What is Ayurveda?
Sun Potion is proud to offer a diverse range of adaptogenic powders and tinctures aimed to fuel your wellbeing through mind, body and spirit. Ayurvedic medicine is one of the world's oldest holistic healing systems developed in India. Ayurvedic herbs in our line of offerings include Ashwagandha, a staple in Ayurvedic medicine, Shatavari, Bacopa, Triphala and many more.
What is Tonic Herbalism?
Aside from our Ayurvedic herbs, we also have a range of tonic herbs based in the traditions of Eastern Medicine, an approach used to help restore, tone and invigorate the systems in our body to promote balance and a sense of overall well being. Derived from plants and mushrooms, tonic herbs are a great addition to our everyday routines.
Where are the ingredients for Sun Potion products sourced?
We have established connections with growers and producers all around the world to source our tonic herbs, adaptogens and superfoods. Many of our ingredients are grown in the U.S., but others have been sourced from their place of origin, such as India, Australia and specific regions in Asia. We invite you to visit our individual product pages to learn more about the source of each of our elixirs, powders and tonic herbs.
Are Sun Potion products vegan?
Many of our products are completely vegan and can be especially helpful for those who follow a vegan lifestyle. Our Ashitaba, known as a “vegan blood builder,” comes highly recommended for individuals who don’t consume animal products. Our Cordyceps Mushroom Powder is also a vegan product, which is uniquely due to how we produce our fungus. You’ll find that only a few of our products are not suitable for vegans; these include our Bio-Active Honey and Transcendent Elixirs (as these contain Bio-Active Honey), as well as our Prash and our Pearl Powder. Please feel free to consult with us directly if you’d like clarification about any one of our offerings.
Before consuming Sun Potion products, what health considerations should I keep in mind?
We are not healthcare professionals, which means that we cannot legally offer medical advice. All Sun Potion products should be kept out of the reach of children and pets. If you are pregnant, are nursing or have any existing medical conditions, you should consult with your healthcare practitioner before use. Your doctor will be in the best position to provide guidance relating to your specific concerns, so invite you to consult them before taking any nutritional or wellness supplements. While we’re confident that our products will improve the lives of our customers, we understand that each person may react to an ingredient differently. We encourage you to research our products, reach out for clarification and make a determination with your doctor to assess whether Sun Potion would be a welcome addition to your wellness routine.
What are adaptogens?
Adaptogens are natural plant materials that help the body in natural processes, including digestion and regulating stress levels. A well-known example of an adaptogen is ashwagandha.
What are tonic herbs?
Tonic herbs are extracted plant material that are used to restore the body, support the immune system and support overall well-being. Tonic herbs also may support strength, endurance, fertility, immune function, vitality, energy, and more!
What are Transcendent Elixirs?
Our newest line of Transcendent Elixirs are triple-extract, liquid, Vedic alchemical elixirs. They deliver powerful, balanced, and convenient support to your daily health. You can enjoy them under the tongue throughout the day or in sparkling water or a tonic if preferred.
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.
How long do they last and how should I store them at home?
Our products can all be stored in a cool, dry place. A pantry setting is perfect, although if you live in a very hot climate, you can keep them refrigerated. The products have a designated two-year shelf life but can often extend much past this date when stored properly.
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.
Where can I find recipes using the herbs?
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.

I am ordering from another country. Can you estimate shipping costs?
We cannot estimate shipping costs before checkout, but to place international orders, go here. In order to avoid customs charges, ordering from the above providers will be best.
Does Sun Potion offer samples?
We do not offer samples, because herbs work best when consumed in small amounts over time. We invite you to try a jar and see how it makes you feel, and if you don’t like it we’ll refund your purchase. If you are unsatisfied with the product you've purchased, you can email email@example.com.
What are the best products to start with?

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.
Where can I find valuable and easy-to-understand research on these herbs?
