Asparagus racemosus attenuates anxiety-like behaviour in experimental animal models.
From its traditional use in Ayurvedic medicine as a rasayana drug, Asparagus racemosus (AR) (shatavari) is now used worldwide as a medicinal plant, with reported pharmacological activities including adaptogenic, anti-stress, gastroduodenal ulcer protective, anticancer, immunomodulatory and diabetic-induced anti nephropathic effects.
Additionally, the authors proposed that, based on the findings, methanolic extract of Asparagus racemosus probably attenuates anxiety behaviour through modulation of the amygdalar serotonergic and norepinephrinergic systems.
Plant materials include Acorus calamus (Araceae) stem, Asparagus racemosus (Asparagaceae) root, Aegle marmelos (Rutaceae) leaves and fruits, Cassia fistula (Fabaceae) fruits, Gymnema sylvestre (Asclepiadaceae) leaves, Holarrhena antidysenterica (Apocynaceae) bark, Mimusops elengi (Sapotaceae) bark, Ocimum sanctum (Lamiaceae) leaves, Piper longum (Piperaceae) leaves, Sapindus trifoliatus (Sapindaceae) fruits, Terminalia arjuna (Combretaceae) bark, Terminalia bellerica (Combretaceae) fruits, Terminalia chebula (Combretaceae) fruits and Withania somnifera (Solanaceae) roots.

A series of Sarsapogenin and Diosgenin derived steroidal constituents (1-12), isolated from Solarium xanthocarpum and Asparagus racemosus were screened for their ability to induce cell death and apoptosis of colon carcinoma cells.
Thus, in order to identify an effective apoptosis inducing agents, we have tested several steroidal compounds, structurally related to diosgenin (including diosgenin) which were isolated from two Indian medicinal plants namely Solanum xanthocarpum and Asparagus racemosus.
