What is smilax? What is it used for?

Also known as the glabrous greenbrier, smilax is an aquatic plant that belongs to the lily family, with large, circular green leaves and a thin stem. In China, smilax grows predominantly in the Yangtse river valley and the country's southern provinces. The dried rhizome of the plant is used in herbal remedies.

According to the principles of traditional Chinese medicine, smilax has sweet and cool properties, and is associated with the Stomach and Kidney meridians. It is used to treat a variety of urinary conditions, especially urinary tract infections and cysts; animal studies have shown that smilax can fight cancers of the liver and urinary bladder. In addition, smilax is effective in relieving joint pain and rheumatoid arthritis. In women, it helps to relieve painful menstruation and irregular menstruation, and to treat fibroids and cysts that may develop in the ovaries.

In addition to internal uses, smilax may also be applied externally. It can treat conditions such as skin ulcers and psoriaris.

What can happen if I take too much smilax? Are there any interactions I should be aware of? What precautions should I take?

Smilax is considered safe; the American Herbal Products Association has given it a class 1 rating. However, smilax should be used with caution by patients who have been diagnosed with liver deficiency and/or kidney deficiency. In addition, some traditional texts have suggested that smilax not be consumed with tea, although the exact reason for this remains unclear.
