Product Description

Yucca is a popular herb from a shrub which grows in the southwest U.S deserts. It has been used by Native Americans for hundreds of years. An extract of Yucca called schidigera is used to control ammonia in livestock. has unusually strong capacity to remove ammonia from animals, including livestock.*

Individuals within the autism spectrum tend to have higher than normal levels of ammonia brain, which can interfere with neurological development and contribute to brain fog. High animal protein diets can contribute to excessive levels of ammonia. Symptoms may include strong body odor.*

Pathogenic overgrowth of yeast and bacteria in the intestinal tract may produce ammonia as a byproduct which then leads to excessive levels of ammonia which can easily cross the blood-brain barrier.. A diet high in animal protein can also increase levels of ammonia in the body.*

Excessive ammonia and glutamates both switch on NMDA receptors in neurons in the brain. NMDA receptors mediate anxiety. Any foreign chemical substance that can stimulate the NMDA receptors will potentially generate a constant wired or high anxiety state, feeling tired but wired. When there is an infection in the brain NMDA receptors may also be overstimulated.*

Other agonists that prevent activation of the NMDA receptor include magnesium, zinc, and taurine.*
