RelaxZen “Functional Relaxation Beverage” ~

I’m not usually into trying things NOT approved by the FDA or “healthy” products not recommended by my own trusted holistic health doctor who attends our church, but I read the ingredients list on the RelaxZen Night product and almost everything was a natural herb, vitamin, or amino acid:
camomile extract, L-theanine, L-threonine, valerian root, melatonin … though there are other ingredients like filtered water, citric acid, sucralose (you’d have to read the ingredient list to see them all). 

The night I was ready to try my RelaxZen Night “shot” was one where I knew I wasn’t going to sleep well.  I had drank too much diet Coke too late into the day (a recipe for disaster); I was feeling stress from knowing some things going on with my husband’s job that I could do NOTHING about but pray; and I just feeling uptight, ready for a night of INSOMNIA.  I drank the 2.5 oz beverage shot around 10:30 p.m.  It was pretty tasty; kind of kool-aid like but there are only 2.5 oz to get down, so no big deal.  By 11 p.m. I did feel sleepy.  The bottle claims RelaxZen Night will promote sleep* and balance mood*  (*statements NOT approved by the FDA). 

I wish I could say I slept through the night – but I ALWAYS wake up between 3-4 a.m. because that was about the time Miriam used to wake up (thankfully she is now MOSTLY sleeping through the night) – and our room was hot & dry from the electric space heater, and I was parched.  I did go right back to sleep after a drink of water.  Something else important to me is that I woke up refreshed – no fuzzy, sleepy feeling like I get when I occasionally use an OTC sleep medication (like Simple Sleep or Tylenol PM). 

I do think that this product is great for occasional use after a stressful day or before a big day when you NEED a good night’s sleep. 

I also got a sample of the RelaxZen Day – but it had the disclaimer that nursing women were advised to not use the product (and of course, if you are PREGNANT – DO NOT use any of these products!!).  So, I gave it to my husband.  He said he didn’t have a mid-day sleepy dip like he usually has – but he was also having a super crazy busy day.  RelaxZen Day is supposed to promote calm, increase focus, and reduce stress.  Again, I think for occasional use, it would be great! 

RelaxZen has a video on their website … they are also on twitter (relaxzen) and facebook (relaxzenlife and relaxzenshots).
