Qualia Mind Review: A Superior Nootropic Stack (2019) 5/5 (10)

Qualia Mind is a new nootropic stack from the Neurohacker Collective family. It was designed to promote focus, support energy, mood, creativity, and mental clarity. Since the original Qualia supplement used to be one of my top 3 favorite products, I expected a lot from Qualia Mind. But did it satisfy me?  

It increases our focus, motivation and delivers lots of energy

High-quality and well-researched ingredients

Several doctors and health experts recommend it

Cycling is needed on a weekly basis (5 days on, 2 days off)

Subscription is recommended

1. Qualia Mind Review – Does it work? 

Qualia Mind is an advanced and newer version of the famous nootropic stack Qualia.

Neurohacker Collective, the company behind the product, has an outstanding reputation in the nootropic industry.

When I received the supplement, I expected a lot from it.

And as soon as I tried it for the first time, I soon realized why it is so popular.

Qualia Mind Experience

Qualia Mind Experience

During my 2-week test period, I have tried a lot of combinations. I started with 7 capsules per day, I increased the dosage to 10 and later even 12 capsules per day, but in general, I believe 7 capsules per day is just a perfect dose.

An hour after you take Qualia Mind, you should notice increased alertness, focus and a smooth energy boost.

The great thing about Qualia Mind is that after you take the capsules, you can definitely feel how your mood changes.

Everything seems a bit easier, and a bit more fun.

Your focus narrows, you get a small energy boost, and it seems like working is easier than ever before.

Now, don’t expect a huge kick of any sort (you are not taking the smart drugs, just a supplement), but this pleasant energy and focus boost are more than welcome every morning.

And by taking Qualia Mind for weeks (or months), the effects and benefits should even improve.

So, Qualia Mind will definitely help you get into a hyper-productive zone that will last for hours.

Besides its effectiveness, I love Qualia Mind for several other reasons:

  1. The brand is like a Mercedes among cars
  2. They have lots of supporters even among doctors, health and fitness experts
  3. Their packaging is fabulous

The only thing I don’t really like is that you have to take at least 7 capsules every day.

It is a bit inconvenient. But if you want a high-performance food supplement that comes in capsules, that is just part of the game.

Anyhow, if you search for an outstanding nootropic stack, if you want to improve your focus and overall productivity, I would definitely recommend you Qualia Mind. 

2. Qualia Mind Ingredients (Is it safe taking it?)

Qualia Mind Ingredients

Qualia Mind Ingredients

Let’s have a look at some crucial ingredients of Qualia Mind:

ALCAR can cross the blood-brain barrier, potentially boosting the brain’s mitochondrial output.

Artichoke Stem and Leaf Extract (5% Cynarin)
It may have antioxidant benefits on brain health.

Bacopa Monnieri Extract (45% Bacosides)
Bacopa is an herbal cholinergic adaptogen with significant nootropic potential which may improve memory and learning.

Rhodiola Rosea Extract (3% Rosavins, 1% Salidrosides)
Rhodiola Rosea is a powerful anti-stress adaptogen with strong effects on fatigue and cognitive clarity.

DL-Phenylalanine may improve mood and anxiety levels.

Uridine Monophosphate Disodium
Uridine seems to possess significant brain energy.

N-Acetyl L-Tyrosine
L-tyrosine may alleviate the brain crash associated with an activity, stress, sleep deprivation,..

It seems to have a role in the relaxation due to its semi-seductive effects.

L-Theanine is one of my favorite nootropics that has the role of a relaxing agent without sedation. Besides, it can increase our attention as well. I’d recommend combining it with caffeine.

Alpha GPC
Alpha GPC is a choline-containing supplement that is used by younger people for improving their memory and by older people to decrease their cognitive decline. Athletes also use Alpha GPC to enhance power output.

