Saradomin brew is made by mixing clean toadflax and then a crushed bird's nest in a vial of water, giving 180 Herblore experience. It requires level 81 Herblore. It is slightly lighter in colour than a normal strength potion.
Saradomin brew raises your life points by 15% + 20 life points. It can go over your maximum LP by 15% + 20, however, this boost is temporary. It increases your Defence by 25% while temporarily draining your Strength, Attack, Magic and Ranged by 10%. The defence boost is better than a super defence potion if your Defence level is higher than 50, and this potion is one of very few ways to raise your Life points above the normal maximum. The boosting effect will NOT stack with Rocktail, but it will with the warmth of a bonfire.

- Table assumes healing rates at 99 Constitution
More healing can be done by boosting one's constitution level to 100 by operating the Constitution cape once per minute but under ordinary circumstances, the data is irrelevant.
It is universally advised to only use this potion in combination with restore, super restore, or overload potions in order to counteract the draining of the player's Attack, Strength, Magic and Range stats. Without using restore potions the Saradomin brew will reduce a player's levels to under level 10 within 5-8 doses, depending on the player's stats. As this effectively defeats the point of using it by quickly rendering players nearly incapable of doing damage, it is generally avoided.
The brew is widely known to be the item that heals the highest non-stackable life points per inventory spot. The only better methods are the Unicorn Stallion's healing aura scroll, titan's constitution scroll, and purple sweets which can be stacked for, at maximum, approximately 42 billion life points. (Players can hold roughly 2 billion of any stackable item, if they can obtain that many.) Brews are commonly used in places such as in the TzHaar Fight Cave while attempting to obtain a Fire cape, in high-levelled Player killing, during Barrows runs (to decrease the number of bank trips required), and are even used in Nomad's Requiem as a popular strategy to defeat Nomad.
Note: The Saradomin brew may not be consumed in Clan Wars or when duelling if food has been disabled.
This table is based on the Grand Exchange prices of a vial of water, the toadflax, and crushed nest. It is accurate assuming all three items are bought from the Grand Exchange and the Saradomin brew is sold afterwards.

Using a Scroll of cleansing may help a lot to reduce the costs of making this potion, because the second ingredient is relatively expensive.
