The supplement industry is indeed the “Wild West” and there are a lot of snake oil salesmen out there with false claims and no ethical standards. Part of what inspired the creation of Neurohacker Collective was in response to this exact problem.
Qualia is not a scam. We have a non-proprietary formulation - we publish exactly what’s in our product, with the exact amounts. We publish links to the research that support their safety and efficacy, which includes Phase II & III university and clinical trials, strong quantified self research data, and over 40+ years international research on nootropic stack formulation. We specifically designed our product with a set of ethical guidelines, so that we would avoid things like dependence or down regulation. In addition, the formulation was designed to produce long-term benefits to the brain, supporting the growth of new neurons, synaptic connections, neuroprotection, and so on.
Several ingredients in Qualia Mind—caffeine, L-theanine, velvet bean seed extract, as examples—are fast-acting nootropics.
Most ingredients have many different forms of varying quality and potency. In every case, we chose the absolute highest grade form of each ingredient for Qualia.
There are tens of thousands of different dietary supplements sold in the USA, with more added each year, so it is not possible for us to make any general recommendations about adding Qualia Mind to an existing supplement regimen.
Qualia Mind can be taken with or without food. However, some people prefer to take nootropic-containing products, such as Qualia Mind, away from food, because they feel like they notice the subjective response faster when it’s not combined with food.
Yes. Qualia Mind was designed to complement Qualia Life.
Calories are not a standard part of labeling for dietary supplements, because, unlike foods, or macronutrients (e.g., fats, carbohydrates, proteins), vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and herbs don’t have clearly defined calorie counts. While we don't have exact calorie data on any of our formulations, we’d estimate that a seven capsule dose of Qualia Mind may have about 20-24 calories.
Yes. Qualia Mind was designed to complement Qualia Night.
