127: Scott Linde on Sun Potion Transformational Foods and the Healing Power of Tonic Herbs and Adaptogens

September 16, 2018

This week I’m chatting with Scott Linde, founder of Sun Potion Transformational Foods. At a young age Scott became fascinated with plant medicines and experienced huge changes in his health after incorporating herbs and tonics into his life, so he decided to create Sun Potion to share them with the world. Sun Potion is a company dedicated to sharing the use of medicinal plants, superfoods, and tonic herbs with others, only sourcing organic and wildcrafted products that have never been chemically treated.

In this episode, Scott shares more about what led him to create Sun Potion and what it’s like running a business behind the scenes. He discusses the importance of feeling connected with nature throughout his life as well as the problems with modern culture that is disconnected from nature and filled with toxins. Scott shares the story of how he first got into tonic herbs and was on the search for the perfect mucuna puriens. He talks all about how to use different potions, herbs, and adaptogens, how often to take them, and the best ones to start with. Scott also gives tips for what to try if you’re getting off of coffee as well as the best herbs for hormones, energy, sleep, and other health concerns. We also discuss sourcing of ingredients, if “organic” really matters, how we feel about stevia, and much more!
