Yucca roots contain the compound saponin, which contains foaming
properties that are particularly beneficial on hair fiber. It is the saponin found
in the yucca plant that creates foamy suds when agitated in water. Saponins,
which help to bind toxins in the intestines and prevent their release, are also
produced naturally in the body by the adrenal glands. Saponin is a cleanser
- inside and out.
In a totally different application, yucca is widely used at sanitation plants. In
this situa-tion, the saponin accelerates the breakdown of organic waste. This
happens when saponin directly influences the development of microscopic
plants (bacteria) which are vital to the waste disposal process.
Because of the saponin’s ability to “clean” externally, and the fact that it can be con-sumed internally, people began to try yucca as an internal cleansing

I have started planting Yucca in my yard and am very excited to start using it as food, tea,shampoo and medicine!
