Discover the Power of Wild Yam: Nature’s Support for Hormonal Balance

A super popular and well-known ingredient (not to be confused with sweet potato; different plant families!), wild yam root has been celebrated for its natural compound diosgenin, a phytoestrogen (or plant-based oestrogen), which assists in giving your hormones a naturally gentle nudge in the right direction. This helps ease those pesky symptoms such as PMS, menopause, mood swings, cramps, vaginal dryness, libido and hot flushes and help promote a sense of hormonal harmony.

The Wow Behind Wild Yam

At the heart of wild yam’s benefits are phytoestrogens—plant-based compounds that mimic oestrogen in the body. Phytoestrogens can help support hormonal balance, especially for women experiencing menopause or other hormonal fluctuations. These compounds interact with oestrogen receptors in the body, helping to maintain a more balanced hormonal environment.

How Does Wild Yam Help Hormones?

Wild yam’s phytoestrogens don’t actually increase oestrogen levels but support your body's own hormone regulation mechanisms, just the way nature intended! This can be particularly helpful for naturally managing symptoms associated with hormonal imbalances, such as hot flushes, mood swings, PMS, libido and menstrual discomfort.

How do phytoestrogens work?

Phytoestrogens are plant-derived compounds that have a similar structure to oestrogen. They can interact with oestrogen receptors in the body. So when oestrogen is deficient, this is a great natural way to help supply the body with what it's lacking.

What is Diosgenin In Wild Yam?

Diosgenin is a phytoestrogen, that occurs naturally in the roots of wild yam, that binds to oestrogen receptors, mimicking the effects of natural hormones. Diosgenin is the building blocks your body needs for various hormones, supporting the body’s natural hormone production processes.
It’s become super cool and popular for its potential health benefits, particularly in the realm of hormonal balance and women’s health. It has the ability to influence the production of much needed hormones, including oestrogen. When oestrogen becomes too low, imbalances occur and strange and unwanted things start happening…cue hot flushes, weight gain, mood swings, low libido, cycle issues, irritability…need we go on?

What Is Oestrogen Deficiency And How Does It Affect Women During Menopause?

As women approach menopause, the natural decline in oestrogen levels can lead to a variety of uncomfortable symptoms that impact overall well-being. Oestrogen deficiency occurs when the ovaries reduce their production of this crucial hormone, typically during peri-menopause and post-menopause. Common symptoms include:
Hot Flushes and Night Sweats: Oestrogen is needed to maintain a wide thermostatic temperature range for the hypothalamus.  When oestrogen is depleted only a slight change in temperature is required to set us off into a sweat response.

Mood Swings and Cognitive Changes: Fluctuating oestrogen levels can influence mood, memory, and concentration.

Vaginal Dryness and Decreased Libido: Shifts in oestrogen levels can affect vaginal lubrication and sexual desire.


Urinary Health: Oestrogen levels can impact the urinary tract, influencing the risk of infections, night time urinating, frequency and urgency issues and incontinence.

Skin Changes: Oestrogen plays a role in maintaining skin elasticity and moisture.

Cardiovascular Health: Changes in oestrogen levels can affect heart health.
