Can This Night Time Nootropic Really Free Your Mind?
As regular readers of this website know, I have spent the past 6 years researching and trying out as many nootropic supplements as I can, my research has meant that I have read thousands of clinical studies and assessed and tried hundreds of nootropic formulas from all over the world.
I am always on the lookout for exciting new products and I started reading on various social media outlets about a new range of products made by Motion Nutrition, a UK based supplement manufacturer. I was particularly interested in their night time nootropic called UNPLUG. It promises to de-stress your mind, soothing and calming it so you can tackle the next day head on.
I got in touch with the makers, telling them that I was very interested in trying out their product and then publishing my review on the website.
They Declined …..
Normally I find that most manufactures, especially newer ones want any publicity that they can get for their products, so I was rather taken aback by their refusal, which raised my curiosity even more – what have they to hide? .
Anyway, even without their help and a sample of their product for me to personally try and tell you about, I thought that I would write this review anyway. Its based on my in-depth knowledge of ingredients and what works and those that do not gained over the past 6 years.

Some of these ingredients do have a recognised nootropic effect, while others do not.
How To Take Motion Nutrition UNPLUG
There are no defined or clear instructions on the manufacturers website which is a bit strange, I do know that that the daily serving is 2 capsules, as its a night time nootropic, I would assume that you take just before going to bed.
What Do Users Say About Motion Nutrition UNPLUG
There are to be fair a decent numbers of positive reviews on the official website, I haven’t found that many independent testimonials elsewhere.

My Final Thoughts On Motion Nutrition UNPLUG
I had some decent hopes for this product, however the makers refusal to allow me to try it personally hasn’t helped my opinion, but as always I have been fair and accurate with my findings.
There are some decent, recognised nootropic ingredients in UNPLUG.
Bacopa Monnieri and Rhodiola Rosea being two such ingredients, although the dose of Bacopa monnieri in each serving is some 33% lower than other popular products.
Montmorency Cherry is know for its ability to increase melatonin in the brain, which is key to a good nights relaxing sleep although the amount found in UNPLUG is some 5 times lower than in some other products.
Ashwagandha can help to reduce stress when taken at doses of over 175mg daily, (there is only 100mg in UNPLUG) although some studies have indicated that this needs to be upwards of 500mg to have any real long lasting effect.
To conclude, the makers haven’t made a bad product at all, it has some key ingredients that can help boost brain function and help to alleviate stress. I just think that its a little underpowered with its doses of key ingredients.
“For me I would still prefer to use either Mind Lab Pro as a great all round nootropic or perhaps Performance Lab® Sleep to help relax your brain at night, reduce stress and boost brain function for the next day.”
Both are cleverly developed and use optimum amounts of key ingredients to maximise results without apparently cutting corners to make the supplements cheaper to buy – this is sadly what I think Motion nutrition have done.
There is no doubt that you might experience some benefits by taking UNPLUG, but these two will do more for you without any doubt.
