Yesterday Aug 18th, 2016 the health director of the famous Jamican Gold Medal track team at the Rio Olympics, Morrison, shared their secret nutritious meal for their athletes, they have their athletes eat Chinese Yam at least in 2 of their meals everyday.
According to Morrison, Chinese Yam contains an abudance amount of phytosterol (which encompasses plant stanols and sterols). With a small amount of intake each day can have the effect of lowering cholesterol in the body, preventing major heart diseases and other health functions.
On the side note, Diosgenin (extracted from Chinese Yam) is often promoted as a “natural alterative” to estrogen therapy, so you will see it used for estrogen replacement therapy, vaginal dryness in older women, PMS (premenstrual syndrome), menstrual cramps, weak bones (osteoporosis), increasing energy and sexual drive in men and women, and breast enlargement. Wild yam does seem to have some estrogen-like activity, but it is not actually converted into estrogen in the body. Another active ingredient also extracted from the Chinese Yam is the Protodioscin, its uses include its function as a natural testosterone booster and sexual booster.
