Yucca contains saponins that support structural health and joint function.
It is most often included in formulas designed to "break up obstructions" which include the chronic degenerative diseases, arthritis and rheumatism.
- Supports the structural system.
How It Works:
Yucca grows abundantly in the southwestern U.S. and Mexico. The plant is also called soap root, with the reference to soap coming from a long historical use of the plant’s roots as a foaming cleanser. Yucca contains large amounts of steroidal saponins, which account for its lathering ability. Saponins also support structural health due to their influence on joint health and function.
Take 1 capsule with a meal twice daily.
"Gift from the desert" - to clean the body and reduce inflammation.
Yucca root contains a foaming, soapy sap.
It is most often included in formulas designed to "break up obstructions"
which include the chronic degenerative diseases, arthritis and rheumatism.
It contains saponins that are precursors of cortisone which is an anti-inflammatory
naturally produced by the adrenal glands. This may be another way that yucca
is helpful for arthritis.
Yucca's foaming agent is used in root beer and other foamy drinks. The root
can be used as laundry soap and a dandruff shampoo.
Yucca alkalizes the body as it cleans out waste acids. By cleaning the colon
and regulating colonic bacteria, yucca helps to reduce the burden on the
other eliminative systems of the body; kidneys, liver, lymph and blood.
If yucca causes intestinal cramping and harsh bowel evacuation, combine
with ginger and/or reduce amount.
