Smilax ornata is a perennial trailing vine with prickly stems that is native to Mexico and Central America. Common names include sarsaparilla,Honduran sarsaparilla and Jamaican sarsaparilla. It is known in Spanish as sarsaparilla, which is derived from the words zarza meaning “bramble” (from Basque sartzia “bramble”), and parrilla, meaning “little grapevine”
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 leprosy due to its “blood-purifying” properties.
Sarsaparilla was later introduced into European medicine and eventually registered as an herb in the United States Pharmacopoeia to treat syphilis.
