Shatavari is an adaptogenic plant recommended to soothe pre-menstrual syndrome by acting on pain, irritability, water retention, sore breasts, headaches, etc. It is also useful during the period of pregnancy: it promotes fertility and the production of breast milk.
It also acts on vaginal dryness and desire, thus promoting a fulfilling sex life. Finally, it has a decisive action in periods of pre-menopause and menopause: it soothes hot flashes, nervousness, irritability and changing moods.
Shatavari is a climbing herbaceous plant native to ancient India. It has been revered as an essential longevity tonic for thousands of years. Shatavari is a Rasayana in Ayurveda, that is to say a rejuvenating and regenerating plant. Shatavari literally translates to "she who has a hundred husbands" because it is a sexual tonic that also promotes fertility. Ayurveda considers Shatavari as the privileged ally of women, to contribute to their well-being at all stages and cycles of their life, from puberty to menopause. It is the plant for women par excellence because it acts on the entire female genital system by stabilizing and strengthening it.
