It's time for my Relaxium Sleep review, which is a very popular sleep supplement.
So does it work or is it actually a scam?
What about its ingredients, (potential) side effects, complaints and cost?
Honestly, it doesn't seem amazing at first sight:
- lots of complaints from previous users
- tricky pricing
- doesn't promote a healthy sleep
So what's inside Relaxium Sleep and how does it work in reality?
Well, I tried to dig really deep into this product and find out the truth behind it.
Note: This review is based on my opinion + research on Relaxium Sleep.
Full Name: Relaxium Sleep by American Behavioural Research Institute
Product Type: Sleep Supplement
Best Actual Price: Around $90/2 months supply
It's only available with auto-shipping, not with manual purchases (more on this later on).
Cheapest Place To Buy: Its official website
Designed For: Sleep support – it claims to help with:
- falling asleep faster
- relieving stress
- boosting immune support
My Rating: 6 out of 10
Recommended?: No – it's a product you can't fully trust:
- a lot of complaints from previous users
- forces you to sign up for a subscription in order to buy it
- producer is very sketchy
- works by sedating you
So I personally couldn't recommend it in these conditions.
Instead, I advise you to go for a cheaper supplement that works much better (and safer).
What I Liked About It
- Formula is based on natural compounds
- Some of its ingredients are trademarks
- Works pretty well for some users
- Doesn't cause any severe side effects
- Available in a lot of countries
- Many authentic opinions about it (though many are negative)
What I Didn't Like About It
- No contact info available for its producer
- Its brand has no official website
- A lot of serious complaints
- You can only buy it if you sign up for auto-shipping
- Made some users feel sedated
#1 – How It Works & Producer
Let's start with some general things about Relaxium Sleep:
- its exact mechanism of action
- how it works
- who is the company behind it
1. How It Works
What makes Relaxium Sleep stand out is that it's clinically proven.
Or at least that's what it claims.
That's because there isn't any clinical trial or research paper conducted on it – at least I couldn't find any.
Other than that – here's what it promises:
- it's a natural sleep aid
- it was developed by a neurologist/sleep expert
- it's recommended by many celebrities
Now – the fact that many celebrities promote is can be just a marketing trick.
I personally value the recommendations of specialists and professionals a lot more.
However, a couple of experts actually criticize this product.
So all in all – Relaxium Sleep has a few question signs about it.
But judging afters its claims, I personally cannot trust it completely.
2. Company Behind
This product is made by a brand called American Behavioural Research Institute.
However – this company seems quite weird:
- no official website
- no email/phone number available
- its owner isn't the same doctor that founded the brand
Basically – there isn't any clear way to get in touch with this company.
That's why it has some serious question signs about it.
I personally would not buy from this brand, since there's no way to get in touch with them.
#2 – Ingredients (8 out of 10)
I actually like Relaxium's formula – up to a point:
- contains several herbal extracts
- some of its ingredients are trademarks
- has an original composition
Now – to me, Relaxium's formula seems typical for a sleep supplement.
That's because its ingredients tend to work by sedating you.
In terms of effect – you get what you want, as you fall asleep a lot faster.
But in many cases, this type of formula actually makes you feel very tired when you wake up.
And there's more:
- sleep quality isn't the best
- you don't wake up refreshed
- doesn't induce a natural sleep
So I'm personally not a big fan of formulas that sedate people – simply because the results are false positive.
You actually fall asleep a lot faster, but your sleep isn't great and you wake up very tired.
This is why I wouldn't necessarily recommend Relaxium's formula.
But let's take a closer look at its main ingredients.
1. Magnesium (100 mg)
This mineral is very important when it comes to a restful sleep:
- reduces insomnia
- helps you sleep faster
However, the quantity inside Relaxium is a bit high – in my view.
That's because most people get their recommended daily dose through diet.
So an extra 100 mg wouldn't hurt for a while – but what about in the long run?
2. L-Tryptophan (500 mg)
What makes the substance special is that 2 key ingredients for sleep are made from it:
They're both involved in the falling asleep process. 
So this ingredient makes sure your body can make the right amount of these 2 compounds.
3. Valerest® (228.9 mg)
This is actually a Proprietary Blend – which is a mix of 2 ingredients:
- Valerian – one of the best herbal extracts for sleep.
