The yucca plant grows primarily in the southwestern deserts of the United States, and has a long history of medicinal and practical use among Native Americans. 

Although there are several species of this plant, it is easily identified by its long, spiky leaves, which resemble those of the aloe plant. It has been used to treat a wide variety of conditions that cause pain and inflammation, including premenstrual syndrome, arthritis, and chronic headache. 

It has also traditionally been used to treat skin conditions, such as skin cancer, and to promote the healing of wounds.

There are many different species of the plant, and not all of them have been the subjects of clinical testing. However, researchers have isolated and studied its saponins, the active phytochemical. 

In one study this extract helped relieve joint pain and stiffness for about half of the participants, all of which suffered from arthritis. Other studies indicate that certain species of yucca may help reduce headache pain and promote cardiovascular health by improving circulation and lowering blood pressure, cholesterol, and triglyceride levels.

It is also used to treat gout, and is thought to promote normal digestion and liver function. It is important to watch your dosage, as too much may cause diarrhea.

It is available in standardized capsules. You can make your own extract from the dried root. People suffering from arthritis may benefit from topical application as well; simply rub the extract directly on to the affected areas.
