Suma Root Pfaffia paniculata
Suma is used as an “adaptogen” to help the body adapt to stress by improving the immune system. Suma is also used as a treatment for cancer and tumors, diabetes, and male sexual performance problems; as a tonic to restore body function; and as an aphrodisiac to heighten sexual arousal.
Often called the South American version of ginseng, it has become a popular tonic that is used to bolster the immune system and to fight temporary depression and fatigue. Try it for Epstein-Barr Syndrome and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome; it may make a difference and add zip and stamina to a tired body.
