The root has been used in traditional Amazonian herbalism for its adaptogenic and wellness-supporting qualities. Suma root also has a history of use as a food source and it can be added to herbal formulations for its vanilla-like flavor. Typical preparations of suma root include decoctions and maceration as a liquid extract.
