Asparagus racemosus is a woody climber growing to 1 to 2 meters in height. The leaves are like pine needles, small and uniform and the flowers are white and have small spikes. It is commonly found at low altitudes in shade and in tropical climates throughout India, Asia, Australia and Africa.

Shatavari has more than 50 organic compounds including steroidal saponins, glycosides, alkaloids, polysaccharides, mucilage, racemosol and isoflavones which are responsible for the multiple medicinal properties exhibited by the herb.
