Qualia Review

Qualia is certainly the most advanced nootropic stack in the market today. It is also known as the “God Pill”. Does it really work or just pure propaganda?

The original Qualia product is no longer available in the market today; however, they developed an even better product, Qualia Mind.

The God Pill

Qualia has a total of 42 ingredients which are considered the most advanced compared to other nootropic stacks. It contains only high-quality and premium ingredients. 

These 42 scientifically researched ingredients’ formulation has been designed to intensify all the aspects that is most important for cognitive and nervous system functioning.

In the next section, we will be discussing how Qaulia works, how you should take it and Qualia’s effects on our body.


As we see it, 42 ingredients is a lot to take for a very sensitive stomach. That is why in the beginning, I have some hesitations about taking the pill. But when I received the package, I couldn’t resist and got curious with the hype.

Week 1:

Qualia is just a 2-easy step. First, with your empty stomach, you take 3 capsules. Then step 2, after 30 minutes, you should take another 6 capsules.

I couldn’t wait to experience the effects of Qualia, so I took the maximum number of capsules recommended daily on the first day. I continued doing so for the next four days. As advised by the Neurohacker Collective, I take a 2-day off every week.  Guess what, it was impressive!

The benefits of most nootropics took effect at least 1 week of use. You cannot experience it as soon as the first week. But with Qualia, right after taking the 9 capsules, I started feeling a bit excited and motivated to do my daily tasks. My focus seems longer than usual; I have a good mood every day and my productivity increased in just a week. I could definitely feel the immediate effects of the strong nootropic.

I experienced some stomach ache for a couple of hours on the first few days. Probably those 42 ingredients are so strong that my stomach can take from the beginning. Still, I continue the 9-capsule a day dosage as recommended by Qualia. I don’t want to miss the potential positive effects of this nootropic.

WEEK 2: 

As advised, I did not take for 2 days and my body felt happy I didn’t take all those ingredients on my first week. But during my 2nd week of taking, I maximize my dosage and took it every day, no rest day. As a result, I feel charged and felt like a software geek working 24/7 on Silicon Valley.

My body becomes immune with all of those ingredients I didn’t notice any negative side effects on my body. But still, you must remember that we have different body types, what my body can do can differ from everyone else’s.  Start slowly, and if you think your body can’t take the maximum dosage, then don’t insist. It is better to be safe than sorry.

My 2-week experience with Qualia is honestly impressive. Even though I reduce the consumption into 2 capsules per day, I can still see and feel the hype around Qualia.

Qualia is absolutely one of the most effective supplements I have ever tried. It’s a premium product with high-quality ingredients. Only, a bit overdosed but will surely give what you want, the best performance possible.


Here are the detailed specifications of Qualia’s quality ingredients.


 All 42 ingredients are chosen based on the solid empirical basis of their safety and effectiveness. Several kinds of research were put into account; Phase II and Phase III University and clinical trials, strong quantified and self-research data, and over 40 years of international research on nootropic stack formulation.


A test for all forms of environmental toxins like heavy metals, mycotoxins, pesticides, and other forms of the environmental toxin are tested on all the ingredients. They are also guaranteed to be at levels far lower than FDA GMPs requirements. Nonexistence of silica, magnesium stearate, animal, and toxic binders of fillers are found among the ingredients.


We use only the best quality ingredients. Most of them come from patented sources and are considered best in class like BioPerine piperine, pTeroPure pterostilbene.


All the nutraceuticals are advanced to the highest potency and bioavailability that are now commercially possible. The herbs and botanicals are regulated for potency and purity of active ingredients.

Primary Testing 

A Certificate of Analysis (CoA) is a requirement among suppliers to ensure purity and potency. Also, we go one step ahead by having a batch test every ingredient coming in using the most advanced methods of chromatography and spectrometry.

Secondary Testing

We pull bottles if the market-ready product and verify the formulation inside the capsules.


