Our Herbs

Adaptogens are an amazing class of superherbs that help your body defend against stress. Because your body is less taxed from fighting stress, adaptogens effectively give your own energy back to you.

Many adaptogens survive—and indeed thrive—in extreme climates and terrains. They have learned how to grow in stressful environments, and by consuming them on a daily basis, you are infusing yourself with some of their resilience.

Adaptogens work systemically in the body to help balance, restore, and protect. In order to qualify as an adaptogen, an herb must be:

• nontoxic;
• nonspecific (meaning it works holistically in the body);
• and have a normalizing effect on the body, helping it to maintain homeostasis.

The adaptogenic herbs in Rasa Koffee are an all-star cast from Ayurveda, Traditional Chinese Medicine, and Western Herbalism: three of the most well-developed systems of herbalism in the world, with wisdom that stretches back millennia.

These herbs were thoughtfully selected to create a flavorful herbal coffee that surpasses the effects of ordinary coffee, with the capacity to naturally boost energy, super-charge your immune system and enhance mental clarity.
