concentrates are also widely used in cosmetics and skin care creams,
shampoos and bath salt formulations. They are reported to provide
numerous skin soothing and healing benefits.
schidigera has been used for years by the Southwestern Indians
for pain and inflammation caused by arthritis and rheumatism. It is also
said to reduce joint inflammation and has been used with success for
allergies and to strengthen the immune system.
saponins may tend to break down the high molecular fats in foods
whose absorption contributes to high blood pressure, hardening of the
arteries, hypertriglyceridemian, and hypercholesterolemia. One of our
most significant findings was that no patient taking saponin extract for
6 months or more continued to show an abnormally high blood pressure or
excessive blood triglyceride and cholesterol levels. In other words,
there were permanent benefits. --- Dr. Robert Bingham, Arthritis News
Today, Vol 2, No 6
How Yucca Saponins reduce cholesterol: Bile acids are made from
cholesterol in the liver and gall bladder and pass into the small
intestines mixing with water to aid in digestion. As this mixture enters
the colon, the water is reabsorbed back into the body carrying with it
the bile acids and cholesterol. Saponins cannot penetrate the intestinal
wall, but work within the small and large intestine. Saponins bind with
the bile acids making them unavailable for reabsorption. They pass into
the colon and are excreted. This forces the liver to produce more bile.
To produce more bile, the liver must remove cholesterol from the blood,
leaving less to build up in the arteries.
Keith Johnson, MD, editor of Turn Back the Clock newsletter, states,
"Adding the yucca plant to your diet will act as a natural cortisone,
and will wash out the harmful poisons that cause arthritis."
Robert Bingham, MD, director of the Desert Hot Springs Medical
Clinic in Palm Springs, CA, "We have known for several years that a food
supplement extracted from yucca acts like a natural form of cortisone,
to reduce and eliminate the pain, swelling and joint stiffness suffered
by arthritis victims. Toxic substances or harmful bacteria, when
absorbed into the system, create allergic responses - anything from
migraine to arthritis. Consequently, an anti-stress agent such as yucca
saponin might have the same beneficial effect on wastes in the body and
be effective in treating arthritis by improving and protecting the
intestinal flora, rather than any direct action upon arthritis. Strong
evidence supports the theory that some forms of arthritis may be caused
or worsened by toxic substances occurring in the intestines and absorbed
by the body. Yucca seems to inhibit these harmful intestinal bacteria
and at the same time help the natural and normal forms of bacteria found
in the tract.
Dr. Bingham, in the Journal of Applied Nutrition
(Vol.27, No.2 and No.3), reported that
60 percent of people who took the yucca supplements experienced
diminished pain, swelling, and stiffness. There were no side-effects.
Further, those who took the yucca extract supplement had lower blood
pressure and cholesterol levels, and relief from intestinal toxicity.
In 1975, Dr. Robert Bingham, director of the National Arthritis
Medical Clinic, tested Yucca saponin extract on 149 patients at the
California center. Most of the patients later felt less pain, stiffness,
and swelling in their joints. Others also received additional benefits,
such as, migraine relief, lower blood pressure, and
cholesterol/triglyceride reduction. Dr. Bingham believes that the
saponins aid digestion and absorption of fats. They also work as
cleansing substances which help prevent absorption of harmful bacteria
and protozoa from the bowel that cause the stiffness and inflammation in
the joints, he says. These compounds also appear to improve circulation.
Mary Clarke, Ph.D., of Kansas State University reports that
saponins "serve as natural antibiotics for the plant." And now,
"scientists are looking at how they can help humans fight fungal
infections, combat microbes and viruses, boost the effectiveness of
certain vaccines, and knock out some kinds of tumor cells, particularly
lung and blood cancers. They can also lower blood cholesterol thereby
reducing heart disease.
