Comments about Savesta Shatavari Phytoestrogenic for Women, Veggie Caps, 60 ea:
I am a peri-menopausal 48-year old woman. Shatavari was recommended to me from a friend when I was sharing with her that I am having issues with sex drive and vaginal dryness. I used as directed and can say that it was helpful with both those issues, but after about 2 weeks, I noticed unexplained weight gain (6 pounds in 4 days) and that my feet and ankles were very swollen (edema), PAINFULLY SO. I went to the doctor and he recommended I stop the shatavari. OVERNIGHT I lost 5 pounds and the swelling was nearly gone, then completely resolved by the 2nd day after stopping. Since I'd been so happy with the results regarding sex drive and dryness issue, I started taking it again after about 5 days off, just to be sure it wasn't a coincidence. Unfortunately, it was not. Within 48 hours, my weight was up 4 pounds and my feet and ankles were painfully swollen again. So no more shatavari for me. You may wish to try it anyway; maybe you won't experience the same side effects. I am disappointed as it had definitely improved the situation for which I'd originally purchased it, but the edema was too uncomfortable to tolerate it for me.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
