What is Wild Yam Root Extract?
Wild Yam Root Extract is said to help treat numerous conditions, though scientific research on these uses is either limited or largely disproves them.
Wild yam root contains diosgenin. It’s a plant steroid that scientists can manipulate to produce steroids, such as progesterone, estrogen, cortisone, and dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA), which are then used for medical purposes (1Trusted Source, 3Trusted Source).
Thus, some advocates assert that wild yam root extract has benefits similar to those offered by these steroids in your body, providing a natural alternative to estrogen therapy or progesterone creams.Yet, studies disprove this, showing that your body cannot turn diosgenin into these steroids (3Trusted Source).
Instead, diosgenin requires chemical reactions that can only take place in a laboratory setting to convert it into steroids like progesterone, estrogen, and DHEA (3Trusted Source).As a result, scientific evidence doesn’t currently support wild yam root extract’s effectiveness for treating conditions associated with hormonal imbalances, such as PMS, low sex drive, infertility, and weakened bones.
