Shatavari extract has been in use for the longest time and has a profound rejuvenating effect. The extract contains a compound, sapogenin, in its roots and this contributes to the stimulating effect. It impacts positively on the immune system by making sure that the macrophages are functioning appropriately. Once the immune cells are stimulated the system becomes stronger and more resistant to various conditions that may compromise your health. This also includes attacks by pathogens and other disease causing organisms.
Shatavari extract powder also plays a key role in cleansing the digestive system and specifically the gut. Some people have very sensitive guts and hence gradually develop irritable bowel syndrome as well as ulcers. The powder tones down the effects of the syndrome which include discomfort, and sometimes diarrhea and vomiting. Also, the activity of the digestive enzymes is improved and hence they are able to digest their respective substrates more rapidly.
