The Power of Yam Root: Natural Remedy of Native Americans

Yam root, often confused with sweet potatoes, is botanically related to lilies or grasses. Despite its similarity to sweet potatoes, it is globally appreciated for its nutrients and effects. In particular, the Mexican Wild Yam, one of over 800 species, is cultivated worldwide for its powerful ingredients and positive effects. The extract of Wild Yam is considered hormone-regulating and a potent antioxidant that inhibits the formation of free radicals in the body.

Traditional Use by Indigenous Peoples

Indigenous American peoples were already aware of the positive effects of Wild Yam. The bone-strengthening and revitalizing effects, in particular, were valued. Yam root contains a variety of vitamins (B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, B9, C) and minerals (copper, iron, manganese, potassium, calcium, magnesium, phosphorus) that support vital processes in the body.

Hormone Regulation through Diosgenin

Indigenous women used Yam root as a contraceptive and to alleviate women's and menopausal symptoms. The key active ingredient is the hormone Diosgenin, a precursor to the human sex hormone progesterone. Progesterone plays a crucial role in the menstrual cycle and promotes the resting phase of the uterus.

Contraceptive Method in Modern Society

Although indigenous women successfully used Yam root as a contraceptive, this is considered unpromising in modern societies. However, the birth control pill is based on Diosgenin found in Wild Yam, which is converted to progesterone in the laboratory.

Despite its historical use as a contraceptive, Yam root should not be considered a reliable contraceptive method in our modern world. Instead, it contributes to daily well-being and balance.
