Suma Is a plant that is sometimes called Brazilian ginseng, although it is not related to ginseng. The root is used to make medicine. It's used as an “adaptogen” to help the body adapt to stress by improving the immune system.
Nutritional value of Suma
9 different amino acids and minerals
Electrolyte minerals iron, magnesium, phosporous, potassium, calcium, cobalt, manganese, silica, zinc, selenium, germanium
A, B1, B2, E, K, and panthothenic acid.
Constituents of Suma
pfaffic acid, phytosterols (mainly beta-ecdysone), and pfaffosides (saponins), beta-ecdysterone, phytosteroid biosynthesis, beta-ecdysterone, germanium, allantoin.
Suma refers to eleven different varieties of a short, slow-growing plant with fleshy roots. It is believed to restore and enhance well-being. The most impressive health benefits of suma include its ability to prevent aging, help with weight loss, stimulate the mind, digestive system, immune system, boost energy, ease menstrual discomfort, boost hair health, protect the skin, protects vital organs, increases hormone synthesisr.
Prevents Premature Aging
All over the world, suma is valued for its ability to reduce the signs of aging. Primarily, it is used as an antioxidant, which can prevent the negative effects of free radicals throughout the body, which are the dangerous by-products of cellular metabolism that can damage healthy cells. Antioxidants like those found within can prevent chronic diseases, like heart disease. It has been linked to preventing the formation of maltol, another dangerous substance produced by the body that can exacerbate medical conditions.
In addition to providing energy by stimulating metabolism, Suma exhibits different properties that can aid in weight loss, including the suppression of appetite. When dried or powdered suma is consumed, it can quickly suppress the “hunger hormones” from triggering any cravings, thereby helping people in their weight loss efforts from cheating or snacking in between meals, while delivering a range of other health benefits at the same time.
Suma helps boost physical energy levels, especially for athletes involved in high-intensity exercise regimens. It contains many different electrolytes, essential amino acids, and minerals. Vitamin B in suma plays a vital role in many of the energy-producing metabolic pathways in the body and is involved in cellular growth and regeneration.
Improves Cognitive Ability
Consuming it does not only stimulate your cognitive abilities of focus and concentration but can also stimulate neural activity that can be difficult to achieve in one’s older ages. The activity of antioxidants to stimulate these pathways to prevent the accumulation of plaque and free radicals in the brain, effectively preventing the onset of dementia, and other cognitive disorders.
Suma contains pfaffic acids, which reduce elevated blood glucose levels. Ecdysteroids also reduce glucose production, thereby preventing blood sugar levels from reaching elevated levels in the first place. Ecdysteroids increase the rate at which the liver consumes blood glucose by 44-77%.
Interestingly, ecdysteroids reduce blood glucose levels independently of insulin levels, where decreased insulin sensitivity makes the body less able to regulate its own glucose levels.
Suma Is an Adaptogen
Suma is an adaptogen, which means that it improves the body’s ability to cope with stress and provides resistance against diseases and various other harmful biological and environmental factors. Suma has a restorative and balancing effect on many biological processes throughout the body and brain.
Protects Against Inflammation
Suma root is a powerful anti-inflammatory agent. The suma root extract reduced swelling (edema) for up to 6 hours post-injection. The extract also reduced histamine in human skin cells. It may treat conditions involving chronic inflammation, such as arthritis and inflammatory bowel disease(IBD).
Free radicals (oxidants) are one of the primary causes of long-term damage to the body. Suma root is rich in ecdysteroids, which remove free radicals throughout the body. Additionally, it was shown to increase superoxide dismutase in human skin cells, protecting them from damage. Given its antioxidant effects, suma may help fight the long-term cellular effects of aging, prevent disease, and may even prolong lifespan.
Protects Against Liver Damage
Ecdysteroids activate a variety of protective mechanisms in the liver and may help protect the long-term health of the liver when taken regularly. The ecdysteroids in suma root have a strong antioxidant effect, which is especially prominent in the blood and liver. Ecdysteroids also reduce cholesterol levels in the liver.
Finally, ecdysteroids also have a stimulating effect on protein and RNA synthesis for up to a day after ingestion, thereby boosting the natural function of the liver and enabling it to make more efficient use of dietary protein.
Boost the Immune System
Suma root contains high levels of germanium, which plays an important role in immune system health.
Suma root also increases macrophages, which play a critical role in the immune system.
Saponins in suma – sitosterol and stigmasterol – reduce high levels of cholesterol in the blood
ecdysterone reduced cholesterol by nearly 30% after only a few weeks. The cholesterol-reducing effects of ecdysteroids are particularly prominent in the liver, where they help transform cholesterol into bile acids.
