Yucca Schidigera originates from the lily family of plants and is native to the deserts of Southwestern United States and Northern Baja California, Mexico. Yucca schidigera has the highest saponin content of any of the Yucca species. The Yucca schidigera plant and its extracts have a long history of safe use as food material for both humans and livestock.
Yucca Schidigera was used extensively by the Indians. They dried the fleshy fruits and ate them during the winter and would also make a fermented drink from the fruits. Yucca is one of nature's best blood purifiers. It is loaded with Vitamin A, B2 and C and is especially beneficial for arthritis and rheumatism. It is also good for the treatment of migraine headaches and internal inflammation. Cholesterol is reduced and Addison's disease is retarded. The Arthritic Society has written numerous articles on the benefits of using
Yucca. Dr. Bingham, an Orthopedic Surgeon of Yorba Linda, California says " It isn't clear how the Yucca extract benefits the arthritis sufferer. Some patients reported they noticed diminution of swelling and stiffness in the joints and those patients suffering from gastrointestinal disturbances associated with arthritis stated Yucca was beneficial".
Dr. Bernard A. Bellows, M.D. said, "It is the opinion of the doctors who treated these patients with arthritis that the Yucca does reduce the production of inflammatory toxins in the human alimentary canal and that this relieves the resulting physical stress problems. It is an effective agent in aiding wasted breakdown in the body and thus relieving associated problems". He continues by saying the desert Yucca saponin has proving to be a safe and effective source extract in the overall management of the epidemic cases of arthritis. In the world of medicine progress it appears that this Indian healing agent, the desert Yucca saponin, may now have come of age.
