Using Herbal and Superfood powders on a daily basis is simple, easy and can be really delicious. The simplest way is to rehydrate the powder in a little filtered water to make a shot, this can easily be prepared once, twice or three times per day if you are taking the herbs therapeutically. However sometimes the herbs can be bitter so the botanical powders can be added to a superfood smoothie instead of just water. The smoothie can be made with a base of nut milk, seed milk or non-dairy milk such as rice milk. Alternatively the main body of the smoothie can be created with fruit or vegetable juices. 

Additional superfood and herb powders can be added to fortify the smoothie with extra beneficial properties. The powders are largely dissolvable and can be scooped in and then blended, shaken or stirred until fully mixed with the liquid. Any true Superfood smoothie disciple would advise that the list of possibilities is endless with the goal to feel great and potentially replace a meal with this glass of super goodness. For full instructions go to our How to take Herbal Powders page.

Another option is to use a Capsule Machine that can be bought from the Indigo Herbs website. Filling capsules with your favourite herb has never been easier when you buy a Capsule machine. You can then be sure that the capsules you are taking are 100% pure ingredients without fillers added by some companies.

Suma Root Powder can be re-hydrated in water or fruit juice, it can be encapsulated or added to a herbal powder blend/Smoothie. Please consult the Herbal Materia Medica or Medical Herbalist for this botanical ingredients uses.

Manufacture Process

Only the finest Suma Roots are used to make Indigo Herbs Suma Root Powder. After the Suma plant has reached full maturity, the extensive root system is dug from the ground. This process is painstaking since the roots are far travelling and sometimes entangle with other roots. The Suma roots are then cleaned and screened, chopped up and air dried out of the sun for a short time before being placed in a specially engineered dehydrator. After all the moisture has been evaporated the Suma root pieces are milled into a fine powder and is made ready for shipping. 

100% Pure Pfaffia paniculata root powder

Not suitable for people with oestrogen-positive cancers.

The product is not very finely milled and slightly fibrous. But it is a hard root that has been well prepared and can be added to water or juices and simply mixed in. It doesn't dissolve or swell up if soaked in liquid. Its great to be able to get this unusual adaptogen in the UK and from a reliable prompt supplier. At least I did not have to pay extortionate customs duties as with some suppliers who pretend to be UK-based and yet import from their USA base, even getting the postage costs wrong. Well done Indigo herbs APW

I bought suma root powder to make up a herbal formula found in Paul Pitchford's 'Healing with Wholefoods'. As it is only one part of a formula, I can't distinguish the effect of the suma element itself. But the mixture is working very noticeably well for me so the suma root powder must be playing its part. I find that I am less tired, I feel calmer and I am sleeping well, all of which effects are associated with suma root.
