Utmost Me Neuro Focus Plus

Rating
Whilst caffeine is often used in nootropic supplements to help boost alertness and energy levels, it is not strictly a nootropic supplement. Caffeine from several sources is supported in Utmost Me Neuro Focus Plus by the addition of Rhodiola Rosea and Tyrosine, amongst other ingredients and vitamins and minerals.

Below we take an in-depth look at Utmost Me Neuro Focus Plus, to see what benefits this nootropic offers consumers.

What You Need To Know About Utmost Me Neuro Focus Plus

Utmost Me Neuro Focus Plus is the latest nootropic to be released by Utmost Me, a company based in the UK. They claim that the active ingredients in this supplement are clinically proven “to support Alpha Brain Wave activity that is responsible for creative thinking, concentration during stress, and the synthesis of natural neurotransmitters such as Dopamine”. The product also contains caffeine.

What Are The Side Effects Of Utmost Me Neuro Focus Plus?

There are numerous ingredients found in Utmost Me Neuro Focus Plus that could potentially cause some side effects.

Theanine causes a state of relaxation without drowsiness, and may help to counteract some of the potential side effects of caffeine, such as jitteriness. Consumers should still ensure that they do not consume caffeine within 5 hours of bedtime, as caffeine can interfere with sleep cycles.

Kola Nut and Green Tea are both natural sources of caffeine, and the supplement also contains caffeine as a separate ingredient. Consumption of caffeine can cause a variety of side effects, including headaches, increased heart rate, increased blood pressure, heart palpitations, increased urination, dehydration, jitteriness, dizziness, and insomnia. Green Tea can also cause constipation.

Although Tyrosine is tolerated generally in very high doses, it can cause some side effects including nausea, headache, fatigue, heartburn, and joint pain.

Bioperine increases the bioavailability of other compounds, including some medications; this could increase the chances of side effects from the other ingredients found in the product, or from caffeine consumed from other sources (tea, coffee, etc.). Consumers who are taking medication are also more at risk of accidentally overdosing because of the higher absorption rate associated with Bioperine, and so should consult with their doctor before taking this product.

Typically, adding turmeric into food will not cause side effects. However, taking high doses of turmeric can cause a range of side effects, including nausea, diarrhoea, increased risk of bleeding, increased liver function tests, hyperactive gallbladder contractions, hypotension (lowered blood pressure), uterine contractions in pregnant women, and increased menstrual flow. Turmeric also appears to interact with warfarin and aspirin; anyone taking these should avoid taking Turmeric supplements.

How Much Does Utmost Me Neuro Focus Plus Cost?

Utmost Me Neuro Focus Plus can be purchased from the official Utmost Me website, where a single bottle costs £30.00 plus £2.99 delivery charges. The company also offer discounts on bulk purchases. An order of three bottles costs £60.00, with free delivery. An order of 6 bottles costs £120.00, again with free delivery.

Utmost Me Neuro Focus Plus is also available to buy from Amazon.co.uk, where a single bottle costs £21.00. Delivery charges may also apply, but Prime Members can get free next day delivery. Unless you want to buy in bulk, buying through Amazon is the cheapest option available. We recommend avoiding bulk purchasing any supplements at first, at least until you have tried it and are confident that you want to keep taking the supplement.

Our Verdict On Utmost Me Neuro Focus Plus

We are not hugely impressed by Utmost Me Neuro Focus Plus. The supplement appears to rely somewhat upon the caffeine content, which is found in several of the active ingredients, including kola nut.

The manufacturers state on their official website that they offer a 365 day money back guarantee, but as they do not offer any refunds on opened products, we do not consider this to be a money back guarantee, merely a refund policy. However, the extended time period is very generous, as the majority of online retailers only offer a 30 day return period.

The supplement is cheapest through Amazon, where at £21.00 it is a fairly reasonable price.

Due to the use of Bioperine, anyone who is taking prescription medications should consult their doctor before taking this supplement.

Overall, we do not recommend Utmost Me Neuro Focus Plus to our readers.

Utmost Me Neuro Focus Plus Review

Utmost Me Neuro Focus Plus Facts

  • Manufactured by Utmost Me
  • 50 capsules per bottle
  • Suitable for vegetarians

Utmost Me Neuro Focus Plus is manufactured by Utmost Me, who are based in London in the UK. The company can be contacted using the information found on their official website, but they also have a FAQ section on the contact us page of their website, which should answer some questions.

How to Take Utmost Me Neuro Focus Plus

Directions for use are as follows: Adults take 2 capsules with food. For cumulative benefits take at least 5 days a week. Do not exceed recommended amount.

From looking at the Utmost Me Facebook page, we believe that customers may have some trouble getting a hold of the company for general enquiries. Many of the comments that had been left on the facebook page have gone unanswered, despite the facebook page being updated regularly. Since September 2017, some comments have been replied to, one the day after it was left, but another over a year after the original comment was left. One commenter posted the following:

OK I have emailed you! Text you on here and Twitter and on your webspace which failed. Over the last three days and NO ONE Has bothered to reply, I find lack of communicating with possible future customers somewhat off putting do you want to sell your products or not. If you had the carbohydrate sugar content and nutritional health breakdown of your product online I wouldnt have to contact you. However your lack of communication on this matter is making me wonder about ordering from you period.

We also received a comment on our Utmost Me Neuro Claris review, stating that they were having trouble contacting the company, and had sent five emails with no response at all.

What Does Utmost Me Neuro Focus Plus Claim To Do?

