Solixir's "Relax" formulation is, as the name suggests, a berry flavored relaxation beverage. The product has only 50 calories per can (the sweetness is derived entirely from the 30 percent juice content) and provides a very mellow fruit flavor (we'd describe it as blueberry and blackberry) that is delivered in carbonated form. Forgetting about the included functionality, it's definitely a pleasant tasting product to consume. Functionally, the product's relaxation blend includes chamomile, passionflower, lemon balm, jujube berry, and hibiscus. While we can't comment on the efficacy of this blend, we can say that these are all ingredients that are typical to the category. The packaging and visual side of this product is where the largest improvements have occurred, with a vibrant and polished looking design replacing the more text heavy format that was previously used. The result is something that is definitely one of those most approachable relaxation products out there today. Overall, a big step up for this product.
