Category - Pfaffia paniculata [Suma root, Brazilian Ginseng]

Pfaffia paniculata [also known as Suma root or Brazilian Ginseng] is categorized as adaptogen as it helps body adapt to stressful conditions. There is insufficient evidence for the use of Suma root for treatment for sexual problems or its use as testosterone enhancing supplement. It is probably added due to its beta-ecdysterone content, which has been hyped up and later proven that is has no ergogenic effect. Although sexually sluggish or impotent rats seem to benefit from Suma root ingestion, while having no effect on sexually potent rats.
