Shatavari (Asparagus racemosus) also helps gastric ulcers and gastric emptying. It is an Ayurvedic rasayana, which is mentioned in various ancient Indian texts for the treatment of gastric ulcers, galactogogue, and the stabilization of female hormones. The ulcer-protective effect of the methanolic extract from the fresh roots of the Shatavari extract has been studied in different animal models. It helped prevent mucosal lining of the stomach by increasing mucus secretion and at the same time stabilizing the production of acid and pepsin (an enzyme secreted by the stomach linings). Combined effects of the acid and pepsin helped the lifespan of cells and reduced the irritation in the stomach lining. On the contrary, the drugs available are called anti-secretery compounds, or proton pump inhibitors like Aciphex. They are supposed to reduce acid production, not increase it. Interestingly, most of the patients with Gastro-Esophageal Reflux Disease (GERD) usually have low acid production. By suppressing acid production further, we end up putting the digestion in jeopardy and not absorbing other nutrients. We also end up deficient in Vitamin B12 and Folic Acid.
When compared with a modern drug, Metoclopramide (commonly used in dyspepsia to reduce gastric emptying time), both the drug and the herb showed similar effects in gastric emptying. Also, the roots of Asparagus racemosus showed considerable in-vitro antibacterial properties that are comparable with chloramphenicol (a strong antibiotic). Heliobacter pylori is a bacteria known to cause gastric ulcers and GERD, and Shatavari helps combat that as well. Considering all these properties, it make perfect sense to use Shatavari for gastric ulcers.
