Yucca Extract - Impressive Benefits & Uses

Abstract

Yucca: A flowering desert plant,  in the plant family Agavaceae.  Native to the southwest United States, Baja California, and Mexico.  Known as the ‘tree of life’ by Native Americans for its many uses including health promoting benefits.  Its extracts have been used for centuries in folk medicine to treat a wide variety of inflammatory disorders, including headaches, gonorrhea, arthritis, and rheumatism.

Yucca Plant Extract has many uses:  As a foaming agent in soft drinks, cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, and as an animal feed additive.  It is cited to hold positive effects for livestock growth, feed efficiency, and health.  And most importantly for gardeners, benefits for plant growth, and soil health.

                        

Yucca Extract Benefits for Plants

In addition to other beneficial compounds, Yucca contains what are known as steroidal saponins; natural foaming agents with dispersant and coating properties that have anti-microbial, anti-fungal, anti-oxidant, and anti-bacterial properties.

Saponins are a natural surfactant, or wetting agent.  This is what yucca extract does for plants; as surfactants break the surface tension of liquids; allowing them to be more easily distributed and absorbed.

Why isYucca Extract Important for Plants?

  • Increases plant cell wall permeability and dispersal of liquids.

  • Protects against plant pathogens.

  • Reduces plant stress from drought, heat, and salinity.

  • Increases soil infiltration and absorption of water and nutrients.

What is Yucca Extract Used for?

In alternative medicine, yucca is thought to stimulate circulation, improve digestion, reduce inflammation, and relieve pain. Herbalists contend that these properties can aid in the treatment of high blood pressure, high cholesterol, migraine, diabetes, eczema, arthritis, stomach problems, skin infections, and liver and gallbladder disorders.

The evidence supporting these claims is generally sparse. There are, however, a number of smaller studies that hint at some potential health benefits.

Arthritis

Yucca is rich in compounds called phenols which are known to exert an anti-inflammatory effect. Chief among them resveratrol and yuccaol which not only reduce inflammation but act as antioxidants, neutralizing free radicals that cause progressive harm to cells and tissues. These properties are believed to be beneficial to people with osteoarthritis ("wear-and-tear arthritis").
Reference: 2006 review of studies published in the Journal of Inflammation suggested that the phenols in yucca can reduce arthritis pain by suppressing nitric oxide, a gas molecule that helps trigger the inflammatory response.

High Cholesterol

Yucca also contains plant-based chemicals known as steroidal saponins. Saponins are natural detergents that create foam; they are used to make soap and detergents.
When consumed, saponin binds with cholesterol and prevents its absorption in the intestines. Although a number of studies have shown that this can reduce cholesterol levels in the blood, the results have been variable.
Reference: According to 2003 trial from Korea, the daily consumption of Yucca schidigera and the herbal extract Quillaja saponaria decrease the total cholesterol and "bad" LDL cholesterol levels in people with hyperlipidemia (abnormally high blood fats).
  

Heart Disease

In addition to lowering cholesterol, the regular consumption of yucca can help fight heart disease by reducing that oxidative stress (caused by the imbalance between free radicals and antioxidants) placed on the cardiovascular system. Free radicals often occur as a result of normal metabolic processes. They damage cell walls, lipids, proteins, and DNA.
cause harm by damaging cells at the genetic level, accelerating many of the diseases associated with aging, including cancer and heart disease.
Reference: According to a 2003 study published in Nutrition, phenolic compounds found in yucca bark helped reduce oxidative stress by slowing the production of free radicals in platelets (the blood cells responsible for clotting).
