Product Description

Suma Root

In South America, Suma root is known as para toda, “for all things,” as well as Brazilian ginseng. Indigenous people in the Amazon region used it as a general tonic; rejuvenating, and sexual tonic, and as a general cure-all for many types of illnesses and ailments.

Suma has been used as an aphrodisiac, a calming agent, and to treat ulcers for at least 300 years. It is an essential herbal remedy in the folk medicine of several rainforest Indian tribes today.

In modern Brazilian herbal medicine practices, Suma root is employed as a cellular oxygenator and taken to stimulate appetite and circulation, increase estrogen production, balance blood sugar levels, strengthen the muscular system, enhance the immune system, and enhance memory.

In North America, herbal medicine (which is not widely used), Suma root is used as an adaptogenic and regenerative tonic. Regulating many systems of the body; as an immune-stimulant; to treat exhaustion and chronic fatigue (enhancing the adrenals), impotence, arthritis, anemia, diabetes, cancer, tumors, mononucleosis, PMS, menopause, and high blood pressure.

In Ecuador, Suma is considered a tonic and “normalizer” for the cardiovascular system, the central nervous system, the females reproductive system, and the digestive system; it is used to treat hormonal disorders, sexual dysfunction, and sterility, arteriosclerosis diabetes, circulatory and gastrointestinal disorders.

In Europe, Suma root is used to restore nerve and glandular functions, to balance the endocrine system, to strengthen the immune system, menopausal, infertility, menstrual symptoms, to minimize the side effects of birth control medications, to neutralize toxins, high cholesterol, and as a general, restorative tonic after an illness.

Root Chemicals

Suma root contains 19 plus different amino acids and plenty of trace minerals, electrolytes, and vitamins such as; vitamin A, vitamin K, B1, B2, and vitamin E and pantothenic acid (a vitamin of the B complex, found in rice bran) and many other foods. Suma is essential for the oxidation of fats and carbohydrates. Suma root has a high germanium content making it an oxygenator at the cellular level.

Suma has been called ‘the Russian secret,’ as Russian Olympic athletes have taken it for many years and have been reported to increase muscle-building and endurance without the side effects associated with steroids. This action is attributed to an anabolic-type phytochemical called beta-ecdysterone and three novel ecdysteroid glycosides that are found in high amounts in Suma root.
