Hi! I have tried many other such adaptogens so I know a bit to gauge the effects. In short, this is good ( i felt SOME relaxation after it, consistently). BUT i would add: the effect can be stronger maybe you ca tweak the ingredients a bit. Other i took gave me a deep relaxation response. Also, the taste is a bit not so appealing, maybe you can use some stevia (not too strong) or some natural flavor (berries) to make the taste more inspiring. As it is now, is a bit flat (the taste). Is good, but i would look for other stronger solutions. And the price is usually high for this sort of herbs, so it is good if u can make the recipe stronger in relaxation inducing effects.
