MoonMaid Botanicals has been providing women discomfort relief with our Wild Yam Cream and Wild Yam Salve for 29 years, through various complex hormone combinations, both bio-identical and prescription. Amid the confusion of mixed messages and claims, these women often land at MoonMaid Botanicals.
Understanding Other Wild Yam Creams
There's a great deal of confusion surrounding "true" wild yam products and bio-identical products. Bio-identical products contain hormones such as progesterone, estrogen, and sometimes testosterone.
Natural herbal-based wild yam products, however, contain none of these. While some "wild yam creams" in natural food stores claim to be pure, they most often contain bio-identical progesterone. Unfortunately, the type of wild yam in these products—whether oil, powder, or extract—is often unclear. To ensure you know what you're buying, always read the label carefully.
The cosmetics and personal care market has seen a surge in new products under the guise of Wild Yam CREAM that surprisingly lack an essential component of one — water. These creams are marketed as highly concentrated and pure, with claims to offer exceptional benefits. However, the absence of water, which traditionally helps to create the creamy texture and aids in the absorption of active ingredients, raises questions about their efficacy. Customers are urged to be cautious and discerning, ensuring that the products they choose are not only authentic but also formulated correctly to deliver the promised benefits.
The Importance of Progesterone
Progesterone, while a "secondary" hormone, plays a crucial role in maintaining the balance of our estrogens and androgens. It's necessary for osteoblast production in our bones, and has a significant impact on our skin integrity.
Therefore, it's vital for our sex drive, strong bones, and radiant skin. Low progesterone levels can result in common issues like PMS and irregular cycles, and more severe conditions like endometriosis, fibroids, and cysts.
Role of Estrogen in Hormone Balance
Estrogen is another key player in hormone balance. Its functions include preparing the body for pregnancy, regulating the menstrual cycle, and maintaining bone strength. In addition to this, estrogen has a significant role in mood regulation, cognitive function, skin health, and cardiovascular health.
Like progesterone, balance is crucial for estrogen. When estrogen levels are too high or too low, it can lead to a variety of health issues. High estrogen levels—commonly referred to as estrogen dominance—can cause symptoms like breast tenderness, irregular periods, mood swings, and fatigue. On the other hand, low estrogen levels can lead to symptoms such as hot flashes, night sweats, mood changes, and dry skin.
Understanding the role of estrogen in hormone balance helps to highlight the importance of maintaining a healthy hormonal equilibrium. Our wild yam cream is known to aid in boosting natural progesterone production, which then leads to regulation of estrogen levels, further enhancing hormonal harmony and overall health.
The Solution: A Topical Wild Yam Lotion
We offer a true herbal formula - a wild yam infused oil, blended into a cream or salve for topical application. Completely hormone-free, these creams and salves are the preferred choice for women who've had cancer, fibroids, or endometriosis linked to environmental or xeno-estrogens. Our wild yam creams and salves naturally assist the body with progesterone production.
Our Wild Yam Cream assists the body with progesterone production naturally. Topical application is more effective as it bypasses the liver, ensuring the crucial alkaloid, diosgenin, isn't destroyed, thereby maintaining its potency.
Herbal products do not convert directly into progesterone but seem to assist the body with progesterone production. MoonMaid makes a wild yam cream, Women's ProMeno Wild Yam Cream.
