What is Shatavari and how do I take it?
Shatavari (Asparagus racemosus) is nature’s gut-friendly, chemical-free answer to female hormonal imbalance. Read more about Shatavari here. Our wellness supplement is a premium tincture that extracts the pure herb into medical-grade alcohol to provide the fastest, most efficient results; it’s absorbed into the system more quickly than powders or tablets.
Shatavari isn’t just for women. In the Ayurvedic system it is used to support a healthy gut, heart, and immune system.1https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/29904061/ After over 6,000 years of traditional use, scientists are now discovering that Shatavari is rich in polyphenols and saponins that stimulate the in-built antioxidant/antiinflammatory response in human cells for both males and females. Additionally, Shatavari has also been studied clinically as a performance-enhancing supplement, benefitting muscular strength and endurance in men.
Recommended dosage: 1 ml (15 – 20 drops) in 200 ml of water, 3 times daily.
Asparagus allergies. If you’re allergic to asparagus, avoid Shatavari powder.
Changes in oestrogen. Shatavari contains phytoestrogens. Phytoestrogens can change the oestrogen level in your body. This may be helpful for certain conditions, but can worsen other conditions such as uterine fibroids. Read more here.
Proceed with caution if you’re taking other medications, and always check with your GP or consultant first.
Health benefits of Shatavari
Shatavari is a species of asparagus plant that has been used for many centuries in Indian Ayurvedic medicine to promote fertility and provide a range of health benefits, particularly for the female reproductive system.2https://www.medicalnewstoday.com/articles/322043#uses-of-shatavari A review of studies published in Biomedicine and Pharmacotherapy in 2018 suggests that this plant may improve conditions such as hormonal imbalances and polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS).3https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/29635127/
Recent research also suggests that a combination of herbal medicines including shatavari may reduce the symptoms of menopause.4https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/abs/pii/S2210803318300010
Shatavari supplements have traditionally been used to combat anxiety and depression.5https://www.medicalnewstoday.com/articles/322043#uses-of-shatavari
What is a herbal tincture?
Tinctures are concentrated herbal extracts made by soaking some part of a plant in alcohol, which works to pull out or “extract” the active ingredients in the plant parts, concentrating them as a liquid. This liquid can then be consumed by adding 15-20 drops into a small amount of water.
Tinctures have been around for millennia and are a key component of traditional herbal medicine. Tinctures make it easy to consume the natural health-boosting chemicals found in some plants. An estimated 80% of the world’s population relies on tinctures for at least some of their healthcare needs.
Our premium herbal tinctures are made right here in the UK, by soaking one part Siberian Ginseng root in three parts 25% alcohol.
We use medical-grade alcohol which is grain-derived, pure 95.5% ethanol with a distilled water 4.5% additional, adhering to the British and European pharmacopoeia monograph specification. It is approved for use in medicine production and perfectly safe for human consumption.
What is an adaptogen?
Shatavari is considered an adaptogen, which is a herb that improves an individual’s ability to cope with stress and to promote resilience, i.e., supporting your ability to bounce back after a stressful event.6https://www.medicalnewstoday.com/articles/322043#uses-of-shatavari
Ideally, an adaptogen should: a) decrease stress-induced damage, b) be safe and produce a beneficial effect even if the number of administrations is more than required, c) be devoid of any negative effects such as withdrawal syndromes and d) not influence the normal body functions more than necessary.
