Powerup and Unplug yourself
Do you feel tired all the time? Do you have trouble sleeping?
Motion Nutrition have created two ‘nootropics’ to optimise your performance and enhance your quality of life.
Unplug for the evening to promote deep and restful sleep, and Powerup for the morning to give clarity of thought and the ability to retain focus throughout the day.
What are the benefits?
The benefits include improved energy, focus, and concentration, long term brain neuroprotection against degenerative diseases, and improved neuroplasticity. Plus reduced stress and adrenal fatigue, deeper and more restful sleep.
Will used to experience an after-lunch ‘slump’ of fatigue and brain-fog, but now he is able to retain a calm but alert state throughout the day by using these products. Plus he can more easily sustain concentrated attention for extended periods, all without caffeine.
What are nootropics?
Nootropics are food supplements to help you optimise your brain and provide cognitive enhancement. These benefits arise from the thoughtful combination of active ingredients.
Having studied the sometimes complex world of nootropics, it is clear to us that a lot of care has gone into the formulation to combine complementary ingredients based on the latest science. Several have been used for centuries in ayurvedic medicine, with these traditional uses being supported by modern research.
When building the stack of components in Powerup and Unplug, Motion Nutrition gave careful consideration to dose-response curves, the way the compounds interact, and avoiding the need to ‘cycle’ between different recipes.
What is in them?
The ingredients include B vitamins, Choline, L-Taurine, L-tyrosine, Acetyl-L-carnitine, Ginseng, Lion’s mane mushroom, Gotu Kola, Rhodiola, Ashwagandha, Brahmi (Bacopa Monnieri), Montmorency Cherries (a natural source of melatonin), and L-theanine. You can discover more about their benefits in these documents, along with the contraindications.
Combine nootropics with floatation
Floating can also be used to promote your health and wellbeing, and we have found that these nootropics combine well with a regular floatation practice. They seem to reinforce the effects of one another.
You can give them a try over three days and experience the benefits for yourself with a sachet of six, or get a month’s worth in a jar of 60 capsules.
Pukka organic lattes
Make these luxurious organic drinks at home with a milk of your choice (dairy or non). Full of herbal goodness, gluten-free and caffeine-free. There’s no added sugar in these, though of course you can add a sweetener of your choice. Good for you and indulgent!
Cacao maca magic latte
Like a ‘grownup hot chocolate’, it also contains ashwagandha for calming anxiety, shatavari which is a natural anti-inflammatory, and Maca for mental acuity and physical endurance.
Night time latte
A velvety blend of malty oat and nutty carob, infused with lavender, chamomile, ashwagandha and nutmeg to soothe you ready for bed.
We’re very proud to be working with two local artists who use the float centre as a gallery space, but also have some smaller items for sale in the shop.
Monique Oliver fine art mini prints
We realise that not everyone can buy a piece of original art, so we also have some Monique Oliver Art pieces available as fine art mini prints (and signed too). They make a stunning greetings card, but can also be framed and enjoyed on the wall.
For just £5 you could treat yourself (or someone else) to one of these mini prints next time you come to float.
Sara Ulyatt catches the drips of paint when she’s creating her beautiful artworks, and turns them into new mini artworks.
She creates these beautiful necklaces and coasters. Each one is unique, and matches the colours of a painting out there somewhere. We love this idea!
