Shatavari - It Does More Than Just Boosting Your Sexual Health

Shatavari is best known for its wondrous effects as an aphrodisiac. However, there are several benefits of this root that extend beyond the female and male reproductive system. Let’s take a look at how Shatavari is good for the entire body.

It pacifies Pitta:

An aggravated pitta can cause the digestive tract to overheat, leading to hyperacidity and peptic ulcers. Shatavari’s soothes the stomach by coating the mucous membranes and also helping the intestines cope with the excess acids being produced.

It soothes the Lungs:

With the amount of pollution in our environment, our lungs tend to become dry and overheated. A decoction of shatavari, licorice, vasaka, and a little neem is great at moistening the lungs and pacifying the excess pitta in them.

It calms the Majja Dhatu:

Excess Vata in the majja dhatu (nervous system) causes the prana (life flow) to become irregular and erratic. This leads to disruptions in the mind that can be calmed by shatavari. It is also believed that shatavari’s influence in the nervous system stimulates the feelings of love and devotion.
