Why use Alfalfa/Yucca Blend?
If you are using a Glucosamine supplement for your pet and not getting the results you desire, the Animals’ Apawthecary Alfalfa/Yucca Blend can be a great way to enhance the effectiveness of your joint supplement. The active ingredients include alfalfa, yucca, burdock, and licorice.
Alfalfa contains many nutrients, trace minerals, vitamins A, B, C, D, E, and K. Studies have shown that alfalfa has been helpful in providing arthritis relief. Chlorophyll is also a large component to alfalfa, which acts as an antioxidant.
Yucca has also been shown to bring safe and effective relief from pain and inflammation. Yucca aids the body in using its own pain relieving attributes. It also contains saponins, which act like a natural cleaner for the mucous membranes of the small intestine, enabling it to be more efficient at absorbing nutrients.
Burdock is a powerful liver tonic and is useful in treating arthritis, inflammatory kidney and bladder disease and other types of metabolic disorders that may be the result of poor waste elimination. Burdock helps to clean the body from the inside out.
Licorice is the last active ingredient in the Alfalfa/Yucca Blend. Many studies have been done on licorice to confirm its ability to act as an anti-inflammatory agent. Many herbalists consider licorice to be nature’s answer to hydrocortisone.
When should Alfalfa/Yucca be used?
Alfalfa/Yucca blend is often used in conjunction with a glucosamine supplement to help relieve joint pain and arthritis, and aid the body in glucosamine absorption. The biologically appropriate blend of herbs make this supplement safe to take daily as directed by the manufacturer. Depending on results, the blend may be able to be lowered after a couple of weeks.
