Wild yam contains phytochemicals – steroid saponins, “hormone predecessors”, initial building material for DHEA synthesis (dehydroepiandrosterone – testosterone’s predecessor), and pregnenolone that regulates hormonal balance in woman’s body, helps to energize, and promotes the feeling of wellbeing.
Phytoprogestins in wild yam are not hormones, but can positively influence the hormonal status in women, regulate menstrual cycle, tone up female reproductive organs, especially during menopause, help with osteoporosis prevention.
According to scientists the prohormone level in human body starts decreasing as early as at the age of 20-25. The research demonstrated a direct relation between the decreasing level of prohormones and such conditions as apathy, drowsiness, obesity, and even diseases like rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, and osteoporosis. It was discovered that DHEA level in people, who were ill, was much lower than in healthy people and it didn’t depend on age.
The scientists suggest that DHEA blood level is a reliable index of overall health condition. It is not a secret that biological age can differ from person’s real age. Therefore by increasing the level of prohormones we can tone up and rejuvenate the body.
