Tranquility. Balance. Vitality. Zenbev from Biosential is a delicious beverage mix of organic ingredients that provides a natural source of tryptophan derived from pumpkin seeds. As a precursor to serotonin and melatonin, tryptophan helps to enhance mood, emotion, and sleep. The tryptophan in pumpkin seed powder metabolizes into serotonin, and in a nighttime environment, it converts into melatonin which allows us to fall asleep naturally.

Zenbev pumpkin seed powder is 100% vegetarian and vegan and contains 90% organic ingredients.
Dr. Craig Hudson, Clinical Psychiatrist: Zenbev provides tryptophan. Tryptophan then gets into your brain because Zenbev has a formulation that allows that to happen, and the result is an all natural, organic drink mix beverage. The main ingredients are pumpkin seeds and dextrose. And at night it will induce a nice natural sleep. When you wake up, you go back to feeling refreshed again. And because it's a natural product, we don't have problems with dependence. We don't have difficulty with needing to take more and more of the product to maintain the effect. Zenbev is an all natural organic drink mix which is designed to fit in with the normal chemistry of the body and the brain.
In the dark - and only in the dark - it produces melatonin. Melatonin is a natural substance in the brain that's supposed to be there in dark conditions. It will induce a natural sleep that has all the elements of sleep architecture, of normal sleep architecture. You'll have light sleep. You'll have deep sleep. You'll have dream sleep.
Zenbev is quite simple to take. It's a powdered drink mix. It can be mixed with warm water or the beverage of your choice. If you're avoiding liquids before bedtime, you can mix it in apple sauce or jam. It doesn't need to be taken on a full or empty stomach. So you won't feel any type of nausea or discomfort when you're taking Zenbev. The time for sleep is a time for cell regrowth and cell repair. It's not just about sleep. It's all about body and mind.
"I'm a morning talk show host. I have to be up at 5:00 every day, and I broadcast sporting events at night that don't end up until about midnight or later on. I don't get a chance to sleep that much and when I do I want it to be quality sleep. I don't want to get on meds. That's why Zenbev is so good. It's all natural. It's USDA organic, and it works." - Michael Cross, Radio Talk Show Host
"Zenbev has been completely helping me get through my busy schedule. I'm feeling refreshed in the morning, and I have the energy to go throughout the day. And then in the evening I'm able to relax and catch a good night's sleep." - Michele Wright, College Student
"So I take the Zenbev and put it in some hot tea and soothe myself. And then come the next morning when I need to get up and catch a flight and get out there, I'm all energized again. And the great thing I like about it is that it's all natural." - Alexander Harris, Entertainer
"So now, with Zenbev I'm happy, and I sleep so well at night." - Jessica Daugherty, Office Manager

Taken at night for insomnia, and in the morning for anxiety. Start at 1 tablespoon for three nights. Mix with warm water or your favorite non-caffeinated beverage. For those who are avoiding liquids before bed, mix with applesauce. Take one half hour before bedtime and do something calming and relaxing (i.e. not mentally stimulating) before retiring to bed. After three nights increase the dosage as necessary allowing three more nights to achieve the desired effect. Continue to increase as necessary. Two tablespoons are usually sufficient for most clients, however some individuals require more. Individual requirements are not directly associated with Body Mass, each person’s biochemistry is different. It usually takes a few doses before its optimal benefit is seen and it continues to work for a few days/nights after it was last taken. One way of optimizing this benefit is to take Zenbev for 5-7 days/nights and then stop it for 2-3 days/nights before resuming again in a similar pattern. Zenbev can be taken safely on a daily basis. Make sure you are taking a B-complex multivitamin as tryptophan will metabolize to vitamin B3 if your body is deficient.
May cause drowsiness. This product should not be taken prior to operating a vehicle or heavy machinery at night. Pregnant and nursing women, or those currently taking an antidepressant and/or lithium should consult a physician before using this product.
