Throughout my week I wear many different hats. Soccer mom (literally!), wife, friend, PTA officer, chauffer to two tots, business woman, blogger, volunteer, and the list goes on and on. Some days it is harder to get going than others, and some nights I am so bogged down with lists of what needs to be done and things I may have forgotten that I would love a way to perk up in the morning and cool down and relax in the evening! So it was perfect timing that I received an assortment of plant-based supplements and a chakra spray from I AM Enlightened Creations in exchange for my honest opinion.
What did I think?
I love that the I AM products are plant-based and natural – so many nutrition supplements and sprays are made with fabricated chemicals and catch-all phrases (fragrance, anyone??) of unknown descent that I am always left wondering what is safe and what I should avoid!
I AM offers two plant-based, liquid supplements that complement one another well and that were well needed by me! The I AM Energized supplement contains natural caffeine that will give you an energy lift that rivals that of a 12 oz cup of coffee! For someone who never drinks coffee (just can’t get into the flavor!), I was looking forward to finding a natural supplement that could help perk me up on those mornings where I am dragging! I had a perfect opportunity earlier this week when Miss LadyBug came down with the stomach virus – at midnight. I had to wake up, get her cleaned up and her bed stripped down, washed and put back together – and then still get up at 5 AM for work. Needless to say, I was a bit of a zombie on my way to work. Fortunately, I had stowed the bottle of I AM Energized in my purse for just such an occasion! The bottle is just 2.5 oz, so it goes down quickly and easily – and at just 5 calories, I don’t have to have liquid calorie guilt! This plant-based energy supplement was a lifesaver that day! When I was literally falling asleep on my way to work, I perked up pretty quickly. Within mere minutes, I was feeling more alert and more like myself! What was really nice though, was that I did not feel jittery. On the rare occasion that I do drink a coffee or a soda for the boost – I often times feel jittery and somewhat out of control – but I did not have that at all with the I AM Energized!
On the flipside, just last night, I was fretting about the different things I need to complete (entering in the PTO Fundraising order, checking homework, presenting at a meeting for work, baking cookies for bake sale and hosting a freezer meal workshop this weekend were the tops of my fret list!) – I tossed and turned trying different techniques to calm my mind, but nothing was working. Fortunately, I had two more great I AM products to come to my rescue!
The I AM Peace plant-based chakra crystal mist is a delightful mix of essential oils with Gold Ormus and Gem Essences that help bring balance to your chakra and energies. This particular blend is very peaceful as the name suggests and quite calming – I misted my pillow and my pulse points. This helped considerably and I was able to start falling asleep, but felt I needed something more. That is where the I AM Sleepy plant-based liquid supplement from I AM came into play! This gluten-free supplement uses a blend of chamomile, lemon balm, hops and other plants to harness the power of melatonin to lull you into dreamland. Shortly after drinking the I AM Sleepy supplement, I was able to drift off to sleep and stay asleep. I woke the next morning refreshed and ready to start the day!
