Sarsaparilla vs Chaney Root

This question pops up from time to time but most recently on my YouTube page.

What is the difference between Sarsaparilla Root and Chaney Root.  Quick answer is not much.  Both have very similar benefits, both are found mostly in hilly areas of middle of Jamaica, both are key ingredients in popular roots tonics in Jamaica.

We want to clearly state the benefits of the two, the very few differences and reasons you should always have a pack of both in your home.  


First lets start with our Jamaican Sarsaparilla Root, Smilax Reglii (Wildcrafted, Cut and Sifted) 

  • Energy and Vitality
  • Sexual Health, Stamina and Libido
  • Boost Iron in the body
  • Blood Cleanser
  • Liver Cleanser
  • Skin Tonic
  • Joint Health - Arthritis, Gout

As you see this is a brilliant natural solution to some critical ailments to the body.  A healthy blood stream is key to a healthy body. This Root is a gift to mankind. 

Next is our Jamaican Chaney Root Cocolmeca, Smilax Balbisiana

  • Men looking to boost their sex drive and stamina, libido.

Sarsaparilla has more diverse mineral content and very good at cleaning your blood.  Where as Chaney Root is more powerful for sexual health because of its higher iron content.
