Review: EcoFuture - ChillShot

I had a funny delivery in the mail recently, and thought I might share it with you all. 

This is a stress relief supplement that was sent to me by the good folks at OurEcoFuture, who you may recall also produce the Aqua Prove water treatment, an organic hand sanitizer spray and a BioDefence foot protection treatment.

This is the Chill Shot, which is purported to promote a feeling of tranquility, reduced stress, less anxiety and inspires a greater sense of self confidence and lessening social inhibitions". That's quite a sell, in any-ones book. I gave it a shot.

With an ingredient list that reads much like a multivitamin tablet, mixed with the key "secret ingredient" Zembrin®, a Sceletium Tortuosum extract, with the more mundane but standard vitamins A, D, B6, B12, C, E, Biotin, iodine, zinc, Phosphatidylserine (a memory/cognition booster) , calcium, folate, Pantothenic Acid (another vitamin, B5) and copper, its a content rich supplement in a 60mL package.
I've been a test subject for a nutritional biochemist before, so am no stranger to the taste these kinds of things can have, but for the unprepared, this might have been a shock. Think about chewing multivitamin tablets, and ashing it down with grapefruit juice. You know its working, but isn't necessarily what you'd want to base a cocktail on. 

At slightly higher volume of consumption, the effects are reported to  become more pronounced and produce feelings of euphoria, increased tactile sensitivity, as well as amplified libidinal desires, not to use if pregnant, nursing or operating machinery. and that hit is not intended for use by persons under the age of 12.

I found it to be a very gentle buzz, not unlike the Musashi energy drinks I used to have, quite different from the Red Bull/V type go-juice drinks. Think of it as a multivitamin shot, with a rounded calming effect, and you'd have the right idea. 

High stress survival situation, on limited nutritional value rations? This might be the ticket to help keep your head (and brains) when you don't have time to look after yourself or get enough rack-time.
