PETALING JAYA, 14 APRIL 2020
Sleep is probably one of the most valued commodities for our healthcare workers now serving in our public healthcare facilities in the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic. Tiredness and a lack of sleep are among issues faced by our healthcare workers especially front liners who are putting in the extra hours on a daily basis.
To help our national heroes sleep better after their shifts, Livelife Sdn Bhd is sponsoring 400 boxes of Rilax sleep supplements for healthcare workers battling the COVID-19 pandemic at public healthcare facilities at Hospital Sungai Buloh and University Malaya Medical Centre.
We are indeed delighted to sponsor our Rilax sleep supplements to our heroes fighting this pandemic. Our healthcare workers are sacrificing time with family, friends and not forgetting hours of sleep to attend to the high numbers in patient arrivals during this time. We can only imagine the stressful time they are going through” says Aileen Chan, Chief Operating Officer of LiveLife Sdn Bhd.
“It is a time for all Malaysians to look out for each other and help where we can. Our healthcare workers are working around the clock battling this unseen enemy. It can be tiring being up on your feet for long hours and extremely hot under the Personal Protective Equipment (PPE).”
“We are indeed touched by their sacrifice and service for the nation. They do deserve a good rest after their long shifts,” added Aileen Chan.
Rilax has been in the Malaysian market since 2007 and is available at major pharmacies such as Caring, Healthlane, AA, BIG, AEON Wellness, Tigas Alliance, Georgetown and other independent pharmacies throughout Malaysia, as well as on major online marketplaces such as Shopee and Lazada.
Petaling Jaya, 16 March 2014 – Shoppers were caught by surprise when a ‘sleep mob’ gathered at a major shopping mall to take a public nap in the middle of a busy afternoon. Hosted by leading and best-selling brand of all-natural sleep supplement Rilax Zzz®, the event was held to promote awareness on healthy sleep.
The ‘sleep mobbers’ – donned in pyjamas, nighties, bedroom slippers and carrying around pillows, blankets and teddy bears – started appearing from various parts of the crowded mall to assemble at the Ground Floor Promenade of 1Utama Shopping Centre, where everyone got together and promptly took a nap! While dressed in their bedroom best, mobbers took the opportunity to spread some awareness on healthy sleep with fascinating ‘sleep facts’ printed on handheld signs: “Did you know? Not getting enough sleep can make you gain weight!” read one sign, while another stated “Did you know? Getting enough sleep can help make your learning more efficient!”
It was a pyjama party like no other, as around 60 mobbers yawned and stretched themselves into various sleeping positions while curious onlookers whipped out their smartphones to snap a few photos. Made up of families, friends, teenagers, young adults, children and even senior citizens, the sleep mob was a true 1Malaysia get together with participants of various backgrounds aged between 5 to 73 years old!
Held in conjunction with World Sleep Day 2014 organised by the World Association of Sleep Medicine, Malaysia’s 1st Sleep Mob was organized by LiveLife Sdn Bhd, distributor of Rilax Zzz. “We wanted to celebrate World Sleep Day on a larger scale this year, and we decided on a fresh take on the usual ‘flash mob’ concept. In preparing and researching for this event, we learned that getting quality sleep is really a problem among Malaysians, especially those with busy schedules and living in urban areas. We want to spread awareness about the fact that getting regular healthy sleep can do wonders for your overall health, and is as important as other health factors such as diet and exercise,” said Aileen Chan, CEO of LiveLife Sdn Bhd.
As for the mobbers, it was equally informational as it was enjoyable, and appeared to be the first time many of them ever participated in such a public event. “I’ve always wanted to take part in a ‘flash mob’, but I couldn’t commit to dance practice sessions. This ‘sleep mob’ was a fun way to spend time with friends and we learned a lot. I always knew that sleep was important, but it was good to be reminded,” said 27-year old Sales Executive from Kuala Lumpur, Hana Amira who participated with friends.
Mobbers also uploaded pictures of themselves in their sleepwear to social media channels with the hashtags #MYFirstSleepMob and #WorldSleepDay2014. Prizes were later awarded to mobbers who earned themselves titles such as “Best Dressed Sleeper” and “Most Creative Sleeping Position”.
Malaysia’s 1st Sleep Mob, presented by Rilax Zzz was supported by venue partner 1Utama Shopping Centre. With over 2 million capsules sold, Rilax Zzz is Malaysia’s award-winning, best-selling all-natural sleep supplement developed by LiveLife Bio Sciences AG, Switzerland; and can be purchased at all leading pharmacies as well as via www.plincco.com.

