What Sarsaparilla herb Is:

When the bowlegged cowpoke sauntered through the saloon's swinging doors, swaggered past his poker-playing pardners, bellied up to the bar, and ordered a "sasperilly," he may very well have wanted only to wet his whistle. More likely, though, he was seeking a cure for syphilis. Since European explorers arrived in America in the early sixteenth century, the root of this tropical vine, whose several thorny species belong to the lily family, was thought to be a cure for this sexually transmitted disease. In the mid-18oos, even the U.S. Pharmacopeia listed it as an official syphilis treatment, and sarsaparilla went on to be billed as a general blood-purifying, rejuvenative tonic for any number of complaints. One of the many species, S. officinalis, is still around in health food stores, promoted as a builder of muscle mass and reviver of the libido.
