Women's health, today and yesterday

From the traditions handed down from the time of the Aztecs and from the accounts of many modern-day women, a natural remedy that targets and relieves female discomfort: menstrual pain, hot flushes, vaginal dryness, fatigue, tension, irritability and insomnia.

What is Wild Yam?

Wild Yam 100 e Wild Yam 300 is a supplement that contains the root of Villosa Dioscorea, commonly referred to as Wild Yam. It is produced accordance with high quality standards. It contains 20% diosgenin and is allergen-free.

Use and mechanism of action

Villosa Dioscorea is a spontaneous plant, native to North and Central America and traditionally used by the Aztecs in Mexico to soothe menstrual pain and the pain of childbirth. Nowadays it is used as a phytohormone and is considered an excellent remedy for alleviating the characteristic symptoms of premenstrual syndrome and menopause due to substances such as diosgenin and phytosterols contained in its roots. In the 1940s, diosgenin took on a prominent role due to its structural similarity to progesterone, the most well-known of the female hormones, produced in the ovaries and in the adrenal gland. Diosgenin is the object of ongoing studies with controversial results. Some say that our body is unable to use diosgenin and therefore refute its effectiveness as a remedy; others argue that our body is somehow able to use it as a phyto-progestin that imitates the action of progesterone. Others are convinced that our body can use diosgenin to produce other hormones, including progesterone and DHEA. New, detailed studies are needed to provide an understanding of the exact mechanism that explains the use of diosgenin in the body. The truth is that people who take Dioscorea Villosa feel its beneficial effects. How can we ignore this evidence? How can we not attribute value to improving the wellbeing of so many women? Hence our desire to continue promoting the use of this phytoextract. Several research studies also confirm that oestrogen hormones are important in the woman, not only in respect of reproductive function, but also in respect of a series of processes that involve the centres responsible for regulating  body temperature, satiety, blood pressure, mood and physical and mental well-being.

Suggested use: 1 capsule daily, with a large glass of water, preferably at night.
