The name “Shatavari” translates to “She who possesses 100 husbands.” This has also been translated to mean “She who is acceptable to many.” These names refer to the Ayurvedic use of Shatavari as a women’s tonic. Two main Ayurvedic texts, the Charak Samhita and the Ashtang Hridyam, note the herb as an ingredient in female health formulas.
Shatavari is classified as a “rasayana,” or rejuvenating herb.
Shatavari Body and Mind Benefits
Researchers have explored many aspects of Shatavari’s characteristics, including the herb’s ability to support a healthy response to inflammation and reduce coughs. Science also confirms what the ancients knew — that Shatavari is an adaptogenic herb, meaning that it supports the body’s healthy response to environmental, physical, and emotional stressors.
Research has also confirmed that Shatavari reduced uterine spasms, or cramps, in animals, echoing the Ayurvedic practice of prescribing Shatavari to women for monthly discomfort. Other studies show that Shatavari has an “immunomodulating” effect, meaning that the herb supports an optimal immune response without artificially “boosting” immune activity in the short term.
