Health Benefits of Asparagus racemosus
- The Female Reproductive System
The herb is said to possess properties that help nourish, rejuvenate and strengthen the female reproductive organs. Evidence based data suggests that shatavari is beneficial in premenstrual syndrome, fertility issues, uterine bleeding and menopausal symptoms.1 Peer reviewed research has indicated that the herb appears to alleviate inflammation of the reproductive organs and the urinary bladder, moisten dry tissues of the sexual organs, enhance folliculogenesis and ovulation, prepare the womb for conception, prevent miscarriages, increase lactation and normalize the uterus and fluctuating hormones. Its use is also advocated in endometriosis, leucorrhoea and menorrhagia. 2
Ayurvedic literature hails Shatavari as the main rejuvenative tonic for females just as it considers Withania somnifera for males.
Biogetica formulates blends after meticulous research on each natural ingredient and incorporates the best available natural resources so that they work synergistically to bring the body back to balance. Asparagus is an important component of our Female health Protocols such as the Biogetica Freedom kit with Inflammation 30 Formula and Freedom kit with AV VITA F, Reguline & OM 24 EN formula.
- The Male Reproductive System
Although, Withania somnifera is considered a potent male tonic; Asparagus racemosus has also been tested for its aphrodisiac properties to potentially boost male sexual health. Investigations have purported that the herb supports a healthy sperm count, improves sexual debilities like erectile dysfunction and premature ejaculation, increases reproductive fluids, and improves semen quantity and quality.
Biogetica has incorporated Asparagus along with other beneficial ingredients in its male Health Protocols such as the Biogetica Freedom kit with OM 22 Formula and Biogetica Freedom Kit with SS 200 Formula.
- The Immune system of the Body
According to ayurvedic concepts, the body produces a significant liquid called Ojas, which is responsible for energy, vitality, virility and general wellbeing. It influences both mental and physical faculties. Asparagus racemosus is said to build ojas, increase the count of white blood cells, improve immunity, and exert anti-inflammatory effects.
Asparagus has been compounded in our immune boost protocols for reproductive organs such as the Freedom Kit with OM 24 Formula and Salvation kit with Hypericum Mysorense, Alclearize and Homeopathic H factor formula.
- Inhibiting Free Radical Formation
In Ayurveda, Asparagus racemosus has been described as an adaptogenic herb that increases the non-specific resistance of organisms against a variety of adverse biological, chemical, and physical stresses. It is said to possess strong anti-oxidant properties and assists in detoxifying the body of harmful free radicals. Shatavari is also known to help resist stress and enhance longevity.
Since Asparagus is a wonderful adaptogen and anti-oxidant, it is a potent ingredient in our anti-aging protocols ingeniously formulated for both men and women.
- The Nervous System
Several studies have identified anti-stress, anti-depressant, nootropic, and nerve tonic properties in Asparagus racemosus. It is believed that Shatavari is especially useful in calming hypersensitive and inflammed nerves, nourishing and repairing them as well as nourishing, supporting and enhancing functions of the brain. It also potentially exerts a relaxing effect that helps induce normal sleep.
Based on copious amount of research on Asparagus’s nerve benefitting properties, Biogetica doctors have adapted this herb in our Nerve Health Protocols such as the Deliverance Kit with OM13 Formula, Freedom Kit with Pain 10 M Formula, and Optimal Kit with C9 Stressease Formula.
- Respiratory System
Shatavari is traditionally used in enhancing respiratory health since it exerts a cooling and moistening effect soothing dry and inflamed mucous membranes in the respiratory tract. Its immunomodulatory properties help the body improve its defenses against foreign bodies that infiltrate the respiratory tract.
Biogetica has specifically imbibed shatavari in its Respiratory Health Protocol the Freedom Kit with ALB Formula.
- Digestive Health
Clinical evidence has suggested that Shatavari cools and soothes the mucous membranes of the digestive tract thereby alleviating ulcerative disorders.3 The herb is said to possess anti-spasmodic, anti-inflammatory as well as antacid properties, which help in exerting a demulcent effect and improving digestive functions. Study results have also highlighted that shatavari may possess anti-diarrhoeal effects and slow intestinal transit.
Shatavari has also been studied for its benefits in conditions affecting bones, eyes, and circulation. It has an impressive list of well-documented uses and in recent times, scientific research too has been witnessing the multifarious health benefits of this herb.
