World Suicide Prevention Day

World Suicide Prevention Day

Suicide is one of the top 20 leading causes of death globally for people of all ages, accounting to over 800,000 deaths every year.

World Suicide Prevention Day, organised by the International Association for Suicide Prevention (IASP) was created to promote awareness on suicide, mental illnesses associated with suicide as well as suicide prevention; on the 10th of September, every year. This day provides worldwide commitment and action to prevent suicides, with various activities around the world since 2003. Speaking up about mental illnesses and suicide is important as this can increase awareness and reduce stigma on mental illnesses.

The mediate cause of suicide might be the loss of relational, social, work, or financial issues but one of the major causes comes from lack of social connections where they may perceive themselves as an outcast or a burden to others.

Warning signs of a suicidal individual include uncontrolled anger, feeling trapped like there is no way out, social withdrawal from friends, family and society, anxiety, difficulty in falling asleep or over sleeping and dramatic mood changes. However, there is no clear indication on identifying one’s intention of suicide.

People are often reluctant to intervene in fear of not knowing what to say in such situations. Just like how the quote goes

We will never truly understand how they feel unless we are going through it ourselves. However, empathy, compassion, genuine concern, knowledge of resources and a desire to help can be keys to preventing a tragedy.

At Truelifesciences, we strive to boost one’s physical performance and at the same time, the mental health. Calmz™ is a clinically proven alternative remedy for individuals with anxiety disorder; struggling with insomnia, dramatic mood changes, fatigue, headaches and forgetfulness.

AVtron™, the main active ingredient in Calmz™ reduces the secretion of chromogranin A (a stress maker), working in synergy with GABA and increases the serotonin levels of the body, thereby boosting mood. AVtron™ is derived from Apocynum venetum leaves, a shrub of the dogbane family growing in mid-to-northwestern regions of China which contains consistent levels of 4 bioactive flavonoids, including hyperoside, isoquercitrin, kaempferol and quercetin.

Aside from the main active ingredient, Calmz™ also contains tart cherry which is beneficial in regulating the body’s bio clock as it contains melatonin; collagen tripeptide where glycine- the main amino acid in collagen is found to improve sleep quality, lessen daytime sleepiness and improve performance of memory recognition tasks; vitamin C acts in maintaining normal levels of antioxidants in the brain which ensures the ability of blood vessels to relax and constrict for proper brain function and prevent memory impairment.

Keep Calmz™ and take 1 sachet per day, one hour before bedtime.
