I recommend it to all of my friends!
I’m a health care worker and I am constantly on the go at work and at home. Sometimes at night, I can’t relax enough to sleep or turn my brain off. I’ve always dismissed herbal supplements but this has actually helped me get off of my prescribed anxiety meds. I sleep better and I feel more calm during the day. My kids have noticed that I’ve been nicer too! It’s really changed my life.

Zen has been remarkable at helping me sleep. My sleep issues have worsened over the years, and I have not been able to find a solution. I either wake up in the middle of the night and am wide awake, or I toss around ideas in my head and never really get that deep sleep feeling. I have been taking Zen for over a month before bed, and have slept better than in the last decade. I fall asleep easily and stay soundly asleep.
