Swanson Wild Yam Root is a dietary supplement with wild yam root extract standardized for the content of biologically active diosgenin.

This product supports women’s health and it is especially recommended for women who struggle with troublesome symptoms of menopause, however it is also very effective in case of women who suffer from premenstrual syndrome. In addition, this supplement presents a wide spectrum of pro-health properties.

Wild Yam (Dioscorea villosa), is a perennial vine, naturally growing in tropical areas of Africa, Asia and South America. Its root is known as pharmaceutical raw material and for centuries it has been used as an expectorant, antispasmodic and antirheumatic agent. In folk medicine it was also used to treat gynaecological problems such as: painful menstruation, PMS or menopausal symptoms.

The most important bioactive substance found in the wild yam root is diosgenin, a chemical compound that belongs to phytoestrogens group. It is similar in structure to estrogens produced in the body, so it may have some influence on the hormonal system.

Wild Yam and women's health
Extracts from the wild yam root are recommended for women struggling with various ailments that result from hormonal imbalance. Bioactive substances found in this plant may naturally balance female hormones. However, it should be noted that yet there is no evidence that there are any enzymes in the human body that allow the process of conversion of saponins contained in wild yam root to DHEA or other hormones.

Despite this fact, numerous women who used wild yam supplements confirm that during the supplementation period their menopausal symptoms (night sweats, hot flashes, mood fluctuations, loss of libido) decreased significantly, and were less troublesome. It also seems that wild yam relieves painful uterine spasms that cause severe menstrual pains, and reduces the troublesome symptoms of premenstrual syndrome (PMS).

Wild Yam and cholesterol levels
Tests on animals showed that diosgenin lowers blood cholesterol levels. Scientists claim that this is caused by the structural similarity of diosgenin molecule to cholesterol molecule. It can be presumed that diosgenin competes with cholesterol and blocks its absorption, what results in lowering cholesterol concentration in serum. Human tests are not very advanced yet, but they seem to be equally promising. After six weeks of supplementation with wild yam extract in majority of participants HDL cholesterol levels increased, and the triglycerides concentration decreased.

Wild Yam and rheumatic pain
In traditional Chinese medicine, the wild yam root was treated as a remedy for osteoarticular pain and it was commonly used in patients suffering from rheumatoid arthritis. Scientists believe that saponins present in the wild yam root have a strong anti-inflammatory properties so they are able to effectively soothe pain and relieve symptoms of disease.

Wild Yam and anticancer potential
Scientists have no doubt that the wild yam root reduces the risk of breast cancer and MCF-7 line breast cancer. Research shows that wild yam plant extract inhibits the proliferation of MCF-7 cancer cells, so it can be used to prevent diseases caused by carcinogenic factors.

Summing up, Swanson Wild Yam Root is a dietary supplement that can be beneficial for women struggling with hormonal imbalances. It is recommended especially in case of severe PMS, and troublesome menopausal symptoms.
