Melatonin is a hormone your body produces naturally to manage your circadian rhythm. Your melatonin levels should rise at night based on external cues, such as reduced light and cooler temperatures. Those who struggle to fall asleep at night often show signs of melatonin imbalance. SleepBliss contains just the right amount of melatonin to remind your brain it’s time to sleep. L-theanine is another key player in SleepBliss. It is best known as a compound found in green tea that helps moderate the jittery effects of caffeine. How does it work for sleep?
L-theanine is shaped similarly to the excitatory neurotransmitter glutamate, and can therefore fit into the same glutamate receptors in the brain. This blocks glutamate from creating an excitatory response and promotes relaxation and rest. Studies also show that L-theanine enhances GABA levels, which in turn increases dopamine and serotonin in the brain to stop anxiety and make you feel at peace.
Organic Chamomile Extract
Drinking chamomile tea for relaxation may seem incredibly cliché, but the truth is that it works! Multiple studies have shown chamomile—a flower in the daisy family, used therapeutically for thousands of years, by the way—effective in aiding relaxation and helping with anxiety, depression, and insomnia. A 2016 study published in Phytomedicine, for instance, found long-term chamomile use to significantly reduce moderate-to-severe symptoms of generalized anxiety disorders.
According to a 2013-2016 analysis from the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey, 48%—nearly half—of Americans don't get adequate magnesium in their diets. And that's a big deal. Magnesium is involved in more than 300 enzymatic reactions in your body. Beyond promoting bone health, it also helps keep your blood sugar levels stable and blood pressure at healthy levels. But, most importantly, magnesium also affects your brain and mood. In other words: magnesium deficiency can make you feel tired, stressed, and moody. The exact opposite of relaxed.
There’s plenty of high-quality research backing its calming properties (plus, its divine, herbaceous floral scent doesn’t hurt, either!) Curious as to how lavender “tricks” your brain into relaxing? Well, scientists believe that lavender may activate your parasympathetic nervous system. This is the part of your nervous system responsible for relaxation. As a testament to how strong lavender’s calming effects are, this 2010 study found that it could go toe-to-toe against a prescription medication for general anxiety. Here, researchers randomly divided participants into two groups. The first group took Lorazepam (i.e., the anxiety-reducing medication), while the second took an oral dosage of lavender oil, For six weeks. Both groups reported an almost identical decrease in anxiety at the end of the trial period—45% and 46%, respectively.
Organic Rose Hip Extract
You understand the appeal of applying rosehip oil to your skin. It may help increase collagen production and skin elasticity, promoting a glowing, youthful-looking complexion. That's clear. But taking rosehip extract (note: Sleep Bliss contains 20 mg of organic rosehip extract per serving) for relaxation? How does that work? To understand that, it'll be helpful for you to first know this: anxiety is thought to be correlated with a lowered total antioxidant state. Logically speaking, it thus stands to reason that antioxidant supplementation may help ease anxiety symptoms. And that's where rosehip extract comes in. Rosehip seeds contain high levels of polyphenols, carotenoids, and vitamins C and E—all of which have powerful antioxidant properties. Of note is vitamin C, which is known to reduce cortisol (aka “the stress hormone”) levels, improve stress tolerance, and fight sleep deprivation.
Organic Valerian Root
And, finally, 20 mg of organic valerian root extract per serving ties everything together—taking Sleep Bliss’ chill-inducing ability up a notch. Like passionflower extract, valerian root also increases the amount of GABA—reminder: a neurotransmitter responsible for feelings of relaxation—available in your body.
When should I take Sleep Bliss?
Take Sleep Bliss around 30 minutes prior to when you'd like to go to sleep.
Does Sleep Bliss contain sugar?
Unlike other "relaxation beverages" available on the market, Zen Bliss does not contain sugar. Instead, organic Stevia—a zero-calorie, low glycaemic, non-GMO, plant-derived sweetener—lends its sweetness to every sip. That means you can lounge with Zen Bliss (on the couch, by the pool, with friends) without worrying about the health dangers of calorie-dense sugar or artificial sugar.
Is Sleep Bliss safe for pregnant and nursing women?
Zen Bliss is not intended for use by children or pregnant or nursing women. That's because the safety of certain ingredients—like chamomile and valerian root extract—hasn't been well-tested in these demographics. That said, it's always a good idea to speak with a licensed healthcare provider before starting any new dietary supplement (including Zen Bliss!)
This stuff works wonders and is essential to my nighttime routine. I get restful sleep and wake refreshed!

Love the flavor - it’s not bitter like similar drinks. Which means I’m also more likely to hydrate!! Mixes well, no problems there. A great way to sip and soothe the body and mind!
