Review on Medicinal Value of Asparagus racemosus in Woman’s
At the present time it is a wide spread belief on the part of the general public that natural substances are inherently superior to synthetic substances and have played a mainstream role in the health care system for the prevention of diseases. Asparagus racemosus, traditionally known as shatavari means "who possesses a hundred husbands or acceptable to many". In Ayurveda it is considered a female tonic. Asparagus racemosus has been successfully used by some medical practitioners as an anti-inflammatory, anti-microbial and immunomodulator for many infectious diseases. Asparagus racemosus can also improve the milk production and reproduction capacity of dairy animals. This review summarizes the Nutritional value aspects of Asparagus racemosus.
