About Drank (taken from website):
Formulated to relax the body, mind and soul, "Drank" contains a combination of Valerian Root, Rose Hips, and Melatonin designed to "slow your roll" after a hectic day. "Drank" is perfect for those who can appreciate extreme relaxation. So grab a Drank and "Slow Your Roll"!
Ingredients and Benefits
Melatonin: This brain hormone naturally controls the human sleep cycle. Melatonin, therefore, tells our bodies when it is time for sleep and when it is time to wake up. "Drank" contains a safe dose of Melatonin which relaxes those who drink it and helps them improve both the duration and quality of their sleep. Melatonin extracts aid the body in resetting its natural 'clock' and are even strong enough to prevent the effects of jet-lag. "Drank" enhances the positive effects of melatonin with flair and flavor which all are sure to enjoy.
Valerian Root: Valerian Root is known to benefit those who may suffer from anxiety; restlessness; insomnia; mental strain; lack of concentration; excitability; stress; chronic headaches or migraines; nervous stomach cramps; bladder control issues; chronic pain, menopause; and the discomfort, and emotional distress which may occur with menstruation. "Drank" contains a healthy dose measured to compliment the effects of the melatonin and enhance relaxation. Valerian Root has been used around the world for centuries as a safe sedative without the morning 'grogginess' and possibility of addiction that man-made sedatives generally contain. "Drank" takes this old age remedy and puts it in the mix with melatonin to "slow your roll" after a long day.
Rose Hips: Another age-old remedy for what ails the body, Rose-Hips, is an excellent source of vitamin-C, contains biologically valuable bioflavinoids and is a great source of anti-oxidants. Rose-Hips have traditionally been used to treat diarrhea, nervousness, exhaustion, stress, urinary problems. Rose- Hips is commonly consumed by itself in tea (a drink) or is used as a topical oil. “Drank” adds Rose-Hips to the Melatonin and Valerian root to create extreme relaxation in a safe and healthy way.
About a week after being in contact with the wonderful people from Drank I received a wonderful package on my doorstep that contained a few cans of Drank. Now my first impression was: “will this really work?” I’ve always been a bit skeptic of things such as energy drinks and I’ve never even heard of a relaxation drink before now so of course I was a bit iffy. It actually took a few days for me to get my nerve up and give Drank a try and as soon as I popped the tab I was greeted with the wonderful aroma of grape and some awesome little carbonation bubbles! I was quite surprised to see that the color of Drank is actually a light purple which is awesome in itself since purple is my favorite color!
Anyways let’s get on with the actual review. I was expecting a rather strong and overbearing taste like some of the energy drinks I have drank in the past but I was very pleased when the taste was a very light grape flavor. The initial drink really woke up my taste buds and I was very excited to finish drinking the can. The other flavor notes I could taste was that of sugar and seemed like a very light hint of lemon closer to the end of the can. The overall experience from the entire can was a very wonderful taste sensation. It really reminded me of grape flavored hard candy and I LOVE IT!
Although I had expected to get a calming sensation within 15-20 min after the last drink, I instead got a bit of a sugar rush that was enough for me to finish up with my last bit of Algebra homework and fold the last load of laundry. Soon after the sugar rush…I’m going to estimate 20 min I started to feel more relaxed but not sleepy…which with a three year old that’s a major issue, so that I can still focus on him and not need a nap. “Bug” and I actually relaxed on the couch and watched his favorite Disney movie and the best part is that I wasn’t side tracked with thoughts of I should really be doing such and such. I got to focus my full attention on “Bug” and the movie with was amazing.
Since that first can of Drank I have drank the rest of the cans that I was sent and I’m on the lookout for a 711 around here so that I can purchase more. I would have never thought that I would say this but this relaxing drink is awesome and it really works and best of all it doesn’t make me drowsy so I can still focus on my family but I can also have the down time I need to give my very over worked brain a rest. I also love to drink Drank about an hour before bed time, although it does not make me sleepy, it does allow my mind and body to be relaxed enough that I don’t have any problems drifting off to sleep at night.
If you are a super busy mom or student or both like I am I really recommend trying Drank at least once. I’m sure your going to love it as much as I do.
