Wild Yam Cream
& Your Progesterone Level

Many pre menopausal women use wild yam cream as a natural treatment for menopause symptoms.

Wild Yam Root

The roots and rhizomes of wild yams are the parts that are used to produce wild yam remedies. They contain diosgenin, which is a substance that can be converted to progesterone.


Can It Raise Your Progesterone Level?

Yes and no. The only wild yam products that can boost your progesterone level are the products that have been made in a laboratory.

Scientists begin with wild yams. They manipulate the yams' progesterone precursor, diosgenin, into progesterone that is molecularly the same as the progesterone in your body, making it bioidentical progesterone.

If you buy wild yam products that have not been through this laboratory process, they will not raise your low progesterone levels.

But, wild yams do contain phytoestrogens (plant estrogens), so they will give you some estrogen-boosting benefits even if they have not been manipulated in a lab.


Wild Yam Benefits

If you use bioidentical wild yam, here is a list of benefits that you can expect to see from using it.

  • Healthy Skin: Progesterone helps to moisturize skin, making it supple and young.

  • Sleep: If you can't sleep at night, it could be from a low progesterone level.
