What is wild yam root extract?

We extract wild yam root extract DHEA from wild yam, and it contains a chemical called diosgenin. Scientists make Diosgenin into various steroids in the laboratory, such as estrogen and dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA). DHEA is a unique precursor to many hormones in the human body. Hundreds of research studies support its effectiveness, and it is one of the most widely studied supplements in scientific literature. Diosgenin’s sources are the root and the plant bulb, prepared as an extract powder containing concentrated Diosgenin.

Native Americans and other traditional medicines use it widely. In traditional Russian herbal medicine, it is anticoagulant, antisclerotic, antispasmodic, cholagogue, depurative, diaphoretic, diuretic, and vasodilator.

Wild yam root extract DHEA benefits

Wild yam root extract DHEA is often promoted as a “natural alternative” to estrogen therapy, so you will see it used for estrogen replacement therapy, vaginal dryness in older women, PMS, menstrual cramps, weak bones, increasing energy, and sexual drive in men and women, and breast enlargement.

Wild yam does seem to have some estrogen-like activity, but it is not converted into estrogen in the body.

It is promoted as a “natural DHEA.” This is because the DHEA is made from diosgenin. So it will increase DHEA levels in people.

It is also used to treat a disorder of the intestines called diverticulosis, gallbladder pain, rheumatoid arthritis, and increasing energy.

Some women apply wild yam creams to the skin to reduce menopausal symptoms such as hot flashes.
