Of the U. S. Ph., the root of Smilax officinalis, Smilax medica, and other undetermined species of Smilax. The Br. Ph. 1898 recognized the root (dried) of Smilax officinalis. It contains several saponins. It is much vaunted by nostrum makers, but probably has no therapeutic value. The syrup may be used to mask the taste of potassium iodid [U. S. Ph.].
