Looks like the sleepy sister of energy drinks, relaxation drinks, may not be any better for you: new reports say that the Bob Marley relaxation drink, "Marley's Mellow Mood," was removed from schools in New Jersey. 

Students at Satz Middle School and Holmdel High School were sickened by the drink, which prompted the drink's removal from the Chartwells School Dining Services. "We sincerely regret that this product was sold and that students had an adverse reaction to it," the statement from Chartwell read. 

The drink's nutrition facts state that the drink is not intended for children, and may promote drowsiness. Among the drink's ingredients: valerian root (which helps fight insomnia), lemon balm, chamomile, and hops. There might be a need to take caution when sipping relaxation drinks after this news.
