Qualia Focus Review: A Powerful Formula For Half Price (2019) 5/5 (5)

Qualia Focus is designed to improve focus and concentration, clarity and reasoning. It is also one of the most popular and fast selling product on the market right now. But can it beat its brother Qualia Mind? 

Improves focus, mental clarity, and concentration

It is made out of high-quality and well-researched nootropics

It’s close to Qualia Mind, but probably not as effective



1. Qualia Focus Review

Qualia Focus is with its well research-based ingredients one of the best nootropic stacks for improving focus, reasoning and mental clarity on the market.

It is a renewed and slightly changed product coming from the Neurohacker Collective family.

Qualia Focus Review

Qualia Focus was recently introduced to the market while 2 previous versions of the product have dominated the market – Qualia and Qualia Mind

Neurohacker Collective is very good at listening to their customers and optimizing their products. Since lots of people expected a cheaper version of the premium Qualia Mind, here we have it. 

But how good is it compared to the popular Qualia Mind? And why is it so much cheaper?

2. My Experience With Qualia Focus 

This time I’ll quickly explain my experience with Qualia Focus.


Because it’s a very similar product to Qualia Mind. 

Therefore, you can expect a similar effect. But does it really work?

Hell yes.

I’ve tried it a couple of times (I’ve taken from 5 to 7 capsules/day) and honestly, I couldn’t feel a big difference compared to the Qualia Mind.

I know Qualia Mind is a better product (you can read the comparison between both products below), but it’s hard to feel the difference.

Sure, if there was a possibility to do proper testing (especially when using both products in the long-term), you’d probably notice some kind of a difference.

Anyhow, my experience with Qualia Focus was short but sweet. It definitely works and you should able to feel the positive benefits when you take 5-7 capsules on an empty stomach.

Your focus should improve and you should feel more alert.

Your memory should improve as well, but it’ll be difficult to notice that in the short term.

Therefore, I do recommend taking it for at least 3 weeks before judging the performance.

3. Qualia Focus Ingredients 

It is important to say that the formula is open-sourced and it is suitable for vegans, it is gluten-free and non-GMO.

4. Qualia Mind vs Qualia Focus

I can imagine lots of people will ask themselves what’s the real difference between Qualia Mind and Qualia Focus? Why does Qualia Focus cost half the price compared to Qualia Mind?

I had the same questions before meeting the Neurohacker Collective team in Toronto earlier this year at the Biohacker Summit.

They managed to explain the difference quite well:

  1. Qualia Focus is made out of fewer ingredients
  2. There is a lower dose of some of the ingredients in Qualia Focus such as Rhodiola Rosea (which is quite expensive)
  3. Certain doses of ingredients were optimized for a similar effect at a much lower price

Basically, there is not a big difference in performance between both products, but there is quite a huge price difference.

Qualia Mind is still the more advanced product and it’ll stay on my top 3 list. Qualia Focus, however, is not far behind and it’s definitely a great deal for those people who are searching for a great, but more affordable product.

Now it’s on you to decide.

5. Qualia Focus Side Effects

I experienced no negative side effects during my review period. However, that doesn’t mean there can’t be any. It is sometimes really hard to identify which ingredient causes the irritation since Qualia Focus contains 24 different nootropics. 

Now, I actually know a lot of people who are taking Qualia Focus (or Mind) on a daily basis (including a few friends) and none of them ever experienced any side effects.

So I believe you are safe.

But I still recommend consulting your doctor before supplementing Qualia Focus if you want to 100% sure it’s safe for you.

6. Qualia Focus Dosage

It is recommended to take 5 capsules of Qualia FOcus with water before your breakfast.

However, if taking dietary supplements on an empty stomach does you no good, you can take it with your breakfast.

Do not take more than 7 capsules at once and do not exceed 9 capsules per day.

That’s how you should get most out of this supplement.

7. Where to buy Qualia Focus?

  • It improves focus and concentration
  • It delivers mental clarity
  • It improves the brain’s adaptive capacity

8. Qualia Focus Reviews 

Since the product is relatively new on the market, there are not so many feedbacks out there.

However, I managed to find some very interesting reviews of actual users: 

“I’ve taken each Qualia product and this is the one that works best for me. Focus, concentration and the ability to articulate better during conversation are all things I see when I take this product. Day 2 I was out of coffee, normally a rough day, and I felt great through an entire day of mundane work, cleaning the house and such while watching our children and coaching one of them for 2 hours. This is where I’m going to vote with my dollars.”

“Focus works. And is more affordable. For me – a person who likes to keep things fluid in the belief that doing so has its advantages – I like to utilize all the Neurohacker formulations. I juggle the demands of the week with the different formulations – all of which work for me.”

I’ve been a Qualia user for over a year now. I adore the Original Stack and honestly was a little skeptical of whether or not a one-dose, more affordable formulation, could provide the same benefits (focus, concentration, increased mood and creativity) as the two-dose formulation. Well, Qualia Focus delivers all that and MORE. If anything, I felt my focus was even more tuned in than ever before. And did I mention the sleep quality?! Best sleep I’ve had in years. Huge fan of this new formulation. Guys, you really hit this one out of the park. Qualia Focus is absolutely perfect for me!”

This shit hittin! It’s perfect, I’m feeling more like myself then I have in months maybe years!”

    Great review guys. Any idea what the Qualia Focus capsules are made of? Gelatin?

    • Greg, Founder January 30, 2019 at 6:00 am - Reply

      Hi James, thanks for your feedback! 🙂 Their capsules are made of HPMC (derived from vegetable cellulose. 100% natural, capsules contain no preservatives, gelatin, wheat, animal by-products or starch). So they are basically made from pure cellulose of either pine or poplar.
