Amirrah Othman

Breastfeeding journey is not easy eventhough it looks simple but it actually hard and stressful for some woman. Not many woman have the effort and determination in breastfeed their babies. Some who lack of support will usually end up to feed their babies with the formula.

One of the challenge in breastfeeding journey is to actually have more milk. It is the crucial part where sometimes most woman don't know what to do and end up with a wrong advice. Then, they give up. It is a sad situation because every woman are gifted with the milk factory. 

El Malique Muhammad, my third baby is currently 6 months and I'm thankful for the last 6 months the journey is went well but of course it has the up and down. Therefore, I take initiative to take a supplement to overcome it. Here comes the Shatavari from Himalaya.

Shatavari Himalaya. 

In Sanskrit, Shatavari (Asparagus/Asparagus racemosus) means ‘she who possesses a hundred husbands,’ implying its ability to help support fertility and vitality. It regulates hormonal secretion and acts as a galactogogue in nursing women. Researchers at the Interdisciplinary School of Health Sciences, the University of Pune, India, also found Shatavari to be supportive of normal lymphocyte levels and immune system function. They also noted its long use in traditional Ayurveda to support normal digestive function (Journal of Ethnopharmacology, January 21 2009, 121(2):241-7).

Shatavari has enjoyed a rich and varied history of use through the centuries. Shatavari tubers were once candied and eaten as a sweetmeat. Nursing mothers ate Shatavari because it supported the normal production of breast milk. In some cultures, people drink the fresh juice of the root mixed with honey. It is also used topically in medical oils for its soothing and cooling properties.

Active constituents:

Its principal constituents include saponins, sitosterol and stigmasterol with their glucosides, alkaloids, proteins and tannins. The plant contains the triterpene saponins called Shatavarin I-IV, which support the body's own natural production of estrogen. The chemical ingredients in the Shatavari plant include steroidal saponins, isoflavones, asparagamine A and polysaccharides.

Herb functions:

Women's health: Shatavari can restore hormonal balance in women who have fluctuating hormonal levels due to menstruation and menopause, thus alleviating pre-menstrual and menopausal symptoms. It is also popular as a herb that enhances fertility and regulates the menstrual cycle. With an estrogenic effect on the female mammary glands and reproductive system, Shatavari boosts postpartum health and enhances the production of breast milk in lactating mothers.

Gastrointestinal health: The herb heals conditions such as heartburn and colitis. It has anti-ulcerogenic and gastroprotective properties. Shatavari is reported to have a significant effect in the management of gastrointestinal microbial infections caused by E.coli, Shigella and V. cholera.

Diuretic: Shatavari is a potent diuretic and is helpful in flushing out toxins through urine.


  • Reduction in breast milk secretion in nursing women
  • Menopausal and post-menopausal symptoms
  • Contraindications: None

Recommended dose: 

One capsule, twice a day or as directed by your physician
