Saradomin brew detail.png

A Saradomin brew is made by mixing toadflax and a crushed bird's nest in a vial of water, giving 180 Herblore experience. It requires level 81 Herblore.

A Saradomin brew temporarily raises Hitpoints by 15% + 2 and Defence by 20% + 2, both rounded down. It temporarily lowers Strength, Attack, Magic and Ranged by 10% + 2. It can heal above the player's maximum Hitpoints level.

They are primarily used for healing whilst using protection prayers and super restore potions — used carefully, they restore far more hitpoints per inventory slot than any other item other than purple sweets. Saradomin brews are often used when fighting bosses, player killing, and in minigames such as the TzHaar Fight Cave. Its ability to heal above the maximum Hitpoints (similarly to anglerfish) as well providing a slightly higher boost than a super defence potion also make it useful for tanking.

One dose of a super restore potion will restore the lowered stats for three doses of a Saradomin brew, or four if the stats were boosted beforehand (through a super combat potion, for example).

Mixing a Saradomin brew in the Falador east bank is needed to complete the Falador Elite Diary. Although expensive, making Saradomin brews is among the fastest ways to train Herblore.

Hitpoints per dose

One dose of a Saradomin brew heals and can boost Hitpoints beyond a player's current maximum. The amount of Hitpoints is based off a player's base Hitpoints level. The formula is floor(lvl * 15% + 2).

14-19 +4 47-53 +9 80-86 +14
