We use a high strength Napiers fluid extract of Wild Yam which contains diosgenin to make our cream. Make it a part of your night-time routine for a nourishing cream that helps you drift off into a peaceful sleep. If the item comes direct from a manufacturer, it may be delivered in non-retail packaging, such as a plain or unprinted box or plastic bag.

Menopausal Symptom Relief: Some individuals use wild yam supplements or creams to alleviate symptoms of menopause, such as hot flashes and mood swings. There may be other medications that wild yam can interact with, but further investigation is needed. It is possible that wild yam might reduce this inflammation and have a positive effect on symptoms, but there is little evidence to support this. Some companies have been sanctioned because the product did not contain the listed ingredients or contained dangerous contaminants. The United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) have yet to evaluate wild yam for its safety or effectiveness.Wild yam also goes by these names - American yam, Chinese yam, colic root, devil's bone, four-leaf yam, Mexican yam, rheumatism root, shan yao and yuma. Symptom scores showed a minor effect of both placebo and active treatment on diurnal flushing number and severity and total non-flushing symptom scores, and on nocturnal sweating after placebo, but no statistical difference between placebo and active creams. Wild yam root contains diosgenin - a plant steroid that scientists can manipulate to produce steroids, such as progesterone, oestrogen, cortisone, and dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA), which are then used for medical purposes. Wild yam is a plant that has been promoted as natural DHEA because it contains diosgenin, which can be used in the lab to create estrogen and DHEA. This chemical, which has also been recognised as being a phytosteroid, is reportedly similar to the steroids that are naturally produced by our body.

As well as having a relatively low GI, some of the sugars that are present in Chinese yam, in particular, exist as polysaccharides, multiple sugar units connected together with chemical bonds. However, there have been no studies of the safety or efficacy of these preparations in the management of menopausal symptoms.
