What it helps with:

Sleep
Melatonin helps naturally promote sleep and relaxation which are important to overall health.

-Melatonin is a hormone made by the pineal gland in the brain that is linked to sleep and wake cycles. Your body produces high levels of melatonin when it’s dark and low levels when it’s light. When we get older our bodies don’t produce as much melatonin.

Immune Support
Vitamin C plus other antioxidants, Zinc and Manganese, and Vitamin D help support your immune system.

Fortify
Calcium, Magnesium, Potassium and other key nutrients help replenish your body.

What I thought:
It is very easy to use. Just open a pack, pour in a cup, add water, mix. then drink.
I first tried the berry , the flavor was ok. At first I wasn’t sure because it was fizzing and a lot of those drinks just don’t sit well with me. I didn’t love it but didn’t hate it either. If Im having trouble sleeping I would use it again. I had a headache and just couldn’t get to bed. After tossing & turning trying to get to bed, I grabbed a pack of Emergen Zzzz and drank it, within 20 minutes I was relaxed and sleeping. I like that it has melatonin , something our body produces already so it won’t mess with my body. I woke up feeling good and not drowsy ( like some sleep aids). If you travel or have trouble sleeping , try Emergen-Zzzz.

Tips to getting to bed:
* Turn off lights.
* Try not having a tv in your room.
* Limit tv, computer, & yes even your cell phone before bed .(The artificial light suppresses the release of melatonin)
* Keep a journal near your bed in case you have any thoughts, things you forgot to do. Even do this before you go to bed so when you are about to go to bed you don’t have these thoughts which will keep you from getting to bed.
*Exercise. This always helps me get a good nights sleep.
*Stretch before bed

Brookside Dark Chocolate Crunchy Clusters#DiscoverBrookside

Two years ago I found out about Brookside chocolate. I loved their chewy fruit center and dark chocolate combo.
It was perfect for a chocolate craving. You only needed a few to satisfy you. ( Even if you want to eat the whole bag because they are so good)

Well Brookside now has the dark chocolate and fruit but now added some crunch with crispy multigrains.

I received a back of Dark Chocolate Crunchy Clusters – Berry Medley flavor

Some of the clusters were quite big but I used the smaller pieces at the bottom to put in my greek yogurt as an afternoon snack. So yummy.

I snacked on the bigger pieces while I was checking out Crowdtap’s website and when I watched tv. I also shared some with my friend. He is a fan of these too.

You can pair these with wine, top ice cream, by themselves, or put them in a homemade trail mix. So many other possibilities.

I know I’ve seen them at CVS, Walgreens, Target, Rite Aid. So check at store near you.

Have you tried Brookside chocolate? Have you tried these yet? What do you think?
