An RD Answers Your Questions About Feeling Zen™

by grace gavilanes - May 04, 2020

Welcome to #VitalVersity, where our in-house wellness experts break down the latest health trends, new Vital Proteins® products & more.


Three, two, zen! Feeling Zen™ has officially made its debut, adding a calming energy to our product lineup while seamlessly boosting your daily routine with every serving. To kick things off, Lively enlisted the help of our in-house registered dietitian, Jake Kocinski, RD, who's sharing all the details about our latest launch. Keep reading for the full Q&A.

Lively: Feeling Zen™ is out and we’re so pumped about it! What was the thought process behind launching this product?

Jake Kocinski: I’m excited about it, too! There’s been a major shift in how we live our lives, and this unprecedented change is understandably leaving many people feeling stressed and anxious. We developed Feeling Zen™ with an important goal in mind: to help keep you feeling cool, calm and collected throughout the day.** In addition to its plant-based ingredients, Feeling Zen™ is so special because it’s super easy to add to any routine. All you need to do is take two capsules daily, any time of the day.

L: Like you mentioned, Feeling Zen™ also contains some show-stopping (plant-based!) ingredients like ashwagandha and L-theanine. For those who are unfamiliar, can you share what makes them so special?

JK: Of course. L-theanine is an amino acid that’s found naturally in green tea leaves. It’s one of nature’s most effective natural relaxants.** It stimulates the production of alpha brain waves, promoting a state of “relaxed wakefulness” in the process.**

Ashwagandha is an herb classified as an “adaptogen,” meaning it can help your body manage stress while helping to support normal levels of mental clarity, concentration and alertness.** We use a premium, high-quality source —KSM-66® Organic Ashwagandha Root Extract — and offer an impressive serving size (600mg) in Feeling Zen™. It’s produced using the first-of-its-kind extraction process, based on “Green Chemistry” principles, without using alcohol or any other chemical solvents.

These capsules also contain magnesium and GABA, which help support relaxation.** All of these key functional ingredients really do stand out!

L: Amazing. Who do you think would benefit the most from this product?

JK: Feeling Zen™ is great for anyone who is looking for peace of mind.** As always, I do recommend consulting your licensed healthcare professional before adding a supplement to your daily regimen.

L: Lastly, we have to ask: How do you incorporate Feeling Zen™ into your own routine? 

JK: I enjoy adding Feeling Zen™ to my mid-day routine or 30 minutes to an hour before my daily yoga practice. I love how relaxed and at ease it makes me feel right before slipping into a great flow!

Thanks, Jake!
