Product Description

Suma Root Powder (Wildharvest)


Also Known As – Pfaffia paniculata (Mart.) Kuntze

Origin - Brazil

Overview -  Suma is an indigenous plant to South America, most notably Brazil, Ecuador, Peru and Venezuela. Traditionally it has been used as a food product for many forest foragers and was occasionally administered for a variety of ailments, hence its nickname "para tudo," meaning "for all." Because of its rather Vanilla like flavor this botanical can be easily consumed for those with palatable sensitivities.

It is sometimes called Brazilian ginseng, although it is not related to ginseng.

Medicinal Uses - Suma is used as an “adaptogen” to help the body adapt to stress by improving the immune system. Suma is also used as a treatment for cancer and tumors, diabetes, and male sexual performance problems; as a tonic to restore body function; and as an aphrodisiac to heighten sexual arousal.

  • Improving the immune system.
  • Cancer and tumors.
  • Diabetes.

  • Sexual problems.

Some researchers think that the chemicals in suma may stop some cancers from developing, decrease swelling, and relieve pain.
