Sugar causes the body to secrete insulin and insulin is the master hormone in the body. When your insulin levels go too high it throws off all the other hormones in the body....Stimulants like refined sugars and coffee tax the adrenals.

This herb is one of the most important restorative and regenerative tonic herbs for women. Shatavari is an Ayurvedic herb which is translates as “she who posses 100 husbands”!

Shatavari is also nourishing and detoxifying, while also calming stress and anxiety. Source
