Shatavari is used to mitigate internal heat for men and women. It is highly appreciated during all stages of a woman’s life. It is said to strengthen a woman to the point where she is capable of producing thousands of healthy ova.
Shatavari has its highest use among menopausal women who suffer from low estrogen levels. Menopausal symptoms are relieved with this plant. A study performed in several Ayurvedic centers in the United States and in Nepal by Shrestha et. al. in 2003, showed the effect of estrogenic activity of Shatavari. Shatavari helped in managing menopausal syndrome symptoms like hot flashes, insomnia, night sweats and dry vagina through its phytoestrogen component. In this study more than 80% of the participants reported positive effects such as better sleep, less hotness, and minimizing of hot flashes.
