The anticipation of the summer holidays is programmed in our kiwi DNA.
And with that comes a packing list essential for our sun-drenched getaways.
While skin, sun and hair care minis are popular, travel-sized supplements usually involve decanting larger jars into snaplock bags or leaving them behind.
Women’s health care brand Eve has created mini sized jars of their popular Chill Pills and Morning Person – both essential to support a relaxed, stress-free break.
Morning Person is formulated to free people from commonly felt spirals of exhaustion, which we tend to combat with a flat white. It lifts energy levels and, in turn, supports better brain function and healthy stress response – without the anxiety-inducing issues caffeine often brings.
A unique combination of high strength and fast-acting bioavailable B vitamins and ginseng provide immediate energy support in the short term, while adaptogenic Rhodiola Rosea works overtime to bolster internal engines for healthy vitality long term.
Bonus, Morning Person also acts as a great energy lift after a few too many Rosés in the sun.
Like Morning Person, Chill Pills work immediately. Containing high-strength kava that, unlike other herbs and adaptogens, instantly bring on calmer feelings.
Often compared to CBD, it’s like meditation in a bottle for times of stress and anxiety, and also supports healthy sleep. Key to ensuring the break provides some much needed R&R.
Kavalactones, the active constituent in kava, work on the body’s endocannabinoid system in a way that has been compared to CBD; soothing and calming the mind and body.
Additionally, kava has been extensively studied for its amazing effects on sleep, relaxation and anxiety. For example:
- This double blind study where 61 people received daily doses of kava or placebo for 4 weeks, found that the kava group demonstrated improvements in both sleep and anxiety levels.
- This really cool multicenter randomized placebo-controlled double-blind trial covered 101 people suffering from anxiety for 25-weeks. The results showed that the results from kava had ‘significant superiority’ over psychopharmaceuticals starting from week 8 onwards. This supports kava as a treatment alternative to tricyclic antidepressants and benzodiazepines in anxiety disorders, with proven long-term efficacy and none of the tolerance problems associated with tricyclics and benzodiazepines.
- Further studies echo the above results. Such as this randomized, placebo-controlled double-blind study, where two groups of 29 patients each with anxiety syndromes were treated for four weeks with three daily doses of kava extract or a placebo. They used 100mg kava extract at 70% kavalactones (the exact dosage in Chill Pills) and reported a reduction in anxiety in the kava group.
EVE launch their new mini-sized Chill Pills and Morning Person late November. The 7-day travel bag supply will be available online for RRP $16.95.
