What are Nootropics?
A dietary supplement that improves cognitive function, specifically executive functions like memory, creativity, and energy.

you are the type of person who makes things happen

 

You see a problem and tackle it head on, you redouble your efforts when results aren’t satisfactory.

That approach works wonderfully in so many situations, but may backfire when it comes to sleep.Getting great sleep doesn’t come from rigidly following a list of rules, largely because sleep is regulated by our most ancient ‘animal’ brains, and rules come from the most highly developed ‘human’ parts of our brains.

To put it another way, your ‘animal’ brain (hindbrain) will easily overwhelm your ‘human’ brain (forebrain) to keep you awake and alert unless it is convinced that you arenot in danger of being eaten in your sleep. Because the hindbrain operates on ancient physiology and instinct, it cannot be ‘ruled’ with language and logic, only guided by environment and mindset.

5 TIPS
Improve your mindset
and environment for great sleep

 

1. Keep it Cool
Experts say between 60-68 degrees Fahrenheit is optimal for sleep. This helps drop your body’s core temperature which is necessary for sleep onset.

2. Keep It Dark
Avoid blue light several hours before bedtime. Phones and computer screens are the most common sources of blue light and most have settings that can decrease or eliminate blue light emissions.

3. Unplug The Devices
Remove the TV from your bedroom and cell phone from your nightstand. This may seem difficult, but this alone will create an environment that allows your brain to relax and avoid stimulation. Try avoiding your phone and computer for at least 90 minutes before bed for six to eight weeks, then re-evaluate. You’ll see our point.

4. Build A Routine
A predictable, relaxing series of events in the evening goes a long way toward lulling your mind into a relaxed state and ready for sleep.

5. Careful Consumption
Caffeine: Consumed closer than six hours to bedtime WILL disrupt your sleep quality.
Nicotine: The immediate “kick” experienced after consumption is a result of the drugs stimulus of the adrenal gland which releases epinephrine (adrenaline).
Alcohol: While alcohol consumption can cause sleep onset, as it’s metabolized it acts as a rebound stimulant, causing wakefulness or restfulness several hours later.

Unplug is meant to help your brain become a better environment for sleep, so you’re animal brain can relax and allow you to drift off.

THE ELIXER OF
DEEP SLEEP

 

Magnolia Bark Extract
Promotes the peaceful sensation that leads to the non-rapid eye movement phase of sleep. Honokiol is an active constituent in magnolia bark that is responsible for its sedative properties and support of uninterrupted sleep duration.

Valerian Extract
Reduces feelings of anxiety, decreases stress, and helps promote good quality, sound sleep. Acting exactly opposite to the effects of caffeine, valerian activates receptors that allow a tranquilizing sensation.

Hops Extract
A sedative botanical that increases GABA levels in the brain and has been used for hundreds of years to improve sleep quality.

Gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA)
Increases alpha brain waves which promote calmness and relaxation while reducing beta waves which keep you alert and restless.

5-Hydroxytryptophan (5-HTP)
Boosts the production of the “feel good hormone” serotonin by effectively crossing the blood-brain barrier unlike dietary tryptophan. Reduced anxiety and increased relaxation help you fall asleep faster.

Unplugged

I love the Unplug. I was skeptical when I purchased but I don't sleep well in general. It does help me get to sleep smoother.

This product works - read if you’re on the fence

I wasn’t sold on nootropics when they came on the market and even though I love WA, I was still skeptical. I tried this product as an alternative to sleeping pills from a doctor that I was trying to avoid. As an Afghan war veteran, I have a lot of anxiety at night that keeps me awake and from getting quality sleep. This product started working in about a week for me. I was able to relax a lot better when bedtime came around but the more noticeable thing was that I was waking up a lot happier in general. I’m usually not a morning person, but this elevated my mood first thing in the morning a lot. I’m sure some of that is because this product also allowed me to get better quality sleep too but it did work well for me. I take this with At Ease as well for all day anxiety and PTSD relief. I’m not gonna say this is a magic pill, but as someone who was avoiding addictive medicine from a doctor from my past trauma, this product worked for me. Give it a try if you’re on the fence. It’s better than the alternative if it works for you.

I take it every time I go into the backcountry.

I use this product both at home and in the back country. There’s not drowsy feeling of anything just a promotion of good quality sleep that I can see a difference in when tracking my sleep using my Garmin watch.
