Shatavari is an herb that helps lactating mothers by improving prolactin hormone production and ensuring optimum breastfeeding. The herb also assists in post-delivery recovery, overcoming fatigue, and promoting physical and mental health. Shatavari strengthens the reproductive system in Ayurveda.
It is used in Ayurveda to balance pita and vata. It has a cooling effect in the system, and its unctuous (oily), building nature makes it a great support for anyone looking for a nourishing, grounding effect. These combined qualities make it a rasayana rejuvenative for the reproductive system (particularly female), the digestive system (particularly when pita is involved), and the blood.
