Futurebiotics Chill Pill Review
What You Should Know
Futurebiotics Chill Pill is an extremely inexpensive supplement (less than $10 per bottle) designed to help the user calm down and relax. Though the idea seems simple enough, many mood-altering supplements contain ingredients that can interact with prescription anti-depressant and anti-anxiety medications or cause mood swings for users with mental health issues. If you currently have, or have had, a mental medical condition – whether or not you are being treated medically for that condition – you should speak with your physician before taking Futurebiotics Chill Pill or any other mood-altering supplement. Just because the supplement is available over the counter does not mean it is safe for everyone.

The ingredient list starts off safe enough with B vitamins. The body will use up all the B vitamins it needs within a couple hours and shed the excess out in urine. You may notice your urine change color to a bright yellow.
The first active ingredient is ashwagandha root extract. This extract has been clinically proven to reduce anxiety in animal studies. There do not appear to be any negative side effects, but if you suffer from hypothyroidism you should consult a physician before taking a supplement that contains the extract.
The next group of ingredients is the herbal proprietary blend known as the Chill Pill Herb Blend. The ingredients are commonly found in anti-stress supplements. The only ingredient that gives us pause is horsetail as it can have diuretic effects and may cause dehydration if the user does not consume enough water throughout the day.
The final herbal blend consists of ingredients that help facilitate the absorption of all other ingredients. These are not active ingredients in the formula as they have no effect on mood or anxiety.

Futurebiotics Chill Pill may not help control hunger or increase metabolism, but it may make it easier for the dieter to sleep at night. We would not take a supplement with valerian root during the day because it may cause sleepiness and that could interfere with driving and various thought processes.
