In one hilarious scene in the movie Sex and the City 2, actress Kim Cattrall’s character, Samantha Jones, overeats yam to try to simulate the menopause-countering effects of bioidentical estrogen. In the film, Samantha’s hormone pills were confiscated by conservative immigration officers as she entered an airport in a Middle Eastern country, causing her sexual drive to go off kilter for most of her sojourn.
But is this representation of yam accurate? Can food really influence hormonal balance in women? Some studies suggest that it could, but perhaps the greater benefit of eating the right type of food items is more likely its overall effect on perimenopausal women’s health and quality of life.
