Feeling stressed is the main reason why 56% of consumers have trouble sleeping at night (FMCG Gurus, 2022).
For many people, chronic or acute stress can lead to sleep disturbances: difficulty falling asleep, insomnia, night wakings or early awakenings. Because of the disturbed nights, tiredness increases and the stress level does not decrease. These sleep disturbances can reduce our overall quality of life as they can lead to lower productivity, increased accidents at work and affect long-term health (cardiovascular diseases, diabetes, obesity and cancer). It is a vicious circle that leads to concentration difficulties and irritability in both adults and children.

Lactium®, a natural and unique sleep aid

Lactium® is a milk protein hydrolysate that contains a bioactive decapeptide with relaxing properties, a-casozepine. This sleep aid was discovered by Ingredia in collaboration with the University of Nancy and has been helping consumers to better manage their sleep for over 15 years.

This natural bioactive is safe for all family members, including pregnant women and children, and has no side effects (no addiction, no sedation).
People with severe lactose intolerance can consume 7 to 12 g of lactose per day 2. Lactium® contains approximately 0.6% lactose. One 150 mg dose of Lactium® per day corresponds to 0.9 mg of lactose. Lactose intolerant people can therefore consume Lactium® without worrying about possible discomfort. This ingredient is already present in several food supplements and has never been reported.

Action 1: Lactium® reduces stress and improves sleep quality

Thanks to its mechanism of action at the central nervous system level, Lactium® reduces stress-related symptoms (insomnia, nights waking…) and helps you cope with occasional (exams, smoking cessation...) and daily stress (stomach aches, anxiety, loss of appetite...). As a result, Lactium® improves nights and helps people falling asleep. This sleep aid has shown the same effects as molecules acting on the benzodiazepine (BZD) site of the GABAA receptor in the brain.

In order to take care of your health, it is also recommended to have a balanced diet and to practice regular physical activity in parallel with the intake of a food supplement containing Lactium®. Lactium® helps to better manage sleep disorders, the consumer is less psychologically tired and the sleep time is extended, favouring the body's recovery time.

Action 2: Lactium® reduces the action of cortisol

Cortisol, also known as the stress hormone, allows the body to react to a stressful situation. Cortisol also plays a role in the normal functioning of the body and in sleep management. Over a 24-hour cycle, cortisol secretion varies during the day. It is at its highest in the morning and allows the body to wake up full of energy (between 6am and 8am). Cortisol then decreases throughout the day.

When a person is stressed, his cortisol level remains high and impacts the quality of sleep. It causes insomnia or difficulties falling asleep. Lactium®, thanks to its relaxing effects, it’s a sleep aid which reduces the secretion of cortisol and helps you fall asleep. It is an effective solution to improve your health in the long term.
