Yucca root is a therapeutic anti-inflammatory phytosterol with the ability to break up inorganic mineral obstructions and deposits. It is used to relieve pain and inflammation, help with arthritis, reduce cholesterol and improve gallbladder functions Yucca (besides being a very effective soap) contains saponins which provide a healthy alkalinity to the body that improves digestion and lessens the tendency to create accumulated undigested toxic waste which would otherwise decompose in the colon producing foul-smelling gases.
This reduces cholesterol and helps to detoxify the body, relieving the kidneys, liver, lymph and blood from having to purge so many toxins from the body. It is an excellent blood purifier which also helps with arthritis, bursitis, gout and rheumatism. It has also been used to establish flora in the GI tract and for asthmatic relief. Yucca root may have a laxative effect and also aids the gallbladder.
