WTF is Sun Potion?

It’s all over the ‘Gram, influencers are swearing by the health benefits, but WTF is it? We are talking about Sun Potion.

What is it?

Sun Potion is actually a brand! They make a whole line of herbal supplements and adaptogen blends.

A-dapt-o-gen: (an herbal medicine) a natural substance considered to help the body adapt to stress and to exert a normalizing effect upon bodily processes. A well-known example is ginseng.

Sun Potion Transformational foods is a company that produces products that use medicinal plants, super foods, and tonic herbs to create healthy powders that can be added into almost anything (smoothies, coffee, oatmeal, energy balls, potions, tea, and toast!). Sun Potion isn’t the only brand that utilizes these medicinal plants but they are definitely the most well known and trusted. Many people confuse the name “Sun Potion” for an actual thing when in reality it is the name of the company that makes bangin’ herbal medicine.

HBFIT’s picks from Sun Potion:

Ashwagandha: A vital herb and antioxidant, that harmonizes the body + mind,  reduces stress, and strengthens the immune system.

Chaga: A mushroom powder, that has high levels of minerals, B-vitamins, and enzymes. It is known to promote overall well being, and increase energy. It is recommended that this is consumed via slow cooked tea.

Chlorella: An algae powder, that is made of chlorophyll, protein, amino acid chains, and essential fatty acids. It is thought to be one of the most nutritious foods in the world. This stuff is potent and GREEN.

A smoothie bowl made with Sun Potion’s Chlorella, is not just a healthy kick start to your day but it’s also an AMAZING color. That deep blue/green, yep.


He Shou Wu: Typically used for anti-aging, beauty, and blood building. It’s also great if you feel a cold coming on and enhances your immune system.

Cordyceps Mushroom Powder: This mushroom power is meant to enhance sexual energy, mental power, endurance, muscle tone, and the immune system. If you live an active life this would be a great option.

Anandamide (raw cacao + tonic herbs): The combination of the raw cacao and tonic herbs will aid stress induced anxiety, and promote clearer thoughts. This powder includes some of the tonics we discussed above, (ashwagandha + reishi) in addition to turmeric, todos, rose petals, and cardamom.
