Ayurvedic Female Health Support
Product Number AY0036
SITAWARI (or Shaatavari as it is known traditionally) is considered to be a main rejuvenating and endocrine supporting herb for overall female health and vitality in Ayurvedic tradition. The reputed adaptogenic effects of Sitawari may be attributed to concentrations of saponins that are very similar to those found in the more commonly known Ashwagandha. In Sanskrit, Shaatavari means “she who possesses a hundred husbands”, referring to the herb’s one hundred roots. Ayurvedic tradition also uses Sitawari to support the gastrointestinal tract, for its aphrodisiac effects and for general circulatory system support.

Known as Asparagus racemosus, Shatavari is often found growing in the jungles of India as a climbing plant. It is commonly recognized as the woman’s equivalent to Ashwagandha, or “Indian ginseng,” translating to “she who possesses 100 husbands.” Ayurveda strongly recognizes this plant as a female rejuvenative and for its use in a range of female reproductive disorders including decreased libido, cervical pH balance, PMS, menstrual irregularities, and menopausal support.
