Production: Suma root is a ground vine that grows in South America (mostly Peru, Venezuela, Brazil, and Ecuador) and has been used to promote health for centuries.
Qualities: In Portuguese, suma root is nicknamed “para tudo” which means “for everything”, and rightfully so, as it has a wide variety of uses and functions. Traditionally it has most often been used to regulate hormone and energy levels. It is commonly used by athletes for this reason because when hormone levels are balanced, the body is able to repair itself more quickly.
Common Use: Suma root powder has a mildly vanilla-like flavour and can be easily mixed into juices and smoothies, desserts, baked goods, dressings, etc.
Storage: Store in a cool, dark, dry place in an airtight container.
