Wild yam is an ages-old remedy for women suffering from menopausal issues. This plant is a wild growing creeper vine that stays low to the ground and is commonly found growing wild in Eastern North America. This plant contains a steroidal saponin called diosgenin, which is used by commercial companies to make steroid type hormones. Diosgenin is one of the building blocks of progesterone, a naturally occurring female hormone. For the most part, wild yam is considered a female remedy.
Wild yam may also be used to alleviate nausea, arthritis, muscle spasm and digestive difficulty. It may even be used for dealing with high blood pressure and high cholesterol levels. Nature’s Sunshine wild yam is made with only the best wild yam and contains 375 mg per capsule. The normal serving size is one to two capsules twice daily with food.
