Alpha S1-Casein Tryptic Hydrolysate (Lactium®) is a bioactive peptide extracted from the milk of only the Holstein breed in France. These cows are specially reared and the milking is done only at night. The milk bioactive peptide has an affinity for GABA-A receptors. It increases the activity of GABA which is a neurotransmitter known for its inhibitory action on anxiety and for its relaxing properties. The milk bioactive peptide induces relaxation, improves sleep, promotes slow delta brain waves leading to deep restorative sleep. Its anti-stress properties were shown in improvements on stress markers, including cortisol, heart rate, and blood pressure, and on psychological symptoms such as depression. Alpha S1 Casein Tryptic Hydrolysate is classified by FDA as GRAS (Generally Recognized as Safe).
L-Theanine (Suntheanine®) is an amino acid naturally found abundant in green tea leaves. Extensive studies and increasing evidence show that L-theanine enhance sleep quality and efficiency. L-theanine promotes sleep via a subtle anxiolytic effect, altering levels of neurotransmitters and enhancing alpha brain waves. In addition, supplementation does not promote drowsiness, cause dependence, or lead to adverse reactions. It produces a minor anxiolytic effect to the extent that stress is reduced and concentration improves. A study at Oxford University used EEG to show that L-theanine significantly increases alpha brain waves. The presence of alpha waves is an indication that L-theanine relaxes the mind without inducing drowsiness. There are many benefits associated with L-theanine supplementation including anxiety reduction, cognitive enhancement, sleep quality improvement, and increased subjective well-being. FDA has granted L-theanine GRAS status.

Each active ingredient have studies demonstrating their impact on stress and sleep. In addition to that, there are also studies that support positive impact on blood pressure and cardiovascular health, as well as on psychological health such as depression and mood improvements. Rilax has demonstrated that the active ingredients are more effective in improving sleep quality and promoting relaxation when they are combined together in our proprietary formula.
