Recommendations and Research*: There is a common misconception that Wild yam contains progesterone. This stems from the early use of wild yam to produce synthetic progesterone, a chemical process that does not occur in the human body simply from consuming wild yam. Claims that wild yam is a "natural progesterone" are simply not true. This, unfortunately, led many in the scientific and medical community to discard wild yam as a worthless scam. But, wild yam contains diosgenin, dioscin, phytosterols, sapponins, tanins and other phytoestrogens that make it an effective and highly regarded medicine in natural healing circles.

While there has been little research into wild yam, other than its use in making synthetic progesterone, many native American healers and highly respected herbalists lend credence to its medicinal properties. Susan Weed, author of "Breast Cancer? Breast Health!" suggests many uses for the herb and attests to its effectiveness in her practice.

Safety Issues: Wild yam, a commonly eaten food, is on the FDA "GRAS" list of foods "Generally Regarded as Safe." It should not be consumed in high doses by pregnant women.

*Greenbush Bio-Chelated Extracts: Alcohol-free, full medicinal potency (1ml = 1000mg), 2 to 3 times the strength of the average herbal extract.

Until Bio-Chelation there was simply no good way to make a potent alcohol-free extract. Greenbush alcohol free extracts begin with organic alcohol regardless of whether the final product contains alcohol or not. After finishing the first step in the plant extraction, an additional step is performed to remove the alcohol. This is done by utilizing a proprietary cold extraction process called Bio-Chelation®. Bio-Chelation® describes the cold process vacuum distillation method, which removes all the alcohol initially used to obtain the good herbal extract.

Holistically Balanced Herbal Extracts: It is important to note that a cold extraction process, as opposed to a heat extraction process, helps maintain the full spectrum, or Holistic BalanceTM of the plant's constituents in the final product. The end-result is an alcohol-free extract containing the essential properties of the complete herb in a base of vegetable glycerin and water. (Vegetable glycerin is used because it can help to bind certain plant constituents, is natural to the body, easily absorbed, tastes sweet without affecting blood sugar levels, and acts as a good solvent and carrier for the plant constituents).
