Wild Yam Complex is most commonly used for problems that arise during menopause. While this supplement works quite well, there could be other factors contributing to hot flashes, such as poor kidney function. When the kidneys aren’t working properly and your body is trying to get rid of excess fluid, you then start to excrete the fluid from your skin, which in turn causes hot flashes. Liver and adrenal dysfunction also contributes to hot flashes, as well as a high-carb and high-sugar diet. Wild Yam is a great solution to help relieve symptoms, however, finding the root cause is the true solution to an easy menopausal transition.
