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.
