Fo-Ti is legendary for fighting conditions of premature aging and is popular among natural healers for treating insomnia.
Fo-Ti, officially listed in the Chinese Pharmacopoeia, is revered in Chinese Traditional Medicine. It has been used to treat a wide variety of conditions and shows promise as a kidney supporter, an anti-inflammatory, lipid reducer and sleep inducer. The Chinese have long considered Fo-Ti an anti-aging agent, motivating modern scientists to investigate its potential role in human longevity.

I m interested in anything similar stronger or has flavor
The mint chocolate chip is heavenly. So good. I was looking for a great gluten, dairy free protein for sweet tooth cravings. This hit the mark
I love the way this stuff tastes. I actually look forward to drinking it post workout. The chocolate is my favorite but the vanilla is also very good.
The foti powder with hot water and oat milk tastes amazing. I can easily see myself completely switching from coffee to foti. However, because I liked it so much I thought I should research the uses and potential effects of higher doses (in case I want to drink a lot of it !) Here is what I found. Some websites report liver damage as a side effect of foti. Reference: https://www.webmd.com/vitamins/ai/ingredientmono-768/fo-ti But it is not clear how much or under what conditions adverse effects would take place. This other article indicates over 4000 mg could have adverse effects. Reference: https://selfhacked.com/blog/fo-ti-polygonum-multiflorum-miracle-herb-death-trap/ The KOS serving size is listed as 4.5g = 4500 mg, which is larger than the amount found harmful in the previous link. However, the previous link also finds liver BENEFITS with dosage under 200 mg. If you are doing research on these products and are worried about potential side effects, perhaps stick to the lower amounts. A lot of traditional over the counter medicines also list liver damage as a side effect and then say on the package "Safe if taken as directed". It is unfortunate that it is so hard to find reliable information on these herbs. I try to steer clear of opinions that invoke passion without evidence -- either way. I hope this information is useful to other consumers.
I purchased the fo-ti and lion manes supplement together. In the morning I brew some hot water, add fresh honey my cup and a scoop of each for a wonderful wake me up with some amazing benefits.
