MACA ROOT

This root has been consumed in Peru for thousands of years and has been shown to be one of the best natural ways to regulate the endocrine system and metabolism, increase energy, endurance and stamina as well as facilitate a healthy libido in men and women and promote an overall sense of wellbeing!

It enhances fertility in people and animals, can assist in treatment of chronic fatigue, depression, anxiety and enhance memory, learning and mental clarity.

It has a beneficial action on the circulatory system, promotes healthy teeth and bones and gives the skin a more youthful appearance. 

Maca also acts as a fungistatic, bacteriostatic, anticarcinogen and antioxidant!

Dried maca powder contains more than 10% protein, nearly 20 amino acids and 7 essential amino acids.

As an adaptogen, maca nourishes and calms the nerves (calcium, phosphorus, vitamins B1, B12 and fatty acids), it aids in digestion (calcium, vitamins B1, B2, B12, and fatty acids) and phosphorus fuels the metabolism. At the same time it supports the adrenal glands and its alkaloids help the body assimiliate the nutrients where they are required.

 

SUMA



Suma is a large ground vine with a deep and extensive root system. It is indigenous to the Amazon rain forest of Central and South America. Brazilian Indian tribes and the Portuguese call it "para todo" which means it is a great tonic "for everything."

Suma has been used for more than 300 years in the Amazon for many different ailments. In herbal medicine throughout the world today, suma is considered a tonic and an adaptogen.

Suma is an energy tonic, powerful aphrodisiac, and wound healer. It is considered a tonic for the cardiovascular system, central nervous system, reproductive system and digestive system. It has also been used to treat a wide range of medical conditions such as diabetes, cancer and skin conditions.

Some use the herb to treat chronic fatigue syndrome, ulcers, anxiety, hormonal problems (including menstrual and menopausal), sexual dysfunction and sterility. It increases mental and physical energy and stamina.

Olympic athletes have used suma in conjunction with other adaptogens to enhance athletic performance. The herb is also used to restore nerve and glandular functions, balance the endocrine system, fight infection and strengthen the immune system.

Suma root contains 19 different amino acids, electrolytes and trace minerals including iron, magnesium, phosphorous, potassium, calcium, cobalt, manganese, silica, zinc, selenium and the vitamins A, B1, B2, E, K and pantothenic acid. The high content of germanium accounts for its properties as an oxygenator at the cellular level.

It also contains saponins - which have demonstrated the ability to inhibit cultured tumour cell melanomas and help regulate blood sugar levels.
