If you suffer with anxiety, you know it.
We’re not talking about the kind of worry that you feel when preparing to give a presentation or wondering if you packed everything you’ll need for your 2-week trip.
We’re talking about the near constant feeling that something’s just not right, and you can’t relax because you have to figure out what it is and solve it.
Obviously, there are almost as many forms of anxiety as there are people that have it, but they all stem back to the feeling of unease that follows you through daily life.

There are lots of ways to try to overcome it.
Some people do well with talk therapy, some respond best to cognitive behavioral methods.
Some people take SSRIs or other medications prescribed by their doctors.
Some find that none of this helps and makes them feel the way they long to feel.
For this reason, Tranquility Labs offers Tranquilene.
It’s an all natural supplement that works with your body and your brain to offer you a sense of peace and calm that you’ve been unable to sustain until now. This is what they say on their website.
But of course, it’s our job to dig in and determine if there’s any truth to it.
to jump to my personal review of Tranquilene.
Tranquilene Ingredients and How They Work
The formula contains vitamins and minerals as well as a proprietary blend of herbal ingredients, many of which have been shown to improve symptoms of anxiety:
- B-Complex Vitamins which provide the correct environment for the brain to function properly.
The B vitamins can also help the brain produce serotonin which helps you feel positive and confident.
It’s been shown that low levels of Vitamin B can cause anxiety, restlessness, and fatigue.
- L-Theanine which is an amino acid that increases GABA activity to induce relaxation.
- GABA which is a calming neurotransmitter in the brain.
It helps relieve muscle tension and it stimulate the release of dopamine.
Gaba is actually naturally produced in the brain, but often in small and unnoticeable quantities.
- Ashwagandha which relieves anxiety and depression.
- Bocopa which is a mild sedative that relieves temporary emotional stress.
- Tryptophan which fights stress and anxiety by converting into 5-HTP and then to Serotonin, which improves mood.
Yup, the same stuff that you’ll find in your thanksgiving turkey.
- Passion Flower which lowers anxiety levels and promotes a peaceful mind.
- Magnesium which has been shown to have a negative correlation with anxiety.
People with low magnesium levels tend to have more anxiety and depression.
- Niacin which helps the body convert Tryptophan to 5-HTP.
Instructions are to take 1 Tranquilenecapsule in the morning and another at night to maintain even levels of the ingredients in your body throughout the day.
Some customers say they feel relieve immediately (20 to 30 minutes).
But consistent improvement is supposed to be achieved after about 2 or 3 months.
Tranquilene Pros and Cons
Advantages of Tranquilene
- The ingredients are all natural.
- There’s a money back guarantee.
- There are plenty of positive Tranquilene reviews from customers who’ve found it helpful.
Disadvantages of Tranquilene
- The primary complaint is that Tranquilene sort of works, but not as much as many would like.
Where to Buy
If you go to the Tranquilenewebsite, you can buy the product, but only by joining their monthly shipping program.
It’s not shady like those free trial programs that are all over the internet these days.
It’s a straight forward program that you join to have Tranquilene delivered each month for a discounted price of $34.95. If you don’t want to join, you can buy Tranquilene through Amazon for $42.50 for a month’s supply.
My Personal Results With Tranquilene
I’ve never been the anxious type, but like most people I do have days where things seem a bit “edgy” or “off”.
I reserved taking Tranquilene for those days, and I have to say it does seem to live up to its promises.
First off, I definitely do NOT recommend taking this first thing in the morning, at least if you have a decent amount of things to get done throughout the day.
It’s packed with plenty of “sleep inducing” ingredients that will essentially make you want to lay around on the couch all day.
The first time I took it I followed the instructions on the label that said to take 2 capsules daily, and up the dosage by one more capsule if your feeling extra anxious.
Within a couple of hours I felt very calm and relaxed, but also very sleepy.
Even drinking 2 very large cups of coffee didn’t seem to have much of an effect at waking me up.
As far as side effects, I didn’t seem to have any.
I woke up the next morning feeling relatively refreshed, and didn’t have any sort of afterglow or rebound anxiety.
Now, when compared to other stress relievers like Phenibut XT, I don’t think it’s nearly as effective.
For one, while it does contain GABA, it is unable to pass through the blood brain barrier, while Phenibut does.
Second, while it does contain L-Theanine, my guess is it doesn’t contain more then 200 mg of the stuff.
For me, I need about 400mg of L-Theanine to start “feeling it”, so upping the dosage was necessary for me in this case.
I would actually recommend something like this to someone experiencing Phenibut withdrawals.
There are different levels of anxiety and tons of underlying causes.
I believe Tranquilene can help people with mild symptoms feel a bit better.
That seems to be the impression given by most reviews I’ve read, and was confirmed by my own personal test results.
Now, is it a miracle anxiety relief supplement? In my opinion, no.
But, if you’re looking for a great substitute to your nightly cocktail or whatever else you use to take the edge off, then I think Tranquilene would be a great fit.
Just be sure to start off with only one capsule to assess your tolerance, and I only recommend you take it a few hours before bedtime.

Shortness if breath,choking feeling, etc. Been having them since age 14. Over time meds don't have same affect. -Bethann
The nice thing about OTC supplements as opposed to prescription medications is that you can try different options fairly easily without having to go to your doctor to get a new prescription every time. Tranquilene is definitely a good one to try, but a better choice would be Lumiday. Check out my full review here: https://www.supplementcritique.com/lumiday-reviews/- Rob
