I have heard this twice from Dr Lad in session and I can vouch for it myself - Shatavari can be Pittagenic, meaning it increases Pitta.

Dr Lad suggests for those in this situation to use Shatavari topically.

You might read in a few places that Shatavari reduces Pitta> If you're a herbalist, consider mixing it with other herbs that reduce it's oiliness (personal experience), perhaps something cool and sharp depending on what you're creating.

For the average Jo-lene, be mindful when buying online for things like the menopause transition - best to check in with your practitioner on your overall protocol.
