Sarsaparilla is native to South America and the Caribbean where the Jamaican or Honduran and Mexican originate. It’s used as an anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and toxin binding properties, via urine, stool, and sweating, to purify the blood and treat skin conditions.
Sarsaparilla contains vitamins A, B-complex, C and D, and minerals iron, manganese, sodium, silicon, sulfur, copper, Zinc, and iodine. Btw, it has the highest content of iron in the world! I love pairing this herb with Burdock. I feel rejuvenated and cleansed every time.
In addition, sarsaparilla aids in:
- diuretic properties
- heals open wounds
- loss of sexual desire
Sarsaparilla has the highest iron content of all herbs providing our bodies, blood, and cells with the nutrients to thrive! Our blood craves plant-based iron! Iron is what our blood is made of and is an important nutrient for energy support, immune support, for growth and development. Your body uses iron to make hemoglobin, a protein in red blood cells that carries oxygen from the lungs to all parts of the body, and myoglobin, a protein that provides oxygen to muscles. Your body also needs iron to make some hormones.
