Used for its antibiotic and antiseptic qualities in cases of toxicity of the blood which result in skin problems, such as acne, ringworm, psoriasis, and even more serious systemic problems which erupt at the skin, such as herpes or syphilis. This is due to Sarsaparilla’s content of cortico-steroids and natural plant sulfur.
It is also very effective at removing heavy metals and nitrogen-based waste, such as uric acid, which can be factors in some arthritis.
Sarsaparilla has a balanced makeup of male, female, and neutral hormones, and is useful in gland-balancing formulas for either men or women.
Some research has indicated that Sarsaparilla’s beneficial effects collect in the nerve fibers and tissues, and so may be helpful in hardening of these tissues from Multiple Sclerosis.
