Even though the intake of sarsaparilla gives many benefits, excess intake may lead to side effects such as stomach issues and allergies:
- Stomach Ailments: Consuming high quantities of saponins, which are found in sarsaparilla, can cause stomach upset, diarrhea, and indigestion in some people.
- Allergic Reactions: The powdered form of the herb, or “sarsaparilla dust” can cause allergic reactions that may resemble symptoms of asthma in some patients.
Avoid intake during pregnancy and consult a medical professional before making any major changes to your herbal health habits.
