Nature's Way Wild Yam Root. Best known as herb from which synthetic hormone contraceptives were manufactured. However research is equivocal around its action as a natural form of progesterone. Effective as anti-spasmodic liver herb in bowel problems such as cramps gas. 100 VCapsules

Wild Yam has been used for over 2,000 years, especially in Chinese medicine. Chinese herbalists use Wild Yam as a tonic to activate and stimulate the liver. Wild Yam contains a high concentration of diosgenin, one of the main active ingredients, which provide the building block required to synthesise hormones in the body. In the 1940's the scientific community discovered Wild Yam. An article published by Professor Russell Marker showed the hormones progesterone and estrogen could be inexpensively synthesised from diosgenin. Until then, production of these hormones was based on costly multi-step extractions from animals. Thus, Wild Yam is best known for its role in providing the phytosterols from which the first synthetic hormone contraceptives were manufactured. However (some research states that) unlike dermally applied Wild yam creams, orally ingested Wild yam root has no hormonal or precursor hormonal activity at all. However its actions as an anti-spasmodic make it useful for smooth muscle spasm, bilious and intestinal colic, ovarian and uterine cramping, menstrual pain and discomfort, rheumatism, inflammatory bowel disease and other inflammatory conditions. Because of its liver and bile tonic activity, Wild yam has traditionally been considered the best relief and promptest cure for bilious colic.

Some research states that it uses plant steroid diosgenin to provide building block required to synthesise progesterone making it useful in PMS and menopause. Useful in support of irritated or nervous bowel problems, diverticulitis (colon inflammation), asthma, bronchitis, rheumatic pains, biliary colic, pains of gallstones, menstrual cramps, abdominal intestinal cramps, chronic gas flatulence. Also involved in production of DHEA (a steroid) which works by inhibiting the synthesis of fatty acids cholesterol. This also assists with delayed aging inhibited obesity.

2 Capsules three times a day. In acute situations increase dosage to 3 Capsules three times a day. Stop after 1 week and repeat if necessary.
