Shatavari (Asparagus racemosus, Satavar) is a well known female tonic in Ayurvedic medicine. It has been used for thousands of years in India for treating disorders of female reproductive organs, such as low libido (sex drive), infertility, miscarriage, menopause, leucorrhea, etc.


In Sanskrit, Shatavari means “she who possesses a hundred husbands.” Shatavari is used as an aphrodisiac to increase women’s sex drive and treat the disorders of low libido and loss of libido. Ayurveda believes that shatavari enhances the feelings of spiritual love, and increases Ojas.

As a tonic, shatavari supplies many female hormones and maintains healthy hormonal balance. It has rejuvenative properties, and can be used to treat infertility. It nourishes the ovum, blood and female reproductive organs, and increases fertility. In the Ayurvedic tradition, shatavari is used as a uterine tonic for preventing miscarriage or premature labor.

Shatavari has effects to relieve menstrual pain and control blood loss of menstruation. It can help regulate irregularities in ovulation and menstruation.

As a cooling and soothing herb, shatavari balances pitta dosha. It cools and cleanses blood, relieves hot flashes, night sweats, memory loss, anxiety and dryness, and can help treat menopausal symptoms. Modern studies found that shatavari produces estrogens, and can help women in low estrogen levels.

Shatavari is a sweet and nourishing herb. It is also used in Ayurveda to support normal production of breast milk for nursing mothers. Shatavari promotes the flow of breast milk, and assists in recovery from childbirth.

How to use shatavari:

– Shatavari root powder 1 teaspoon
– Milk 1 cup
– Mix the powder with milk
– Heat milk to warm
– Drink it, twice a day

Shatavari is sold in forms of powder and capsules. You may find it in an Indian health supplement store.
