body beast supplements nutrition suma root
12/12/12 1:21 PM
I am about 10 weeks into Body Beast and feeling great and loving the results. I have been sticking to the nutrition plan (although finding it hard to cut back on calories and stay within the macronutrient ratios now that I am in the Beast phase - but not stressing about that because my goal is not really to lose fat anyway).

I have not tried the Suma Root supplement and have some questions about it:

1. Do people really see results from it?
2. When is the best time to take it? Book of Beast does not say when during the day you should take Suma (i.e., before or after a workout?)
3. On Amazon, you can buy other brands of suma for much, much cheaper. For example, Nature's Way Suma Root is available on Amazon for 100 capsules of 500 mg each for $7, compared to $36 for the Beachbody version which only has a 30-day supply. Is there a difference between the Beachbody version and other brands? Any reason why it may be worth the extra money to buy the Beachbody brand?

Thanks!

I use suma root for a few weeks now and i would say it might do a little difference, it is pretty hard to tell.

About time to take it, i don't know if it could have any effect depending on what time you take it. Personnaly i take them in the morning with my breakfast.

Your other question, i am pretty sure other brand are the same thing, just check the concentration to make sure you have the same or higher. IMO the beachbody Suma seems to be a little overprice for what you get.

I like to take the Suma Root (how ever you get it) one hour before workout. I used to take it at night post workout, but kept waking up with problems. Hint, it rhymes with "morning hood".
