What Shatavari is and Why You Should be Taking it
Shatavarti is an herb that is in the asparagus family. It’s known to increase vitality and is an overall health tonic. It is sourced from the tropical areas of India. Shatavari is beneficial in regards to menstruation and keeping cycles consistent as well as relieving common period symptoms such as bloating, irritability, and PMS as well. (The Home of Ayurveda, 2013) It’s also useful in getting rid of morning sickness that is prevalent during pregnancy. Because shatavarti is an adaptogenic herb, it reduces the negative effects of stress on the nervous system. Research illustrates that the herb may also help with heartburn, indigestion, diarrhea, inflammation of the urinary tract, irritable bowel syndrome, and immune system response.
