Yucca Powder for Horses
Yucca powder is made from the stalk and the root of the yucca plant. Yucca is a desert tree that primarily grows in the southwestern portion of the United States. It’s closely related to the Joshua tree, and they are very similar in size.
How Does Yucca Powder Work?
Yucca Powder works by helping support healthy joint function and may help discomfort associated with normal daily exercise and activity. Baths and poultices can also be made from the powder and directly applied to skin or around joints.
What Are the Active Ingredients That Make Yucca Work?
The active ingredients are the saponins, which serve as the primary medicinal agents in the plant. These are both water-soluble and fat-soluble saponins. They work within the horse’s body to help maintain a normal inflammatory response.
How Do You Feed Yucca Powder to A Horse?
Yucca powder is mixed with the horse’s feed at the ratio of one to two tablespoons of the yucca powder per horse per day. You can also use the supplement as a poultice by mixing it with sterile water to form a paste. The paste can then be applied to swollen joints or other tender areas on the horse’s body.
