The ayurvedic drug, Shatvari Kalpa mainly composed of the powdered roots of A, racemosus is reported to posses nervine tonic, immuno-modulant and galactogogue properties. The general tonic effect of the drug on sportsmen athletes was clinically evaluated. IT was found to produce mild anabolic and tonic affect, producing increase in body weight, skin fold thickness, and serum cholesterol and Hb%.

Asparagus is regarded as the most potent female health tonic. Shatavari (asparagus) tones, cleanses, nourishes, and strengthens the female reproductive organs and so is traditionally used for PMS, amenorrhea, dysmenorrhea, menopause and pelvic inflammatory disease (PID) like endometriosis.

It also supports deeper tissue and builds blood and so it helps to get rid of infertility, prepare the womb for conception, averts miscarriage and acts as a post-partum tonic where it helps to increase lactation and regularize the uterus and the changing hormones

Many of these benefits flourish because Shatavari contains phyto-estrogens, hormones that regularize estrogen levels and also play a significant role in preserving women's long term health. Clinical studies propose that plant estrogens are better than drugs for hormone balancing since they do not produce negative side effects such as uterine cancer. This calming herb i.e. Shatavari will promote an easier balanced life.
