Sarsaparilla (Smilax regelii), also known as Honduran Sarsaparilla or Jamaican Sarsaparilla, is a perennial, triling vine with prickly stems in the Greenbrier family (Smilacaceae), native to Central America.

Sarsaparilla grows about 4 - 5 (13-16ft) meters vertically. Its paper-like leaves are pinnate veined, leathery and alternatively arranged. The leathery, oblong nd heart-shasped leaves are about 10 - 30 cm (4-12in) long and the petioles' width is about 5 cm (2in). It is known for its small red berries with 2 or 3 seeds and small green flowers. The flowers are radially symmetrical and have umbel inflorescence of 12 flowers. The berries are produced in the late summer and stay intact through the winter for animals and birds to eat.

In clinical trials it was established that plants containing saponins such as Sarsaparilla have beneficial properties with psoriasis – especially if toxins are involved – and herpes (Sarsaparilla promotes scarring if the powder is dusted over the feveer blisters). External and internal application is recommended with psoriasis, also in combination with Tea Tree oil (Melalucea alternifilia) which is disinfecting, Fennel Flower oil (Nigella sativa) which is moisturizing, and Grapeseed extract (Vitis vinifera).

History: Sarsaparilla was considered by Native Americans to have medicinal properties, and was a popular European treatment for syphilis when it was introduced from the New World. From 1820 to 1910, it was registered in the U.S. Pharmacopoeia as a treatment for syphilis.


Take 2-6 capsules daily, with plenty of water
