He Shou Wu is also known as Foti root, Fo-ti-teng, or Ho Shou Wu. He Shou Wu is an ancient Chinese herb, and like Reishi, is classed as a Superior Tonic Herb in China.
Mention of He Shou Wu can be found in the Chinese medical treatise dating to 713 AD, though it is not the earliest tonic herb listed in the Chinese herbal lore, its wide and prevalent use today has certainly made it one of the better known herbs.
Millions of men and women make use of He Shou Wu in the Far East.
The name of this herb literally means "Black-haired Mr. He," in reference to an ancient story of a Mr. He who restored his vitality, sexual potency, and youthful appearance by taking the herb now named after him. While we aren't sure if this is the same person, He Shouwu, a Chinese man, is reputed to have lived until the age of 132, and is the first consumer of this herb to be reported.
Note: he shou wu is heat treated in preparation, so it is not a raw ingredient.

Sun Potion Transformational Foods is dedicated to health, happiness and well-being. We work with suppliers who can meet our stringent quality standards and commitment to purity. We only source Organic and/or Wildcrafted products and we never use ingredients that have been chemically treated in any way. Sun Potion products are created and shared with integrity.
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 these herbs to his diet. These shifts transcended the 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 plants 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 organically growing demand for these Foods.
Today, Sun Potion brings the highest quality plant foods 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!
