Product Description

Wild Yam Cream

Wild Yam Cream is a Four Elements Herbals formula that has been specifically designed to support normal musculoskeletal function. Also referred to as Dioscorea Villosa Extract, this herbal supplement is prepared from Certified Organically Grown rhizomes of Dioscorea villosa vines in eastern Kentucky. The Wild Yam plant has been widely used in alternative medicine for centuries to help treat rheumatoid arthritis and muscular cramps, as well as diabetes and menopause symptoms. It is also used as a natural alternative to estrogen therapy for women experiencing menstrual problems and infertility, though more scientific research is required to support these uses. Overall, Wild Yam Cream is a potent product created to help maintain a healthy hormonal balance.

How Wild Yam Cream Works

The Four Elements Therapeutic line of formula contains products that feature powerful healing herbs particularly effective for chronic health problems. Gentle enough for sensitive skins, these formulas provide therapeutic herbal support for individuals facing hormonal imbalance. With both occasional and daily discomforts in mind, the manufacturer offers a product that contributes to daily wellness.

What is Wild Yam?

Wild Yam is a diosgenin-containing plant. This chemical (diosgenin) can influence the production of DHEA, estrogen, and other useful hormones in the human body. This means that consuming wild yam can be regarded as a natural way of promoting key hormones, each being tied to a wide range of medical benefits. Wild yam can also be applied topically in the form of a cream. In this case, diosgenin is converted into DHEA, estrogen, and other steroids (in the laboratory) from both the bulb and the root of the plant. The resulting diosgenin-containing extract (meaning concentrated diosgenin) is then applied to specific key areas of the human body (i.e., the wrists and abdomen) to deliver the intended therapeutic effects.

Potential Medical Uses of Wild Yam Cream

Wild Yam may be used to help combat:

  • Menopause symptoms – Using it as an alternative to estrogen therapy, it can either stabilize or increase estrogen levels to help relieve symptoms.

  • Rheumatoid arthritis – It is believed that wild yam features anti-inflammatory qualities, which is why it can be used to treat joint inflammation and help alleviate stiffness and pain in individuals with rheumatoid arthritis.

  • Glucose levels regulation – Another chemical compound wild yam contains is called dioscoretine, which has been associated with the regulation of blood sugar levels in individuals with diabetes.

  • Muscular pain and cramps – Traditional medicine practitioners use wild yam for its anti-spasmodic attributes as a means to help lessen muscle spasms. The particular qualities can contribute to the reduction of muscular pain and cramps, especially those related to PMS (premenstrual syndrome).

Note: These claims have not been evaluated by the FDA.

How to use Wild Yam Cream

Apply a small amount (dime-sized) to the wrists and abdomen two times a day unless your doctor instructs otherwise. The cream contains steroidal saponins and other plant compounds that promote a state of wellbeing and overall health.

The exact amount of wild yam you should use depends on several factors, including your health condition and age. Speak to your doctor for precise directions.
