SOUTHFIELD, Mich., Feb. 16, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Enter Sandman. Â Unfortunately for many Americans, sleep and relaxation do not come so easily. Â Enter Quick Beverages, the leader in better-for-you, functional shots innovation. Â
As the nation prepares to mark National Sleep Awareness Week in March, Quick Beverages, part of the ViVa Beverages LLC portfolio of products, today announced the national launch of Quick Beverages SLEEPâ„˘ and Quick Beverages RELAXâ„˘, new 2oz. liquid sleep and relaxation aids made from a proprietary blend of all-natural, time-tested botanical ingredients in a zero calorie, sugar-free, berry flavor formula that works in only minutes. Â Quick Beverages SLEEP and Quick Beverages RELAX are available nationwide at Vitamin World, via Amazon.com and continues to expand distribution at drug stores and convenience stores throughout the country. Â Suggested retail price is $2.99 per bottle. Â Learn more at www.QuickBeverages.com.
The company's founders developed Quick Beverages SLEEP and RELAX because they understand that nobody is immune from tension in today's fast-paced world and that stress not only prevents people from sleeping, it can prohibit them from having productive days and a healthy life. Â According to the National Sleep Foundation, nearly seven out of 10 Americans â€” some 200 million people â€” say they experience frequent sleep problems. Â In revealing its 2010 Stress in America survey, the American Psychological Association stated that three-quarters of Americans say they experience stress at levels that exceed what they define as healthy, putting themselves at risk for developing chronic illnesses such as heart disease, diabetes and depression.
"We live in a high-stress, amped-up, always-on-the-go society, which is why energy shots have grown into a huge category," said Paul Fuegner of ViVa Beverages. "Quick Beverages SLEEP and RELAX are the all-natural alternatives to energy shots. Â They work within minutes and without side effects to help people find some relief with peace-of-mind and a good night's sleep."
Fast-acting Quick Beverages SLEEP and RELAX were developed after the founders searched the world to find the optimal blend of botanical ingredients, which include: Melatonin (acts on sleep promoting hormone receptors), GABA (regulates muscle tone throughout the nervous system), Valerian Root (promotes relaxation without drowsiness), Lemon Balm (enhances mood, alertness and sense of calm, Chamomile (reduces stress and anxiety), and Passionflower (reduces anxiety).
Fuegner concluded, "Typical sleep and relaxation aids come in prescription narcotics or OTC pills, syrups or medicines which are expensive, taste awful and can cause a risk of dependency. Â Quick Beverages SLEEP and RELAX offer those who suffer from sleeplessness and stress an effective new remedy made from time-tested, non-addictive, all-natural ingredients."
