RelaxZen Review & Giveaway

Motherhood is stressful! Some days, you just want to scream as loudly as the toddler in her terrible twos, and some nights, your brain is whirling in a fury of to do lists -- that's how it is for me, at least!

I was given the opportunity to try RelaxZen, which offers two "shots" to help with stress. The RelaxZen Day is to reduce stress and fatigue without effecting productivity, and I did find this to be true. I took it right before the craziness of late afternoon and noticed that I was more calmly able to handle my toddler's fussiness as well as get dinner rolling. I wasn't too fond of the taste of "Mellow Berry" -- it was like sweetened, diluted cough syrup. I did like the taste of RelaxZen's Night "Mellow Berry;" -- it tasted like honey water. But it also lived up to the concept; I was tired and ready to sleep 15 minutes after drinking it!

Honestly, I'm not one for energy drinks or things of that nature, but a key concept of RelaxZen that piqued my interest was its ingredients. In RelaxZen Day, you'll find L-Theanine (which some thing reduces stress), L-Threonine (which also reduces stress and boots your immunity), Vitamin B12 (for energy), Vitamin B6 (helps to strengthen the body), GABA (Gama-amino butyric acid, for brain power and function), Passion Flower Extract (can act as a muscle relaxant, and Acai Extract (some call the wonder herb). With RelaxZen Night, you'll find L-Theanine, L-Threonine, Vitamin B12, Vitamin B6, GABA, as well as Chamomile Extract (for a calming effect), Pantothentic Acid (also known as Vitamin B5), and Melatonin. I wouldn't have a problem taking this longer term to deal with stress. Find out more about RelaxZen on their Facebook page.
