Suma (Pfaffia paniculata), also known as Brazilian ginseng, is native to the Brazilian rainforest. This wild perennial is an adaptogenic herb similar to Chinese ginseng. Three principal active ingredients have been identified in suma: pfaffic acid, phytosterols (mainly beta-ecdysone), and pfaffosides (saponins). Suma also contains germanium, allantoin, and several beneficial vitamins, minerals, and amino acids.

Suma has been used in Brazil for centuries as an aphrodisiac, as a tonic for diabetes, for ulcers, and for general wound healing. Suma is currently gaining popularity for use in strength-training and chronic fatigue syndrome.

Suma is also used as an adaptogen to help the body achieve balance for improved resistance to infections and to stress. Among the beneficial phytosterols also found in suma is ecdysterone; this plant hormone promotes protein synthesis, endurance, and improved metabolism. Suma also contains a broad spectrum of vitamins, nutrients, minerals, and amino acids essential for superior health.
