Sarsaparilla, Fluid Extract, 2 oz
About the Plant:
Sarsaparilla is native to Central and South America. It is a ground-trailing vine which climbs by means of tendrils. The woody stems have sharp prickles and the leaves are arrow-shaped. Small green-white flowers grow from the leaf axis. The woody roots have a spicy-sweet taste.
The Indians boiled the roots to make a tea which was used as a blood purifier. Some tribes used the beaten roots mixed with oil as a cough medicine. In the mid 1800's many proprietary medicines contained sarsaparilla and it became a popular ingredient for tonics. Sarsaparilla was widely used to treat syphilis until the beginning of the twentieth century. Today, herbalists use sarsaparilla as a blood purifying herb for the treatment of liver problems, rheumatism, and skin diseases such as psoriasis. It also finds use in balancing the glandular system and improving digestion.
