FSC-Wild Yam 500mg (90 tablet)Wild Yam has been used for years to help alleviate the symptoms of menopause and PMS that are brought about by hormone imbalance. Wild Yam contains a very high concentration of a substance called diosgenin which may have a similar molecular structure to progesterone - one of the two female sex hormones. Diosgenin may have the ability to lock-on to the hormone receptors in the body creating an progesterone-like effect which can help restore hormone balance. Diosgenin is used to manufacture many hormones used in contraceptive pills and HRT treatments including nature-identical and synthetic progesterones.

Angelica sinensis Dong Quai Benefits There are many species of the angelica plant and dong quai or angelica sinensis is one of the most popular angelica herbs especially in China. This herb which is an important element in traditional Chinese medicine is also known as the Chinese angelica and female ginseng. This is because of its effectiveness in treating gynecological problems and many other women's conditions and diseases such as recovering from childbirth and pelvic pain. Two of the active ingredients present in angelica sinensis are ferulic acid and coumarin. Both these compounds and others such as phytosterols, polysaccharides and flavonoids produce analgesic, anti inflammatory, antispasmodic and sedative effects. Angelica root is able to suppress muscle spasms and also reduce pain. It is able to relax muscles including the uterus and dilate blood vessels. Because of its muscle relaxing effect, it is used in the treatment of premenstrual syndrome or PMS. It is also used to restore menstrual cycles especially after stopping the use of contraceptive pills and in the treatment of amenorrhea or the absence of menstruation. Based on extensive studies done by Chinese and Japanese researchers, angelica sinensis has the potential to support normal blood pressure levels because of its antispasmodic properties. Chinese traditional medicine also uses angelica root to treat inflammation, headaches and nerve pains. Angelica root is also used in treating fatigue and mild anemia. Dong quai root extract is available in capsules, liquid extract, tablets, root powder and tonic tea. Taking the root extract may help reduce hot flashes, moodiness, lack of drive and restores energy. Angelica sinensis root extract is not recommended for pregnant women. High dosage of this herbal extract may cause side effects such as diarrhea and sun sensitivity. It is also not recommended for people who are taking anticoagulant prescription medications.

Health Benefits Of Eating Yams Wild Yam is believed to be a wonderful, natural hormone regulator. The herb contains compounds that are similar to female hormones (progesterone and estrogen), which have been helpful for female disorders, including premenstrual syndrome (PMS), menopausal-related symptoms and dysmenorrhea (painful menstruation). Moreover, Wild Yam contains a natural steroid called dehydro-epiandrosterone (DHEA) that is said to rejuvenate and give vigor to lovemaking. With further regard to hormonal support, Wild Yams once provided the sole source material (diosgenin) from which birth control pills and sex hormones are derived. This supports the herb's historical use in folk applications when used for contraception, easing the pains of childbirth, restoring hormonal balance after birth and alleviating nausea during pregnancy (no longer recommended). Wild Yam is thought to be an antispasmodic that relieves muscular cramps, abdominal cramps, ovarian and uterine pain, irritable bowel syndrome, spasmodic hiccoughs, spasmodic asthma and menstrual cramps (a further support for women's complaints). The steroidal saponins in Wild Yams have provided the source material from which cortisones are derived and are used in the preparation of steroids by the pharmaceutical industry. This has been beneficial in cases of inflammation and easing painful arthritis and rheumatism. Wild Yam is said to be soothing on the nerves (and body) and beneficial for neuralgia anywhere in the body, pains in the urinary tract and digestive problems. The herb has been used to expel gas from the stomach and bowels, and not only relieve wind, but also colic. Wild Yam is considered a liver cleaner that has been used for stagnation of the liver and gallbladder and has sometimes been called one of the best natural relievers of jaundice, bilious colic and nausea. Its hepatic qualities are thought to support and stimulate the liver, gallbladder and spleen, and increase the flow of bile.
