Adequate Sleep


Every brain needs sleep to process and settle the events of the day. Sleep helps us cope with the challenges we face, especially anxiety and stress. When we have the proper amount of sleep, our minds can be clear and calm.

Sleep and Attention Issues Are Connected


A British research study found that three times as many children with issues focusing have difficulty falling or staying asleep. Mainly children with attention challenges have trouble "settling down" at the end of the day, affecting their ability to get proper rest.

While adults get sluggish when they're overtired, children actually speed up, exhibiting symptoms such as: focus issues and behavioral issues. Lack of sleep can affect all aspects of a child's life, from health and education to relationships and well-being. The good news is that an Australian study found that kids with attention challenges who were given behavioral sleep interventions actually showed an improvement in their symptoms.

Well-Rested Kids are Healthier Kids


Children who don't get adequate sleep are 3-to-5 times more likely to develop attention issues, they're more likely to have behavior problems and struggle with obesity. Well-rested children have the advantage of better physical health as well as reduced risk of developing learning and behavior problems.

Set a bedroom ambiance that will help your child relax


Dinner time should be a few hours before bedtime (a full tummy can affect sleep)

Really works: One of my friends recommended Brillia to me. Like my child, hers was often irritable and overly excited. After taking Brillia, she said her daughter became calm and more at ease. My child was extremely bouncy and hyperactive. At age three, she had a bad temper, anger issues, and outbursts—with or without reason. It was so difficult to manage. It felt like anything could lead to an outburst. After taking Brillia (I barely noticed how quickly it happened) her outbursts and anger subsided. My child feels so much better. It was obvious that she was suffering, but now everything has changed. I strongly recommend this product to moms. It simply changed our life.

I feel like my life has started again: My son is currently 5 years old. He has always been a very hyperactive and irritable child. He had anxiety and sleep disturbances and wanted to be held constantly. If we put him down for even a few minutes, he started to cry until we’d pick him up again. It was so hard to keep him interested. He was always on the move, and screamed and needed full attention at all times, and if he didn’t get it, he would scream louder. I couldn’t do anything and felt so tired. From his very first days, it felt like I wasn’t really living any longer— just existing. We tried several medications, but they all had so many negative side effects. Some even caused a delay in his speech and reactions, which worried me a lot. After consulting with our pediatrician, we started Brillia. At first I was nervous to give it to our son, but I was feeling so lost I needed to find a solution, so we gave it a shot. Now this is the third week we are taking it and the effect is so positive. He is calmer, and is engaging more like other children his age. Things that would have easily caused him to act out or cry in the past, don’t impact him the same way anymore. I feel so much better. He hasn’t slowed down, but is more peaceful and kinder to others. He sleeps better at night, doesn’t wake up in the middle of the night (before he could wake up every thirty minutes). I’m so very grateful to have found Brillia. Mine have tried it as well, and some have given it to their children and it helped them as well. So I highly recommend it.

Great solution for nervous and excitable children: My son is a first grader and was shy and nervous in all situations. He also often suffered from headaches and cried a lot. First grade created a lot of pressure for him. New school, new kids, new teacher—it was a lot to take on. A child psychologist was helping us with his adjustment, and recommended Brillia for children. It worked wonderfully. Brillia helped my child to become calm, helped with his stress, and helped him focus. Unlike other medicines in this category, it didn’t make him drowsy or sluggish. We started it about 3 weeks before school began. We didn’t notice the impact right away, but slowly his sleep has changed. He is now sleeping restfully. We can talk to him about school and he has a positive outlook, no stress, less fears. He has made friends. Problems exist, but he doesn’t make a tragedy out of them. We are not taking Brillia right now as our course has finished. Fortunately I don’t see any deterioration and we are trying to stick to the program during our off month. We’re so happy with our experience with Brillia.

It works amazing: At the age of two, our son’s neurologist told us that our child has attention and focus issues and recommended Brillia. To be honest, we were really afraid of the diagnosis and the fact that he had to take medicine at that age. After online researches and consultations with two other specialists, we found out that actually it’s a very common problem and many children have the same diagnosis these days. We also knew that between the age of 2 and 3 kids are still rapidly developing, and weren’t convinced that at this age giving medicine was necessary, so we refused to do it. Finally one of our friends, a respected specialist, persuaded us that as Brillia is a homeopathic product it won’t do any harm to our child. It is designed to help children be calmer, fight the stress, and improve their focus. He recommended to take it a few months before going into childcare. Eventually we bought it. Our son likes how it tastes. It’s sweet. We dissolve it in a spoon of water. It’s been two months since we started to take it. The effect is really tangible. He is calmer. He reacts less dramatically if he doesn’t get what he wants. But I want to warn you, don’t think that all your problems will disappear immediately and your child will become obedient and will start to act as a well-behaved kid all the time. Have patience. You’ll see the result. Don’t forget it works slower, but doesn’t harm your child.

Effective: I started to notice strange changes in myself. I found I felt I had to rotate something in my hands or constantly shake my legs. I could easily start a fight or have outbursts because of some inconsequential issue. I was nervous and very irritable. Finally I visited a therapist and he recommended Brillia. After reading all the positive online reviews, I decided to try it out. After two months I started to notice improvements. I wasn’t nervous anymore and I just felt calmer. Since I’ve started, I’ve heard that other friends of mine have tried it as well, and some have given it to their children and it helped them as well. So I highly recommend it.

Great product: I started to take Brilla after my friend recommended it to me. I was so overloaded with school work and had no time to rest. My level of stress was so high and it affected my mood, my sleep, my grades and my health. After one month, I started to feel results. Less stress and better sleep. Fortunately I am able to focus better and do more. Couldn’t wish for more.

Simply—it works: My child was extremely difficult to manage. He didn’t want to get ready for school in the mornings. If he didn’t like something, he would lie down and cry hysterically. He just couldn’t control his emotions. I ended up buying Brillia. My son took it for just one month and feels much better. He’s better behaved and doesn’t have emotional outbursts as much any longer. I am so relieved!

It was such a relief to find Brillia for my child. He hasn’t had any side effect, it doesn’t make him drowsy, and my husband and I have noticed a remarked improvement in his calm and focus.

Brillia has been a life saver for me and my child, and our family … I find it’s especially effective together with magnesium and vitamin B6 supplements.

Since my daughter’s been taking Brillia, she has much better control over her emotions and concentration. The move to high school with a bigger campus and new students was very stressful for her, and made her even more anxious. Brillia helped ease the process and the transition. It has also helped her focus in her classes and get better grades.
