Wild Yam Tuber Extract
Yams (Dioscorea) is a perennial, herbaceous plant that forms root tubers as a means of over-indulgence. The shape and size of these tubers can be very different. Yams is grown worldwide, either cultivated or wild, and is used primarily as a medicinal or nutritional plant. Their root tubers are rich in minerals, B vitamins and provitamin A. However, only very few species can be eaten raw, otherwise they have a toxic effect.
One of the species that is also suitable for raw consumption is the Chinese yams (Dioscorea opposita), whose roots are the basis of our Wild Yam Tuber Extract .
