I use ZenMind in conjunction with my usual Melatonin and Magnesium on occasion. The ingredients of GABA and l-theanine have been well-studied to induce calmness and sleep. I have even taken one during the night when awakened, and it seems to help (along with some deep breathing). My only qualm is the inactive ingredients ... and now it seems they have added sunflower oil (not organic either) to the mix. Luckily I don't take it on a regular basis, as the rice hull concentrate (also not organic and may contain traces of arsenic). For the high price of this supplement, I only wish they could offer better quality ingredients.
My pharmacist toldl me to try this. After over 15years on and off drugs like risperdal and zyprexa, 3 or 4 capsules of this a day took it's place. I didn't believe it, but it works great for schizoprenia, even the violent type and bipolar disorders. Now people in my family are totally off all those dangerous drugs. It also seems to help with weight loss. A note: This is not a drug so it doesn't work immediately or in a few days. It takes a few weeks to really get into your system, and it takes a few months to really see the effects. We saw results in as little as two weeks, but it was after about 2 to 3 months that there is a large differene. My pharmacist said that the longer you use it, the better it works. And that seems to be true. Fantasik product.
As I have bipolar disorder (as diagnosed by my psychiatrist and currently taking medications), upon reading the customer reviews on iHerb I started taking zenmind (2 or 3 capsules daily) and zinc (50mg, 1 daily) since Tuesday.
Before I started taking the zenmind and zinc, things that would have upset me and resulted in crying are now more tolerable. Mentally and emotionally I am more resilient. I used to hate going shopping because of the crowds and feeling claustrophobic/socially anxious. Now I don't feel as bothered as previously.
I have noticed that my moods are more stable too, and generally speaking I'm more productive during the day now, whereas before I'd be quite idle and wasting time.
I would strongly recommend this product.
