Time for another health food product review and this week we have the Creamy Camomile with Cocoa drink from Holland and Barrett health food store.
Holland and Barrett describe this product as: A charming combo of chamomile and cocoa to keep you warm at night. Chocolate flavour instant hot drink with Chamomile, Lemon Balm, Amino Acids and sweetener. Make this the twilight of your day!
The Creamy Camomile with Cocoa drink contains a number of synergistic stress-busting herbs and nutrients such as Magnesium Citrate, the “nervine” herbs Camomile flower and Lemon Balm, plus the anxiety-reducing and calming amino acid L-Theanine. L-Arginine is also included and Medium Chain Triglycerides.
The Creamy Camomile with Cocoa drink is vegetarian-friendly, contains no artificial colours or added sugar. Plus only contains 32 calories per serving, which makes it an excellent beverage choice for those looking to watch their caloric intake.
In my opinion, this is a very under-rated product from Holland and Barrett and definitely one to try if you enjoy hot chocolate drinks and are prone to stress, anxiety or sleep issues.
The Natural Health Blogger’s Review
I purchased the Creamy Camomile with Cocoa drink a few month back, during one of my routine visits to the local Holland and Barrett store. Since then, I’ve been hooked over the cold winter months here in Scotland.
The taste is delicious and it’s the perfect hot drink to help wind down after a hard days work.
The synergistic combination of calming and stress-busting herbs, amino acids, magnesium and other nutrients, are extremely effective for promoting a relaxed state and getting the body ready for sleep.
The Creamy Camomile With Cocoa drink is well priced at £5.99 for 120g of powder and you get 12 servings to the packet.
The only downside is that the powder is slightly difficult to mix because it thickens so quickly. The instructions recommend making a paste with a small amount of cold water first, before adding the hot water or warm milk.
However, I just skip this step and add the hot water, which allows the product to mix to a better consistency.
£5.99 per 120g
