"AT LAST" Wild Yam Cream and Gels
Saturday, April 2nd 2005
Now you have a natural choice
In the 1940's, the scientific community discovered Wild Yam. They found progesterone and estrogen could inexpensively be synthesized from diosgenin, the active constituent found in Wild Yam root. Wild yam has been used by many cultures for over 2,000 years. In Chinese medicine it was first mentioned in the Pen Tsao Ching in 26 B.C.
Plant compounds containing diosgenin, found in the At Last Naturals (previously Born Again) potent formulations, can help support the body's normal natural functions associated with menopause and PMS.
PMS, like Menopause, is caused by a progesterone and estrogen imbalance. The symptoms associated with PMS may vary from menopausal symptoms, but relief can be achieved by utilizing some of the same natural alternatives.
"At Last there are choices."
At Last Naturals was one of the first companies to research and develop natural alternatives for helping manage menopause and PMS. Their line of Wild Yam products were developed by women, for women, and are based on the philosophy that "joy in life is a question of balance." To achieve balance, there are a number of choices that may be perfect for your individual needs
"At Last" Wild Yam Extra Strength Gel (12%)
These are two diosgenin rich topically applied products that are easily absorbed and have great moisturizing properties. Unlike other products that use powdered root, only At Last Naturals is made from fresh whole Mexican Wild Yam root. A complex six week process insures that freshness and potency are at the highest levels.
Both of these products are easily absorbed. Results have shown that the cream is an effective alternative for most women. The extra strength gel is recommended for more stubborn menopausal problems.
"At Last" Vaginal Moisturizing Gel
Formulated to help naturally provide soothing relief for vaginal dryness and help restore a woman's natural lubrication. This safe, non-irritating formula can be used as often as needed.
The "At Last Naturals" Philosophy
Their goals are simple: each At Last Naturals product must be effective for its purpose, safe to use, of desired assayable potency and derived from the most beneficial high quality natural source.
