Shatavari, also known as Asparagus racemosus is known as the “Queen of Herbs” because it promotes love and devotion. It is a cooling, calming, nourishing and purifying herb which has a special affinity with women, though it is also excellent for men.
The name Shatavari comes from an Indian word meaning “a woman possessing a hundred husbands. It is used to maintain and nourish the female reproductive organs and is the main herb, and highly regarded in Ayurvedic medicine for issues connected to women’s fertility, menstrual irregularity and controlling blood loss, menopausal issues, and loss of libido. It acts as a womens’ rejuvenative, helping to balance estrogen, stimulate lactation and prevent miscarriage. For men it is a nutritive tonic similar to ginseng. Because Shatavari is a gentle herb, acting as a systemic tonic and is calming, it is considered, along with Ashwagandha and Brahmi, (or Bacopa) to be excellent for people of all ages.
Shatavari has also been used as a tonic for circulatory, digestive and respiratory organs, ulcers, bronchial infections, diarrhea, rheumatism, diabetes, bleeding ulcers, gastritis, dysentery, dry cough, sore throat, inflammation in the lungs due to dryness and heat, male fertility and impotence, building body mass and muscle tissue, nourishing the blood, the immune system, calming the nerves, and insomnia.
Tattva’s Herbs natural supplements combine the wisdom of Mother Nature with the very latest technology known as supercritical extraction. This state of the art technology delivers a very pure extract that is both full spectrum and extremely concentrated at the same time. It is so pure that you can actually smell the qualities of the original herb in the extract, and you are greeted with this aroma when you open a bottle. It is sweet and powerful. There is simply no other extraction method so effective that you can actually smell the purity, fragrance and essence of the herb. This is a testimony to the great care that goes into the selection of the herbs and the supercritical extraction process itself. To give you an idea of the potency and concentration of the extract, we can often use as much as 200 to 250 pounds of fresh herbs to produce just one pound of supercritical extract. All of the herbs are grown on organic farms and selected with the greatest of care. The supercritical process produces an exceptionally broad representation of the herbs’ active constituents, which oftentimes traditional methods of extraction cannot even begin to extract. Furthermore, the supercritical process does not use any chemical solvents at all. Instead, it utilizes safe and environmentally friendly carbon dioxide, the same carbon dioxide that is found in your sparkling water.
Finally, the supercritical extract, post-supercritical extract (PSE) (a water-soluble extract), and the raw whole herb are combined to create our herbal formula. The finished product is superior in terms of both freshness and breadth of active constituents. It delivers the full spectrum of the herbs with a potency that cannot be surpassed. In addition, all of the herbs are independently tested for heavy metals and other contaminates. The result is an exquisite formula that delivers simplicity, purity and incredible potency all at once.
