Shatavari is one of the most beneficial adaptogens known to nature. Adaptogens are herbs that are said to help your body cope with emotional and physical stress. It grows mainly in India, Sri Lanka and the Himalayas. It plays an important role in Ayurveda, where it is believed to be a natural remedy supporting the female hormonal balance, bringing vitality and longevity, as well improving lactation and acting like a natural aphrodisiac. The word “shatavari” means “the one with a hundred husbands”, and it relates to female fertility and sexual energy. Shatavari may be one of nature’s best kept anti-ageing secrets, due to the presence of antioxidants such as saponins, racemofuran, asparagamine A and racemosol.
