Native to Central and South America, Suma is a large ground vine the natives have long used to promote robust health as well as a general tonic. They called the vine Para Toda, which means “for all things”. Even though Suma has an ancient reputation of wide use, there has been few scientific studies to test its effectiveness. What is known about Suma is that it has a substance called an adaptogen, which means it helps people to adapt to stress and fight infection.
