  author={Ismail Kucukkurt and Y. Dundar},
Yucca schidigera (Ys), a worldwide known plant contains herbal chemicals such as steroidal saponins, phenolic substances, fiber, resveratrol and stilbenes. It is widely used in industry and animal breeding since it contains steroidal saponins [5, 19, 24, 30]. According to the studies, saponin rich plants have been proved to decrease the absorption of nutrients generally in the digestive tract and change the metabolism in this way [5, 19]. The Ys is a saponin rich plant and hypoglycaemic… Expand

Effect of probiotics and Yucca schidigera extract supplementation on broiler meat quality
The current study investigated the effect of dietary supplementation with probiotics and Yucca schidigera extract on physicochemical parameters, proximate composition, mineral content and fatty acidExpand
Dietary Yucca schidigera extract improved growth performance and liver antioxidative function in broilers
YSE promoted growth performance in broilers as well as exhibited liver antioxidative ability during finisher period, which showed that during grower period, there was no difference on growth performance, while CAT activity and its gene expression were increased at 200 mg/kg YSE level. Expand
Effects of dietary Soapwort Extract supplementation on laying performance, blood biochemical parameters, fatty acid profile of breast meat and antioxidative potential of liver and heart tissues in cold stressed laying Japanese quail.
It is displayed that SE supplementation to diets of laying quails exposed to cold stress can alleviate the detrimental effects of oxidative stress with no affecting on performance parameters. Expand
Saponins as adipokines modulator: A possible therapeutic intervention for type 2 diabetes
Evidence of the role of adipokines with focus on leptin, adiponectin, adipsin, visfatin and apelin in the pathogenesis of type 2 diabetes is summarized and the potential of saponins to modify the ill-regulated adipokine secretions is discussed, which could promote the use of this class of phytochemicals as potential antidiabetics agents.

As an herbaceous plant containing high levels of steroidal compounds in its branches and leaves, Yucca schidigera, in addition to being used as a food supplement, has shown promising activity in theExpand
The Role of the Thyroid Axis in Fish
The roles of the thyroid axis in fish and its contributions to growth and development, metamorphosis, reproduction, osmoregulation, as well as feeding and nutrient metabolism are discussed. Expand


The effects of dietary supplementation with Yucca schidigera extract or fractions thereof on nitrogen metabolism and gastrointestinal fermentation processes in the rat
Yucca schidigera is an unlikely explanation for most of its effects in vivo because these are caused by NBE and in vitro antimicrobial activity is exclusive to BE, and Sarsasapogenin and smilagenin were alsoexclusive to BE and cannot account for the effects of Y. schidingera on N metabolism. Expand
Effects of escin mixture from the seeds of Aesculus hippocastanum on obesity in mice fed a high fat diet
Results have shown that escins may have beneficial effects in the understanding of obesity and combined administration of a high-fat diet with escins decreased leptin, increased HDL-C concentration, while remained ineffective on LDL-C concentrations in mice. Expand
Effects of dietary supplementation with Yucca schidigera Roezl ex Ortgies and its saponin and non-saponin fractions on rat metabolism.
Both fractions displayed effects, indicating that the active constituents are present in both fractions, and the TOT and NBE fractions were found to significantly increase serum insulin levels (P < 0.01) in the absence of any fluctuations in serum glucose levels. Expand
Effect of Yucca schidigera extract on blood pressure, antioxidant activity and some blood parameters in the L-name-induced hypertensive rats
The present study was aimed at investigating the effects of dietary supplementation of Yucca schidigera extract (YSE) on blood pressure, antioxidant activity and some biochemical parameters in theExpand
Antihypercholesterolaemic and antioxidant activity assessment of some plants used as remedy in Turkish folk medicine.
The present study indicated that the ethanolic extracts of Agrostemma githago, Thymbra spicata and Viscum album showed potent hypocholesterolaemic activity in the mice fed with a diet containing high-cholesterol. Expand
Antiobese and hypolipidemic effects of platycodin saponins in diet-induced obese rats: evidences for lipase inhibition and calorie intake restriction
Results suggest that PS has a greater role in antiobesity, hypolipidemia, and liver protection than previously thought and could be a potential therapeutic alternative in the treatment of obesity and hyperlipidemia. Expand
Effects of dietary saponins on fecal bile acids and neutral sterols, and availability of vitamins A and E in the chick
Feeding a steroidal saponin (sarsaponin) had virtually no effect on any of the parameters measured, and both saponins appeared to interfere with the absorption of vitamin A and vitamin E. Expand
Effect of Yucca schidigera extract on lipid pe roxidation and antioxidant activity in rabbits ex posed to γ-radiation
