Other health claims

Though human research is lacking, wild yam root may provide a number of other benefits, such as:

  • Lowered blood sugar levels. In a study in mice, diosgenin extract significantly reduced blood sugar levels and helped prevent diabetes-induced kidney injury.
  • Reduced cholesterol levels. In a 4-week study in rats, diosgenin extract significantly lowered total and LDL (bad) cholesterol levels.
  • Potential anticancer effects. Preliminary test-tube studies suggest that wild yam root extract may safeguard against or slow the progression of breast cancer.
