Recommendations and Research: There is a common misconception that Wild yam contains progesterone. This stems from the early use of wild yam to produce synthetic progesterone, a chemical process that does not occur in the human body simply from consuming wild yam.
Claims that wild yam is a "natural progesterone" are simply not true. This, unfortunately, led many in the scientific and medical community to discard wild yam as a worthless scam. But, wild yam contains diosgenin, dioscin, phytosterols, sapponins, tanins and other phytoestrogens that make it an effective and highly regarded medicine in natural healing circles.
While there has been little research into wild yam, other than its use in making synthetic progesterone, many native American healers and highly respected herbalists lend credence to its medicinal properties.
Susan Weed, author of "Breast Cancer? Breast Health!" suggests many uses for the herb and attests to its effectiveness in her practice.
Safety Issues: Wild yam, a commonly eaten food, is on the FDA "GRAS" list of foods "Generally Regarded as Safe." It should not be consumed in high doses by pregnant women.
