    Do you think they are a healthy alternative to drinking wine or beer to relax?

      Drinks like "slow your roll" and other drinks like such have a main ingredient of melatonin, its your brains chemical to say Goodnight! So i would say a drink like that is in a different category than wine or beer, also way more expensive than wine and beer as well, just a gimmick to make money. You can buy melatonin from any drug store for alot less!

      Energy drinks are, for the most part, dangerous. Many rely not only on caffeine, but dangerous herbs like guarana and Panax ginseng that, over time, will destroy your adrenal glands. But, at least those can call themselves "natural," although they're bad for you.

      Moreover, many of the synthetic chemicals should not be used long-term, but clearly, people use energy drinks chronically. In the next few years, you'll probably see many lawsuits and subsequent recalls against some of these.

      People don't seem to realize that there are MANY healthy alternatives to energy drinks, such as Cordyceps sinensis and Eleuthero (Siberian ginseng), which offer whole-body nourishment and energy. Moreover, they correct the endocrine imbalances that frequently lead to the fatigue. If you got issues w/ energy, CORRECT the problem, at its basic level, without resorting to putting a veil on the symptoms.

    This may sound strange but I you buy some sleep medicine and only take half or a fourth of the recommended dose it will relax you.

      Yes, sleeping meds are sedatives.

      If you need good sedatives, I rec. chamomile.
