Mind Lab Pro Vs Qualia Mind

Comparing Mind Lab Pro to Qualia Mind is like comparing Mercedes vs. BMW.

In general, both products are amazing and definitely among the best nootropic stacks on the market. But they have a different approach to improving your cognitive performance.

While Mind Lab Pro tackles it directly with only a few of the most researched nootropics on the market, Neurohacker Collective decided to develop a super-advanced all-in-one supplement that may be a substitute for all other supplements you are currently taking.

Neurohacker Collective is known for investing lots of funds into research and development. Mind Lab Pro, on the other hand, has developed an instant success with its complex, but very effective formulation.

So, the main question is which supplement is better? Or rather, which one is better for you?

Let’s reveal the main differences and similarities between both supplements before we share our winner with you.

Mind Lab Pro Vs Qualia Mind: Similarities

Do both products have anything in common? Sure thing. When we were reviewing the products, we were surprised to see that their fundamentals are very similar, yet they are trying to achieve goals in entirely different ways.

Let us explain more.

qualia vs mind lab pro

Both nootropic stacks can improve your mental performance

First thing first, both companies have a goal to develop nootropic supplements that would help you achieve better cognitive performance and enhance different parts of your cognition.

With developing such advanced formulas, they managed to achieve that goal. Our tests and evaluations show that both products help you get more focused and more productive. Qualia Mind also boosts your energy and enhances memory, while Mind Lab Pro can only do the latter.

Qualia Mind is slightly more effective for the short-term boost, whereas Mind Lab Pro is excellent for long-term performance. As you can already see, they have a lot in common.

They contain high-quality and natural nootropics

After our detailed research, we can say without a doubt that supplements contain only the highest-quality nootropics. Most of them are natural extracts and compounds. Sadly (or luckily), they are among only a few companies on the market that do that.

Qualia Mind has a much more complex formulation, whereas Mind Lab Pro contains more bioavailable vitamins and minerals.

Both supplements are moderately dosed

There are hundreds of supplements on the market that are underdosed. But that’s not true for Mind Lab Pro and Qualia Mind. In general, both supplements contain a moderate amount of most ingredients.

It seems that both companies developed a supplement that contains the lowest-effective amount of most ingredients. This means that you can easily take both stacks for months without becoming dependent. We definitely support such an approach.

Currently, they stand out from the competition

There aren’t many people in the world that know the nootropic market so well as we do. And we can honestly say that both nootropics are among the best on the market. That’s why they are also so popular.

Sure, they have a few strong competitors, but overall, you cannot miss anything if you go with either of the two. Trust us on that.

So, we looked at the main similarities between the products. How about the differences? Are they any? Let’s find out.

Mind Lab Pro Vs Qualia Mind: Differences

Obviously, there a few critical differences among both supplements. Let’s check them out.

qualia mind vs mind lab pro


Qualia Mind contains 28 ingredients while Mind Lab Pro 11. In terms of ingredients, Qualia Mind is by far a superior supplement. It contains more than double nootropics compared to Mind Lab Pro.

However, Qualia Mind contains a few ingredients that are underresearched and underdosed. So, for the short-term use, Qualia is much better, no doubt about that. It is the only supplement of the two that can enhance your energy and quite effectively improve your mood.

Mind Lab Pro is better for long-term use. With fewer nootropics, it is safer to take, and it contains mainly well-researched compounds. While it lacks short-term benefits, there is really no doubt it will help to improve your long-term cognition and overall performance.

When it comes to quality, we already mentioned that Mind Lab Pro does contain more bioavailable and high-quality nootropics. This is important for long-term use. Due to the better bioavailability, Mind Lab Pro contains lower amounts of specific vitamins (for example, all B vitamins), which again is better if you are going to use it for months or years.

User experience

What do user experience has to do with nootropics? As you will see, quite a lot. Here is the issue: While you need to take between 6-8 capsules of Qualia Mind per day, you only have to take about 2-4 capsules of Mind Lab Pro.

Are you used to taking capsules and pills every day? If yes, then additional 6-8 capsules per day might not be a big deal. But based on the feedbacks, most people struggle with taking so many capsules almost every day. We have the same issue – we can easily swallow 3-4 capsules, but taking 6-8 capsules per day is not that fun. 

So in terms of user experience, Mind Lab Pro wins without any doubt.


Qualia Mind contains caffeine and l-theanine, which is our favorite combo for boosting energy. That is sadly not true for Mind Lab Pro. Caffeine delivers a substantial energy boost, and therefore, we prefer Qualia Mind.

This is the main reason I often recommend Qualia Mind to people who mainly need supplements for short-term boosts. You can feel the benefits, you know? You really can.


In terms of pricing, Mind Lab Pro is more affordable compared to Qualia Mind. Since the pricing of both products is often changing, do check the current prices on their shop (more info below).

However, last time we checked, the pricing for both products was as follows:

Qualia Mind$13922$6.30
Mind Lab Pro$6530$2.17

Sure, sometimes, it has hard to compare apples and oranges, but we think that the price comparison, in this case, is entirely fair. If you want to choose an excellent supplement for improving cognition, both are among the best. They work differently, but they tackle the same goal. Even though one is much more complex (and hence, more expensive), that’s how it is.

So, without any doubt, Mind Lab Pro is more affordable than Qualia Mind. It also provides a better value for the price.

Overall performance

To compare the overall performance of both supplements, you need to consider all factors. We did that, and our conclusion is quite obvious.

Qualia Mind is an ultimate nootropic supplement that provides all crucial (and a few less important) nutrients for optimal cognitive performance. Once you start supplementing it, you can probably throw away most other supplements you are currently taking. It provides short- and long-term benefits. In this perspective, it does offer better overall performance. But…

Mind Lab Pro is safer to take, it has more bioavailable nootropics, and it is much affordable. It loses the short-term battle, but in our opinion, it is equally good (if not better) for long-term use.

Yes, that was a tough comparison. With so many factors to consider, it is really hard to choose a winner. So, do you wonder what is our final suggestion?

  • If you are ordering nootropics for the first time, go with Mind Lab Pro
  • If you already used nootropics in the past, but you don’t need all those additional ingredients such as vitamins, minerals, amino acids, stay with Mind Lab Pro
  • If you used nootropics in the past and you prefer to have all additional ingredients in the stack, go with Qualia Mind
  • If for whatever reason you are not satisfied with one or another product after 1-2 months, try the other option and you’ll see how it works on your body

Oh, and just so you know, if we were buying a nootropic supplement at this moment, we would go for Mind Lab Pro.
