Wild Yams Plus - 90 capsules

Wild Yams: active and vital even after turning 40

Botanical: Dioscorea
Chinese: Huang YaoZi
Sanskrit: Vidarikand
English: yam

The yam root belongs to the starchy vegetable varieties. It is a tuber of the family Dioscoreaceae and is available in over 800 different species. The yam root is mainly found in the tropics, where it is mostly cultivated as a crop. The main areas of cultivation are currently in Africa, more precisely in Nigeria, the Ivory Coast and Ghana. However, the root is also cultivated in Haiti and Colombia.

Under the ground, the yam root usually reaches a size of 2 metres and a weight of about 60 kg. Although the roots are very similar to sweet potatoes, they are not related to them.
While the yam root is rather rare in European countries, in Africa, South America and the Caribbean it has a firm place in regional cuisine and is considered an important supplier of starch (carbohydrates).

What's in the yam root?

The Dioscorea root primarily provides complex carbohydrates which are digested more slowly by the body and therefore do not cause the blood sugar level to rise. The root also contains soluble fibres and B vitamins (riboflavin, niacin, pantothenic acid and folic acid). Vitamin C can also be found as well as the minerals calcium, magnesium, potassium, copper, manganese and iron.
However, the most interesting ingredient is diosgenin. This is a steroidal sapogenin. Steroids belong to the lipids and have gained a bad reputation through abuse in the bodybuilding sector. In the quantities produced in the body, however, they are harmless and have a number of important functions.
The best known steroid is cholesterol, from which steroid hormones such as vitamin D (calcitriol), cortisol and sex hormones are made.
Sapogenins belong to the triterpenes and are common plant substances.

The wild yam extract in this product is standardised to 20% diosgenin, which is equivalent to 60mg per capsule.

Antioxidants

Everyone has now heard about free radicals and knows that an excess in the body can damage the cells. Free radicals are highly reactive and aggressive oxygen molecules that are created as intermediates in our metabolism and are even important in small quantities, especially for the functioning of our immune system. Normally the body is able to neutralise free radicals, but external influences contribute to the rapid multiplication of radicals, i.e. oxidative stress. These include smoking, competitive and high-performance sports, UV rays and pollutants.
In this case, it makes sense to supply the organism with so-called antioxidants from outside via food or food supplements. The best known antioxidants are vitamin C and E, the carotenoid beta-carotene and the two trace elements selenium and zinc, which we have combined with the wild yam root in this product.
