Yam root (latin: dioscorea) contains the substance diosgenin. This substance stimulates the endogenous production of DHEA in the adrenal cortex and helps to maintain healthy DHEA levels. Dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA) is a natural hormone that is converted into both oestrogen and testosterone in the body. One study showed that men suffering from impotency problems had low levels of DHEA.
The diosgenin extracted from yams root is classified as a natural progesterone. The menopause usually is characterised by a decreased progesterone production. This causes irregular menstruation. Related to this are the emergence of mood swings and irritability, which can be alleviated by the natural progesterone.
