|YUCCA (Yucca ssp)||Yucca root is widely used in cat and dog food as well as in other animal foods. It is a herb that is highly nutritive as it is rich in vitamin C, beta-carotene, B vitamins, magnesium, iron, calcium, manganese, protein, niacin and phosphorus. Yucca contains two very beneficial compounds: sarsasapogenin and smilagenin. These two compounds work on the mucous membranes of the small intestine. These compounds help with the penetration and absorption of minerals and vitamins. Sarsasapogenin and Smilagenin are known as steroidal saponins (phytosterols) which act as precursors to corticosteroids produced naturally by the body. Steroidal saponins support the immune function of the body while stimulating and supporting the production of its own corticosteroids and corticosteroid–related hormones. Due to this action, studies conducted on Yucca have shown that it may be beneficial and effective for pain and inflammation in conditions such as arthritis. Yucca may also be supportive in stimulating the appetite and may also help reduce the production of urease, which contributes to the unpleasant odors of urine and feces in some pets.|

Started my senior cat (17yo) on Yucca for her joints and old age. It’s only been a month but results are promising.
