Sarsaparilla Root (Hemidesmus indicus, Smilax ornata)

Latin Name: Hemidesmus indicus, Smilax ornata
Common Names: Sarsaparilla Root

Sarsaparilla Root is commonly used as a flavoring for drinks, most notably root beer. However, this is the common name for a couple of different plants that are grown in different parts of the world. The Latin botanical name for this plant, when grown in India, is Hemidesmus indicus. When grown in Jamaica, Sarsaparilla Root goes by the Latin botanical name of Smilax ornata. No matter what name it goes by, it is a very useful dried herb.

Worth trying

I initially bought this powder to use as a tea, but found that it mostly sank to the bottom of my cup. Since then I've been adding it to the slightly thicker blender drinks with good results and the flavor is very mild so it could be feasibly added to many things. To soon to say if it's going to have any positive impact with the Lyme, but it was recommended to me as being beneficial.
The shipping was the fastest I've ever had and I would definitely purchase from this company again.

Very pleased

It was so hard to find Anantamula (indian sarsaparilla) in cut and sifted form and it was vital to what I want to make. I'm so pleased to have found this through Star West and the quality is wonderful!

Difficult to find

I am glad I found Sarsaparilla at Starwest because other herb suppliers do not offer it. The quality of the product is great. They ship products fast. Starwest customer service is also excellent. I had to contact them with a question about billing and they solved my problem in my favor in less than 24 hours. Thank you, Starwest!

Very Tasty

I bought this for tea. I'm happy with it. The favor is good, and tastes a tad like root beer. I bought it for detox and herx, for Lyme. I only add a 1/4 to a 1/2 of teaspoon to my other herbal tea and it's strong. It's preference though, because my husband can drink straight Sarsaparilla tea. The root pieces were a good size, not powder. I was happy to find organic here at Starwest. 1lb should last me a long time.