- Hops – helps you fall asleep faster.
Basically, this blend is responsible for making you fall asleep faster.
4. Sensoril® (125 mg)
If you ask me, this is the best ingredient from Relaxium.
Sensoril® is an improved version of Ashwaghanda – which is a herbal extract.
This herb is one of the best when it comes to:
- reducing fatigue 
- improving sleep quality
So in my view, it's the best thing you can find inside this supplement.
5. GABA (100 mg)
Unlike the other ingredients, GABA works best for increasing sleep duration.
In fact – you can find it in lots of depression/anxiety supplements. 
That's because it also has a calming effect (so it can sometimes even sedate you).
6. Chamomile & Passionflower (75 mg)
Both of these herbs have about the same effect:
- reduce stress and anxiety
- promote relaxation
- decrease muscle spasms
None of them have a lot to do with the actual sleeping process.
But they help your body get ready for it.
7. Melatonin (5 mg)
This is a natural hormone produced by our bodies:
- increases sleep quality
- makes you fall asleep faster
However, a high dose of melatonin can make you feel very tired when you wake up.
All in all, Relaxium has a pretty good formula.
However – I wouldn't recommend it for one reason: it can make you feel sedated.
Though it's not a bad supplement at all, it can have this effect on some people.
That's exactly why I'm not a huge fan of its formula.
#3 – Pills & Dosage (9 out of 10)
To be honest, Relaxium looks pretty good at this chapter.
This supplement is formulated as classic vegetable capsules:
- transparent cover with brownish powder inside
- average size
- easy to swallow
Basically – there isn't much to tell about these pills.
They look quite typical for a sleep supplement.
Relaxium also looks good when it comes to how you should take it:
- serving size is 2 pills/day
- you should take both before sleeping
Now, as in any sleep product – you shouldn't take it throughout the day.
Otherwise, you may end up feeling a lot more tired than usual.
But other than that – Relaxium is pretty easy to take.
#4 – Results (6 out of 10)
The best way to see how Relaxium works is by looking at its user feedback.
And even though it's quite mixed, its negative reviews are quite serious.
Note: I only considered authentic reviews, not fake/promotional ones.
1. Positive Opinions
First of all – this product is available on 2 main sellers:
- Its official website
Now, the price on Amazon is indeed higher – but the reviews there are also authentic.
Plus, Relaxium seems to be sold there in its original version – which is perfect.
For this reason, let's take a look at its positive reviews on Amazon:
- Some people say it's great for a faster sleep.
- Others praise its effect on their sleep quality.
- A few others claim they like it because it's not addictive.
All in all – this product has enough positive opinions on Amazon, which means that it's not a scam.
However, it has a surprisingly high number of complaints as well.
2. Negative Opinions
Most of Relaxium's first page reviews on Amazon are extremely negative.
So here's what most people complain about:
- being sedated
- absolutely no results
- shipping issues
However – there are a lot more complaints about this product on websites like BBB:
- Many users claim they were scammed.
- The brand charged their credit card without their consent.
- They were also billed even after cancelling their order.
Now, Relaxium's producer seems to have a couple of issues at this chapter.
Apparently, it's not the most trustworthy/legitimate brand.
Since it has no official website or contact info, that's not very surprising.
So I would advise you to pay attention at this aspect – as there are some chances that you experience a similar problem.
Relaxium has some mixed reviews overall:
- works really well for some people
- it's completely useless for others
However, it also has a lot of complaints from people that claim they were scammed.
Since we're talking about more than 10 reviews of this type, I would advise you to pay attention to it.
So I personally couldn't really recommend it.
#5 – Side Effects (8 out of 10)
Surprisingly or not, Relaxium seems to be a pretty safe supplement:
- very few complaints on side effects
- quite well-tolerated
Now, there are indeed some users complaining about being sedated or feeling tired.
However – these issues are quite common for sleep supplements.
So I wouldn't necessarily call them side effects.
Still, Relaxium does cause this kind of issues.
However – it rarely causes:
- digestive problems and nausea
So from this point of view, it shouldn't make you feel more than tired.
It's true that a few sleep supplements don't even cause this extra fatigue.
But all in all – things could be a lot worse about Relaxium.
#6 – Price (4 out of 10)
Relaxium has indeed some problems at this chapter.
