This species of sarsaparilla is native to India and Ceylon, where it is also known as Anantmula, Beer Root and Sarivadvaya. The plant is also referred to as False Sarsaparilla because its root serves as a substitute for the tropical species of sarsaparilla.

The powdered root is sometimes encapsulated, but is more commonly used to produce teas, tinctures and extracts.

sarsaparilla root

Indian sarsaparilla is a shrub-like plant that is native to India. The woody, aromatic rootstock is used as a flavoring agent and substitute for true sarsaparilla (Smilax sp.). Also known by the Sanskrit name of Sariva, the herb is considered a tonic and restorative in Ayurveda.

The primary constituents of Indian sarsaparilla root are phenolic coumarinolignoids, namely hemidesmine and hemidesmin. The root also contains beta-sitosterol, a plant sterol used in the food industry as a food additive.

Indian sarsaparilla root tastes a little like vanilla bean. It makes an excellent addition to tea blends and chai recipes.
