Rilax is a natural sleep supplement that improves sleep quality and promotes relaxation so that the user will get the healthy and restorative sleep his body needs.
Rilax contains two active ingredients:
- Alpha S1-Casein Tryptic Hydrolysate, a bioactive peptide extracted from the raw, pure and high quality milk of only the Holstein breed in France. Reared in family-sized farms, these cows do not experience the inhumanity of industrial livestock farming. They live in decent conditions which are compatible with animal welfare. Their natural feedstuff is derived mainly from the farm.
- L-Theanine, an amino-acid derived from green tea leaves (Camellia sinensis). Traditionally, drinking green tea is enjoyed by some Asian cultures and know to help with relaxation.
Rilax combines the relaxing properties of two safe ingredients scientifically proven to promote relaxation and restful sleep.
Because Alpha S1-Casein Tryptic Hydrolysate has a high and selective affinity for some receptors in the brain called GABA-A receptors, it stimulates the activity of Gamma-Amino Butyric Acid (GABA), a neuro-transmitter known to inhibit anxiety and the stress response in the brain. This mechanism of action therefore results in Alpha S1-Casein Tryptic Hydrolysate’s relaxing properties. It has no side-effects, is not addictive and is hypoallergenic. Unlike benzodiazepines, Alpha S1-Casein Tryptic Hydrolysate does not have any toxic effect on the body and does not create any addiction, even at a high doses. It therefore acts effectively and naturally.
The amino acid stimulates the mind to produce alpha brain waves, the sign you’re deeply relaxed, and yet allows the brain to remain mentally alert. It also aids in the creation of GABA, gamma amino butyric acid, an inhibitory neurotransmitter responsible for influencing the levels of dopamine and serotonin. L-theanine has also been shown to reduce blood pressure in an animal model of hypertension. Further, it dampens the excitatory effects of caffeine, as measured by EEG and blood pressure.
At the end of the 80’s, researchers have wondered about the origin of the calm state of babies after drinking milk. They hypothesized that a milk constituent could explain this soothing effect. Through many years of research, they succeeded in identifying a bio-peptide present in milk protein with natural relaxing properties.
No. At first, the decapeptide is not present by itself in milk and is encrypted in Alpha S1-Casein Tryptic Hydrolysate. It could be released in neonates but not in adults. The enzymatic system in adults is indeed much more complex and cannot allow the quantitative delivery of this specific sequence from the protein.
