Do you ever feel like you have so many things to remember, you end up one step ahead of yourself? Always thinking of the next thing you need to do or where you need to be? So much so that whilst you are concentrating on what you need to do you forgot what you are doing at that moment?
These days, I feel like my brain is constantly running at 100 miles per hour and I cannot keep up. Between being a parent, an employee, running the blog and everything else that comes with life, somedays I have no idea what to do or needs to be done and you can forget concentration too! I am that busy I struggle to focus on just one thing at a time leading to a totally distracted day and less productivity.
So when Utmost Me got in touch to see if I would like to try one of their products to help with memory and concentration I jumped at the chance. anything that helps is a good thing, right?

Trying Out Neuro Focus Plus
This would be perfect to try out when covering for my boss during August for his summer holiday. I am not a morning person so functioning properly at 7 am isn’t an easy job for me. The days were long and running the shop in his absence required me to be on top of everything every day!
How Neuro Focus Plus Helped Me Concentrate.
I took the supplements as directed, 2 a day with food as soon as I had eaten.
I have to admit the first time I took them, I did experience a light-headed rush. Now, this could be related to the fact they have caffeine in them and I was drinking coffee too. This lasted no longer than 30 mins and wasn’t experienced again.
I took the supplements for 3 days consecutively during the first week of his holidays and then on days when I needed them most. The bottle states to take them for 5 days to gain maximum benefits.
To avoid the placebo effect, I wanted to hold off on writing about my experience until I have tried them on different days and under different circumstances. Despite not being a morning person, I am at my most productive straight after I wake up so could I differentiate from my usual productivity and that which I can attribute to the supplements?
Initially, I felt that whilst I was able to focus more at work and get the shop set up and organised that was all it was.
I was mentally able to be productive and clear-headed whilst not so much physically. There was no ‘energy boost’ as such but the ability to work more effectively for longer. I still experienced the mid-afternoon energy slump but this I feel is more down to my lifestyle and diet.
More recently, especially now Olivia is back at school, I have been taking my morning supplement with breakfast on my work from home days. The first day I took them before powering up my laptop and managed to acheive a good amount work cleared from my to-do list in a short amount of time. The next day I decided to not take them and see how I got on.
I still had a lot of work to catch up that day and despite being ready for work, I wasn’t quite in the zone. So after half an hour of faffing around at the laptop, I decided to take the supplements. I managed to write 3 blog posts and catch up on some admin all whilst watching Grey’s Anatomy. Usually, I am a work in silence kinda girl, as I find the TV or even music really distracting. However my neighbours had loud music on and I decided if there had to be background noise, it may as well be of my choosing.
Do I Think Neuro Focus Plus Helped My Concentration?
Yes, I do think it has helped. Whilst I can’t give any more specific details than the day mentioned above or have any measurable results. I think not taking them on a daily basis really helped me judge their effectiveness more clearly. They didn’t give me any physical energy boosts but I personally feel that they are perfect for those blogging days when I need to be more alert to plough through my to-do list.
Neuro Focus Plus is available to buy from Utmost Me for £29 per bottle of 50 capsules (enough for 25 days) or £66 for 3 bottles (£22 per bottle) and £114 for 6 bottles (£19 per bottle).
