Pure Pfaffia (Suma) Extract
Pure Pfaffia (Suma) Extract - Mood Enhancer: PFAFFIA (Suma) – the roots of suma have been indicated for the treatment of several diseases because of its adaptogenic qualities that serve to normalize and enhance body systems, increase resistance to stress and boost overall functioning. This regenerative tonic regulates many systems of the body: as an immunostimulant, to treat exhaustion, chronic fatigue, impotence, arthritis, anemia, diabetes, cancer, tumors, mononucleosis, high blood pressure, PMS, menopause and other hormonal disorders and types of stress.
Suma root has been used for generations as a general tonic; as an energy, rejuvenating, and sexual tonic; and as a general cure-all for many types of illnesses. Suma has been used as an aphrodisiac, a calming agent, and to treat ulcers for at least 300 years.
Suma root is employed as a cellular oxygenator and taken to stimulate appetite and circulation, increase estrogen production, balance blood sugar levels, enhance the immune system, strengthen the muscular system, and enhance memory.
In North American herbal medicine, suma root is used to treat exhaustion and chronic fatigue, impotence, arthritis, anemia, mononucleosis, high blood pressure, PMS, menopause, and hormonal disorders, and many types of stress. In herbal medicine in Ecuador today, suma is considered a tonic and "normalizer" for the cardiovascular system, the central nervous system, the reproductive system, and the digestive system; it is used to treat hormonal disorders, sexual dysfunction and sterility, arteriosclerosis, circulatory and digestive disorders, rheumatism, and bronchitis. Thomas Bartram, in his book Encyclopedia of Herbal Medicine, reports that suma is used in Europe to restore nerve and glandular functions, to balance the endocrine system, to strengthen the immune system, for infertility, menopausal, and menstrual symptoms, to minimize the side effects of birth control medications, for high cholesterol, to neutralize toxins, and as a general restorative tonic after illness.
