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.
