Wild Yam Cream

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 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."
