Bala, arbitrarily quoted to the word “strength” is an important concept of Ayurveda. Ayurveda has Proposed Balya Dravyas enhance the Strength. In this background a need was felt to validate the efficacy of the Shatavari, a Balya Dravya for its Physical Performance enhancing activity by fitness tests. Objectives were To evaluate the effect of Shatavari Choorna (root powder) on Physical Fitness Index (PFI) and on Maximal oxygen consumption (VO2 Max). All norms of Good Clinical Practice (GCP) and Ethics were abided. The subjects were assigned in two homogenous groups, as Control and Trial groups. The Trial group was given Shatavari Choorna 3 gms bid for 21 days. To evaluate the efficacy Harward Step Test (HST) was conducted before and after the intervention. None of the subjects reported adverse events throughout the study duration. The test group showed statistically significant increase in the Physical Fitness index (P value 0.044). The test group also showed statistically significant increase in the Maximal Oxygen Consumption (VO2 Max) (P value 0.045). The increase in Physical Fitness level can be attributed to balya action of Shatavari Choorna.
