History of Use:
In addition, Wild Yam has been used in traditional medicine for digestive issues, such as indigestion, bloating, and gas. Some studies have also suggested that Wild Yam has antispasmodic and anti-inflammatory effects, which may contribute to its traditional use for menstrual and joint pain relief. However, further research is needed to fully understand its potential benefits and to establish safe and effective doses for use.
Scientific research supports some of the traditional uses of Wild Yam, especially when it comes to joint health conditions related to inflammation. Studies show that Wild Yam has a number of valuable properties, making it a useful treatment for pain and inflammation. In vitro studies have found that the root's ethanol extract has antioxidant properties. Additionally, researchers believe that Wild Yam may also support liver health.
Over 600 species of the plant known as Wild Yam exist, but only about 12 of them are edible, including Dioscorea villosa.

4 droppers of Wild Yam Tincture make such a difference in my post menopausal hot flashes. I don't think I could live without it. I like Secrets of the Tribe because it has just enough sweetness to make it easy to go down without tasting bitter or musky like some other wild yam tinctures.
I like the organic wild yam extract. It works great. It was packaged great and arrived early.
I have been using this to soothe my stomach after large meals. I take it with water as directed and I don't even taste it.
