Taking herbal remedies in a Tincture or Fluid extract preparation is simple and easy. The tincture can be measured out into the small ml measuring cup that comes with each bottle. (A medicine cup or spoon could also be used) and the tincture can be taken directly.
However some people do find the bitter tincture taste to be too strong, so it may be a good idea to dilute the drops in water or fruit juice. For children, the elderly, those with a sensitive constitution or those avoiding alcohol, the alcohol can be evaporated from the tincture. This can be done by putting the drops in boiling water and leaving for 10 minutes to evaporate. For full instructions go to our How to take Herbal Tincture page.

Indigo Herbs Wild Yam Powder comes from Mexico where it is cultivated for the specific purpose of being made into powder. Wild Yam from this producer is some of finest produced Dioscorea villosa on the market. The typical production method employed is to generate perfect root growth and only harvest when the plants are at peak maturity. The Wild Yam is then carefully dug up making sure all roots are intact. The main body of the plant is then cut away leaving the precious roots. After meticulous cleaning and screening, only the very best Wild Yam roots proceed to the process of cold percolation in order to extract the active constituents into tincture form. The cold percolation method employs a gradient circulation of the solution which keeps the plant ingredients in perpetual contact with the ethanol. This technique is faster and more efficient than maceration and ensures there is less waste of precious plant materials. This premium quality product is manufactured to GMP standards and Quality Assured by Indigo Herbs. It is 100% pure botanical ingredients, completely free of synthetic ingredients with absolutely nothing added.
If you have any of these conditions: Fibroids, breast cancer, ovarian cancer, or cancer of the uterus you should not take wild yam due to its possible estrogenic effects. Men with prostate cancer should also avoid taking wild yam.
Pregnant women should not take wild yam because it may stimulate the uterus to contract, possibly causing a miscarriage.
Because very little information is available on how wild yam might affect an infant or a small child, its use is not recommended while breast-feeding or during early childhood.
