Asparagus; Shatavari

Ayurvedic herb Shatavari (Asparagus racemosus) has a history of folklore for use in bust enhancement and health. This passage is about the role of Asparagus in health and in breast enhancement.

Shatavari is known as a general health tonic. This herb is often used to promote lactation for the purpose of nursing.

Etymology

The genus of Asparagus belongs to the plant family of Asparagaceae. Previously, asparagus was classified under the family Liliaceae.

Satamuli, Satawar, Satavari, Shatuli, Vrishya, Shatawari, Shatavari, Sheetaveerya and Rag Samsib are alternate names for Asparagus racemosus. Asparagus adscendens (Shweta musali), and Asparagus gonoclades are less popular for traditional medicinal use in India. Another well known species is common Asparagus (Asparagus officinalis).

Properties

Constituents of interest

Shatavari root contains Shatavarins and sarsasapogenin, which are saponins. Shatavarins are categorized as steroidal.

Asparagus species typically contain vitamins: A, B1, B2, B9, C and E. This genus contains the minerals: magnesium, calcium and iron.

Published studies

One study showed an ethanol extract of Shatavari to increase prolactin, which is consistent with its effects on the breast. Another study theorized if the antioxidant content of Asparagus racemosus root had a positive effect on reproductive health, including follicle development.

A study on Asparagus officinalis found that a water extract of its roots increased luteinizing hormone (LH), follicular stimulating hormone (FSH), gonadotropin releasing hormone (GnRH), progesterone, and estrogen.

Additional health benefit

A benefit of asparagus, is that its constituents, Shatavarins, have anti-cancerous properties.

Discussion

Shatavari seems to have a balanced effect on raising hormones. Asparagus' hormonal effects are likely circumstantial (as most herbs are) depending on the time of the menstrual cycle. Through literature, Satawar has similarities to fenugreek and suma.

Use

Asparagus for breast enhancement

Picture of Asparagus plant

For purposes of breast enhancement, the root from many species of asparagus may substitute Shatavari. Asparagus has a small effect on breast tissue by itself. However, with the right combination of other herbs with varying properties, the potential for breast enlargement can be maximized.

The part of Asparagus that is used for herbal medicine is its tubers. Asparagus is better taken in solid form, either fresh, ground or dried, than through extracts. The reason for this is because un-extracted plants, contain fiber that is beneficial for health.

Taking asparagus root by itself during proliferative phase is typically counter-productive to breast enhancement. In comparison, hops is a proven effective herb, that also is not effective during proliferative phase. Asparagus root can be taken as an addition to the rest of the herbs in the herb schedule for menstruation and secretory phases.

Herb timing and combinations' success for breast enhancement relies on menstrual phases.

Descriptions of results from combination herb use, potentially Asparagus or herbs with similar properties, can be seen in the program blogs of: anon03, anon04, anon05, Canadian Belle and hirsutism.

Similar herbs

Asparagus has similar hormone raising properties as fenugreek and suma, and is more specific to the breasts. Shatavari complements fenugreek for most phases in the herb schedule.

Thistles either of the genus Silybum of Cnicus are possible partial substitutes for asparagus. The seed of Silybum would be used.

Precautions

There are different accounts on whether asparagus berries are edible, but it's better to avoid them. Berries of Asparagus curillus (and possibly of Asparagus berries in general) have abortifacient properties.

If you have hirsutism, PCOS, hot-flashes, other signs of hormone imbalances, see estrogen-imbalance and treating hirsutism program before trying herbs. See precautions for more details of care to be taken with herb use. Proper nutrition is a consideration for health. Also, check for the latest blog updates about herb and hormone safety.

Herb concentrates can be tens of times more potent by weight than herbs in solid form. This can easily lead to hormone imbalances. For this reason, concentrate extracts are not recommended for extended or excessive internal use, especially during fertility years. Concentrates shouldn't be used to overcome plateaus. Another issue with herbal extracts, is that they may not have the full range of properties of the herb. Essential oils are not recommended for breast enhancement. If opting to use herb extracts, use no more than 1 drop at a time diluted in a food-grade carrier oil (like unrefined olive oil), or water.

High levels of anti-mullerian hormone (AMH) is associated with high LH and high androgens for those with PCOS. AMH levels are measured to indicate potential fertility. Lowered fertility likely has to do with reduced FSH and estrogen sensitivity.

Anethole & estragole - June 25, 2019
Many known stilbenes are estrogen receptor antagonists. Stilbenes and their polymers include: anethole, dianethole, estragole, tamoxifen, stilbene and stilbestrol. Spearmint and fennel contain stilbenes as active hormonal constituents. Based on anecdotal information from spearmint's and fennel's actions, anethole, dianethole and estragole are likely ERα selective. Anethole is another name for transanethole, and Stilbene is another term for transtilbene. Estragole and anethole are isomers. Dianethole and photoanethole are polymers of anethole.

Updates - June 04, 2019
Breast and hip tissue should increase the ability for estrogen conversion from androgens. The term hormone receptor blockers is inaccurate to describe hormones' effects according to this research. Phytohormones can multiply, act directly on or cause an inverse action of hormone effects or of other phytohormones. A phytohormone's basic actions are agonize, antagonize and influence bodily hormones. These actions desensitize or sensitize receptors, and increase a bodily response. The ultimate effect depends on the presence of other phytohormones and bodily hormones. Caffeine, for instance, can cause an inverse effect of shrinking tissue size, when added to a herb combination that would otherwise cause growth.

Papaya, Black walnut - May 27, 2019
Papaya seeds kill intestinal parasites. Black walnut (Juglans nigra) hull as extract or powder also kills worms. Juglans can cause a hormone imbalance with excessive or extended use, so a small amount is recommeneded. There are other herbs that can get rid of intestinal parasites, but papaya seeds and black wallnut hulls are safer and highly effective. Pineapple also breaks down worms. Pumpkin seed only works against certain species of intestinal worms, and it doesn't completely destroy them. Wormwood kills intestinal worms, but it is easily toxic in high doses.

Vitamin supplementation - April 17, 2019
There has been recent controversy about vitamin supplementation. From now on, suggestions will be limited. Vitamin C will be suggested, as it preserves fat soluble vitamin E, and possibly other fat soluble vitamins and antioxidants. Vitamin E may be used, but use it sparingly and with foods with fiber. If you take vitamin D, be sure it is in a complex with calcium, magnesium and zinc. Vitamin B12 supplementation (with B vitamins complex) is only for those who don't eat meat, dairy or eggs. See /appendix/nutrition for vitamin amounts and for information on nutritious foods.

Acne - March 19, 2019
Acne is caused by androgens, glucocorticoids, corticotropin and insulin. Androgens trigger the production of sebum from sebaceus glands, which causes acne. Insulin affects the size of sebaceus glands. Unfortunately, hair follicles transform mild androgens into DHT, which hirsutism symptoms often show up after acne symptoms go away. When there's acne, there's potential to use herbs with an estrogen analog to cause breast growth. The problem is, acne caused by herbs has seemed to antagonize one of two estrogen receptors before. If the estrogen simile targets the wrong receptor, the herb won't work, and there's potential for negative effects. It is much better to use the right herb combination, than to try to react by adding herbs later. If the correct herb compliment is taken moments late, that can also cause negative results.
