Sleep Better With Vicks Zzz Quil Products For Sleep Health
Have you ever had trouble sleeping? I have. My entire life. I suffer from bipolar disorder and insomnia is one of the hallmark symptoms of the disorder. It was actually the first symptom I showed. I need at least 6-8 hours of sleep a night to keep myself mentally stable. And when stress mounts, my insomnia kicks in and then all heck breaks loose.
That is why I am so glad I was able to discover Zzz Quil Pure ZZZs Melatonin Gummies and Pure Zzzs Soothing Aromatherapy Balm. Both of these products used in conjunction have helped me in get more sleep in ways that regular melatonin has not. Yes, I have tried plain melatonin but it did not work for me for some reason. But these products do and I will explain why down below.
24 Count Gummies per bottle/$8.99-$10.99 MSRP
These gummies each contain the following:
- 2mg melatonin
- 6g Carbohydrates
- 5g sugars
- includes 5 gram added sugar
- 15 mg sodium
- 100 mg Pure Zzzs Blend:
- chamomile flower extract (Matricaria recutita L) , lemon balm leaf extract (Melissa officinalis L), valerian root extract (Valeriana officinalis L) and lavender flower extract (Lavandula officinalis Chaix)
One serving size is 2 gummies. There are 24 gummies in each bottle, enough for 12 servings. They taste rather delicious and have an effect within about 20 minutes. With the use of these, one can fall asleep naturally, and the herbal blend makes it better than melatonin alone. Chamomile is a very relaxing herb, as is lavender. Valerian root has long been known to help bring sleep on. These gummies are brought to you by the Sleep Experts of Vicks® ZzzQuil™.
I was not expecting much, because honestly, I usually need at least 10 mg of melatonin to help me sleep if I do take it. But these helped and they helped right away. I was feeling sleepy within about 20 minutes. What is even better is that you don't have any grogginess in the morning like you often do with sleeping pills like tranquilizers. I would definitely recommend these. If you have never taken melatonin before and maybe want to start with 1 gummy, then that might be something to try. I have to take 2 gummies for the full effect. Surprisingly, I am very happy with these and will continue to take them for insomnia since they kick in so quickly and I don't have to take them an hour ahead of time or anything like that. And I don't get weird side effects like I did with sleeping pills like Ambien. I am so happy with these gummies. So happy!
1.76 oz./50g $8.99-$10.99 MSRP
Another product I was able to try out is this wonderful, soothing aromatherapy balm from Vicks called Pure Zzzs Soothing Aromatherapy Balm. This wonderful balm helps you wind down at night with the aromatic scent of lavender and chamomile (two known sleep inducing scents) essential oils. Also, it is made with aloe leaf extract and coconut oil, leaving skin feeling moisturized and incredibly soft. Use every night as part of your bedtime routine to help induce sleep or to make sleep time a more pleasant experience. To use: gently massage on the chest, neck, and back to help soothe and relax, leaving your skin incredibly soft.
I adore this soothing balm. I love to rub it on my chest right before bed so that I can smell the soothing lavender and chamomile scent and have it help me relax before bedtime. Not only that, but the balm is made with coconut oil, which is very moisturizing for the skin, so my chest not only smells good but feels amazing. The skin ends up being very soft and moisturized. This product is only for external use and should not be used anywhere there is broken or damaged skin, also make sure to keep it out of the reach of children. It is a very soothing balm that does induce feelings of wanting to relax. That is why I like it so much. The scent is extremely relaxing and reminds me of being little and smelling something that I remember my German grandmother using on me after bathttime right before bedtime.
These Vicks products are available at mass market retailers such as Walgreens, Rite-Aid, CVS, Target, WalMart and other large mass market retailers. Like ZZZQuil on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/ZzzQuil/?fref=ts.
