Hi linenup - that's throwing the kitchen sink at it! Well done - and interesting to see the results.
I'm pleased to say that I've had some interesting results with saponins from Yucca extract - it's not a magic bullet - at least not yet, but has provided the best results I've had for some time. I'm using the following:
1. Now brand - Yucca Root 2 caps 3tpd (Root extract)
2. Jarrow formulas - Yucca extract 1 cap 3tpd (Juice extract)
3. Azmira Holistic Animal Care - Yucca Intensive 2 caps 3tpd (liquid extract that I encapsulate). I figure, if it's good enough for pets, it's good enough for humans!
4. Now brand Quercitin 500mg - 2 caps 3tpd. (Exflux pump inhibitor to prevent the bug expelling Yucca)
I source all from www.iherb.com - apart from the animal product (widely available).
According to scientific reports "saponins have anti-protozoal activity by complexing with cholesterol in protozoal membranes, causing damage to the integrity of the membrane, and cell lysis".
The good news is - the Yucca hasn't caused any side effects, even in the high dosages that I'm taking - and I'm feeling better than ever.
I thank jyt for bringing this to my attention - and I urge other forum members to give this serious consideration.
