Do you struggle falling asleep or staying asleep? Do you wish you woke up refreshed and full of energy? Could you do with a bit more focus or productivity? You are not alone – 1 in 3 people suffer with insomnia in the UK (NHS Inform, 2020) and productivity in the UK is at an all-time low (McKinsey, 2018) likely due to our high-paced, digitally focused lives. More people are turning to supplements to help with sleep, anxiety, stress and focus but with so many products on the market, which should you pick? Today we are introducing Motion Nutrition’s range of nootropic supplements to help you achieve wellbeing and balance in your life.
Motion Nutrition is changing the supplement game by helping the body and mind energise and recharge using natural ingredients used for centuries. Their nutritional supplements support a healthy mind and a strong body by harnessing the powers of high-quality ingredients to ensure maximum bio-availability – making sure you get all the benefits from the nutrients in the supplements.
What Are Nootropics?
Motion Nutrition uses nootropics, which literally translate to ‘mind effecting’ nutrients. They are natural nutrients or foods which improve at least one aspect of brain function including energy, focus and stress-management. Motion Nutrition uses food-based nootropics rather than synthetic ones as this improves how efficiently we can access the benefits of these nutrients.
Nootropics can be split into two categories, those which assist productivity and brain function as well as those who have nerve-soothing products. This is why Motion Nutrition have brought out two nootropics-based products: the night-time nootropic ‘Unplug’ to promote a healthy, restful night sleep and the day-time nootropic ‘Power Up’ which enhances energy and supports focus, mood and productivity.
Unplug: The Night-Time Nootropic
Unplug harnesses the benefits of various nerve soothing nootropics to promote a deeper, more restful sleep.
Provides a natural source of melatonin, the hormone which controls our sleep cycle. Melatonin acts on receptors in your body to encourage sleep.
Can reduce cortisol levels, our stress hormone, lowering anxiety and stress which in turn reduces repetitive waking.
Improves sleep by reducing stress and anxiety whilst lowering resting heart rate, helping you fall into a longer, deeper sleep.
Is a traditional herb which reduces heart rate, anxiety and cortisol levels as well as regulating serotonin (the happy hormone) to reduce mood swings.
Helps support restorative sleep by maintaining healthy levels of GABA, a neurotransmitter which promotes sleep as well as encouraging relaxation.
Power Up: The Day Time Nootropic
Power Up utilises a wide range of productivity and brain-boosting nootropics to promote focus, mental clarity and all-round brain health.
Improves the brain’s ability to react to, and cope with, daily stressors and benefits people working under stressful conditions.
Korean Panax Ginseng
Benefits brain function such as memory, behaviour and mood as well as protecting the brain against damaging free radicals.
May stimulate the production of mitochondria in the brain, increasing energy production.
Lion’s Mane Mushroom
May prevent memory loss as they contain compounds called hericenones and erinacine which stimulate the growth of brain cells.
