Sarsaparilla is a shrub found in Mediterranean forests whose properties have made it used for medicinal purposes for hundreds of years. Mainly, this plant stands out for its powerful diuretic effects and its digestive and purifying properties. Sarsaparilla contains a wealth of plant chemicals thought to have a beneficial effect on the human body. Chemicals known as saponins might help reduce joint pain and skin itching and also kill bacteria. Other chemicals may be helpful in reducing inflammation and protecting the liver from damage.




For centuries, indigenous people around the world used the root of the sarsaparilla plant for treating joint problems like arthritis, and for healing skin problems like psoriasis, eczema, and dermatitis. The root was also thought to cure Hansen’s disease (leprosy) due to its “blood-purifying” properties.

It is important to note that human studies for these claims are either very old or lacking. The studies referenced below used the individual active components in this plant, individual cell studies, or mice studies. While the results are very intriguing, human studies are needed to support the claims.

Benefits of Zarsaparilla

Sarsaparilla root, also called Moorish bramble, is increasingly consumed due to its diuretic and purifying properties of the body. You can buy it at herbalists or health food stores, commonly in powder form, although it can also be found in the form of a fluid extract.

Detoxifying Properties

The main action of sarsaparilla is diuretics and detoxifying. Its high content of minerals, calcium, potassium, and magnesium helps eliminate toxins and excess accumulated liquid and promotes sweating and urination. In addition, it has been considered that it also has laxative and expectorant properties, which is why it was used in the past for liver and kidney diseases.

For the Skin

Its main components serve as a tonic and help treat skin problems such as eczema, psoriasis, dermatitis, or itching. This is also due to its anti-inflammatory properties.

For Rheumatism

As we have said, this plant has anti-inflammatory properties, which also help treat problems such as rheumatism or arthritis. It improves the symptoms of these diseases by helping to eliminate serious accumulations in the joints. This means a decrease in pain in cases of arthritis, osteoarthritis, or gout.

Hormonal action

One of the perhaps lesser-known properties of sarsaparilla root extract is that it can stimulate the production of hormones in your body, increasing testosterone and progesterone levels. This can help in menopause, in the case of women, or stimulate sexual desire in men. The natives of Central and South America used this plant against sexual impotence in men and women.

To Kill Bacteria

In the past, sarsaparilla was used to eliminate bacteria from sexually transmitted diseases, such as syphilis and gonorrhea, although it can also be effective in urinary tract infections.
