Suma (Pfaffia paniculata) is a lush green flowering vine with a deep and intricate root system. It has been known to the indigenous peoples of the Amazon for thousands of years, mainly in the Matto Grosso area of central Brazil. In South America its common name is ´para toda´ which translates as ´for all things´, and is also known as ´Brazilian ginseng´ for its similarity to Asiatic ginsengs (although it is not related).

Description

Suma (Pfaffia paniculata) is a lush green flowering vine with a deep and intricate root system. It has been known to the indigenous peoples of the Amazon for thousands of years, mainly in the Matto Grosso area of central Brazil. In South America its common name is ´para toda´ which translates as ´for all things´, and is also known as ´Brazilian ginseng´ for its similarity to Asiatic ginsengs (although it is not related).

Suma naturally contains a wide range of nutrients including essential vitamins, minerals, amino acids and trace elements. Researchers have identified over 150 chemical constituents in the root, including 19 amino acids, electrolytic and trace minerals such as iron, magnesium, cobalt, silica and zinc, as well as vitamins A, B-1, B-2, E, K and pantothenic acid. It also contains high levels of the trace element germanium, a powerful natural antioxidant, and plant saponins.

Regarded as a tonic herb, and adaptogen, it seems to be able to support the body through mental and physical stress by balancing multiple body systems. It is one of the richest sources of an anabolic-type phytochemical called beta-ecdysterone, and contains allantoin and the hormones sitosterol and stigmasterol.

The root is currently being investigated in clinics and laboratories across the world, notably Japan where research has been extensive.

Suggested Use:

  • 2 - 4 capsules per day before food or as directed by your health practitioner.

Ingredients:

  • Pure powdered Suma root (Pfaffia paniculata) 500mg. Capsule shell: vegetable cellulose.
