I can never seem to switch off…


We’re told all the time. But it’s always easier said than done, right? What with all our lives being so busy these days, and so many things to think about during the course of the day, it can be hard to properly switch off and get the rest and relaxation we all need and deserve. 

That’s why we created The Relax Capsules. Say goodbye to feelings of stress and anxiety, and hello to total zen. Whether you need some help separating work from your personal life, or getting a great night’s sleep, The Relax Capsules can help you achieve it. Because everyone needs a little ‘me’ time.

Will The Relax Capsules help my sleep?

The Relax Capsules contain a number of ingredients that relax the body and mind, as well as regulating your sleep cycle - so yes! Just be sure to take them daily as recommended to maximise the results.

Can I take them when pregnant?

As with all nutritional supplements, it’s always best to speak with your doctor first if you're pregnant or breastfeeding as they’ll have more knowledge on your individual circumstances.

Are The Relax Capsules vegan?

Yes, all of our capsules are vegan. They’re also free of GMO, and contain no fillers, bulking agents or artificial colours. What you see is what you get!

Why should I believe this product will work?

All our products have been formulated by expert nutritionists using science-backed research supported by peer-reviewed clinical trials. You can read some of these clinical studies by clicking here. Our products work because we focus on the following things above all else - the ingredients we use, the quality of these ingredients, their concentrations and how well they're absorbed by your body. Our unwavering commitment to that approach means what you get are the highest quality, cleanest supplements in the world today - without any BS.

The closest you'll get to an actual chill pill. Easing anxiety with the use of cortisol-reducing L-Theanine and Lion’s Mane Mushroom, which is incidentally also believed to boost learning and mood, it also calls on a range of other ingredients incluiding 5-HTP to help you get a better night's sleep.

Science over hype

With so many “miracle” ingredients being touted out there, it can be hard to know what really works. We believe evidence-based ingredients are the best way to better health. With decades of clinical studies behind these active ingredients showing how they can help reduce stress and anxiety, and improve your quality of sleep, we're confident that you’ll thank us later.

Per 2 Capsules:

Lion’s Mane Mushroom

Lion’s Mane Mushroom (350mg): White fungi that have long, shaggy spines. Research suggests that they may offer a range of health benefits, including reduced inflammation and improved cognitive and heart health. References > 1, 2.



L-Glycine (250mg): An important amino acid and a neurotransmitter, glycine helps increase serotonin levels, which is required to make the sleep hormone melatonin. Can help reduce symptoms of insomnia, restore healthy sleep patterns, and encourage deeper, more restful and refreshing sleep. References > 3, 4.



Ashwagandha (200mg): One of the most powerful and revered adaptogenic herbs in Ayurvedic medicine, Ashwagandha is well-known for its restorative and rejuvenating benefits.

Valerian Root

Valerian Root (100mg): This medicinal herbal has been used since ancient times to reduce the symptoms of anxiety and for the relief of sleep disturbances.

Why it's special

Amino Acids

L-theanine and L-glycine are both amino acids, which are organic compounds that assist with a variety of functions within the body. L-theanine has been proven to promote relaxation, regulate sleep patterns and boost the immune system, while L-glycine improves the quality of sleep, protects the heart and reduces the feeling of stress within the body.


Ashwagandha, lion’s mane mushroom and valerian root are all substances derived from plants. Ashwagandha is known for its restorative and rejuvenating benefits, while valerian root and lion’s mane mushroom have been shown to reduce the symptoms of anxiety. These plant-based ingredients are helpful when it comes to sleep hygiene.

Functional Ingredients

5-HTP is an amino acid that assists in the production of serotonin. This increased production can help ease symptoms of anxiety, depression and sleep disorders. 5-HTP can also increase the amount of melatonin within the body, which helps regulate sleep.

When should I use the product?

The Recover Capsules after your workout or before bed.
The Focus Capsules when you wake up in the morning.
The Tone Capsules with your breakfast or lunch.
The Digest Capsules before your main meal of the day.

How many servings do I get?

Each of our capsule products contain 60 capsules. We recommend that you take 2 capsules a day. So each product will last you exactly 30 days.

Can I mix and match products?

Yes, absolutely. We developed all our products so that you can mix and match any of them depending on your individual goals and needs. You will get the benefits of each of them regardless of whether you're taking them alone or with any of our other products.

What sort of testing do you do?

We go over and above to ensure you get the best quality and safest products possible. We only use ingredients that have a visible supply chain, and our manufacturing facilities are approved to the highest regulatory standards. Once we receive ingredients, we batch test every single one before it gets approval to go into the manufacturing process. That isn’t technically an official requirement but it’s something that we think should be.

They work

Got them for my girlfriend and they really help her to sleep during a stressful period

No hangover feeling

I've been taking these for about a week now just before I go to bed and I have noticed that I am sleeping much better and not feeling so tired in the morning. I would highly recommend these as they do not leave you feeling like you have a hangover.

Ruaidhri Archbold
Great effect!

Coming home from late night shifts, I generally struggle to settle down for sleep. However, if I take as I finish my shift, then by the time I've walked home I'm ready for bed!

Rodney Prescott

That's great to hear Rodney! Thank you.
