Male PMS - Is it real?
Wild Yam Extract
Just a quick question, please. I bought a "natural progesterone cream" which says there is an active ingredient, only I don't know what it is in this cream, or what it will do for my progesterone level. Can you tell me where the natural progesterone that's listed as the "active incredient" in natural progesterone cream and other progesterone products is derived from? I have a concern that it comes from the wild yam extract that is often listed as "other ingredients." And I can't use a product that claims it's progesterone comes from the extract.
Thank you for easing my mind before I use it!
Thank you for your email! This is a good question to ask!
By the early 1950's, progesterone-like chemical compounds were found in thousands of plants, with the most abundant concentration being in the wild yam. It was found that the simple addition of hydrochloric acid and warm water coverts diosgenin to natural progesterone. The progesterone produced in this way is natural and exactly the same chemically, as human progesterone. As an herbal extract, Wild Yam appears to be free of any major adverse effects (Perhaps this is because it is all natural. This also makes it perfect for production of natural progesterone cream.) In fact, these wild yam tubers have been used in some cultures as a coffee substitute. It helps support the spleen, lungs and kidneys.
Wild Yam Extract is not Progesterone.
Wild Mexican Yam contains significant concentrations of diosgenin, which is one of nature's finest sources of natural progesterone.
Diosgenin is found in other plants as well, but not in amounts significant enough to be of value. Diosgenin has to be converted into Natural Progesterone scientifically. There are no enzymes in the human body that will convert diosgenin, which is the active component of wild yams, into progesterone. So conversion of Diosgenin into progesterone is done scientifically in labs. Diosgenin is still very useful in the body and has been used by phytotherapists for centuries as an adaptagen.

A little more information about progesterone, for those who are interested.
A woman�s ovaries make two hormones, estrogen and progesterone. When these
hormones are out of balance, hormone related illnesses can emerge.
Progesterone is essential for survival and its deficiency can cause a wide range of problems. Natural Progesterone cream applied topically is stored in the fatty tissues ready for use as needed by the body to reverse the toxic effects of estrogen dominance.
John Lee, M.D. had a great site about natural progesterone and its many benefits, but for some reason it doesn't seem to be available anymore..
National Progesterone Advisory Service in Australia is another excellent resource for learning about the effects of progesterone, and to find other sources of good natural progesterone creams.
