    Chinese Yam, also known as Dioscorea opposita or Shan Yao, has been used as a tonic in traditional Chinese medicine.

    The yam is very beneficial for women. The root of Chinese yam is a natural plant-based estrogen which can help control estrogen in the body. 

    Chinese yam extracts are often promoted to women as a natural alternative to postmenopausal hormone therapy - it can even be a remedy for hot flushes.

    The Chinese yam can also be used as a remedy for premenstrual syndrome and menstrual disorders.
