De-Stress AND Snooze with Stress Balls

I received this product for FREE to review. Although I received it for free, it does not change my opinion on this product. 

It is important to sleep properly, to be healthy and maintain general well-being. Besides, enough sleep makes you more attentive and increase your level of creativity. Sleep deficiency has many negative consequences, including suffering from heart diseases.

People think that sleeping aids work similarly. I've used Advil PM to help with my insomnia, and it works. But there's another product that works faster for me, and is natural. 

De-Stress + Snooze blend is a daily herbal stress and sleep supplement. It contains:

Melatonin: a naturally occurring hormone in your body that plays a critical role in sleep. Natural melatonin production is connected to time of day, increasing when it’s dark and decreasing when it’s light, but in our uber-connected world, we can sometimes unknowingly affect this production cycle. Elevated stress, fluorescent lights, phone and computer screens can all impact the release on melatonin.

Ashwagandha: one of the main components in both our De-Stress + Relax and De-Stress + Snooze blends – has been used for thousands of years in Ayurvedic Medicine. Ashwagandha has numerous health benefits, including reducing stress, and helping with focus*.

Chamomile: a relaxant, anxiolytic, and natural sleep aid.

De-Stress + Snooze is ideal for individuals who suffer from occasional cases of sleeplessness. Easy chewability makes them the best natural sleep aids to ingest. It is recommended that you take two pills 30 minutes before you go to bed to maximize its effectiveness. 

To be honest, I was not fond of the taste or smell the first time I took it, however, I have gotten used to it. On my first night, I took two as directed, and slept for 10 hours straight (something I haven't done since Everly was born). The next day, I was groggy and lethargic. Coffee and Redbull didn't help me at all. I was not happy. This is 1 of the rare side effects you can get.

The next night, I took one and slept for 8 hours. The next day, I was my normal self again. Taking De-Stress + Snooze puts me to sleep within 20 minutes, so definitely take it when you're ready to relax and de-stress. When I take Advil PM, which contains diphenahydramine, it still takes up to 2 hours. 20 minutes or 2 hours? That's an easy answer.

However, De-Stress + Snooze doesn't work for everyone. Zac always wakes up in the middle of the night. Its just normal for him - no matter what he takes to help him sleep. He took the recommended dosage the 1st night and woke up in the middle of the night. The following night - same thing. He was also not found of the smell and taste. What works for me, may not work for you.

 De-Stress + Snooze is drug-free, gluten-free, lactose-free, gelatin-free, and non-habit forming. And the distinct flavor is powerful, like its stress-relieving powers. It is a supplement designed to help you sleep well and wake rested, and it just so happens to do just that for me. It is a gentle relaxation that helps to “prepare” me for sleep.

The dosage on the bottle says to take two pills 30-60 minutes before bedtime. I will normally give myself a little more time for it to really kick in. I begin to feel it around the hour to 1 1/2 hour mark. By that time I am able to feel asleep rather quickly and stay asleep throughout the night. In the morning when I wake up, I am well rested, but never tired or groggy. These are by far the best relaxation supplements I have tried. I have purchased 4 bottles at this point and will continue to do so!
