Keywords:Asparagus racemosus, Physico-chemical Parameters, Plant-derived estrogens, Standardization, Saponins
Asparagus racemosus, Shatavari, is reported to nourish and cleanse the blood and the female reproductive organs. It is a source of plant-derived estrogens, making Shatavari a healthy choice for women. Asparagus is one of the medicinal plants that are being exported from Nepal in wild form. Quality of a medicinal plant is determined by its Physico-chemical Parameters and the amount of active principle. In this paper the study of various parameters of Asparagus from eight different localities are presented.
