Drinking for energy is slowly becoming passe with an influx of new drinks designed for relaxation!
These slo-mo drinks contain calming ingredients such as melatonin, a natural sleep aide. Other natural kickback ingredients include valerian root, rose hips, lemon balm, chamomile, kava-kava, GABA and passionflower.
It appears that this new chill out craze is slowly becoming a hit among the over-caffeinated, herbal-imbibing crowd–young and old. When it’s time for these hyped up, stressed out masses to unwind or go to sleep, the usual glass of wine, warm milk or chamomile tea will filled with one or more of these soothing sodas, and maybe a cookie.
Suffice to say that there’s no real evidence to back up any of the relaxing claims spouted by these zen-inducing drink makers, but the millions of thirsty guinea pigs are sure to guzzle gluttonously, leading to unexpected conclusions yet to be fathomed.
As for advice from the experts, well they tend to agree on the cool factor of these anti-relaxation drinks, all while noting that health stems from good nutrition, exercise, good sleep habits and stress management techniques–rather than anything you can find in a can or a bottle.
