Owner and Founder Scott Linde developed the company through his own transformational experience with these foods. With a background in Rolfing (Structural Integration), he began to notice profound shifts in his own body and consciousness with the addition of tonic herbs and superfoods to his diet. These shifts transcended the optimum state of well-being he had already sustained in his field of work! The line evolved from Scott's personal motivation to source the highest quality tonic herbs, algae, greens, and mushrooms from around the globe: simply (and perhaps selfishly) because this was what he wanted to put in his body! With the natural tendency to share with others, Scott began to offer the foods to friends and clients, and the company formed in response to the positive shifts in the community's health and organically growing demand for these Transformational Foods.
Today, Sun Potion brings the highest quality tonic herbs, algae, greens, and mushrooms available to all in single-ingredient, pure powder, and whole food form. Our vision is to share these Transformational Foods and activate Radiant Health for our global community!
Ask and You Shall Receive..
What are adaptogens?
Adaptogens are naturally occurring substances that help the body in natural processes, including digestion and regulating stress levels. A well-known example of an adaptogen is ashwagandha.
Should I be consuming the herbs daily?
These herbs are powerful and should be consumed in small amounts over time. They can easily be incorporated into your routine and enjoyed throughout the week.
Would taking more than the recommended amount (¼-½ tsp.) be more effective?
No. Consuming more than ¼-½ tsp. of each herb does not make them more potent. The herbs work by adapting to your body and assisting with natural bodily processes over time.
I have a pre-existing condition. Can you tell me which herbs are best for me specifically?
Since we are not health care practitioners, we legally cannot provide any medical advice. We suggest contacting an herbalist or your individual health care practitioner if you are concerned about taking our products alongside other medications.
Are your products single-ingredient extracts?
All of our herbs are single-ingredient extracts, except for our blends, which include Anandamide and our Green Adaptogen.
Can all the herbs be taken in one tonic?
The herbs can be consumed in variation. You might wake up and have a tea with ashwagandha, pine pollen and mucuna pruriens; at night you might take just reishi and triphala. It depends on how you feel, so listen to your body and do what works best for you.
I am pregnant and/or breastfeeding. Can you tell me which herbs I can have?
Because we are not health care providers, we legally cannot give you any medical advice, but we can refer you to Minka Robinson, a family acupuncturist and herbal alchemist working in Santa Barbara, California, who works with us and focuses on fertility and pregnancy/breastfeeding questions. She can advise you on what herbs may be best during this time. We invite you to contact Minka and set up time to talk, either through her website, minkarobinson.com, or by calling her at 805-708-8779.
Where can I find valuable and easy-to-understand research on these herbs?
The National Institute of Health offers great new information about the herbs, alongside publications like Conscious Lifestyle Magazine and MindBodyGreen. On our own website, we offer links on each product page with studies about the herbs and further research.
We use cobalt blue glass jars because of their healing energetic signature and we invite you to REUSE these jars within your creative capacity and RECYCLE them thereafter.
