Shatavari has been used for thousands of years in India as a powerful female food supplement due to its superior qualities in supporting the female body. Shatavari thrives in dry arid soils where it has evolved an amazing ability to retain moisture. It is this quality that affirms a reputation for its uniquely soothing, moistening and nourishing properties. Shatavari is also a known adaptogen which enables it to maintain the perfect internal balance, helping you to stay radiant and brimming with vitality.
Pukka’s Wholistic™ Shatavari uses a unique extraction process to retain all active compounds to ensure a powerful extract that is concentrated 10:1. Just two capsules is equivalent to 25,600mg of shatavari.
The ‘wholistic’ way – a Pukka innovation
Pukka call their ground-breaking new technology ‘wholistic’ – for the simple reason that it captures the ‘whole’ goodness of the plants in a broad-spectrum ‘holistic’ extract, giving purer and more potent ingredients to pass on to you through the Pukka Organic Wellbeing family.
This wholistic technique uses a traditional extraction process (water and hydroethanolic), coupled with something called supercritical extraction (this is where C02 is used under pressure to act like a ‘glue’ to extract fat soluble plant molecules).
When combined together, these two techniques – traditional and supercritical -capture the broadest spectrum of magical compounds found in a plant, including its essential oils, waxes, resins and pigments – extracts that are often not fully captured using other methods.
The final yield of herbal extracts is several times more potent than anything found in standard herb powders and capsules – with the potential to help you feel truly alive to the wonders of the world."
Wholistic for the environment too
"Naturally, the planet is always at the top of Pukkas list of priorities. And by using organic growing techniques along with wholistic extraction to harvest a plant’s natural goodness, we’re doing our best to show her some Pukka love and respect.
As you may know, many herbal compounds are extracted using the chemicals acetone, methanol or hexane. These powerful substances are not good friends of the planet; they are effective solvents but with poor biodegradability, and some questionable impacts on human health too.
In contrast, the wholistic technology requires less energy compared to other practices and uses the abundant natural gas Carbon Dioxide. Because of this, its emissions are lower; the C02 we use for carbon dioxide extraction is recycled for use on our next crop of herbs; and absolutely no harmful non-biodegradable substances are produced during the process.
So you could say, we’ve found the most ‘pukka’ way of optimising some of nature’s most incredible plants – as well as the beautiful planet they grow on. It’s why they are ‘wholistic’."

Pukka has grown from its beliefs in ayurveda – the ancient Indian art of living wisely – and the incredible health benefits of organic herbs. The more we learn about Pukka from founder Sebastian Pole, the more impressed with this beautiful Bristol based company we are. Translated from Hindi, Pukka means 'authentic', 'genuine' or, more colloquially, 'top-quality', 'Pukka' epitomises all that they represent – ethos, ambition and everything this company creates.
At Pukka's heart (and a big heart that is) is ayurvedic medicine. The products that stem from Pukka wholistically embrace health. A huge emphasis is placed on sourcing sustainable organic plants, and on looking after those involved in production of Pukka products, ensuring fair rewards and charitable support.
Innovation with an absolute insistence on quality. We love Pukka's Ayurvedic philosophy which helps them to create products that are unique in the marketplace... Herbal formulations that really work such as their Elderberry syrup which should be in everyones cupboard to kick back against those winter bugs and the best quality Organic Certified Aloe Vera Juice.
