What Are the Effects of Body Out of
Because of stress, processed foods, and other problems unique to civilized cultures, many women don't get enough of the building blocks needed to create a hormonal balance. In most cases, progesterone, not estrogen, is deficient. The symptoms listed below are created by estrogen dominance. When balance is restored by increasing progesterone levels, these symptoms disappear. So, a woman who is estrogen dominant must increase her progesterone levels to create the balance necessary for good health and quality of life.

"I started this letter many times but never had the words to finish. After all, how do you say thank you for the most priceless and precious gift! A gift my husband and I thought we were never going to have, a child. We tried to have children for seven years during which time we endured infertility treatments, including surgery to remove endometrium growing on the outside of my ovaries and uterus. I also had large fibroids in the lining of my uterus, which made carrying a baby next to impossible. I lacked a menstrual cycle and didn't ovulate. After a few miscarriages and "chemical pregnancies" we regretfully accepted the idea that we were to be childless. Then, in May, 1996 my sister told me about RESOLVE. Before the first week ended I had a period which I had not had in eight months since I had discontinued using Provera. I faithfully used RESOLVE and my cycle became regular. In January of 1997 I became pregnant! Everything was going well until April when the baby dropped deep into the birth canal and I starting having contractions. Things didn't look promising. So, I increased the amount of cream and miraculously the baby moved up. Then on September 19, 1997 I gave birth to a healthy 6lb. 15oz. beautiful baby girl."
Balance (Syringa Stock #027) $26.95 (Click link to purchase)
Balance, which is twice as rich in wild yam extract, comes in a roll-on emollient. However, for
most women Resolve contains enough wild yam for proper hormonal balance. Syringa's Resolve
and Balance contain only pure, unaltered extract from the Mexican Wild Yam.
Resolve effectively treats
PMS, endometriosis and fibrocystic breasts.
Dioscorea (wild yam) has become widely used as a
natural hormonal supplement. Its value lies in the
close resemblance of the phyto- hormones to those in
human physiology, and with the ability of the human
body to synthesize its essential hormonal chemistry
from the building blocks provided by Dioscorea
supplements. In order to be maximally effective there
are a number of factors to consider.
Wild yam is a most common source for diosgenin and its related plant saponins. In order to make a product based on diosgenin, the phytohormonal chemistry must be extracted from the plant source. This process is crucial. There are several common processes used to produce the plant extract, most of which use too much heat or involve chemicals which reduce the active components of the plant sterols. The most common extraction processes are cold press, hot press, steam distillation, glycerin, and ethanol. Most of these are very rapid processes and the quality of the extract is often questionable. Because Diosgenin extract is not a pharmaceutical product, there are no guidelines nor standards upon which to base an objective analysis. A particular product may claim to have a 12% Diosgenin content, but in fact be totally devoid of the useful chemistry it is meant to provide.
It is important that diosgenin alone is not the only
component extracted from the plant source. The purpose
of Dioscorea supplementation is to provide the body
with the complex building blocks it requires to
manufacture its own hormonal chemistry. One should not
consider a wild yam cream as direct progesterone
supplementation. While such products exist, they are
much inferior. What the body needs is to regain
and maintain its correct hormonal balance. The
endocrine system is a marvelous and miraculously
complex system. It involves multiple sources of
stimulation and many levels of feedback. Many
different organs and tissues in the body make hormonal
requests, and all of these factors are integrated
together as the endocrine system produces just those
amounts of hormones necessary to maintain the delicate
balance of good health, and to preserve the
When properly functioning, the endocrine system utilizes a myriad of different protein complexes in the form of enzymes, co-factors, hormones, and hormonal building blocks. Each of these is essential in the steps producing the correct homeostatic balance. If any one factor is missing, the body may fail to incorporate a path of hormonal stimulation, feedback, and/or control. It is for these reasons that one should avoid using Dioscorea products which have been reduced to only Diosgenin. The other plant sterols, enzymes and protein factors may be just as critical, or even more so for a given individual.
The same is true for products based on USP
progesterone. USP, or 'natural', progesterone is
synthesized from diosgenin. This extra step produces a
product which has none of the other essential plant
sterols and sapogenins. To make matters worse, natural
progesterone products are actually a drug. Giving a
woman progesterone will in many cases relieve symptoms
associated with progesterone deficiencies, but at the
same time, available progesterone in the blood stream
signals the endocrine system to shut down its
production of the steroid hormones. This includes the
important precursor hormone pregnanolone, an essential
step in the production of DHEA, cortisol, aldosterone,
estrogen and progesterone. By supplementing a woman
directly with progesterone, or
The final factor relating to the effectiveness of a wild yam product is the method and implementation of the transport mechanism. In the simplest approach, one simply eats wild yam. The digestive system reduces this to basic components to be delivered through the blood stream. This is not effective unless one's entire diet is based on the wild yam. The problem with ingestion is that the digestive tract reduces much of the active components beyond what is usable by the body. Only a small fraction is absorbed into the blood stream and delivered to the cells in a form useful to the endocrine system. The only other common application is in the form of a skin cream. The transdermal transport mechanism is far superior because it does not chemically alter the Dioscorea components through the absorption process. Even with this, however, not all skin creams are as effective.
