How to brave hormonal imbalance & build a strong reproductive system
Expecting mothers are required to maintain good health, eat right and ensure all nutritional bases are covered so that they can sail through a stress-free pregnancy, labor and in due time, give birth to a healthy baby. In such a scenario, it makes perfect sense to turn to Mother Nature herself for all the help and guidance !
Two herbal products – Shatavari and Punarnava, both offer great value as dietary supplements to arrest any hormonal imbalance and relieve a host of other unpleasant experiences women tend to face in general. They have been used as prized herbs in Ayurveda for hundreds of years as remedies for menstrual and reproductive problems.
No more period woes!
With Shatavari, menstrual cramps can slowly begin to take a back seat. A pure herb extract that is also known as “Indian asparagus”, it is commonly used in Ayurveda to keep extensive blood loss in check as well. Indian mothers often feed Shatavari to their young daughters as they embark on their reassuring journey through puberty. They will probably discover 100 other remedies and cures along the way since “Shatavari” in Sanskrit, translates to “a hundred cures”!
Shatavari helps get rid of bloating problems because it releases that extra water weight the body carries during that time of the month. Typical fatigue that girls experience before and during periods almost disappear on consumption of this herb. It has phytoestrogens that help restore hormonal imbalances that occur due to premenstrual syndrome. So your mental and physical health will be on point, always.
For New Mothers
Shatavari plays the part of a strong, supportive immunity booster for new mothers since it rejuvenates the body post-delivery. It is ideal as a post-delivery supplement. On consumption, it helps a new mother get the right kind of nourishment that improves prolactin hormone levels and supports optimum production of breast milk to feed her baby.
Since Shatavari contains phytoestrogens, it is mighty useful for women who have to deal with low natural estrogen levels when they go through menopause. It acts as a natural coolant that soothes away hot flashes and night sweats.
Urinary Tract Protection
Punarnava is well known to be effective in preventing Urinary Tract Infections. Its anti-microbial, anti-inflammatory and anti-spasmodic properties are beneficial in treating urinary tract disorders such as chronic and recurrent urinary tract infections (UTIs).
This herb has flavonoid arbinofuranoside which helps lower serum uric acid, thus effectively treating urogenital disorders.
So ladies, taking care of your vital reproductive organs and urinary tract may just have become easier, with the advent of Ayurveda in your daily life. All it takes, is to imbibe the care into your routine, consume the right supplements and maintain hygiene, to take optimum care of yourself.
