Review: Sleep better with Rilax Zzz®

The haze is back! and with the smokey air, it's hard to get a decent night's sleep. Personally for me, I feel that it's hard to breathe, and my chest always feels smothered :( These days, instead of getting a restful sleep,I always wake up tired and out of sorts at the start of a new day.

While most of us can function on only a few hours of sleep, it's been ingrained us that we need to have at least 8 hours of uninterrupted sleep a day in order to be fully rested. So why do we need to sleep? For one thing, sleep gives our body a chance to recuperate from the previous day's activities, but really, we have to sleep because it is essential to maintaining normal levels of cognitive skills such as speech, memory, innovative and flexible thinking. In other words, sleep plays a significant role in brain development.

But there are also such thing as good sleep, and bad sleep, and when you wake up from a bad sleep, you feel disoriented, and moody. Much like waking up on the wrong side of the bed, if you will. That's why, Livelife has come up with a product that can help you to sleep better, and that's RilaxZzz®!

Rilax Zzz® is an all-natural supplement for improving sleep quality, especially deep REM sleep - a product of LiveLife BioSciences AG, Switzerland. It offers a safe alternative sleep aid to pharmaceuticals as the ingredients are natural functional ingredients with scientifically proven benefits, safe, no side effects and non-habit forming. Rilax Zzz® works by helping the user to relax, fall asleep and experience a night of deep REM sleep.

Rilax Zzz®z contains two scientifically proven natural ingredients:
- Lactium®, a unique bioactive decapeptide within a milk protein hydrolysate that helps regulate stress cortisol levels, and
- L-Theanine, an amino acid from green tea that has calming properties and increases alpha brainwaves during sleep.

So how do we know that Rilax Zzz® really works? There was a clinical study conducted on Tokyo 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. They published their findings in The Open Sleep Journal (2009:2) showed that Lactium helped a majority of participants to fall asleep faster, as well as significantly improve various aspects of sleep disorders. Results indicated improvement in sleep quality after two weeks of supplementation, along with decreases in sleep latency and daytime dysfunction after four weeks of supplementation.

Rilax Zzz®'s green tea extract contains natural L-Theanine, an amino acid that has documented relaxing effect. It is able to initiate an alpha brain wave pattern that signifies a relaxed physical and mental state without drowsiness or impaired motor skills. 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.

The Rilax Zzz® pack comes with 30 pills, and costs RM108. It also comes with a free contoured sleep mask (worth RM38)

Taken an hour before bedtime, both natural ingredients in Rilax Zzz work synergistically to promote deeper, restful sleep by improving the overall quality and length of sleep.

It is suitable for those experiencing sleep problems due to stress, menopause, old age, jet lag and shift work, and is also convenient for travels.

Rilax Zzz is safe, non-habit forming, have no side effects and does not cause grogginess when you wake up.

Thanks to Livelife, I was given a month's worth of  Rilax Zzz®to try out, and I have to say,  I was a bit skeptical at first, cos I thought that it would be hard to change ones sleep patterns and how can a small pill make me sleep easier. But I was wrong. After a few days of taking the pill, I could actually sense that I was more alert in the day, and I could fall asleep better at night. Though I sometimes still wake up too early, it didn't make me moody and groggy, and I could wake up easier and felt more refreshed. 

Rilax Zzz®usually comes in a 24 pack box (RM89), but I was given the packaging with the free contoured mask, which has 30 pills, and costed RM108

Personally, I would recommend you to take Rilax Zzz® if you have experienced any discomfort in sleeping or if you have insomnia. This will definitely make you sleep better, and I daresay you will wake up feeling better than the night before.

Verdict: 8.5/10

Repurchase: Yes
