Asparagus is perhaps best known as a female rejuvenative. According to Ayurvedic texts, Shatavari means “one who possesses hundred husbands”. The root contains compounds called steroidal glycosides (asparagoside) that directly affect hormone production and may very well influence emotions. It is the most important herb in Ayurvedic medicine for dealing with problems connected with women’s fertility. It is useful in infertility, decreased libido, threatened miscarriage, menopause, leucorrhoea, menstrual cramps and has the ability to balance pH in the cervical area. Dry membranes, such as those on the vaginal wall, are also brought into balance through the herbs demulcent action. It tones, cleanses, nourishes, and strengthens the female reproductive organs and so is traditionally used to control the symptoms of PMS, including breast tenderness and abdominal bloating, amenorrhoea, dysmenorrhoea, leucorrhoea and menopause. It is also useful in pelvic inflammatory disease like endometriosis. It also supports deeper tissue and build blood and so it helps to remove infertility, prepare the womb for conception, prevent miscarriage and acts as a post-partum tonic where it helps to increase lactation and normalize the uterus and the changing hormones. So many of these benefits abound because Asparagus contains phytoestrogens, hormones that normalize estrogen levels and also play an important role in preserving women’s long term health. Clinical studies suggest that plant estrogen’s are better than drugs for hormone balancing since they do not produce negative side effects such as uterine cancer. This gentle herb will promote an easier balanced life.
Men may benefit from the herb as well in the treatment of impotence, spermatorrhoea, and general and sexual debility. In addition to it’s applications for reproductive organs, Asparagus is also quite effective for stomach ulcers, hyperacidity and diarrhoea. Dry and irritated membranes in the upper respiratory tract are soothed by this herb making it useful in cases of bronchitis and chronic fevers. It is believed to bring into balance all of the body’s fluids.

Recommended Dosage
3 to 8 g powder of dried roots.

Contraindication

Asparagus racemosus (or shatavari) has finger-shaped roots and is used extensively in ayurvedic medicine. Asparagus officinalis is cultivated for its edible shoots.

White asparagus is cultivated by covering the shoots with the soil after they have sprouted. This prevents photosynthesis, resulting in the white color.

Asparagus Is Highly Perishable!

Asparagus is more perishable than other vegetables and begins to lose its nutrients after it is picked. Use it the same day you pick or purchase it. You can keep it fresh by wrapping the ends in damp paper or cloth towels and storing in the refrigerator.

Health Benefits

These properties give asparagus a wide range of health benefits.

Cancer

The health benefits of asparagus has largely been attributed to the saponins in the roots. Asparagus officinalis has saponins in the shoots as well. Saponins have anti-inflammatory properties. Research has shown that the phytochemical, or antioxidant, properties in asparagus prevent cell damage that precedes cancer.

Asparagus contains a unique carbohydrate called inulin that does not get digested in the anterior part of the intestine, but travels to the large intestine where it is broken down by the bacteria residing there (the Bifidibacteria and Lactobacilli). These bacteria use inulin as food to thrive and multiply, thereby lowering the risk of colon cancer and allergies, and increasing the absorption of nutrients.

Alzheimer’s disease

Studies show that high levels of Vitamin E, as are present in asparagus, help prevent the brain changes that precede Alzheimer’s disease.

Heart Disease

Its anti-inflammatory properties, and also its various B-complex vitamins (especially choline, biotin, and pantothenic acid) play a key role in regulating blood sugar levels and keeping amino acid homocysteine levels low. This reduces the risk of heart disease, lowering blood pressure, and reducing risk of heart attack and stroke. It also helps regulate blood fat and cholesterol levels.

Digestion

Research into the role of prebiotics in digestive health show that asparagus, as a high-fiber vegetable, aids in digestion and helps boost the body’s immune system. The unique carbohydrate inulin, and the dietary fiber (which is a combination of insoluble and soluble fiber), relieves constipation, dyspepsia, ulcers, diarrhea, dysentery, and colic, and improves digestion by increasing the levels of the enzymes amylase and lipase, which digest carbohydrates and fat, respectively.

Blood Sugar

The anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties also translate into the lowering of blood sugar levels, with the dietary fiber also pitching in. This especially reduces risk of type 2 diabetes.

Anxiety

Studies in China have shown that asparagus extract is beneficial in the treatment of anxiety, according to Harvard Medical School.

Health Benefits in Ayurvedic Medicin

The list of health benefits of asparagus is long and very impressive. It is used as a female reproductive tonic in Ayurveda, but its benefits go far beyond this.

According to ayurveda, the root (the most used part of the plant) has the following properties/benefits:

  • Antiseptic
  • Antidiarrheal and antidystentric
  • Diuretic
  • Galactogogue (increases milk output in breastfeeding women)
  • Antispasmodic
  • Anti-inflammatory
  • Aphrodisiac
  • Demulcent (soothing pain and inflammations)
  • Nutritive (nourishing)
  • Refrigerant (cooling effect, pitta pacifying effect)
  • Tonic
  • Antitussive (relieves cough)
  • Antioxytocic (prevents stimulation of the uterus muscles)
  • Antioxidant
  • Immunomodulator
  • Adaptogen (metabolism regulator, helping the body to adapt to environment factors easily)

Asparagus and Urine Odor

Many people report a strong odor in their urine after consuming asparagus, while many others have no such issues. No simple or single explanation has been forthcoming on this by researchers as there are 21 different substances that are believed to cause this odor.

Also, many people do not experience this smell, either due the different ways their bodies metabolize asparagus, or because they are not being able to perceive this odor. Not enough research has been done on the connection between asparagus consumption, urine odor, and its risk to health.

Therefore, it would be safe to assume that, in view of the above facts, to consume or not consume asparagus is a personal choice. Of course, by not consuming it, one is bound to miss out on its various health benefits.

Precautions

Asparagus contains purines, so people who suffer from gout or kidney stones, or even those who are susceptible to purine-related problems, should avoid or limit their consumption of asparagus. An excess of purines can cause excess of uric acid in the body, and lead to health issues in such individuals.
