Product Description

Introducing the Unique, 2 in 1 Formula Designed to Reduce Anxiety and Enhance Sleep  

Many individuals in our society are stressed out trying to keep up with the fast-paced, 21st century lifestyle. Daily demands are increasing while the number of hours in a day remains the same. Societal expectations are also becoming increasingly unrealistic in regards to how we look, how much we earn and what we accomplish. These unrealistic expectations lead to chronically elevated anxiety levels that can manifest into ill health and disease. According to the Anxiety and Depression Association of America, anxiety disorders are the most common mental illnesses, affecting around 40 million adults and cost more than $42 billion a year.  

Chronic Anxiety May Lead to the Development of:

• Depression

• Headaches

• Poor Quality of Life (QOL)

• Digestive Problems

• Chronic Pain

• Insomnia/Sleep Disturbances

A majority of individuals who suffer from chronically elevated anxiety levels also sleep poorly and suffer from insomnia. This is a vicious cycle, as anxiety causes poor sleep and poor sleep further increases anxiety levels. Approximately 81 million Americans suffer from difficulties with nighttime sleep and almost 10 million of those individuals are using medication to get to sleep. A recent survey showed that insomnia cost the U.S. around $63 billion annually in lost work performance.

A Short Stint of Insomnia Can Cause:

• Fatigue

• Inability to focus or concentrate

• Poor memory

• Mood disturbance

• Daytime sleepiness

• Low motivation or energy

• Increased errors or accidents

Most Americans suffering from poor sleep resort to prescription sleeping pills as a solution to the problem without investigating the many side effects common with the use of these medications.

Common Side Effects of Sleeping Pills:

• Headaches

• Muscle aches

• Constipation

• Dry mouth

• Daytime sleepiness

• Trouble concentrating

• Dizziness

• Rebound insomnia

The Relax & Calm Difference

Relax and Calm is a clinically validated, hormone-free, 2 in 1 product that promotes peaceful days and restful nights featuring a calming amino acid, natural herbal ingredients and a relaxing mineral.

L-Theanine

This gentle amino acid is naturally found in green tea and has been shown to promote relaxation without causing drowsiness by increasing alpha waves in the brain. Alpha waves are known to induce an alert and relaxed mental and physical state. Research has shown that L-theanine reaches the brain and increases alpha wave activity within 40 minutes of ingestion.1

Valerian Root, Passion Flower and Hops Extracts

The herb that has received the most attention for its ability to promote restful sleep is valerian root extract. Evidence from randomized trials suggest it has the ability to induce sleep without producing significant negative residual effects.2,3,4,5

It appears valerian root extract’s ability to induce sleep is further enhanced when additional herbal extracts are used in conjunction, promoting a synergistic sleep-enhancing effect. A double-blind, placebo-controlled trial showed that a combination supplement of valerian extract (300 mg), passionflower extract (80 mg) and hops extract (30 mg) was able to outperform the benzodiazepine drug zolpidem in improving some markers of sleep in subjects diagnosed with primary insomnia.6 In just 2 weeks, subjects using the herbal combination supplement were able to sleep an additional 150 minutes longer (72.5% improvement) and fell asleep 60.4 minutes faster (71.9% improvement) on average compared to baseline. These improvements were superior to the improvements seen in subjects using the drug zolpidem, who were able to sleep an additional 129 minutes longer (60.8% improvement) and fell asleep 63.6 minutes faster (70.6% improvement) compared to baseline.

Relax & Calm for Sleep Review by Billi

First night taking this supplement and it was the best sleep I have gotten in months. I slept sound for 9 hours without waking to use the restroom. No tossing and turning all night. I woke up feeling rested and did not have to drag myself out of bed like most days. Thanks for an amazing product! (Posted on 10/29/16)
