Anna's Wild Yam Cream ~ Is it right for you?

Anna's Wild Yam Cream may help you produce healthy levels of Lipoproteins.
Ref: Wild Yam and Lipoproteins - Life Science 1996; 11 : 147-57

Let's analyse this statement to see what it actually means for you.

The active ingredient of wild yam is a Phyto Steroid 'Diosgenin' which starts your steroid hormone chain by facilitating the production of healthy levels of lipoproteins.

Lipoproteins are the important key, as they are the precursor to ALL of your gender specific steroid hormones that are then produced in a chain or cascade, that is one hormone precursors the next through a multitude of complex pathways which are determined by the needs of your body at any given time.

When we speak of balanced hormones, we are suggesting that if your endocrine system is healthy, there is a reasonable possibility that Anna's Wild Yam Cream will help you to produce a healthy level of ALL your gender specific (sex) hormones NATURALLY, at the right time and in the right quantity, including;

• Pregnenolone
• Progesterone
• Oestrogens
• Testosterone
• etc.

Ref: Kaplan, N. M. The Adrenal Glands. In: Griffin, James E & Ojeda, Sergio O. Textbook of Endocrine Physiology (3rd Edition). Oxford University Press. New York, USA, 1996: 285-286. All Adrenal Steroids are derived from lipo protein by various enzymatically mediated modifications of its structure

Explanation: The enzyme Esterase catalyses the conversion of lipoproteins to the hormone Pregnenolone (the precursor to all the genders specific hormones) aided by the hormone Adrenocorticotropic (ACTH), which increases the activity of the enzyme Esterase.

There are even more advantages of Lipoproteins.

Lipoproteins are an essential element of every healthy cell membrane in our body as the membrane provides the water-proofing of the cell, with our body comprising 70%+ of liquids, you will realise just how important this function is.

If our cells were to become leaky from a deficiency of lipoproteins, our body interprets this as an emergency releasing a flood of corticoid hormones that work by sequestering lipoproteins from one part of the body and transporting it to areas where it is lacking.

Lipoproteins are the body's repair substance: it is quickly despatched to areas of inflammation. Scar tissue contains high levels of it.

Lipoproteins are the precursor to Vitamin D, necessary for the numerous biochemical processes including mineral metabolism important for bone density and an provides effective protection against cancer.
Ref: Researchers from the Moore's Cancer Centre at the University of California, San Diego (UCSD) estimated by increasing Vitamin D3 levels, 250,000 cases of Colorectal Cancer, and 350,000 cases of Breast Cancer could be prevented worldwide. Dr John Mercola's Special Sunlight Report Dec 2007.

Bile salts, required for the digestion of fat are made of lipoproteins - those who suffer from low lipo proteins have trouble digesting fats.

Lipoproteins also function as a powerful antioxidant, thus protecting us against cancer and ageing.

Lipoproteins are vital for proper neurological function. It plays a key role in the formation of memory and the uptake of hormones in the brain, including Serotonin.

Serotonin is the body's feel-good chemical. When lipoproteins drop too low, the serotonin receptors cannot work; that's how depression can indicate hormone deficiencies.

Lipoprotein is the main organic molecule in the brain, constituting over half the dry weight of the cerebral cortex.

Finally, Lipoproteins are the precursor to all of the hormones produced in the adrenal cortex including glucocorticoids, which regulate blood sugar levels, and mineralocorticoids, which regulate mineral balance.

Corticoids are the lipoprotein based adrenal hormones that the body uses in response to stress of various types; it promotes healing and balances the tendency to inflammation.

The adrenal cortex also produces sex hormones, including progesterone, oestrogen, and testosterone out of lipoproteins.

Thus, low lipoproteins, whether due to an innate error of metabolism or induced by lipo protein lowering diets or drugs, can be expected to disrupt the production of adrenal hormones and lead to blood sugar problems, oedema, mineral deficiencies, chronic inflammation, difficulty in healing, allergies, asthma, reduced libido, infertility and various reproductive problems.
