Shatavari in Ayurveda:
Shatavari has been mentioned in Ayurvedic texts like the Charak Samhita, Susruta Samhita, and Astanga Samgraha. Pandit Hem Raj Sharma, in the Kashyap Samhita, has clearly stated that shatavari promotes maternal health and noted its particular use as a galactagogue (enhances breast milk secretion in lactating mothers).
Ayurveda has called Shatavari the Queen of herbs and is the foremost herb recommended for female health. Among the three Ayurveda Doshas of ‘Vata’, ‘Pitta’ and ‘Kapha’ , Shatavari helps in balancing 'Pitta Dosha'. Shatavari's rasas are sweet "madhura" and bitter "tikta". It is a natural coolant.
