Overview

Agave (Agave americana) is a plant found in southwestern US and Central and South America. It has thick, rigid leaves that form the shape of a rosette.

Some chemicals in agave might reduce swelling and prevent the growth of some cancer cells. Some chemicals might also cause the uterus to contract.

People use agave for constipation, cancer, male-pattern baldness, diarrhea, and many other conditions, but there is no good scientific evidence to support these uses.

Agave contains trace amounts of vitamin C, which not only supports a strong immune system but also helps boost collagen production for healthier skin and joints.
