Shatavari is another medicinal plant that’s prized in Ayurveda, and the legend says something about this herb giving you the ability to have 100 husbands. That sounds like a lot, to us at least. We believe this lore is alluding to the plant’s affinity toward the female reproductive system. the root of the plant is used to promote reproductive health (males included), a healthy libido, hormone balance, and milk production. It also works to boost the immune system, energy levels, and to sooth the digestive system. It goes well in ghee, warm milk or as a tea with a bit off fat in it (for extraction purposes, of course).
