Yucca Schidigera has been used by the American Indians for thousands of years. Many therapeutic benefits have been reported and tested by medical research professionals in North America in recent years. The therapeutic benefits of Yucca Schidigera was further confirmed by a group of Chinese herbal experts during a three year testing on the YUCCALIVE® formula.
The powerful intestinal cleansing effect of the Yucca Schidigera can eliminate the toxins built up in our digestive tract. The cleansing effect in turn reduces the toxins that our body absorbs into our blood stream through our intestinal walls. The result is an effective detoxification which is the beginning of all healing processes.
The YUCCALIVE® formula contains Yucca Schidigera as the “Emperor” or “King” herb and is enhanced by several other supporting and complementary herbs. The result on our health is powerful. After three years’ tests and studies in China under strict supervision by the Ministry of Heath of China, a set of specifications was made to be followed for our production. This guarantees that the finished product will always meet the quality control requirement.
To enjoy better result, use together with CESSIAC®. All tests conducted in China made use of both herbal formulas. The herb ratios and the preparation method make a lot of difference to the end results.
It is not just the ingredients that count. The right herb ratio, the production procedures, and the quality control all contribute to the effectiveness of the product. See Clinical Studies for details.
YUCCA (Yucca schidigera)
Yucca 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, It is especially beneficial for arthritis and rheumatism. It is also good for migraine headaches, and inflammation (internal). It reduces cholesterol, and is good for Addison’s Disease. The Arthritic Society has written numerous articles ion the benefits of using Yucca. Dr. Bingham – Orthopedic surgeon of Yorba, California says – ” It isn’t clear how the Yucca extract benefits the arthritis sufferer. Some patients report they notice diminution of swelling and stiffness in the joints, those are patients that suffered from gastrointestinal disturbances associated with arthritis”. Dr. Berard A. Bellow, MD said – ” It is the opinion of the doctors who treated these patients with arthritis, that the yucca saponin 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 waste breakdown in the body and thus relieving associated problems”. He continues by saying, “The desert yucca saponin has proven to be a safe and effective food source extract in the overall management of the epidemic cases of arthritis.” In the world of medical progress it appears that this Indian healer, the desert yucca saponin, may now have come of age.
