Don’t Let the Bed Bugs Bite
“It’s not stress that kills us, it’s our reaction to it.” -Hans Selye
Doctors have continued to report more cases of insomnia as stress levels continue to affect the lives of many.
PepsiCo plans on coming to the rescue with their new drink Driftwell. The beverage contains 200 milligrams of L-theanine and 10% of the recommended daily value of magnesium. Will this combination be the potent sleep potion people have always dreamed of?
There are studies that have suggested that L-theanine does have the ability to improve sleep quality and can even reduce the physical symptoms of stress. Emily Silver, vice president of innovation and capabilities at Pepsi’s North American beverages unit said “From a scientific perspective, we feel really good about making that claim around L-theanine. Specifically, we have safety in clinical data to prove that it works.”
Also, consumers shouldn’t expect to be drinking a Pepsi-like-beverage right before bed. The beverage is considered an enhanced water drink rather than a carbonated sugary pop.
Lastly, even if this product doesn’t get you snoring like a banshee, investors should never forget to have a pie. “Stress cannot exist in the presence of a pie.”
