What are the benefits of Wild Yam?
Wild yam has traditionally been used to rebalance see-sawing hormones that can trigger symptoms such as PMS and menstrual cramps.
But it could also help with the menopause, from tackling hot flushes to beating low mood.
Wild yam root contains a chemical called diosgenin, a phytoestrogen; a plant substance that has weak oestrogen-type effects.
Wild Yam root is perhaps most famous for its ability to support women in the health of their reproductive systems. With powerful antispasmodic and anti-inflammatory properties, Wild Yam is often prescribed by herbalists to relieve menstrual cramps and chronic pelvic pain. Helping the uterus to work more efficiently during menses, this uterine support allows for proper function of the uterus whilst working to prevent cramping and spasms.
Wild Yam has long been promoted as a source of natural progesterone. It is thought to aid in menopausal symptoms due to its containing a precursor to the steroid hormone “diosgenin”, however diosgenin does not have any hormonal activity and cannot be converted to any hormones the body can use. Despite the debate, there does seem to be some credible research that Wild Yam is beneficial for menopausal women. One study of 22 menopausal women who ate this tuber for 30 days showed improved status of sex hormones, lipids and antioxidants. The researchers speculated this may reduce the risk of breast cancer and cardiovascular disease in post-menopausal women, although they admitted “the mechanism is not clear”. Sometimes we just have to trust that nature really does know best.
Whilst rigorous scientific testing is scant, some herbalists believe that Wild Yam boosts digestion by improving the function of the gall bladder and the liver. These two organs are vital in the digestive process by encouraging the production of bile and breaking down food. Historically it was used to ease the passage of small gallstones.
The aforementioned steroidal glycoside, “diosgenin” has been found in scientific studies to have a powerful anti-inflammatory effect. This validates the traditional use of Wild Yam as an aid to reduce the painful inflammation in the joints brought on by rheumatoid arthritis.
Does Agnus Castus help with female health and menopause?
Agnus Castus Berry- also known as ‘Chaste Tree’, is a purple flower shrub found in the Mediterranean, Central Asia, and North America. It is a good source of phytoestrogens and flavonoids and has a long history of use in traditional application. Previous studies have reported its beneficial action against osteopenia and promotion of fracture healing. A randomized-control study supplementing 50 pre/post-menopausal women with Agnus Castus Berry (200mg daily) in combination with black cohosh, found a significantly superior mean reduction in menopause symptoms compared to placebo. After 3 months’ treatment, there was a 73% decrease in hot flushes and 69% reduction in the frequency of night sweats.