An effective skin cream is first, one into which the Dioscorea can be incorporated without undue processing and reduction of the active components. Secondly, it is essential that the skin cream be readily absorbed, and that it effectively carries the phytochemistry through the dermal layers and delivers it to the blood stream for transport to the target cells. A good cream will also provide its own mechanism for transportation across cell membranes, thus helping to place all of the phytochemistry into the active regions of the body.
With the foregoing as a basic understanding, we can now look specifically at our product, Resolve. Resolve is made from the highest quality extract available in the United States. The plant is grown in an organically certified herbal plantation. The extraction process takes 6 weeks and is done most carefully and under constant observation to insure that the integrity of the extract is preserved. For this process we pay a premium cost, but it is the only known extraction process which does not compromise to any degree the value of the wild yam extract.
Resolve is 7% wild yam extract by weight. Our initial product offering contained 6% wild yam extract. This was based on calculations of the amount of progesterone a healthy woman needs in her body. During the course of a normal menstrual cycle a woman's progesterone production level varies from 2 mg/day to 25 mg/day. Diosgenin is known as a phyto-progesterone, and we intended to provide a supplement for progesterone deficiencies. While we achieved excellent success with the 6% composition, we felt that adding the extra 1% would insure that enough of the critical phytochemistry was available to help a majority of women in need of our product. Indeed, we have maintained for several years an 85% success ratio for helping women regain their hormonal balance.
The skin cream base used for Resolve is marketed by Syringa as Lite Replenishing Cream. This skin cream was developed many years ago by Syringa co-founder Homer Wolfe. The late Mr. Wolfe was a pharmacist and biochemist. He developed our replenishing cream with the encouragement and help of the local dermatologists and cosmetic surgeons. They were in need of a good skin healing cream, which Homer was able to provide. This cream has been available commercially for 12 years, during which time it has achieved great success at reducing the healing time for skin. The cream was developed especially to promote rapid cell division. The cream is absorbed rapidly, providing cell hydration and carrying nutrients to, and transporting through, cellular membranes. This cream was a natural selection for the base of our wild yam product, and has been key to Resolve's success as the most effective wild yam cream available.
At the time Resolve was initially formulated, it was one of only three such products available in the U.S. It is in fact largely due to the success of Resolve that the current widespread interest and awareness of the benefits of the wild yam have sprung. Resolve remains by far the most successful product available, as evidenced by the extremely high success ratio of women using our product.
In the last couple of years there has literally been an explosion of interest in the health benefits of wild yam. This has of course been accompanied by an incredible proliferation of wild yam products. It is very difficult to make meaningful comparisons between products based on lists of ingredients and percentages of active elements. The quality of the wild yam extract is not disclosed for specific products, nor is it clear the quality of the skin cream base. It is possible to make a clear distinction and comparison with any product labeled as 'Natural' or 'USP' progesterone. These are products based on wild yam extract where the diosgenin of the wild yam has been synthetically altered into the identical progesterone molecule. By their very nature such products are inferior for the reasons described at the beginning of this section.
Aeron Lifecycles, an independent laboratory, has performed an assay on the progesterone content of wild yam products. The best products are not those that show the highest progesterone content. The opposite is true. The best products have little, if any, natural progesterone. Instead the best products provide all of the fundamental building blocks necessary for your own body to function naturally, producing the levels of hormonal activity you need. Why take a drug when a wholesome, natural and nutritional source is readily available and more effective?
The only significant measure of a wild yam cream's
efficacy is in how it affects the lives of the women
who use it. In this respect Resolve is clearly the
leader. We have the experience of many years working
with Resolve. We are constantly providing lectures to
women, educating them on how to properly use Resolve.
We continually receive unsolicited letters from women
whose entire lives have been changed by our product.
We firmly believe that our product is the most
carefully constructed, most efficacious and most
beneficial wild yam product available.
Prostate Cream for Men (Syringa Stock #025)
"I had all the symptoms of prostate enlargement. I had seen doctors and nothing helped. Surgery seemed my only remaining option. My wife bought me ajar of Pro-Gain and I found immediate relief. All of my symptoms have disappeared and I feel like a new man. I want to tell the world, 'Pro-Gain has changed my life!' Thank you Syringa." - B.H., Wilmington, S.C.Attention Men: $23.95 for 2 oz. jar
75% of men over the age of 50 have measurable enlargement of the prostate gland, called benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH). As the gland enlarges, it constricts the urethra, blocking the passage of urine from the bladder. Urination becomes painful, the stream is weak, and men often have to get up three to five times a night.
