Ashoka is Ayurvedic medicine's foremost uterine tonic and has many traditional uses that help support a healthy female reproductive system. Its name literally means 'remover of sorrow', attesting to its ability to promote health and healing. It has been used for thousands of years to treat excessive uterine bleeding, dysmenorrhea, depression and bleeding hemorrhoids.
It is said to have a stimulating effect on the endometrium that is, the mucuous membrance lining the uterus. Ashoka soothes the nerves and promotes uterine comfort while helping to promote healthy ovarian and endometrial tissue.
Here is a link on research done at the dept. of Gynecology at Manipal University, which shows that an "overload" of iron causes an inflammatory response which may aggravate the lining of the uterus.
This research from the Journal of Chemical and Pharmaceutical Research, documents this use and many others of Ashoka. http://jocpr.com/first-issue/JOCPR-6.pdf
Shatavari is highly appreciated in Ayurveda, due to its potential to maintain health, not only menopausal health, but health during all stages of a woman’s life. Ayurvedic texts say that shatavari strengthens a woman to the point where she is capable of producing thousands of healthy ova. Long before current studies were published, the great commentator Pandit Hem Raj Sharma, in the Kashyap Samhita, clearly states that shatavari promotes maternal health. In particular, he noted the use of shatavari as a galactagogue (enhancing breast milk secretion in lactating mothers). As such, it indirectly promotes the infant’s health.
Shatavari helps to release heat in the body. 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.
