What is Swanson Sarsaparilla Root?

Sarsaparilla is a plant native to the Caribbean, Central and South America and has grown there for centuries. It was introduced to Europe by the Americans around seven centuries ago.

There are many species of Sarsaparilla plants which are used for different purposes. Some large varieties are used in root beer which is a popular drink in America. In other cultures, especially in South America, Sarsaparilla is used for its medicinal properties which are said to be useful for both internal and external conditions.

As a soft drink it is sweet, and is classed as a tonic by devotees. The roots are naturally bitter so to make it more palatable other ingredients including ginger, liquorice and sugar are added.

Native Americans are known for their relationship with the earth and things around them and Sarsaparilla has been used by them for generations, to improve skin tone and settle the stomach.
