When I first came across Qualia I was just scanning the internet learning all I could about Nootropics. I was sucking up pilesof information so put this Stack in the back of my mind when I could do my own Qualia Review. I think I kept it there because somewhere I read that it is nicknamed ‘the God pill‘.
Now, much later I decided to try it and give it my review. First, I’ll Tell you that Qualia is pretty expensive, but that is because it really is a good product and a premium on at that.
After doing my research I discovered this to be a very extensive stack made up of 42 Ingredients that have all been scientifically researched. This formula with this amount of diverse ingredients makes Qualia designed optimal cognitive and nervous system function.
One question I always ask myself first is ‘Is it safe to take? With that, I decided to get these answers straight from their website.

Is it Safe to Take?
They choose all of their ingredients on the strong empirical basis of their safety.
All our ingredients are chosen based on the strong empirical basis of their safety. What this really means is that they are chosen from experience and the history of use of the ingredients taking into account several kinds of research, and over 40+ years of international research on nootropic stack formulation.
They use only the highest quality ingredients. Many of these ingredients come from patented sources and are considered best in class. (e.g. Bioperine piperine, pTeroPure, pterostilbene)
All of their ingredients are rigorously tested to make sure they are all in proper form and hold the potency they require. All the ingredients, as well as their finished product, are chemically analyzed to make sure confirm identity, purity, contaminants.
All our nutraceuticals are in the most biologically active form for the purpose that we intend them. (i.e., methylated, acetylated, phosphorylated, L-form, D-form, etc.). The form of the nutrient makes orders of magnitude difference, which is a category we’ll never compromise on, and also is responsible for the difference in cost.
All of their products are tested against certain specifications and must meet the National quality standards according to purity.
“All our dietary ingredients are refined to achieve the highest possible potency and bioavailability basis for their safety. All our herbs and botanicals are standardized for the purity of active ingredients.”
Not only do they batch test all of the raw materials that they get, but they also randomly pull market ready bottles to verify the formulation in the capsules.
Here’s what they had to say
“In addition to our manufacturing lab, we have a research & development lab where we produce and test dozens of iterations of our nootropic formulations. We’ve had over 2 years of internal testing demonstrating safety and reliability. We have consulted dozens of doctors, researchers, and formulators during the development process.”

What’s Actually in Qualia?
These ingredients are powerful chemicals affecting receptor sites, membrane structures and synaptic enzymes.
They include Uridine Monophosphate Hordenine HCL, Noopept, phenylethylamine, Phosphatidylserine, Vinpocetine, Huperzine A, Theobromine, DHEA, and the one called “Pure Energy” (Pterostilbene bound to caffeine).
Herbal adaptogens concentrating active compounds while maintaining complex synergistic co-factors – supporting Adrenal/ HPA regulation, Long Term Potentiation, AMPK activation, neurogenesis, catecholamine production, tissue regeneration, and many regulatory functions.
Now that’s complicated, but it simply means the plant extracts boost your cognitive ability in one way or another.
Ingredients include Bacopa monnieri (55% bacosides), Mucuna pruriens (98% L-Dopa), Ginkgo biloba (24% glycosides, 6% terpene lactones), Coleus forskohlin (20% forskolin), artichoke extract (5% cynarin), Rhodiola rosea (3% rosavins, 1% salidrosides), Lion’s Mane (30% polysaccharides), and Gynostemma pentaphyllum extract.
Acetylcholine is a neurotransmitter that controls your neuro-motor connection. They boost your acetylcholine supply so your brain can communicate more efficiently with your body.
Ingredients include Centrophenoxine, Citicoline, and Alpha GPC.
Amino acids are natural building blocks for the neurotransmitters that govern cognitive function. These ingredients match the brain’s increased demand from our nootropics.
Ingredients: Acetyl L-Carnitine, N-Acetyl Tyrosine, DL-Phenylalanine, Taurine, and L-Theanine.
Neuro-Vitamins are vitamins and minerals and other nutrients such as the ones listed here. Qualia has included these vitamins and minerals that are specifically designed to cross that difficult barrier called the blood-brain barrier
Ingredients: Vitamin B1 (as Benfotiamine), Vitamin B3 (as Niacinamide), Vitamin B5 (as Calcium Pantothenate), Vitamin B6 (as Pyridoxal-5-phosphate), Vitamin B12 (as Methylcobalamin), Vitamin C (as ascorbic acid), and Vitamin D3 (as microencapsulated cholecalciferol).
Neuro-Anti-Inflammatories and Antioxidants
These ingredients are there to reduce oxidation in the brain, Antioxidants help to protect cells from damage which is caused by reactive oxygen species (ROS) and therefore free radicals. Both of these are unstable molecules which cause damage to cell structures. Some believe this can help clear up “brain fog”.
Ingredients: BioPQQ, Quercetin, Curcumin, Algal DHA, Green Tea Extract (98% polyphenols, 45% EGCG), and Bioperine.
I was still skeptical while I opened the bottle and had a look inside, but so much hype around this product made me really want to see if I could reap the benefits so many people talk about so it was on to step one.
In about a half an hour to 45 minutes, I started to feel really motivated to get things done that I wasn’t so motivated to do. I also felt just ‘better’. Hard to describe it other than that, but I liked it.
My morning begins really with a trip to the gym. Now I do Crossfit so low motivation, lack of energy will have you depressed after one class. This visit was going to be good, but instead, it was really good. I was focused and energized throughout my gym and indeed throughout the day. Just after one day, I wanted to tell people about it.
That was just day one and things only got better. They did plateau after a week but at a high plateau. I continued to be in a great mood, to be energized daily, and more motivated that I can remember.
As I held the bottle to start step 2 I certainly was not skeptical as when I held the bottle before step 1. I was excited to move on.
My ‘feeling better’ or an overall feeling of well-being continued and actually improved even more. I had less than half the stress I normally carry around.
My motivation was even higher and any ‘brain fog’ that I use to have was gone.
Now that the Neurohacker Collective has come out with Qualia Focus I look forward to trying it out. You can read my Qualia Focus review here.
Qualia User Reviews
this is the most effective cognitive enhancement supplement I have ever tried.
This is the only product that enhances every aspect of cognitive function without decreasing functions of any other areas.
DEFINITELY a 5-star product!
This is my third bottle and I LOVE the original formula of Qualia. It makes me focused, smart, and on my game. It doesn’t affect my sleep or make me feel jittery whatsoever. Nothing like that. It just makes me efficient and focused; my memory is sharper, and my creativity is at its best when I take it. Friends of mine who’ve tried it have had the same experience. Can’t recommend it enough. I am hoping they don’t discontinue the original formula, now that they have Qualia Mind, which is different.
Delivers exactly what the product describes. A gentle glow wakefulness throughout the day, without any kind of edginess or come down. Removes mental fog even when physically fatigued.
Also, their customer service team is incredibly fast and efficient. Highly recommend.

Qualia is pretty comprehensive for sure and as far as I know is the most comprehensive nootropic blend on the market today.
Just look at the list of ingredients that have been tested to be effective for what they have been included for. They improve your cognitive health and mental abilities.
There have been no recorded side effects.
In my opinion, Qualia is in a league of its own.
