Herbalists use sarsaparilla to clean the blood and to treat skin conditions. Sarsaparilla is a vine-like woody plant, which is indigenous to Central and South America, and the Caribbean Islands. Sarsaparilla contains vitamins A, B-complex, C and D, also the minerals iron, manganese, sodium, silicon, sulfur, copper, Zinc, and iodine.

Detoxification | Anti-inflammatory

Sarsaparilla has detoxifying and anti-inflammatory properties, and contains saponins which act as a diuretic and it is used to promote healthy kidney functioning by stimulating detoxification through forced urination.

Sarsaparilla binds with toxins and is used to improve liver and blood functioning. Sarsaparilla is also used for its anti-inflammatory properties to treat conditions like arthritis, edema, hepatitis, jaundice, rheumatism, and other blood conditions, and is also known to increase the excretion of uric acid, which makes it an effective in the treatment of urinary tract infections.


Skin Health

Sarsaparilla is used as a detox herb to treat skin conditions such abscesses, acne, boils, psoriasis, and other skin conditions. Sarsaparilla is a diaphoretic and promotes sweating and is used to cleanse the skin since the components sarsaparilla bind with toxins in the skin which are then sweated out of the body.

I used sarsaparilla and burdock root as blood, kidney, liver cleansers. Herbalists often use sarsaparilla and burdock root together.

Sarsaparilla benefits helped strengthen my herbal cleanse and helped make my transition to a plant based diet highly successful. Sarsaparilla benefits helped rejuvenate my healthy living.
