Sage Picks: Sun Potion's Ashwaganda

Sun Potion can be found in top tier beauty salons as well as hole-in-the-wall alternative medicine practices. And with the word "Potion" in its name, it certainly holds a magical promise to the consumer. Sun Potion Transformational Food offers medicinal plants, superfoods and healing tonics, all sourced organically and created to help "transform consciousness and health."

We tested one of Sun Potions' most beloved products: the adaptogen, Ashwagandha.

Who is this for?

Ashwagandha is for anyone looking for an extra immunity boost -- especially those who suffer from stress-related or adrenal fatigue. Sun Potion's specific formulation is great for anyone who really pays attention to where their supplements are sourced from.

What does it do?

A recent study done by the U.S. National Library of medicine claimed Ashwagandha could help with ailments including asthma, arthritis, chronic fatigue, anemia, infertility, depression and blood pressure.

Where can I use it?

The Sun Potion people recommend adding ½ teaspoon to warm water or tea. With warm water, we found it a little less than delicious, but with a Breakfast Tea it was not so noticeable and simply added an earthy flavoring.

When do I use it?

Anytime! Day or night!

Why would I want this?

Adaptogens, in general, are great in helping the body's natural ability to handle stress. Anecdotal research shows that consistent use of adaptogens like Ashwagandha promote overall emotional well being and neurological health.
