Wild Yam Root has traditionally been used for its benefits in women’s reproductive health, including premenstrual syndrome and menopausal problems. Its antispasmodic properties may be supportive for menstrual cramps, relaxing muscles, soothing nerves, relieving pain, poor circulation and neuralgia.

Wild yam (non-GMO) is also known to be supportive to overall liver health, it is believed that wild yam root’s ability to support healthy cholesterol and blood pressure levels indirectly helps the liver by increasing its efficiency and reducing stress.

Its steroidal saponins are also anti-inflammatory, making it a useful herb when supporting a healthy inflammation response. Its diuretic effect, combined with the antispasmodic action may, soothe painful conditions of the urinary tract.

Traditional Chinese Medicine has used wild yam for at least 2,000 years. Our raw wild yam is wild harvested in the USA.
