Yucca Powder & Yucca Extract Uses

Yucca root powder has a prominent place in Southwestern herbal medicine. Yucca (pronounced “yuh-ka”) grows abundantly in the American Southwest and has been used for centuries by the indigenous people for a variety of ailments.

To this day yucca powder and yucca extract are still popular holistic choices to relieve symptoms of arthritis in people and in animals, lower cholesterol, reduce inflammation of the skin or muscles, as a fiber supplement, and to lower high blood pressure.

 Many years ago the only way to achieve the benefits of yucca root powder was to masticate and grind up the yucca root yourself. Thankfully, today it takes nothing less than a trip to your local online retailer to buy pre-made supplements.

The quality of yucca power and yucca extract supplements varies, so it is wise to check the ingredients listing and read reviews. Organic on the label does not necessarily mean it was grown fully without pesticides and with organic fertilizer. If holistic health products are important to you, you probably already know this, but it’s worth repeating.

Yucca For Arthritis
Yucca root powder and yucca extract appear to have special benefits regarding inflammation in the body. Yucca root and yucca stalk contain steroidal saponins, which are plant-based steroids. These steroids are thought to reduce inflammation and relieve the pain and stiffness associated with arthritis. The exceptional benefit about yucca powder is it is safe for consumption by both humans and animals (although, check with your vet for your pet’s specific dosage).

Yucca For Blood Pressure
Blood pressure, quickly defined, is the amount of pressure your blood puts on your vein walls. If there is more water in your blood, the pressure will be higher. One way to potentially reduce water retention is by eating a high-fiber diet. In reality, who can truly eat enough fiber in order to reap all the benefits? Not too many people.

That’s where yucca root powder and yucca stem powder come to your benefit. Due to the high fiber content of the pills (note: extracts do not have this benefit), the fiber absorbs the water from your system and allows you to flush it out, thereby reducing your blood pressure.
