Food & Drink Business editor Kim Berry talks to Arepa co-founders Angus Brown and Zachary Robinson about the potential of adaptogenic ingredients in our diet.

In this episode, Food & Drink Business editor Kim Berry is joined by the co-founders of functional beverage Ārepa, Angus Brown and Zachary Robinson, to talk about the science and steps needed to make a beverage truly beneficial.

We discuss the rapid growth of the market with a focus on nutritional drinks that aim to improve brain health, as well as boosts in energy and immunity. We get an insight into the development of Arepa, and the possible benefits it can provide to those with ADHD, dementia, and other neurological conditions, all whilst being natural and caffeine free.

We also explore how Ārepa delivers the therapeutic doses required, as well as the logistics associated with conducting clinical studies, securing supply chains, and ensuring that the product is accessible to consumers.
