Yucca supplements are prepared from the yucca plant, which grows in hot, dry environments and is related to the agave cactus.
Yucca's Health Benefits
Yucca is a traditional herbal remedy for joint pain and stiffness such as that which occurs in arthritis. Scientific research has yet to validate the effectiveness of yucca or identify its active constituents. Yucca supplements are well-tolerated by most people and effective for some people who either don't respond to or wish to avoid more familiar joint supplements such as glucosamine, chondroitin and SAMe.
Use yucca supplements as directed.
