Suma – Brasilian Ginseng
Due to its adaptogenic properties the suma root is also named "Brazilian ginseng", although it does not belong to the ginseng family, but to the amaranth family.
Suma is well known in Brazil as medicinal plant "para tudo" (for all things) and for centuries has been used as a cure-all remedy by the people of the Amazon region. In particular it was taken to strengthen the sexual energy, to raise the energy level of the body and to heal wounds.
By health practicioners worldwide, suma is considered an adaptogen, which is a plant, that improves the body's ability to resist physical, emotional and environmental threats. Adaptogens are believed to help the body to adapt to stressful situations and to have a positive effect on stress induced diseases by balancing the body's systems and spending energy.
Suma contains a number of important nutrients, including 19 amino acids, vitamin A, B1, B2, E, and K, pantothenic acid, iron, silicon, magnesium, zinc as well saponins, which are antioxidative substances. It has a relatively high content of germanium, which is a powerful antioxidant that works at the cellular level to increase the cell's resistance against free radicals and degenerative processes.
Suma is well know for its ability to help increase oxygenation and energy efficiency of the cells, promoting performance and endurance. Russian olympic athletes have taken suma to build muscle and increase endurance without the negative effects of steroids.
Mix suma powder to smoothies, juices or milk beverages. Add to cereals, home made chocolate and other dishes. There is no generally recommended daily dose, one could start with half a teaspoon, one teaspoon per day should be sufficient for most purposes.
Suma usually has a very individual and strongly balancing effect on the body and the effect can be different depending on the indivdual. Depending on what is lacking, some people say that Suma gives them a lot of energy, others feel really relaxed. Due to these strong adaptogenic properties, it is advisable not to take suma over a longer period of time, but rather limit the intake for times in need.
