Himalaya Herbal Healthcare Shatavari Female Tonic - 60 Caplets
In the traditional Indian system of healthcare, Ayurveda, Shatavari (Asparagus racemosus ) is history's main herb for female support.

In Sanskrit, Shatavari means "she who possesses a hundred husbands," implying its ability to help support fertility and vitality. Its principle constituents include saponins, alkaloids, proteins, and tannins. The plant contains triterpene saponins called Shatavarin I-IV, which support the body's own natural production of estrogen.
In addition to its famous reputation as a female tonic, researchers at the Interdisciplinary School of Health Sciences, University of Pune, India also found Shatavari to be supportive of normal lymphocyte levels and normal immune system function. They also noted its long use in traditional Ayurveda to support normal digestive function. J Ethnopharmacol. 2009 Jan 21;121(2):241-7.
Shatavari has enjoyed a rich and varied history of use through the centuries. Shatavari tubers were once candied and eaten as a sweetmeat. Nursing mothers ate Shatavari because it supported the normal production of breast milk. Some cultures drank fresh juice of the root mixed with honey. Still others used it topically in medicinal oils for its soothing and cooling properties.

The many different herbs used in Himalaya Herbal Healthcare's scientific product line are also used in India's ancient, traditional system of medicine, Ayurveda.
The word Ayurveda comes from the Sanskrit root words ayur (meaning "life") and veda (meaning "to know"). Literally, Ayurveda means "the science of life." It is a system of medicine dating back over 4,000 years.
Ayurveda had a profound, far-reaching influence on Traditional Chinese Medicine and the healthcare systems of many other countries and cultures. Ayurveda believes that five great elements make up the universe and the human body: earth, water, fire, air and space.
It also believes that humans possess a unique constellation of body types or doshas: vata (wind/spirit/air), pitta (bile), and kapha (phlegm). Each represents a divine force, and Ayurveda seeks to bring them into balance through proper diet, herbal treatment and spiritual practice.
Since Himalaya Herbal Healthcare formulas are very science-based and appropriate for all body types ("tri-doshic" or "non-dosha-specific"), and since their formulas require no Ayurvedic knowledge to be used successfully, they do not consider themselves to be "an Ayurvedic line" in the classic sense of the word.
