Rio Health Suma (Brazilian Ginseng)

Product Type: Nutritional Supplement
Adaptogen & tonic herb Used for hormone imbalance Reduces stress & fatigue Aids detoxification


Nutritional Supplement Features:

Suma is the common name of a large rainforest root also known as ‘Brazilian Ginseng.’

In Brazil it is also referred to as ‘Para toda’ – meaning ‘for everything.’

  • Adaptogen & tonic herb

  • Used for hormone imbalance

  • Reduces stress & fatigue

  • Aids detoxification

Like herbs such as Asian Ginseng and Rhodiola, Suma is classed as an ‘adaptogen’ by herbalists, meaning that it can exert a balancing effect on multiple body systems.


It is often used to aid detoxification and to treat stress, fatigue and hormone disorders.

Suma root is also highly nutritious - and contains 19 amino acids, plus high levels of vitamins and minerals. It also has a high content of germanium which is thought to account for its properties as an oxygenator at the cellular level (which can increase energy).

The root is also a source of many other actives, including three important plant sterols - beta-ecdysterone, beta-sitosterol and stigmasterol, which are thought to have oestrogen-like properties and must account for its benefit to those suffering from hormone imbalance.


Nutritional Supplement Recommended Dosage:

2 - 4 capsules of Suma per day before food or as directed by your health practitioner.


Contra indications

Suma may have oestrogen like effects. Do not use with oestrogen-positive cancers.
