What is Yucca?
Pronounced yuck-a, yucca (Yucca schidigera) is a flowering evergreen found thriving in the sunny rocky slopes and flats of the Mojave, Chihuahuan, and Sonoran Deserts in California, New Mexico, Nevada, and Arizona. It can reach a height of 16 feet, sporting a dense crown of bayonet-like leaves that grow from a trunk as well as distinct long, rigid blue-green leaves that shoot from the base. It boasts bell-shaped flowers that grow in clusters at the top of the plant, and its fruits are long berries.
Yucca has a rich history of use by Native Americans. Its fibers were once used to create rope, sandals, and cloth, while the roots (thanks to their saponins) were used to make soap. Its flowers and berries were eaten and flour was created from the black seeds. The Native Americans even used the plant to as a deodorant and to support joint comfort in their folk wellness practices.** Today, yucca is the state flower of New Mexico.
Yucca contains naturally-occurring saponins as well as antioxidant activity, helping to fight the cell-damaging effects of free radicals that can lead to premature signs of aging.** Today, yucca is still used for its traditional benefits stemming from Native American folk wellness.
Piping Rock’s Yucca Supplements contain the finest quality yucca root in easy-to-swallow capsules. Each serving delivers 1,000 mg of this wholesome root, helping to support overall wellness naturally at a fantastic value.**
