Sarsaparilla is a climbing plant native to Mexico, the Caribbean and Central and South America. The indigenous people of these areas used its root hundreds of years ago for medical and food purposes. Traditionally, sarsaparilla was treated for sexual coldness, rheumatism and skin diseases, and was also a means of strengthening and raising life energy. The inhabitants of Peru and Honduras used it for colds and joint pain, and Amazon shamans made mixtures to treat leprosy and other skin diseases. In the Middle Ages, sarsaparilla gained fame in Europe and then in the world as a medicine for syphilis and venereal diseases. In the nineteenth century, for almost a hundred years it was even registered as an official medicine for syphilis in the US, until 1910.
