HOW DOES ANNA'S WILD YAM CREAM WORK?
While there is no 'scientific' evidence that wild yam creams can transdermally deliver the benefits of their traditional herbal ingredients, there is simply no other explanation possible in light of the extensive results achieved.
Testimonies confirm our original understanding that Anna’s Wild Yam Cream was capable of much more than the false suggestion of just providing Oestrogenic benefits, it appears on the wide range of benefits that these women have experienced go beyond all of the Adrenal Cortex steroids.
The active ingredient of wild yam is Diosgenin, a Phyto Sterol which has many amazing health benefits derived from a natural bio-chemical lipid pathway which is activated by phyto sterol nutrients and aided by numerous enzymes, leading to the production of Ubiquinone, Dolichols, Squalene and Cholesterol. This pathway is known as the ‘Mevalonate pathway’.
UBIQUINONE: Is the genuine naturally produced form of Coenzyme Q10. CoQ10 is a powerhouse compound that's in nearly every cell of our body. Its health benefits are many, primarily known for its value in maintaining our most important muscle the heart, it also converts nutrients into energy, and is sometimes described as the ‘sparkplug’ in each of our cells, is also an indispensible antioxidant. Ubiquinone also assists the immune system, digestive system, hearing, vision, nervous system, metabolism, respiratory system, and skin.
DOLICHOLS: The ‘Unknowns’: Very little is commonly known about Dolichols, and the highly important roles they play!
Dolichols are responsible for the processing of Proteins. Those magic particles so important to our function and destiny are synthesized within each of our cells.
It is within this microscopic structure that amino acids are linked together into popcorn string-like peptides. Some peptides will ultimately serve for cell identification, others produce insulin because our blood sugar is rising.
The final role depends on the protein structure - Just using proteins can give hundreds of options but the addition of these sugars to the protein strand gives tens of thousands of structural options.
It is this almost unlimited range of options that gives humans our tremendous range of behavioural and emotional reactions. This process too, is orchestrated by Dolichols in its preparation of the final protein structure.
The Dolichol-mediated process is also involved in neuropeptides formation; they are neuronal signalling molecules that influence the activity of the brain in specific ways and for cell communication, cell identification and immune functions.
This complex role is such that almost anything can be expected when Dolichols are deficient. Altered emotional and behavioural reactions are likely explained by altered neuropeptides formation.
SQUALENE: Is found throughout nature and is a major component of human skin surface lipids. Squalene accumulates at the greatest concentrations in the skin where it plays a vital role in quenching free radical oxygen, preventing oxidative damage from ultraviolet light. Squalene is also beneficial as an antioxidant, but its most unique feature is the presence of alkyglycerols - chemical compounds found in human bone marrow and breast milk, which help regenerate the immune system.
Regenerating the immune system is more than just stimulating it into action; the regenerative action means ongoing support to enhance the overall strength of the immune system long term.
We all appreciate the fact our immune system is our Natural Healer and we seek to boost it as often as possible, however being able to REGENERATE our immune system is even more desirable.
The activity of alkyglycerols in the body has been studied for decades, and their action is associated with increased production red and white blood cells; the white being the body’s main defence against disease and infection.>
The dual benefit of increasing blood cells and regenerating the immune system are perhaps the reasons that Squalene seems to be so useful for so many people around the world for maintaining all-over health and wellbeing.
And finally at the end of the Mevalonate pathway where approximately 10% of Squalene is converted into;
We trust you may now appreciate Cholesterols many healthy benefits!
As can be verified in any scientific text on steroidal hormones, Cholesterol precursors Pregnenolone which initiates the complex multi pathways of the Adrenal Cortex Steroids, commonly referred to as the gender or reproductive steroids – however their physiological role is far greater than just our reproductive functions with a broad spectrum of health benefits.
When we speak of ‘a feminine balance’, we are suggesting that even if your endocrine system is not entirely healthy, there is a reasonable possibility that Anna’s Wild Yam Cream may help you produce a healthy level of ALL your adrenal cortex steroids NATURALLY at the right time and in the right quantity for your healthy function. (See introduction to the feedback page, and About Anna page).
If you study the diagrammatic chart of the Steroids below, you will recognise the better known hormones, including Progesterone, Testosterone and the three components of Oestrogen, you may be surprised with the number of supporting elements that are necessary to achieve a natural healthy balanced steroid production.
When you view the chart it may be easier to understand if you can visualise your adrenal cortex, as your own highly complex onboard computerised production facility that produces the appropriate steroids on demand at anytime to meet your immediate emotional, physical and reproductive needs – a remarkable feat by any measure!
We cannot make any claims that you may or will enjoy some or all of the benefits of the compounds created by the mevalonate pathway, however we can find no other explanation for the wide range of benefits reported to us by women using our cream, as recorded on our web ‘Feedback’ page and on Facebook.
THE MANY KNOWN BENEFITS OF NATURALLY BALANCED ADRENAL CORTEX HORMONES
Helps use fat for energy. Eliminates cyclic migraine. Restores normal vascular Tone. Improves mental focus and concentration. Normalizes blood clotting. Restores proper cell oxygen levels. Normalizes thyroid function. Minimizes female hair loss. Normalises menstrual cycles. Eliminates painful menstrual cramps. Prevents hot flushes and night sweats. Restores libido. Eliminates mood swings and panic attacks. Natural anti-depressants. Improves quality and texture of skin. Stimulates osteoblast bone building activity. Protects against fibrocystic breasts. Nourishes connective tissue aiding mobility. Maintains the endometrium. Helps prevent breast, endometrial cancer. Resolves endometriosis. Restores fertility, and are necessary for the survival of The embryo.
Many of the above benefits are subtle, however when experienced in total they create a sense of wellbeing you may not have experienced in a long time.
We are confident that if you follow the appropriate protocols as outlined on our “USER GUIDE’ page you may also enjoy the many broad spectrum benefits of Anna's Wild Yam Cream.
WHAT ABOUT MEN?
Men have the same Adrenal Cortex steroid needs as women, only in differing levels, while it may be challenging for a mere male to accept that they too may experience a male version of menopause. There is a growing acceptance that men do and it’s known as ‘Andropause’, and that a balancing cream may help them – It is possible! It works for me!
STOP PRESS: We are in the early development stage of a Men’s Wild Yam Cream, and hope to launch it late 2014 – Will keep you posted here and on Facebook.
