The root was also thought to cure Hansen’s disease (leprosy) due to its “blood-purifying” properties. Sarsaparilla contains a wealth of plant chemicals thought to have a beneficial effect on the human body.

Sarsaparilla is a tropical plant. The climbing, woody vine grows deep in the canopy of the rainforest. It’s native to South America, Jamaica, the Caribbean, Mexico, Honduras, and the West Indies. The root is used to make medicine and a flavoring agent in foods, beverages, and pharmaceuticals. It can be helpful for relieving fluid retention, puffiness, or swelling and stomach bloating. Traditionally, teas made from sarsaparilla root were also used to “clean the blood,” improve liver function and remove toxins from the body. Research shows that one way sarsaparilla might help improve detoxification. It is through binding to “endotoxins” within the GI tract, which are chemicals stored inside cells (especially bacterial cells) that are released into the bloodstream and contribute to problems like liver disease, psoriasis, fevers and inflammatory processes. Studies have found that sarsaparilla has hepatoprotective effects (fighting liver damage and liver disease) due to its antioxidants, acids and plant sterols.
