Ayurvedic Herbs for Menopause
Shatavari has been an effective reproductive tonic for women. Studies show that it promotes sex drive in both women and men, while also combating vaginal dryness and balancing menstrual concerns like heavy bleeding or discharge. Taking the stress from the adrenals allows Shatavari to effectively play its role as a reproductive tonic. This herb accounts for the production of the adrenal gland, making it a natural adaptogen. Shatavari contains steroid saponins like sarsaponin, protodioscin, and diosgenin. These compounds act as a precursor of testosterone and increase the secretion of this hormone. Shatavari supports healthy estrogen levels and encourages healthy progesterone as well. Learn more about the Ayurvedic herbs for menopause in this video.
