How It Works
How It WorksThe primary commercial use of wild yam is in health supplements. The roots and bulbs are the most important part of the plant, which are harvested in the fall before the plant goes dormant. The roots are typically dried and ground into powder, which is used to prepare an extract. The most active part of this extract is diosgenin, a steroidal saponin that is used commercially to produce steroid hormones.
