and an increase in obesity- and stress-related hormones in people of all ages. These issues also contribute to a rising annual national health care cost.
Along with getting regular exercise and having a balanced diet, sleep makes up the third component of the ‘healthy body’ trifecta. While it is a general recommendation that we get 8 hours of sleep daily, getting “quality” sleep not only refers to logging in the minimum amount of sleep every night, but also how soundly we sleep. There are many bodily and mental benefits that we reap from a healthy sleep pattern; such as enabling organ regeneration, improving learning and emotional and social functioning when awake, as well as even contributing to factors that will make you live longer!
With over 2 million capsules sold, Rilax Zzz is Malaysia’s leading sleep supplement. Each capsule contains 150mg of milk protein hydrolysate or better known as Lactium, a naturally-occurring peptide found in milk protein that has relaxing and calming properties; and 50mg of L – Theanine, an amino acid found naturally in green tea leaves that promotes an alert state of relaxation without drowsiness.
Among the many scientific studies conducted on Lactium, one clinical study conducted in Tokyo and published in The Open Sleep Journal in 2009 showed the most impressive results. The study performed on 32 subjects with insomnia by a team of scientists from the Sleep Centre University Hospital of Geneva (Switzerland), the Laboratoire de NeuroSciences Comportementales (France) and the Ashikaga Institute of Technology (Japan), showed that Lactium helped a majority of participants to fall asleep faster, as well as significantly improve various aspects of sleep disorders.
L-theanine on the other hand showed an ability to initiate an alpha brain wave pattern that signifies a relaxed physical and mental state without drowsiness or impaired motor skills. The studies also confirmed that this ingredient improves the quality of sleep by allowing our mind to fully relax and recuperate. Subjects in the studies did not report feeling groggy and felt refreshed and alert upon waking.
