How do I get the best results with Qualia?

Qualia is intended to support cognitive function and productive flow states as a part of a lifestyle that promotes well being and optimal performance. Good nutrition, exercise, sleep, mental engagement, emotional management, and an empowered outlook are all essential for a healthy body and brain.

Qualia was designed for regular use, with cycling: 5 days on and 2 days off each week. This maximizes the benefits while preventing desensitization. It does not matter if the 2 "off-cycle" days are consecutive or apart, so long as they happen each week. For maximum benefits, we recommend that people cycle off all caffeine (including this product) for one week every three months or so. Qualia can also be used fewer days per week, or on an as needed basis for immediate effects, but the longer term effects this product is designed to support require regular use over an extended period of time.

Qualia is most effective in a rested brain and is not intended to enhance function during sleep deficit. Good sleep is crucial for optimal cognitive function. When you engage your brain more intensely, it can increase your need for sleep, as is the case with intense exercise. Please note many people describe their sleep cycle going through an adjustment process the first few days on Qualia. If you experience any lingering insomnia or sleep issue, you may want try taking Qualia earlier in the day or lowering the dosage, prior to ceasing use.

The instructions matter! This is a powerful nootropic stack, taking it as intended is important.

*Please note, the following can impact or alter the effects of Qualia:

  • Taking Qualia if contraindicated in the disclaimer may not be safe. 
  • Taking Qualia too late in the day may interfere with sleep.
  • Desensitization from other past stimulants, psychotropic drugs or meds may lessen the effects
  • Not drinking enough water 
  • Cannabis or alcohol use
  • Caffeine desensitization
