Yucca Schidigera Extract – Active components of yucca include steroidal saponins and polyphenolics such as resveratrol and yuccaols. Yucca phenolics also are antioxidants and free-radical scavengers, which may aid in suppressing reactive oxygen species that stimulate inflammatory responses. Antioxidants are believed to scavenge free radicals, which are thought to trigger tissue inflammation at the cellular level via oxidative reactions. Yucca has also been known for its ability to reduce ammonia (NH3) from animal waste. The Yucca Schidigera Extract used in dac® Herbal Respond is a high quality source provided by Alltech® branded De-Odorase®.