However – it's not about its actual price, which isn't that huge.
It's mostly about its shipping and subscription issues.
1. The Exact Price
As I said – you can buy this supplement on its official website and on Amazon.
Obviously, its Amazon price is a bit higher.
For this reason – its official page remains the best option.
Now, its pricing is a bit unusual (and quite tricky):
- First bottle is a 14 days free trial bottle.
- You only have to pay for its shipping ($7.95).
- However, 17 days after you're automatically sent a 2 months supply.
- Its price is $89.98.
- This subscription goes on every 2 months (at the same price).
- If you request the free trial bottle, you're automatically put on this subscription.
In other words – you can't buy this product manually (which is normal).
Instead, you can only get it through a 2 months subscription.
Honestly, this is a strategy a lot of low-quality brands/products use:
- people would not buy them again normally
- some users forget to cancel their subscription
- others do cancel it, but they still get charged money
Now – there are a lot of previous users complaining about Relaxium's strategy.
Many claim they canceled their order – but they still got charged in the next months.
Others even say they couldn't cancel their order, despite trying to do it.
So I always advise you to avoid products that require a subscription.
If they had a high-quality, why would they force you to subscribe?
Honestly, that's the best proofs that they have a scam potential.
2. Competitors' Price
I only want to compare Relaxium with my #1 alternative.
I'm talking about a supplement called Sleep Support Plus:
- Both products have some great formulas.
- Sleep Support Plus's composition is slightly better.
- It also has a unique mechanism of action.
- It works by increasing natural melatonin production.
- For this reason, it has no sedating effect.
- Relaxium is a typical sleep supplement, so it can make you feel very tired after waking up.
- Relaxium costs around $90 (f0r 2 bottles).
- Sleep Support Plus costs $30/bottle normally.
- However, in the best case you can get it for about $19/bottle.
Now, Sleep Support Plus has a better composition, but it also costs less.
Plus – its effect is also much better and safer.
Besides, you're not placed on any auto-shipping.
So you're free to buy the product whenever you want (without being charged without your consent).
And most importantly, it promotes a much better and more natural sleep.
These are some major reasons why it's much better than Relaxium.
Relaxium isn't the priciest supplement out there (even though it's not cheap).
But you can only buy it if you sign up for a 2 months auto-shipping.
Considering there are so many complaints about being scammed, I wouldn't advise you to do this.
Better go for a supplement that costs a lot less and it can be bought manually.
#7 – Final Conclusions
Here's how I would summarize my view on Relaxium (in 3 ideas).
1. Questionable Brand
Even though the product looks pretty good – its brand doesn't:
- no official website
- no contact details available
- founder isn't the same as current owner
- very little info about people behind it
So I personally would not buy from a company like this one.
It simply doesn't seem right to me.
2. Only Bought With Subscription
As I said – you can't buy Relaxium as a regular product:
- you have to sign up for a subscription
- in theory, you can cancel it anytime
- in reality, that doesn't always happen
I said it before – I don't usually recommend supplements that require you to subscribe.
If they are legit, they would allow you to buy their products manually (and subscribe only if you want).
That's why I'm very reluctant about this product.
3. Scam Potential
Honestly, Relaxium doesn't seem the most legitimate product out there.
It does work for a lot of people – but there are even more complaining about it.
So from this point of view, I wouldn't really recommend it.
Why risk your hard-earned money for a product that might actually scam you?
My Verdict – Worth Or Not?
Short answer: Not really – simply because I cannot trust it:
- Questionable brand with no website/contact details
- A lot of complaints from its previous users
- Didn't work for a lot of people
- You're forced to sign up for a subscription
Now – Relaxium surely has its own good points as well.
That's why I can't consider it a scam, since it does work for some people.
However, its complaints are too serious (and numerous) to ignore.
So I personally wouldn't buy Relaxium – and I can't advise you to do it either.
What would I go for instead?
Well, I told you about the #1 sleep supplement I looked into – Sleep Support Plus:
- works through an unique mechanism of action
- doesn't sedate you (nor causes any side effects)
- it's extremely affordable
So if you want the best product for a safe (and high-quality sleep), that's the alternative I recommend you.
And trust me, it's better to spend your money wisely than go for a product like Relaxium.
