Meet Calmz: A New Sleep Solution

Sleep time is precious time

Insufficient sleep is one of the leading causes of many chronic health problems. It has been linked with high blood pressure, diabetes, stroke, obesity, depression and more. Furthermore, lack of sleep also impacts one’s mood, temper, and mental stability. A person’s long-term and short-term memory is also thought to be negatively impacted by sleep deprivation and in turn, this can also trickle down to cause troubles with thinking and concentration.

Most adults need seven to nine hours of sleep to function at an optimum level. Yet, many are experiencing difficulties to meet the recommended hours of sleep due to myriad reasons ranging from anxiety to caffeine addiction and more.

Insomnia and other sleep issues are experienced by 9 out of 10 Malaysians, according to a study published in the Asian Journal of Medicine and Health Sciences. Approximately 35 percent also have a sleep disorder with more than 53 percent of Malaysia’s workforce getting less than the minimum seven hours of sleep in a 24-hour period.

If the sleep crisis continues to persist, this can ultimately lead to a nationwide health concern as insufficient sleep has been scientifically linked to an array of challenges both, physical and mental.

To help provide a solution for the sleep crisis, Wellesta Truelife unveils a new product called Calmz which aims to promote a safe treatment for insomnia and Generalised anxiety disorder (GAD).

Meet Calmz

Calmz contains two main ingredients which work in synergy to help reduce daytime sleepiness by promoting alertness. It also aids in regulating the body clock by encouraging deep sleep. This in turn helps calm the brain by regulating anxiety and stress. Hence, the inspiration behind the name of the product. These synergistic effects are clinically proven to be effective for sleep and GAD.

Calmz is soon to hit the shelves of selected independent pharmacies.

What’s in Calmz?

The two main ingredients that can be found in Calmz are Apocynum Venetum leaves extract and Ashwagandha root extract.

Apocynum Venetum leaves are a shrub of the Dogbane family, native to China’s mid to northwestern region. Apocynum Venetum extract helps to increase serotonin levels, thereby boosting mood.

Ashwagandha root extract, also known as Withania Somnifera is a popular ingredient in modern-day supplements and it’s also acclaimed in Ayurvedic medicine. Uses of Ashwagandha range from nootropics to natural adaptogens and more.

Who should consider Calmz? 

Calmz is suitable for the following groups (but not limited to):

  • People with anxiety
  • Premenstrual syndrome
  • Menopausal symptoms
  • Mood disorders
  • Poor sleep
  • Acute and chronic insomnia

What’s the expert’s take on Calmz?

Farik Abdul Rahman, an experienced pharmacist and Training Director from Wellesta Truelife is one of the brains behind the formulation of Calmz. When asked how the product stands out in the market, Farik highlighted an interesting point.

“Calmz contains properties derived from natural ingredients. It also has adaptogenic effects where it helps the body to adapt to the behaviour of the consumers. For example, if you’re stressed, it will help lower your stress levels. If you’re depressed, it’ll help boost your serotonin levels,” said Farik.
