Suma is an indigenous plant to South America, most notably Brazil, Ecuador, Peru and Venezuela. Traditionally it can be been used as a food product for many forest foragers. Its other common name is "Brazilian Ginseng." while not a true Ginseng, it has displayed properties very similar to the Ginseng (Panax) family. Because of the vast array of constituents contained within Suma, this plant is being thoroughly explored, used, and studied. Because of its rather Vanilla like flavor this botanical can be easily consumed for those with palatable sensitivities.
Suma is believed to strengthen the immune system and endocrine (glandular) system, and assist the body in the management of glucose metabolism.