“Our Neuro Focus & Brain Energy Blend is our natural Nootropic formula. Nootropics are foods or dietary supplements that support brain functions such as focus, memory and concentration.

Does Utmost Me Neuro Focus Plus Work?

The clinical support to show that Turmeric can improve memory was a study looking at the elderly specifically on a small scale (60 participants over 4 weeks), using an unknown quantity of curcumin; it is not proven to work in all age groups, and much more study is required to prove that Turmeric can improve memory.

Tyrosine may help to support cognition and memory during stressful period, but otherwise may not help much.

Kola Nut and Green tea both naturally contain caffeine, which is also present as a separate ingredient. Caffeine boosts energy levels, both physically and mentally, and it can boost alertness, but it is not considered a true nootropic, and you can experience a post-caffeine crash mentally.

Overall, Utmost Me Neuro Focus Plus appears to be a relatively mild nootropic that relies upon the caffeine content to help to boost energy levels and alertness.

What Are The Ingredients of Utmost Me Neuro Focus Plus?

The ingredients found in Utmost Me Neuro Focus Plus are detailed below. The ingredient quantities listed are per serving of two capsules.

Neuro Focus & Brain Energy Blend

  • L-Tyrosine 250 mg: An amino acid that is a building block of protein, this ingredient is found naturally in many foods including meat and dairy products. In existing trials, L-Tyrosine appears to effectively improve cognition and memory during stressful periods. Source
  • Rhodiola Rosea Extract 200 mg: This plant has been shown to increase endurance in rats forced to swim for long periods of time. It may also help to improve recovery time after exhaustive exercise. There is little clinical evidence based upon humans. Source
  • Green Tea Extract 111 mg: Green tea is high in a group of antioxidants called catechins. Studies have suggested that catechins and caffeine both increase energy expenditure by boosting the metabolism temporarily. However, the metabolic increase caused by green tea is limited. One study found that the use of green tea was not enough to counteract weight gain following a high calorie diet. Source
  • Curcumin Focus (Turmeric Extract) 85 mg: Turmeric is great source of Curcumin, a yellow pigment that has numerous benefits, including reducing anxiety, soothing an upset stomach, and reducing inflammation and joint pain from osteoarthritis, leading to increased mobility in the elderly. There is very preliminary evidence to suggest that Curcumin supplementation could improve memory and attention span in the elderly, but more research is needed. Bioperine greatly enhances absorption of Curcumin. Source
  • Caffeine (Natural Coffee Extract) 75 mg: Numerous studies have shown that caffeine boosts energy levels and alertness, as well as mildly boosting the metabolism. The effects shown in studies are small, and some studies are inconclusive. Source
  • L-Theanine (from Green Tea) 50 mg: This amino acid is found in green tea, and may increase feelings of relaxation. It may also reduce the negative side effects of caffeine, although there is seemingly no clinical evidence to support this claim. Source
  • Kola Nut Extract 10 mg: Kola nut has been studied in relation to weight loss, but in conjunction with ephedra, a substance that is now banned in the U.S due to severe side effects. As a source of caffeine, Kola Nut may boost the metabolism mildly. In animal studies, regular use of kola nut over a month resulted in a decrease in both appetite and body weight. Source
  • Zinc 7.5 mg (75% RDA)
  • Biotin 37.5 mcg (75% RDA)

Delivery & Absorption System

  • Soya Lecithin 110 mg
  • Blackberry Extract 100 mg
  • Bioperine (Black Pepper Extract) 21 mg: This patented Black pepper extract is used for increasing the bioavailability of nutritional compounds. In other words, it increases the amounts of nutrients that are absorbed into the body in the digestive tract. It may also increase the absorption of various drugs, which may lead to potential side effects. Source

Brain Vitamin Complex

  • Vitamin D3 1000 IU (25 mcg) (500% RDA)
  • Vitamin C 60 mg (175% RDA)
  • Vitamin B2 (Riboflavin) 1.06 mg (75% RDA)
  • Vitamin B3 (Niacin) 12 mg NE (75% RDA)
  • Vitamin B5 (Pantothenic Acid) 4.5 mg (75% RDA)
  • Vitamin B6 1.06 mg (75% RDA)
  • Vitamin B12 1.88 mcg (75% RDA)

Are There Any Customer Reviews For Utmost Me Neuro Focus Plus?

There are numerous customer reviews for Utmost Me Neuro Focus on the amazon sales page for the product. Fakespot (a website that checks the authenticity of online reviews) suggests that many of the customer reviews for other Utmost Me supplements are fake or suspicious, but this does not appear to be a huge problem for this new product yet. We have tried to include authentic reviews for the product below.

Tried these for extra concentration with my uni work but felt like these given me too much energy, had trouble sleeping therefore having a knock on effect with my concentration through not sleeping properly, wouldn’t recommend to anyone who doesn’t suffer from low energy

I do sometimes have some fatigue, so I was keen to see the results. I have only tried the supplements for one day and, to be fair, I did have a productive day. But I don’t know how much is placebo yet, so I will continue to take.

I was a little sceptic as I am with all these things but I do feel like they have helped me a lot. I’ve got two young kids, a tiring job and not enough time in the day to get things done. I needed something to make me more efficient with the time I have and these little beauties are helping!

Definitely worth it if you’re struggling to concentrate or not feeling quite as sharp as you used to!

So far so focused. I’ve been on the hunt for brain vitamins after researching nootropics. Been taking these for 2 days and so far, so focused!
