Wild Yam is an autonomic nerve relaxant useful in painful gastrointestinal conditions due to irritation and spasm, neuralgic conditions, and restlessness. It relieves the cramping pain of smooth muscles like the gall bladder and uterus. The plant was commonly used throughout its range in North and Central Americas, being favoured by tribes in those regions for pain relief, especially for menstrual cramps. The root also helped to balance hormones (bringing the libido back into balance) and ease the pain of childbirth. The tubers were used for food.
There is a great deal of misinformation about the connection between wild yam and progesterone. While diosgenin (a compound found in wild yam) can be converted into progesteron in the laboratory, it cannot be converted into progesterone in the human body. Wild yam contains no progesterone, natural or otherwise.
Suggested use: Brew as a tea by adding 1-2 Tbsp. to 8 oz. boiling water, let steep for 5 mins. Enjoy! *Increase dosage if needed.
