Natural Anti-inflammatory. Yucca root, an herbaceous plant of the lily family, is one of nature's most effective anti-inflammatories. The steroidal saponins in yucca are a precursor of natural cortisone normally produced by the adrenal glands. This makes it a popular remedy for all kinds of inflammation, such as hip dysplasia, arthritis, bone & joint problems, stomach irritation, bowel & bladder problems & other inflammatory conditions. It rapidly promotes symptom relief similar to steroid medications, with none of the side-effects. During inflammation, tissues swell reducing the blood flow through injured areas, slowing recovery & building up toxins that irritate the liver & kidneys. Yucca cleanses these organs & promotes blood flow & tissue repair, while preventing further degeneration & tissue injury.
“Anti-Itch”. Yucca root reduces the "itch" of allergies, often eliminating the need for drug treatments. It helps soothe hot spots, skin disorders & itchy skin by detoxifying the body from within. Dandelion also helps strengthen kidney function during this cleansing ordeal & serves to help the body eliminate bacteria or toxins that may be contributing to itch & inflammation.
Joint Health. Taken orally, yucca root can help as a treatment for degenerative joint & bone diseases. It helps break up mineral deposits in the joints & promotes the formation of healthy cartilage. Yucca also works as cleansing substance which helps prevent absorption of harmful bacteria & protozoa from the bowel that cause the stiffness & inflammation in the joints. And the plant provides nutritional support to the structural system (bones, joints, muscles) & improves circulation.
Digestive Aid. Natural animal healers suggest adding yucca root to a dog's diet to reduce swelling, inflammation & pain of the dog's digestive tract. Yucca is high in vitamins A, B, & C, & contains potassium, calcium, phosphorus, iron, manganese & copper which make it very soothing to the intestines. In addition, it helps balance positive flora in the gastrointestinal tract. Juniper has properties that warm the digestive system & increase the production of stomach acids, stimulate the appetite, settle the stomach & relieve gas. Anise helps cleanse the kidneys & liver & peppermint helps to soothe stress & relax the stomach muscle tissues.
Reduces Odor. Yucca acts as a natural odor control, working to detoxify the body from the inside out. Dandelion leaf, rich in minerals & vitamins, provides the nutrients needed for joint repair & the diuretic activities needed to flush excess metabolic wastes from the body through the urinary tract, waste that may otherwise contribute to solid build-ups in the joints & odor.
How Much Should My Pet Get? Yucca is a type of plant that is added to the dog's diet. Introduce the yucca root powder gradually over a two week period to a concentrated dose of 1/4 teaspoon per 25 lbs. of body weight. Mix with food. This product should not be used for pets with kidney disease, or if pregnant or lactating. As with any herb or natural medicine, consult with a veterinarian before administering yucca root to your pet.
