Is insomnia getting you down? Or can you fall asleep but find yourself waking multiple times a night for no reason? It may be because you are deficient in magnesium or your sleep hormones are off balance.
Base Nutrition say they have designed Deactivate with the aim of improving sleep quality, with the knock benefits of improving health, cognition, and improved mood. Containing all natural ingredients, they say it is not a sedative and will not cause drowsiness during the daytime or side effects.
With so many sleep aids on the market all claiming to get you the best night’s sleep you have had in a long time, what exactly is different about Deactivate and is it going to work for you? The Nootropic Watchdog investigates the ingredients and the outfit behind Deactivate to get to grips with the claims.
This formulation by Base Nutrition promises to sort out your frequent night wakings or difficulty falling asleep, which leaves you feeling groggy and sluggish the next day.
Linked to a multitude of health problems, lack of sleep can elevate blood pressure, the risk of heart disease increases, and people can become stressed or even depressed.
Deactivate promises to even out your sleep and get you deeper, more restful slumber. They say a side benefit is that good sleep allows muscle growth and regeneration which may help your weight and fitness goals, to boot.
It comes in 45 chewable capsules, which aid quicker absorption and lulls you to sleep within an hour.
One reviewer reported nausea after taking this product and another felt it made them drowsy during the day. Taking too much of these ingredients have been linked to a range of minor and major side effects such as headache and stomach upset. Magnesium overdose can cause serious health complications.
Base Nutrition Deactivate is $29.99 for a bottle containing 45 capsules, which should last you over a month. It normally retails at $39.99 from their website, and it is also available on Amazon for a similar price.
Containing a decent dose of melatonin, which is known to promote good sleep when supplemented, makes this a real contender in the sleep aid space. It has a hefty 2mg of melatonin, which may even be a little high to start with, as it is advised to begin a low dose and build up to a higher dose if things do not improve. If tolerated well, Deactivate is likely to give you deeper, better quality sleep.
Magnesium is at the upper limit of the recommended daily allowance, and whilst this may be great for someone who is completely deficient, if you consume any in your diet or other supplements, there is a danger that you could be getting too much if you take this long term.
We think working on the tangy taste and chalky texture might make this supplement more appealing to customers. We do not recommend Base Nutrition Deactivate to our readers.

Base Nutrition make products for the health nutrition supplement market in the USA, and among their range are omega fish oils, thermogenic fat burners, and carb blockers.
Deactivate joins their range as a sleep aid to help those who suffer from insomnia and annoying, frequent wakefulness during the night. They say this results in a stressed, unhealthy body and a sluggish energy that stops you from achieving your goals.
Containing high quality, natural ingredients such as Magnesium, Melatonin, and Theanine, they promise if taken an hour before bedtime it will promote a restful sleep and a relaxed mood.
But be careful not to exceed recommended doses of this product or operate any machinery for up to 5 hours afterwards. It also should be consumed with care if you have any known medical conditions or are taking medication.
Designed for those who find it hard to switch off and unwind at the end of a long day, Deactivate helps you relax and put you in the right frame of mind for a restful sleep.
They claim it contains active ingredients that will help you naturally drift off rather than containing sedatives to knock you out.
Base Nutrition say that during our sleep cycles the body can get to work on repairing itself and this, in turn, may help you with your fat loss and muscle gaining goals.
They promise that their supplements are subject to stringent scientific testing to prove their claims and say they are free from side effects.
The whopping dose of melatonin in Deactivate might help send you to the land of nod in a more natural way than a sedative, and should not leave you with drowsiness the next day. But, it is always better to test tolerance to ingredients like melatonin before increasing the dose, which this formula does not give the opportunity to do.
Tolerance to the ingredients is likely to be related to existing diet, lifestyle, and the age and general health of the user, but some side effects may be likely. Especially if you already consume magnesium as part of your diet or in another food supplement. Seek advice if you are uncertain to avoid taking on too much.
Rather than being a sleep aid per se, it is more likely that this formulation will promote relaxation and a positive mood more conducive to sleep.
The following side effects have been reported from the listed ingredients.

Many customers commented on the sour, almost tangy taste of the chewable capsules, and said it had an unpleasant chalky texture. They would have preferred a swallowable capsule instead.
A few reviewers said they felt more rested the next day after taking this supplement but did not experience lethargy and they liked that one bottle contained 45 capsules per bottle, which made it better value.
Another customer said that they felt it did nothing for them and it was a waste of money.
Base Nutrition stand by their products and say they will offer a 100% money-back guarantee on supplements. They even provide free returns within the USA. It is not clear if this extends to products sold on Amazon or if the generic 30-day unopened, unused refund policy applies.
Base Nutrition Deactivate is available to buy from the merchant’s website for $29.99, reduced from $39.99 at the time of writing. You can also find the product on Amazon.
