Overview

Asparagus racemosus is a woody, climbing plant used in Ayurvedic medicine. It's found in India, Sri Lanka, Asia, and Australia. It's considered endangered.

Asparagus racemosus might have antioxidant and antibacterial effects. It might also stimulate the immune system.

People use Asparagus racemosus for athletic performance, diabetes, HIV/AIDS, lactation, and many other purposes, but there is no good scientific evidence to support these uses.

Don't confuse Asparagus racemosus with Asparagus officinalis, which is the type of asparagus that is commonly eaten as a vegetable.
