yucca schidigera concentrated liquid extract
contains natural steroidal-like saponins that are effective
anti-inflammatories and anti-spasmodics which are
known to reduce pain associated with arthritis.
schidigera has been used for years by the Southwestern Indians
for pain and inflammation caused by arthritis and rheumatism. It is also
said to reduce joint inflammation and has been used with success for
allergies and to strengthen the immune system.
may tend to break down the high molecular fats in foods whose
absorption contributes to high blood pressure, hardening of the
arteries, hypertriglyceridemian, and hypercholesterolemia. One of
our most significant findings was that no patient taking saponin
extract for 6 months or more continued to show an abnormally high
blood pressure or excessive blood triglyceride and cholesterol
levels. In other words, there were permanent benefits. --- Dr.

How Yucca Saponins reduce cholesterol: Bile acids are made
from cholesterol in the liver and gall bladder and pass into the
small intestines mixing with water to aid in digestion. As this
mixture enters the colon, the water is reabsorbed back into the body
carrying with it the bile acids and cholesterol. Saponins cannot
penetrate the intestinal wall, but work within the small and large
intestine. Saponins bind with the bile acids making them unavailable
for reabsorption. They pass into the colon and are excreted. This
forces the liver to produce more bile. To produce more bile, the
liver must remove cholesterol from the blood, leaving less to build
up in the arteries.
Keith Johnson, MD, editor of Turn Back the Clock newsletter,
states, "Adding the yucca plant to your diet will act as a natural
cortisone, and will wash out the harmful poisons that cause
Robert Bingham, MD, director of the Desert Hot Springs Medical
Clinic in Palm Springs, CA, "We have known for several years
that a food supplement extracted from yucca acts like a natural form
of cortisone, to reduce and eliminate the pain, swelling and joint
stiffness suffered by arthritis victims. Toxic substances or harmful
bacteria, when absorbed into the system, create allergic responses -
anything from migraine to arthritis. Consequently, an anti-stress
agent such as yucca saponin might have the same beneficial effect on
wastes in the body and be effective in treating arthritis by
improving and protecting the intestinal flora, rather than any
direct action upon arthritis. Strong evidence supports the theory
that some forms of arthritis may be caused or worsened by toxic
substances occurring in the intestines and absorbed by the body.
Yucca seems to inhibit these harmful intestinal bacteria and at the
same time help the natural and normal forms of bacteria found in the
Dr. Bingham, in the Journal of Applied Nutrition
(Vol.27, No.2 and No.3), reported
that 60 percent of people who took the yucca supplements experienced
diminished pain, swelling, and stiffness. There were no
side-effects. Further, those who took the yucca extract supplement
had lower blood pressure and cholesterol levels, and relief from
In 1975, Dr. Robert Bingham, director of the National Arthritis
Medical Clinic, tested Yucca saponin extract on 149 patients at
the California center. Most of the patients later felt less pain,
stiffness, and swelling in their joints. Others also received
additional benefits, such as, migraine relief, lower blood pressure,
and cholesterol/triglyceride reduction. Dr. Bingham believes that
the saponins aid digestion and absorption of fats. They also work as
cleansing substances which help prevent absorption of harmful
bacteria and protozoa from the bowel that cause the stiffness and
inflammation in the joints, he says. These compounds also appear to
Mary Clarke, Ph.D., of Kansas State University reports that
saponins "serve as natural antibiotics for the plant." And now,
"scientists are looking at how they can help humans fight fungal
infections, combat microbes and viruses, boost the effectiveness of
certain vaccines, and knock out some kinds of tumor cells,
particularly lung and blood cancers. They can also lower blood
cholesterol thereby reducing heart disease.
