In Ayurveda, Shatavari is considered as one of the most important herbs for women and is referred to as ‘queen of herbs’. This is because it has excellent phytoestrogenic properties and is a good source of naturally occurring female sex hormones. Shatavari is enriched with calcium, vitamin B, Folic Acid, Fibre, Potassium and Zinc. It is beneficial for the entire process of reproduction in humans, balancing the female hormones to regulate menstruation and menopause.
Most immportantly as lactation is an integral part of female fertility and health. Sometimes, it happens that nursing mothers cannot produce enough breast milk after childbirth. Such a consequence can be prevented if taking shatavari, best to have during the last trimester to prepare for childbirth. It is highly recommended for the mother to use post-partum to enhance breast milk supply, enhancing lactation and nourish the reproductive system after childbirth. I have seen womens supply double after a few hours of taking this herb. This is a must have post natally or to have onhand incase your supply is lacking qualitiy or quantitie.
It is effective in creating balance with any reproductive system issues including painful periods, amenorrhea, dysmenorreah, Ovarian Cysts, Fibroids and Endometriosis.
Shatavari increases fertility in women and helps her in conception by balancing the hormones and tonifing the ovaries and nourishing the environment for ovulation and conception.
