Asparagus is perhaps best known as a female rejuvenative. According to Ayurvedic texts, Shatavari means ďone who possesses hundred husbandsĒ. The root contains compounds called steroidal glycosides (asparagoside) that directly affect hormone production and may very well influence emotions. It is useful for infertility, decreased libido, threatened miscarriage, menopause, leucorrhoea, menstrual cramps and has the ability to balance pH in the cervical area. Dry membranes, such as those on the vaginal wall, are also brought into balance through the herbs demulcent action. It tones, cleanses, nourishes, and strengthens the female reproductive organs and so is traditionally used to control the symptoms of PMS, including breast tenderness and abdominal bloating, amenorrhoea, dysmenorrhoea, leucorrhoea and menopause. It is also useful in pelvic inflammatory disease like endometriosis. It also supports deeper tissue and builds blood and so it helps to remove infertility, prepare the womb for conception, prevent miscarriage and acts as a post-partum tonic where it helps to increase lactation and normalise the uterus and the changing hormones. So many of these benefits abound because Asparagus contains phytoestrogens, hormones that normalise estrogen levels and also play an important role in preserving womenís long term health. Clinical studies suggest that plant estrogenís are better than drugs for hormone balancing since they do not produce negative side effects such as uterine cancer. This gentle herb will promote an easier balanced life. It is proved that it increases milk production in lactating women.
Men may benefit from the herb as well in the treatment of impotence, spermatorrhoea, and general and sexual debility. In addition to itís applications for reproductive organs, Asparagus is also quite effective for stomach ulcers, hyperacidity and diarrhoea. Dry and irritated membranes in the upper respiratory tract are soothed by this herb making it useful in cases of bronchitis and chronic fevers. It is believed to bring into balance all of the bodyís fluids.
