Suma, scientifically called Hebanthe eriantha, is a plant found all over in South America. Its benefits were first discovered by the indigenous tribes living in South and Central America. Suma’s roots have been traditionally used in medicine for centuries as it has various health benefits for different parts of the body, including the brain, the immune system, and the digestive system. It is also known to boost energy, protect vital organs, increase hormone synthesis. It is commonly called “Brazilian ginseng” for obvious reasons, even though the plant is not related to ginseng. It is said to be an adaptogen. An adaptogen is something that strengthens the body as well as mind against stress. The people native to South America would have Suma roots daily to boost their physical energy and stamina.

Suma roots are the most useful part of the plant. This is because Suma plants have considerably deep roots which withdraw nutrients from the soil and hence make the roots the richest source of its bioactive compounds. Suma has been put to a wide variety of uses such as:

  • Fatigue
  • Strengthening the immune system
  • Curing anxiety
  • Soothing out pain
  • Reducing digestive problems
  • Increasing physical energy
  • An aphrodisiac
  • Curing erectile dysfunction
  • Mending ulcers
  • Reducing stress

Suma Components

The electrolytes, vitamins A, B1, B2, E, K1, and K2, minerals (iron, magnesium, and zinc) and amino acids act as building blocks for the metabolism of the body.
