Zarzaparrilla - Sarsaparrilla Root
While the root is sometimes used in tea blends, it is traditionally used to produce liquid extracts for use in flavoring beverages, baked goods and confections.
The root of the plant has a long history of use as a blood cleanser and tonic. In 16th century Europe, Mexican sarsaparilla root was considered a standard therapy for arthritis, psoriasis and other inflammatory disorders. It is interesting to note that numerous US Patents that describe the flavonoids in the herb as effective in countering autoimmune and inflammatory conditions have been awarded in recent years.
