Cleansing herbs tend to be down-the-hatch kind of remedies, but Indian sarsaparilla is worth sipping slowly.
Long used to flavor beverages, such as root beer, this vanilla-flavored root helps treat conditions ranging from psoriasis to slow digestion. Incorporating sarsaparilla into your routine can also help strengthen your energy and immunity.
To make a tea, blend 1 teaspoon sarsaprilla with 1/2 teaspoon dandelion root, 1/2 teaspoon birch bark, and a little honey to taste. Simmer with 8 ounces of water for 20 minutes and strain.
