Irritable Bowel Syndrome ( IBS)
