The expectations and demands women place on themselves on a daily basis are often incredibly overwhelming. Whether your expectations are career, family or both, the challenge to balance your life can leave women anxiety-ridden and run down.
This is how Elizabeth Thompson, creator of Zen Life Supplements, felt when she found herself a divorced, single mother living in her sister’s attic over 8 years ago. Exhausted from trying to provide for her daughters, while rebuilding her own life, she recounted the moments of panic and desperation from a run-down psyche. She aimed to make her life more peaceful and fulfilling by creating an all-natural supplement that would help her achieve this calmer lifestyle.
Some of the most common menopausal symptoms include insomnia, anxiety and physical tension from the constant volley of changing hormones. All-natural supplements are one of the ways that women sometimes seek to find relief from these life-interfering symptoms. Zen Life Supplements claim that you can triumph over anxiety and worry with one capsule a day.
But here is the question that you may be wondering. Do Zen Life Supplements really work? Can one, all-natural capsule have that much power over your happiness and well-being?
Here’s what we know about these all-natural supplements: The natural ingredients found in Zen Life are: GABA, L-theanine, Skullcap, Lemon Balm, Holy Basil, Ashwagandha, B6 Vitamin, and Magnesium. Wow! Some of those ingredients are recognizable and others sound like newly formed African countries. Let’s break it down and briefly examine each ingredient.
GABA. An amino acid that slows down the speed at which your neurons travel; slowing down this process can eradicate the racing thoughts so many of us experience.
L-theanin. This is an amino acid that moves fast and promotes the production of serotonin and dopamine. These are the neurotransmitters that make you happy!
Skullcap and Lemon Balm. These are herbs that act as relaxants, calming your nerves and promoting sleep.
Holy Basil and Ashwagandha. These are stress relief herbal remedies. Holy Basil has been credited with helping revitalize and repair the adrenal gland. The adrenal gland is part of the stress response system of the body. Both herbs have been known to help with chronic fatigue.
Vitamin B6. This vitamin strengthens the immune system to help you not get sick from stress.
Maganesium. When combined with GABA, magnesium can calm nerve cells down and enable muscles to relax.
So, now that we know the ingredients, can one capsule a day really reduce anxiety?
It would seem that the ingredients complement each other and work together to produce fast, efficient results. However, as with any supplement, the best advice would be to first talk with your physician to determine if this supplement will interact with any other drugs you may be taking for chronic conditions.