All the nutraceuticals are in the most biologically active form for the use that we intend them. Example, methylated, acetylated, phosphorylated, L-form, D-form, and more. The form of the nutrients affects largely to its effectiveness, which is a category we won’t sacrifice, and also is accountable for the cost difference.

Neurohacker Collective, the company that produce Qualia provides very clear guidelines on taking Qualia properly and safely:

  1. The standard dose for most people is 3 capsules before breakfast (step 1) and 6 capsules after breakfast (step 2).
  2. A smaller dose is advised in the start, but always in the 1:2 ratio.
  3. Cycling Qualia on and off is very important! One should take Qualia supplements for 5 days on, 2 days off every week. This is essential for your long-term performance.

You might wonder on why we take the 9 tablets separately. The reason is that for the ingredients not to be able to compete for absorption. Some ingredients are best utilized and consumed on an empty stomach, while others work better when combined with food.

If you have a distaste of taking so many pills at the same time, the dosage of Step 2 can be taken separately between meals. But, it should be taken 8 hours before bedtime.

Few people take less than the recommended dose as they discover the best dosage that works ideally for them. You are free to experiment with the right quantity of Qualia, only don’t overdose.

For the best of everyone, please consult your doctor before taking any new supplements. This is for your safety and checks whether you don’t have any allergy with any of the ingredients, and to avoid an overdose.

If not, kindly start with a smaller dose of Qualia and increase your dosage in the future if necessary.


In terms of usability and building up a tolerance Qualia is no different to most nootropic stacks. I recommend that you follow the 5 days taking and 2 days off with Qualia.

Qualia is not that strong but there are plenty of supplements combined together in Qualia. Follow the Neurohacker Collective guidelines to avoid any issue.


For quite some time, Mind Lab Pro has been my favorite nootropics. Especially when you combine it with Bulletproof Coffee, it will lead you to a hyper-productive achiever without limits. Qualia, however, is the new player in this game that offers several advantages and disadvantages compared to Mind Lab Pro.

Advantages of Qualia over Mind Lab Pro:

  • Qualia has 42 active ingredients while Mind Lab Pro has 11
  • Qualia focus more on R&D to provide a supplement that offers the strongest performance.
  • Qualia has high-quality ingredients.

Disadvantages of Qualia

  • Qualia is very expensive. A single order costs $149, that is good for a month of consumption.
  • The 42 ingredients combined in 1 stack are not necessarily a great idea. If you experience any negative side effects, it will be harder to identify which ingredient causes the irritation.

If you are looking for an all-rounder without additional vitamins, go for Mind Lab Pro. But if you are looking for the ultimate solution that includes vitamins and minerals, go for Qualia.


The Bad

The most common downside mentioned about Qualia is its cost. This brand is very expensive compared to other stacks available in the market. Secondly, a lot of people have prescribed vitamins and minerals supplements which mean that they don’t need some of the 42 ingredients found in Qualia. Also, Qualia has caffeine which many people avoid. Lastly, the recommended dosage is 9 tablets daily, it is inconvenient I guess.

Does it really work?

The Good

Qualia is popularly known for improving focus and concentration. Most reviews say that this effect is not common in some other stacks. With Qualia using the best ingredients and having the best support system, many consumers say that it is the best nootropic stack in the market.


  • Lifestyle
    Proper nutrition, exercise, sleep, mental engagement, emotional engagement, and a positive outlook are all substantial for a healthy body and brain. This is important to achieve so that Qualia can be effective and will be able to support cognitive function and productive flow to promote excellent performance.
  • Cycling 
    Cycling refers to 5 days take and 2 days off f Qualia capsules weekly. This should be done on a regular basis in order for the benefits to be maximized. This is also to prevent desensitization. The 2-day off cycle can be done in non-consecutive days, as long as it happens every week.
  • Sleep 
    Qualia is most effective in a rested brain to enhance function. Good and enough sleep are important for optimal cognitive function. Your need for sleep will be increased when you engage your brain more intensely.  If you are experiencing insomnia or any sleep issue, you may want to take Qualia earlier in the day or perhaps lower the dosage.
