    Chinese yam (dioscorea opposita) is an ornamental vine that is native to Asia. It also grows in North America, but it is not related to the sweet potatoes called yams that are a popular food in North America.

    The roots of Chinese yam contain diosgenin. This chemical is used to produce steroids such as estrogen and progesterone in a laboratory. In its original form, Chinese yam does not contain hormones.

    Chinese yam is used in Chinese herbal medicine. It is traditionally used to treat disorders related to the stomach, spleen, lungs, and kidneys.
