Relax Zen Review (Who has time to relax?) & giveaway! ***CLOSED!!!***



***WINNER! AMBER****

RelaxZen is a innovative heath product whose company is located in New Jersey. They sent me some of their products to review! I wasn't paid to endorse them, and all opinions contained herein this post are 100% mine!

They sent me 6 day relax shots and 6 night relax shots.

I love little "drinks" that "do things" Ha! I'm not a thirsty person, so drinking a whole bottle of something just for the benefits is hard for me. I know I should consume more liquid, I just..... don't. So thats why I like the shots like this. It is not something I have to force myself to sip on all day. They shipped FAST! The little bottles are so cute, and a little bigger than what they look in pictures.



What I thought about them......
I much preferred the taste of the Night shot to the Day shot. But thats not to say the day shot tasted unpleasant. The ingredients in the Day and Night are all natural and vitamins, and some are actually very common herbs.

If anyone needs de-stressing its me! Having a husband in the military is quite challenging. Taking care of two kids when he's gone by myself is overwhelming even on the best days! Even when he's NOT out to sea, he works a LOT and I have my hands full. Having almost 5 years between the kids too can be hard. Giana is bouncing off the walls while I'm trying to keep her quiet because Devonny still sleeps all the time! So I'm welcome to whatever might be of any assistance. I don't have much time in my days to stop and relax, and even when I try sometimes it is impossible!

So I have to say that the day shot, I couldn't tell much of a difference. I did love that they are all natural. I seemed to be in a better mood. But there is ZERO calories and for someone like me who is watching their waistline. Thats awesome.
Heres a breakdown of the ingredients and nutrition info for the day shot:

Ingredients
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
L-Theanine
The prominent amino acid found in green tea leaves, L-Theanine directly stimulates the production of alpha brain waves which helps create a deep state of relaxation. L-Theanine has helps reduce mental and physical stress.
L-Threonine
An essential amino acid commonly used to relieve stress and anxiety. L-Threonine also boosts the immune system since it supports the production of antibodies.
Vitamin B12
A “super-nutrient”, Vitamin B12 helps support energy, emotional stability, and mental clarity. It has also been associated with lower homocysteine levels, which helps reduce the risk of heart attack.
Vitamin B6
Vitamin B6 is an anti-anxiety vitamin that supports the immune and nervous systems. It helps to fortify the body during extended periods of everyday stress, making B6 an excellent addition to a wellness plan.
GABA
Gama-amino butyric acid or GABA is one of the primary neurotransmitters of our central nervous system. GABA is essential for proper brain function and is naturally produced by the brain. GABA prevents flawed messaging from entering our brain, therefore, limits stress and anxiety while facilitating improved focus.
Passion Flower Extract
The passion flower has a calming effect but also acts as a muscle relaxant. Shortly after taking RelaxZen, you may notice a release of tension around your shoulders or lower back – this is the Passion Flower at work.
Acai Extract
Research shows that Acai works to reduce stress without drowsiness due to a high concentration of polyphenols and antioxidants.

On the other hand.. I was skeptical about the night shot. I'm an insomniac! Short of taking prescription medication.... Its hard for me to stop ny brain from running in circles at night. I can't relax to go to sleep! It takes me an hour (or two) after laying down before I nod off. It makes me so frustrated at Noah, because it seems like as SOON as his head touches the pillow- he's out! Not fair. And the snoring... ooo.. I wanna slap him with a pillow sometimes! Most of my girlfiends ay the EXACT same thing about their husbands. Statistically speaking women are the worriers, so it makes sense. But I'm rambling. I guess I'm so excited I actually found something that works. See, I usually cannot pass out before 1 am. I mean, check the time on these blog posts and you'll see I am a night owl! Its 11:40pm right now.

(Keep in mind I haven't taken one of the shots.. because if I had I would be yawning for sure!)

I first took the night shot at 9:40 pm and by 10 pm I could not stop yawning. That NEVER happens. I know I said it earlier but the night shot tasted SO good. I laid down and was asleep almost immediately. Slept all night AND woke up refreshed. I am very impressed with them.

Here is a breakdown of whats in the night shot:

Chamomile is known to relax smooth muscle tissue, and helps calm a nervous stomach. It has been used as a natural relaxation aid and sleep aid for centuries.
Pantothentic Acid
