Suma increases energy, strengthens the immune system, fortifies hormones (especially estrogen), reduces tumors and cancers and regulates blood sugar. Suma is an adaptogenic herb, normalizing functions in the body to heal and prevent disease. It relieves stress and helps the body to adapt to many varied environmental and psychological stresses.

Suma is reputed to be valuable in treating diabetes, joint diseases, osteomyelitis, elevated blood sugar and various cancers.
