Is Yucca Schidigera Good For Pet?

Yucca was purportedly used in Native American herbal medicine as a cure for dandruff, headaches and arthritis. It’s also been used for centuries as a deodorizer and to make soap. Studies show that adding Yucca Schidigera to animal feed (including your pet’s food) might help support joint health. Yucca has high numbers of saponins and polyphenolics which might help reduce joint inflammation. Bottom line? Yucca is an all-natural ingredient that offers anti-arthritic and anti-inflammatory properties.
