Wild yam (Dioscorea villosa) is a twining, tuberous vine. One species is native to North America; another is native to China. Both contain diosgenin and have similar medicinal properties. There are an estimated 600 species of yam in the genus Dioscorea.

Wild yam is a plant that people have used for centuries in alternative medicine. Potential medicinal uses for wild yam include the treatment of menopause symptoms, rheumatoid arthritis, diabetes, and muscular cramps.

How to take it?

Dosage:

In order to receive the therapeutic benefits of wild yam, take 1/2 teaspoon of tincture three or four times a day or 500 mg of wild yam in capsule form twice a day.  If you prefer, drink a cup of wild yam tea three times a day.

Guidelines for use:

Have wild yam supplements or tincture with food to minimize stomach upset.  To make wild yam tea, pour a cup of very hot water over 1 or 2 teaspoons of the dried herb and let steep for 15 minutes.  You can also add other soothing herbs to this tea – valerian or peppermint, for example – when using it for digestive disorders.
