LIGHT ROOT EXTRACT**
Stimulates the endocrine and lymphatic system to 
Cell-renewing, hormone balancing.
Supports the free flow of qi, the life energy,

In Traditional Chinese medicine, the Light Root, also called Light Yam, Chinese Yam, Dioscorea batatas, is highly regarded for it's immune-strengthening, anti-inflammatory, cell-renewing, bone-strengthening and hormone-balancing properties. It stimulates the endocrine system which regulates metabolism, growth and development, tissue function, sexual function, reproduction, sleep, and mood, and strengthens the lymphatic system, which manage the body's fluid levels and detox processes and immune responses. 

Apart from proteins, amino acids, vitamins and vital trace elements, Light root contains diosgenin, a plant hormone similar to the hormones involved in the female cycle, that positively influences menopause.

But the most special thing about the Light Yam is it's ability to store light ether, or light energy, in it's enormously long root. Light ether supports the free flow of qi, the life energy, increases awareness and elevates concentration. Light energy strengthens the sense of self and the 'uprightness', counters gravity and immobility, and inspires our creative forces so we may bridge the daily gap head and heart, and go about our chosen path with confidence, comfort and filled with joy.

The Light Root is believed to hold the highest amount of Light Ether of all plants. One of the four ethers that make up the formative forces (Earth, Water, Air, Fire), light works through the element of air, weaves into our etheric 'light' body', and subtly strengthens our perception and awareness of our inner light. Our Light root is grown Johanna's family friend's certified Demeter Biodynamic farm in the South of Germany.
