Life isn’t all fun and games. Often, it’s hard work and sleepless nights. We’re not talking late nights out with friends, or (for college students) late-night cram session because you put a project off too long. Those are choices.
We’re talking about long, sleepless nights because you can’t shut your mind off. Days where the pressures of work, class, friends, family obligations, and life get to be too much.
If you’re nodding your head to this, you aren’t alone. Millions of Americans are plagued with stress, anxiety, and insomnia - all of which can affect daily living. Thankfully, it doesn’t have to be that way. And, you don’t have to take a bunch of prescription medications to achieve a good night's sleep and your inner zen.
Getting a good night's sleep is one of the key factors in achieving optimal health. Just look at all of the commons health symptoms you can help improve just by getting a little more quality shut-eye!
Relax & Calm from Aceva has been clinically formulated to help you get more peaceful days and restful nights. Featuring 300 mg of valerian root extract, this natural 2-in-1 formula has been proven in extensive research trials to promote restful sleep. Plus, it doesn't have the significant negative side effects you often experience with prescription sleep aids or melatonin.
Studies show the key ingredients found in Relax and Calm can also go beyond helping you reduce stress and get a better night's sleep. That's because Relax & Calm features L-Theanine. This is the same amino acid that is found in green tea and has been shown to enhance alpha brain waves. Alpha brain waves trigger a "wakeful relaxation" response in your body and help promote feelings of relaxation, focus, and creativity without making you tired.
Forty minutes after you take Relax & Calm, you’ll feel more alert and relaxed - physically and mentally.
