What is wild yam extract?
Wild Yam root extract is an extract of the rhizomes of the wild yam, Dioscorea villosa. Wild yam extract contains glycoside and steroidal saponins,diosgenin, alkaloids, tannins,phytosterols, and starch.
The plant does contain a chemical called Diosgenin, which can be converted to Progesterone in the laboratory, but not in the human digestive system. Fenugreek seeds also contain a fair amount of Diosgenin. It would be better to follow the lead of the wise herbalists, midwives, and physicians of earlier centuries and reserve the use of this plant for its intended uses.
Wild yam (non-GMO) is known to be supportive to overall liver health, it is believed that wild yam root's ability to support healthy cholesterol and blood pressure levels indirectly helps the liver by increasing its efficiency and reducing stress.
Its steroidal saponins are also known for when supporting a healthy inflammation response. Its diuretic effect, combined with the antispasmodic action may, soothe painful conditions of the urinary tract.
Traditional Chinese Medicine has used wild yam for at least 2,000 years.
This product is 100% natural and minimally processed. Taste, smell, texture, and color may vary from batch to batch.
