I’ve been a little stressed lately. I feel like I am constantly saying that. It’s the truth though, and all I can does take a step back and look at two aspects f that stress: the causes and the remedies. Luckily for me, life is settling down right now so for the most part, I have the causes part under control. When I was in the midst of the craziness that was balancing school and work, however, I needed a little help with the remedies aspect. While I certainly have my go-to drinks for stress relief (read: a whole lot of tea, a little bit of vino), I knew I needed a bit more help if I wanted to remain sane.
Well, in the miraculous way that all things seem to work out, a remedy was dropped on my lap when I needed it the most. Quite literally dropped on my lap, as the first bottle of the stuff I am about to tell you about did not quite make it to my mouth and instead exploded all over my freshly washed jeans. Not a great first impression for a stress relief drink, but it definitely redeemed itself with the second bottle. I recently had the opportunity to work with neuroBLISS to try out and spread the word about their line of stress relieving drinks. The drinks are part of a more extensive line of neuro products, which includes drinks that address ailments ranging form lack of energy to immune support.
The drinks are free of artificial colors and flavors, and are aimed in aiding in stress relief in a natural way. I am certainly down with that. Here is a little more info about the drinks:
- neuro BLISS is a delicious tropical citrus lychee flavored drink designed to reduce stress and relax the mind.
- It contains chamomile and a powerful blend of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants including L-theanine, an amino acid found in green tea which has been found to reduce stress, produce relaxation and enhance focus.
- This combination provides a calming effect and promotes a positive outlook by reducing stress levels, improving memory and attention and supporting the brain, resulting in the ability to concentrate on one’s goals – not the pressure.
- All varieties of neuro drinks have only 35 calories per bottle and contain no artificial colors or flavors.
- neuro drinks are available at Target, Walgreens, Safeway, 7-11 and other national grocery, convenience and drug stores.

Also, right now neuroBLISS is running a contest with a prize of a $10,000 dream vacation. Sounds pretty sweet, right? All you have to do is share a moment of bliss and use the hashtag #BLISSandTell on Instagram or Twitter.
Here’s my moment of bliss:
Collapsing on a freshly made bed after a crazy long day and taking a night off from technology. No phone (post photo op, of course…), no computer, no Instagram stalking, no paper writing, no blog reading. That’s what I call BLISS.
If you are interested in a little more info about the benefits and the crazy stress phenomenon in our society, take a look at this infographic.
- neuro drinks recently conducted a study that surveyed more than 1,200 consumers. The findings revealed that:
- Nearly 50 percent of Americans spend at least half their daily lives stressed out.
- The cure for stress varies, with 89 percent agreeing that a night out on the town does little for stress relief.
- More than half admit a vacation is what they need the most, while a quarter of the respondents say personal time would help treat the stress.
- In response, neuro is urging Americans to join a stress reduction movement with the launch of its BLISS and Tell campaign, which encourages consumers to take time to relax and share their blissful moments.
Now what did I think of the drinks?
What I liked:
-The taste. The lychee flavor is subtle and not overpowering, while still adding a nice flavor. While the flavor is definitely not extremely natural, is doesn’t taste fake either.
-The drink did seem to have a positive effect on my stress level. Whether it was simply a result of a placebo effect or not, I did feel significantly more relaxed after drinking one.
-Lastly, and most superficially, the packaging is just plain pretty. I’m a sucker for good design.
What I didn’t like:
-The drinks contain small amount of sucralose (an artificial sweetener) and preservatives. I tend to stay away form both of these in packaged products due to my extremely sensitive stomach and the fact that I believe the less added processed ingredients, the better.
That being said, I still believe these drink are much better than so many of the alternatives out there, and certainly better than some of the other methods of stress relief people turn to. We could all use a little less stress in our lives, as I know first hand, and neuroBLISS does a darn good job of helping out.

I was compensated for my review and provided with the neuroBLISS drinks to try. As always, all the thoughts/rants/etc in the post are 100% my own, since you all know I would never feed you any BS!