Citicoline (Cognizin®)
Energizes and enhances mental performance without the crash of stimulants. Cognizin® Citicoline has been shown in human research to promote mood balance, memory, attention, focus, and concentration. Long term, it may help maintain healthy brain function against age-related structural changes and mental decline. Citicoline has also been suggested to assist with recovery after brain injury.

Mucuna Pruriens Extract (50% L-Dopa)
Mucuna extract is used in testosterone boosting supplements for its enhancing benefits. Besides, it might increase our dopamine level and decrease the cortisol level.

Phosphatidylserine (Sharp-PS® Green)
PS may sharpen memory, slow cognitive decline, and promote a positive-minded outlook. It has shown promise for helping the elderly with brain degeneration, apparently slowing the progression of memory loss while helping with mood, anxiety, socialization, and mental clarity. As a result, PS is the only nootropic with an FDA-qualified claim for reducing cognitive decline risk.

Theobromine may have stimulatory effects similar to caffeine.

Anhydrous Caffeine
It is the world’s most widely consumed psychoactive drug.

DHA (Docosahexaenoic Acid from Algae)
DHA is an anti-inflammatory compound.

Celastrus Paniculatus Extract
Celastrus paniculatus can protect our brain and improve cognition, but the effect becomes stronger over two weeks of supplementation.

Ginkgo Biloba Leaf Extract (24%)
Gingko Biloba can be supplemented for cognitive enhancement, or to alleviate cognitive decline. It is also used to improve memory.

Coleus Forskohlii Extract (20% Forskolin)
Coleus Forskohlii is a popular fat burning supplement that may also improve neuron-to-neuron communication.

Pyrroloquinoline Quinone
It may improve stress, sleep, and fatigue levels, while also offering significant antioxidant protection.

Huperzine A (Huperzia Serrata Extract)
Huperzine-A is a cognitive enhancer that inhibits an enzyme that degrades the learning neurotransmitter, acetylcholine; due to this, a relative increase occurs. It may be useful in fighting the cognitive decline in the elderly.

3. Qualia Mind Suggested Use

According to Neurohacker Collective, take 7 capsules with water first thing in the morning before eating. If stomach upset occurs, take with breakfast instead. Optimal dosage can vary based on body weight and sensitivity. Don’t take more than 10 capsules at once and more than 12 in a day.

Based on my experience with Qualia, I’d definitely suggest taking between 5 and 10 capsules on an empty stomach. I’ve experienced much better results with nootropics when taking them on an empty stomach compared to taking them with breakfast.

Do not exaggerate with the daily dosage, but feel free to experiment a bit.

And as always, I do recommend consulting your doctor before taking any nootropics.

4. Qualia Mind Reviews & Feedbacks

Qualia Mind is used and recommended by several well-known doctors, health and fitness experts such as:

Mark Divine (Sealfit), Ben Greenfield (Ben Greenfield Fitness), Dr. Scott Barry Kaufman (The Psychology Podcast) and Rachelle Brooke Smith (Disruptive Dare).

Let’s have a look at user feedbacks:

“Qualia is remarkable. Clarity, focus, and fluidity of thought. Like those 45 mins after a perfect cup of coffee, except it lasts for 6 hours and you never crash. Alertness and empathy increase, which leads to a kind of openness of experience and more balanced and timely judgments.”

“have a few months of experience trying the original Qualia formula. I rate the original product as excellent and perhaps life-changing. This product is very similar. Increased motivation, energy, verbal fluency, concentration, resilience, working memory, and positive mood are all there. A very noticeable effect too. When it starts working, it’s quite obvious that it’s not a placebo. Due to my high sensitivity in detecting my subjective experience, I do notice a very slight difference that each stack gave me.”

How about the negative reviews?

Honestly, it’s hard to find them. This doesn’t mean there are not any negative reviews, but they are very rare.

Most negative reviews talk about the user experience (it’s not that convenient taking 7 caps/day) and some people had issues with individual compounds from the stack.

But the big majority of people is more than satisfied with Qualia Mind.

