Shatavari has numerous benefits unlike any other herb and has been used in Ayurvedic medicine for centuries. It nourishes the body and is especially beneficial for the female reproductive system. When I published a review on Moon Balance, the ingredient Shatavari was on the label. I had never heard of this ingredient before so I decided it would be fun to research it.
So what is Shatavari? Shatavari is from India and is a member of the asparagus family. It’s also known as Asparagus racemosus and is an adaptogenic herb. It can also be found in Africa and Asia flourishing in shady and low altitudes. The tuberous root is the portion that is used to prepare the powder. The rejuvenating tuberous root has a sweet taste combined with a little bitter taste. The roots are the inspriation behind the name shat meaning one hundred and avar meaning below, literally translating to mean the plant that has one hundred roots below ground.
