Wild yam for fertility?

It is actually the root of the yam that is used for medical and fertility purposes. Those roots are converted into either creams or capsule forms that are easily absorbed by the body. The real benefit of wild yam is that it releases a very potent natural form of progesterone that the body absorbs and uses up quickly. The benefits of wild yam are so varied, it really does offer up a lot of benefits for the body. Of course, providing the body with much needed natural progesterone is very important, but that is not even close to all that wild yam can do. It also can be an aid to male fertility by improving blood flow to the reproductive organs, and also improving sperm quality and motility. Wild yam can also balance out testosterone levels and helps in making sure that the body is getting enough nutrients and makes sure that there are enough vitamins and minerals getting into the body.

Wild yam for women

For women, wild yam offers even more benefits than it does for the guys! The act of providing the body with natural progesterone is such a great benefit. Progesterone is so important not only for aiding in fertility but also for maintaining a healthy pregnancy as well. Progesterone is the hormone that makes sure that implantation takes place and a lack of progesterone is actually the most common cause of miscarriage in women. A lack of progesterone can cause many, many difficulties in conceiving and also carrying a pregnancy to term. Progesterone can also help when trying to conceive because it can help with balancing and regulating the menstrual cycle and ovulation, which can really help you know when it is most likely for you to get pregnant.

    Trying to get pregnant depends on a lot of factors such as your eating habits, your lifestyle and any illness you may have. Being overweight could also affect your chances of conceiving especially if the extra weight caused a lot of other diseases like diabetes. It is best to maintain a healthy weight before you try to get pregnant. You can also boost your fertility by avoiding stress, alcohol and tobacco, eating more green vegetables and getting enough sleep.

    Yes, consumption of wild yam can increase your chances of getting pregnant. Wild yam has sapogenin called diosgenin, which is considered to be a precursor of progesterone. The effects of Diosgenin are similar to estrogen in such a way that it helps boost the reproductive system.

    Yes, wild yams can improve your chances of having twins in such a way that it increases hyperovulation. Aside from eating wild yams, increasing your intake of dairy, taking folic acid supplements and gaining more weight can also increase your likelihood of getting pregnant
    with twins.