And that’s why, since the first release of Qualia Mind (I got mine in May 2018), Qualia Mind quickly became one of the most popular nootropic stacks on the market.

And with so many positive reviews, I believe it’s going to stay so popular for quite some time.

5. Qualia Mind VS Mind Lab Pro 

Probably the most common question I receive in regards to Qualia Mind is:

Greg, do you prefer Qualia Mind or Mind Lab Pro? 

I thought about it and well, it really depends on what you want to achieve.

Qualia Mind vs Mind Lab Pro

Qualia Mind vs Mind Lab Pro

There are 2 options:

  1. If you want to take just one all-in-one supplement (such as Qualia Mind), go for Qualia Mind
  2. And if you prefer taking certain vitamins, minerals, and other compounds separately (or not taking them) go for Mind Lab Pro.

Qualia Mind provides a bit stronger kick and possibly slightly more benefits in the future, but it is more expensive.

Mind Lab Pro is a straight-forward nootropic formula that contains no caffeine, so it doesn’t provide any energy boost, but it works extremely well in the long-term.

Personally, both supplements are amazing and it comes down to you, which one you prefer. 

Again, if you are searching for all-in-one supplements, Qualia Mind is a product to go for.

6. Qualia Mind VS Qualia Focus

I like to say that Qualia Focus is a younger brother (or sister) of Qualia Mind.

It came on the market a couple of months after Qualia Mind and it quickly gained a great reputation.

Now, should you choose Qualia Mind or Qualia Focus?

Qualia Mind vs Qualia Focus

The answer is quite easy.

If you can afford Qualia Mind, go for Qualia Mind.

If you find it too expensive, then Qualia Focus is your plan B.

Now, there is not a big difference between both nootropic stacks, but Qualia Focus lacks some nootropics which make it a cheaper product.

You won’t make a mistake with buying any of the 2 supplements, but it really comes down to what you can afford.

That’s my honest opinion.

7. Where to Buy Qualia Mind?

Qualia Mind is a great product for you if you want to:

  • Improve your focus and alertness
  • Improve your mood
  • Have more energy
  • Be more creative

You can order Qualia Mind here >>

At the price of 119 USD (it is cheaper if you subscribe), it is a fairly expensive supplement, but it is worth the price. Especially if you search for an all-in-one solution.

IMPORTANT: Use code YOURINCEPTION & you’ll receive 10% discount.

I’m sure it will work just great for you – let me know your feedback!

8. FAQ

  • Should you cycle Qualia Mind?

Yes, absolutely. It is recommended to follow the 5 days on, 2 days off regime. 

  • When is the best time to take it?

Definitely in the morning before your breakfast (on an empty stomach). 

  • Are there any side effects?

If you do not exceed the maximum dosage (which is 12 capsules per day) than there should be no side effects.

  •  Can you get a free sample?

No, you can’t, but Qualia has a 100-day money back guarantee (you will get a 100% refund in the rare case you are not satisfied). 

Your Inception Final Recommendation

Qualia Mind has been one of my TOP 3 nootropic stacks since the beginning of 2019.

I recommended it to many of my friends and colleagues, and most of them still stick to it after months of taking.

Look, Qualia Mind is a piece of art, no doubt about that.

It contains very high-quality ingredients which are well-dosed and it is a premium product.

It improves your mood, it makes you more focused, and work becomes easier.

But Qualia Mind is not for everyone – it’s a fairly expensive product and slightly inconvenient to take.

Anyhow, it’s still one of my favorite and most recommended nootropics of all time.

And I see no reason why this should change anytime soon.

VERDICT: 4,5/5

    Would you recommend stacking Noopept, cycling 5 days on with 2 days off? Thx

      Hi Jeffrey, thanks for reaching out. I’ve never tried this combo, but based on my experience, I’d try it out and see how it works. Cycling is important. Please also keep in mind Qualia Mind is a very strong stack even without noopept. Let me know how it worked 🙂
