Abstract

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.

Keywords: Asparagus racemosus; Physico-chemical Parameters; Plant-derived estrogens; Standardization; Saponins.
