A Brief History About Wild Yam
Wild Yam has been used by many cultures for over 2,000 years. In Chinese medicine it was first mentioned in the Pen Tsao Ching in 26 B.C. In the 1800’s, Lydia Pinkham’s tonic for women had many of the herbs that are found to be most effective for menopausal complaints. Wild Yam was in the original formula along with other phyto-chemically rich herbal extracts. In the 1940’s, the scientific community discovered Wild Yam. An article published by Professor Russel Marker showed progesterone and estrogen could inexpensively be synthesized from diosgenin, the active constituent found in the Wild Yam Root. Until then, production of these was based upon costly multi-step extractions from animals. Today, Wild Yam has gained notoriety as one of the best natural sources of phytohormones. The use of Wild Yam can offer the user an alternative with no side effects or toxicity unlike the prescription counterparts.
