Shatavri is also known as Wild Asparagus Root, or Asparagus Racemosus. In their book “The Yoga of Herbs” Dr. Vasant Lad and Dr. David Frawley say that as a Sanskrit word, it Shatavri could be translated to mean “she who possesses a hundred husbands.” This herb got the name because it is said that it makes a woman’s reproductive system so strong. What makes Shatavri so potent is that it is rich in natural phyto-estrogens, which are great at helping women through hormonal changes. It can be used at any age, and is particularly effective for easing the symptoms of PMS and menopause.
Organic India has Shatavri in their “Goddess Set” which also includes Tulsi (Holy Basil) for stress relief and a healthy immune function, and Bowelcare, which helps nutrient absorption and healthy elimination. When taken together, these supplements naturally assist a woman’s body to restore and maintain optimal health.
