Wild Yam 1000mg- 100 caps

Wild Yam has traditionally been used as an antispasmodic herb to help relieve menstrual cramps and support the maintenance of female well being, as well as to assist in the relief of spasms in the digestive system.

The Dioscorea villosa (Wild Yam) plant has a history of use in Native American Indian culture for both culinary and medicinal purposes which stretches back hundreds of years. A perennial twining vine native to North America, it is the plant's long tuberous roots that are used medicinally and considered to exert antispasmodic and anti-inflammatory actions, giving rise to its common names of 'colic root' and 'rheumatism root'.

With its antispasmodic properties, Wild Yam has traditionally been used to help provide relief of digestive colic and spasms as well as uterine cramps and period pain. The herb's antispasmodic effect is achieved via the nervous system, creating relaxation of tension in muscles that may be responsible for causing spasms or cramps. In the digestive system, colic or spasms may be caused through muscular contractions of the stomach and intestines, whilst cramps associated with menstruation are caused through spasms of the muscles in the uterine wall.
Does Wild Yam have a Hormonal Effect

The herb Wild Yam (Mexican Yam) has been widely used in commercial laboratories for its natural content of diosgenin, a steroidal saponin which bears resemblance to oestrogen and can be chemically converted into steroid hormones including progesterone. This may explain Wild Yam's reputation of assisting with women's health, including symptoms of menstrual pain as well as symptoms during later stages of a woman's life.
Wild Yam 1000

Wild Yam 1000 contains the equivalent of 1g of Wild Yam root and offers the convenient dose of 1-2 capsules a day. Wild Yam 1000 is suitable for women seeking symptomatic relief of period cramps and pain or those with digestive spasms.
