Today we have Ben LeVine who is the co-founder and chief herbalist at Rasa which makes adaptogen-rich elixirs, powders, and drinks. We talk about the benefits of adaptogens, what are adaptogens and what are not, and using adaptogens as alternatives for coffee.
Rasa is here to transform the way we energize with delicious, adaptogen-packed herbal coffee alternatives.
