The herb Mexican Wild yam, Dioscorea barbasco, has been used historically in herbal medicine for women's health. Some of the actions of wild yam include smooth muscle relaxation and a mild diuretic effect. There has been some confusion in information provided by companies producing wild yam products. Yam does not convert into progesterone in the body. The conversion can only be done in a laboratory. The body may absorb wild yam extract through the skin, which may in turn have some effect on menopausal symptoms, yet research on both oral and topical applications of wild yam extract demonstrate no change in progesterone levels in the body.
