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:

Step 1:
Send us your name, age, email address and number to let us know you are interested to participate.

Step 2:
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.

Step 3:
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!

1000 Packs of Rilax Giveaway for World Sleep Day 2012

1000 packs rilax giveaway
1000 packs of Rilax Zzz 6 capsules worth RM23!

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 [email protected] 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. The first 1000 qualifying participants in Malaysia will be entitled to a pack of Rilax Zzz 6 capsules which they can collect at a designated local pharmacy.

Rilax Celeberates World Sleep Day

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.

Results indicated:
  • Improvement in sleep quality after two weeks of supplementation.
  • Decrease in sleep latency after four weeks of supplementation.
  • Decrease in daytime dysfunction after four weeks of supplementation.
Sleep quality is further improved with L-theanine, an amino acid found naturally in green tea leaves, that promotes an alert state of relaxation without lapsing into drowsiness. It is able 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. It was recorded that after continuous daily intake for two weeks, the subjects in the studies returned to good sleeping pathways as well. Taken an hour before bedtime, Rilax’s all natural ingredients work well to improve sleep quality, particularly those that are stress-related; are safe, non-habit forming, have no side effects and does not cause grogginess when you wake up. For more information, ask your nearest pharmacist.
