Contrary to common belief, the yucca is not a cactus but a member of the
lily family. There are about forty different species but on only five
have "nutritional value". The vital force (healing properties) lie in
substances known as saponin steroids. These natural steroids support and
enhance the intestinal enzyme system.
Today's refined foods move sluggishly through the intestines leaving a residue around the villi (small finger like projections lining the small intestine) which contribute to toxemia. Liquid yucca extract as a dietary supplement will do more that just speed up elimination.
