Nutrient - Wild Yam

(Dioscorea opposita)

By Nutri People

Mexican Wild Yam (Dioscorea villosa) and Wild Yam (Dioscorea opposita) are rich sources of natural plant sterols (phytosterols) and phyto-oestrogens, especially diosgenin and saponins. Phyto-oestrogens help regulate female hormone levels by balancing oestrogen in relation to progesterone. They also support healthy adrenal gland function, which supports hormone balance too. By helping regulate hormones, phyto-oestrogens help maintain balanced mood, body temperature, body water, libido, memory, and energy and joint health. Phytosterols help balance cholesterol levels, thereby helping maintain healthy heart function. The herbs also support healthy function of the stomach, muscles, gall bladder, kidneys and liver.
