Scientific Name: Dioscorea L
Wild Yam root (Dioscorea villosa) has been used for many years to support women with their reproductive system health. Wild Yam aids a variety of women’s fertility issues. Most people think that Wild Yam is for menopausal women only, but it has many beneficial actions for women in their childbearing years and is generally considered to be one of the best fertility herbs for enhance your chances of having twins.
Ovulation, Hyper-ovulation and Pregnancy
Wild Yam is rarely used alone, it is best combined with other supportive herbs, depending on the fertility issue being treated.
It is believed that a chemical in wild yams stimulates the ovaries, resulting also in releasing more than one egg (hyperovulation) during ovulation hence increasing the chances of having multiples.
Wild yam root also contains phytoestrogens that can stimulate the secretion of the follicle stimulating hormone (FSH). This can stimulate the ovaries to mature eggs. In women who hyperovulate, higher levels of FSH were found, which in turn led to the assumption of “more hormone, more oocytes”
When wild yam is used with certain other herbs for infertility, it optimizes estrogen levels and improves the quality and quantity of cervical mucus, if the cervical mucus is too viscous or too sparse.
Also taunted as a “natural alterative” to estrogen therapy,vaginal dryness in older women, PMS; menstrual cramps, weak bones (osteoporosis), increasing energy and sexual drive in men and women, and breast enlargement
A clinical summary for healthcare professionals at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center shares, “Derived from the root of a twining vine, wild yam was traditionally used for its antispasmodic and anti-inflammatory properties to treat menopausal symptoms, gastrointestinal ailments, muscle spasm, asthma, joint pain, and rheumatoid arthritis.

In 2008, researchers at a university hospital in Thailand conducted a randomized, double-blinded, placebo-controlled study of P. miriﬁca in healthy postmenopausal women, ages 45 to 60, to determine how P. miriﬁca effects bone loss in humans. Fifty-one of 71 women randomly received a dose of 20, 30, and 50 mg of P. miriﬁca per day. The other 20 women in the study were given a placebo. After 24 weeks of treatment, the group taking the herb showed a 41% decrease in bone-specific alkaline phosphatase levels compared with the control group.
The researchers concluded that “Pueraria mirifica at a dose of 20, 30, and 50 mg/day for a 24-week period demonstrated an estrogen-like effect on bone turnover rate.
*Pueraria mirifica did not demonstrate an estrogen-like effect on endometrial thickness and endometrial histology
