Dioscoreae or Chinese Yam root is a versatile herb commonly used in tonifying combinations. It can tonify the Qi and at the same time moisten the Kidneys and Lungs. It is commonly used for uro-genital symptoms such as nocturnal emissions, frequent urination, and leucorrhea. It can also help weak digestion.  It is sweet and gentle, and enters the Lung, Spleen, and Kidney meridians.
