The Brazilian Indians who first discovered the medicinal uses of Suma called it "para todo" which means "for all things". It was and is still a very popular tonic in South America, often described as comparable to ginseng. It contains up to eleven percent saponins. Derivations from saponins have been patented as antitumor compounds.

Suma is used by women to relieve the symptoms associated with menopause. It seems to balance female hormones. It is also used for impotency and frigidity. Due to its effectiveness, it will undoubtedly become a much more popular herb.

North American herbalists have used Suma to treat the exhaustion associated with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, the Epstein-Barr virus and mononucleosis. Suma has been used to help many chronic diseases including leukemia, arthritis, asthma, high blood pressure, candida, hypoglycemia, high cholesterol, and the early stages of cancer.

Use Suma daily to ease menopausal symptoms and to revitalize a system lacking energy and stamina.