In order to sleep better, you must first get to know your sleep habits. We at Rilax advocate a good night’s sleep, and most importantly we advocate healthy sleep habits that are natural and sustainable.
A good night’s sleep could be just a pillow-pat away, and sleep journaling is the best first step we could make towards getting better sleep!
HOW IT WILL WORK:
Send us your name, age, email address and number to let us know you are interested to participate.
We will get in touch with you, and send you a template of our Sleep Journal to help you track your sleep habits.
- It will only take you a few minutes to answer a few easy questions before bed and when you wake up in the morning, easy-peasy!
- It’s important that you live your life as normal as possible, and that you don’t change your daily sleep routine while participating in the journal. The objective of this project is simply to observe the sleep habits of different people, and how daily habits affect sleep quality.
At the end of 2 weeks, we will gather the info you have kindly shared with us, and let you know of any key and interesting findings!
We’ll even throw in a few samples of our award-winning, all-natural sleep supplement Rilax for you to try.
If you’ve ever wanted to improve your sleep habits, there’s no time like the present! Join us as a ‘Sleep Journalist’ and let’s talk about sleep!
When it comes to being healthy, there is a lot of talk about diet and exercise, but not as much about sleep. What is really the third pillar of our health is often taken for granted, but the truth is our sleep contributes directly and indirectly to all our other functioning including work or study performance, as well as diet and exercise itself.
Kuala Lumpur, 16 March 2012 – Rilax Zzz, Malaysia’s leading natural sleep supplement, will give away 1000 packs of Rilax Zzz (worth a total of RM23,000) during the month of March in celebration of World Sleep Day.
World Sleep Day (WSD) which falls on16 March 2012, is an annual event organized by the World Sleep Day committee of the World Association of Sleep Medicine (WASM). Held for the fifth year, this event is intended to raise awareness of the importance of sleep for better health. It also aims to lessen the burden of sleep problems on society through better prevention and management of sleep disorders.
“LiveLife is delighted to be supporting World Sleep Day again this year, as we see its synergy with Rilax Zzz in promoting the health benefits of a good night’s sleep. Sleep is as important as a healthy lifestyle as diet and exercise, but quite simply, many of us are not getting enough hours or getting enough quality sleep due to our hectic lifestyle. Many who have difficulty in this nocturnal activity resort to taking prescribed sleeping pills which can be dangerous when taken for the long haul,” said Aileen Chan, Chief Executive Officer of LiveLife Sdn Bhd, the company that distributes Rilax Zzz.
A recent U.S.study suggests that people who take certain sleep medications even once in a while may be up to five times more susceptible to early death. The drugs are also linked with a significantly increased risk of cancer among people taking high dosages. The findings, published in last month’s issue of the journal BMJ Open, an open-access journal that is part of the British Medical Journal family of publications, show the importance of not becoming dependent on sleeping pills such as benzodiazepines, non- benzodiazepines, barbiturates and sedatives. The research has resulted in shockwaves in the health industry around the world and the full study can be viewed at http://bmjopen.bmj.com
A veteran in the natural health industry, Chan explained, “We have a product that really works without the side effects that worry consumers. In conjunction with WSD and as a community service, we are giving away 1000 packs of Rilax Zzz to consumers who want additional aid in getting quality sleep. Classified as food, Rilax Zzz uses natural functional ingredients with scientifically proven benefits – so people can sleep well at night and wake up with energy and passion for life each day. In fact, the steady growth of this second generation sleep supplement’s sales showed that it has helped many to have a good night’s snooze since its launch in December 2009.”
“In a survey that we conducted among 28 pharmacy retailers and 80 consumers, 93% reported that they were satisfied with Rilax Zzz, 97% would take it again and 98% would recommend the sleep product to their friends and family. The top three benefits experienced by the pharmacists and consumers were: falling asleep easier and faster, sleeping right through the night or waking up less frequently and waking up feeling refreshed”, said Chan.
Interested consumers may write in to firstname.lastname@example.org indicating “Rilax Zzz 6s WSD Giveaway”* in the message subject, with their name, IC, address and tel number and say in less than 30 words why they want to try Rilax Zzz.

As a promoter of good sleep, Rilax has joined forces with the World Association of Sleep Medicine (WASM) to celebrate World Sleep Day (WSD) on 18 March 2011. WSD is an annual event, intended to raise awareness of the importance of sleep for better health. It also aims to lessen the burden of sleep problems on society through better prevention and management of sleep disorders. This year’s slogan “Sleep well, grow healthy” emphasizes the promotion of quality sleep for all ages.
Most sleep disorders are preventable or treatable, yet less than a third of sufferers seek professional help. Sleep problems constitute a global epidemic that threatens health and quality of life, for up to 45% of the world’s population.
No one needs to tell you why a good night’s sleep is so important. In fact, we spend up to a third of our lives sleeping. Sleep, the ultimate rejuvenation elixir, is vital for the maintenance and repair of our body and mind. During deep sleep, brain activity that controls emotions, decision-making processes and social interaction shuts down, allowing us to maintain optimal emotional and social functioning when we are awake. This is also the stage when cell growth and cell repair takes place to combat the effects of stress.
Thus, good quality and restorative sleep is essential for optimum day-to-day functioning. Studies suggest that sleep quality rather than quantity has a greater impact on quality of life and daytime functioning.
Lack of sleep or poor quality sleep is known to have a significanat negative impact on our health in the long and short term. Next day effects of a poor quality sleep include a negative impact on our attention span, memory recall and learning. Longer term effects are being studied, but poor quality sleep or sleep deprivation has been associated with significant health problems, such as obesity, diabetes, weakened immune systems and even some cancers.
“LiveLife is delighted to be supporting World Sleep Day this year, as we see its synergy with Rilax in promoting the health benefits of a good night’s sleep. Sleep is as important as a healthy lifestyle as diet and exercise, but quite simply, many of us are not getting enough hours or getting enough quality sleep. Rilax’s all-natural formulation improves sleep quality and supports relaxation, and has helped many to do so since its launch in December 2009,” said Aileen Chan, Chief Executive Officer of LiveLife, the company that distributes this evidence-based supplement.
Rilax’s natural formula helps the user to get a good solid night’s sleep and wake up feeling recharged, renewed and reenergized. It contains two proven and award-winning ingredients, Lactium®, a unique bioactive peptide within a milk protein hydrolysate that has calming properties, and a green tea extract containing L-Theanine that promotes relaxation.
A recent clinical study on Lactium was conducted in Tokyo and published in The Open Sleep Journal in 2009. 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.

- Decrease in sleep latency after four weeks of supplementation.
- Decrease in daytime dysfunction after four weeks of supplementation.
