We are committed to going above and beyond industry standards and FDA requirements for safety and quality.
Our manufacturing facilities are certified by GMP/ ISO 9000 quality management standards, using the industry best for our airtight seals, desiccants, and equipment. We receive and review a COA (certificate of Analysis) for each batch of every raw ingredient coming in, conducted using HPLC (high performance liquid chromatography) and MS (mass spectrometry).
As a secondary measure, we open every 100th bottle and verify that the ingredients in the capsules matches the manufacturer’s Certificate of Analysis (CoA).
We do small manufacturing batches of our products, reducing the amount of time between manufacture and delivery to optimize freshness. We focus on these dimensions when choosing our ingredients:
Science: All our ingredients are chosen based on the strong empirical basis of their safety and effectiveness. We take into account several kinds of research, and over 40+ years international research on nootropic stack formulation.
Sourcing: We use only top quality ingredients. Many come from patented sources and are considered best in class. (e.g. BioPerine version of piperine, pTeroPure version of pterostilbene, etc.)
Purity: All of our ingredients are tested against carefully selected specifications and meet the quality standards of nationally recognized standards.
Potency: All our dietary ingredients are refined to achieve the highest possible potency and bioavailability for their safety and effectiveness. All our herbs and botanicals are standardized for purity of active ingredients.
Form: All our nutraceuticals are in biologically active forms for the purpose that we intend them. (i.e. methylated, acetylated, phosphorylated, L-form, D-form, etc). The form of the nutrient can make a significant difference as to its effectiveness; this is factor where we never compromise. Putting a premium on efficacy and quality accounts for the higher pricing of our product as compared to many less expensive products created with lower standards for safety, premium ingredients, quantity, etc.
Because of the complexity and importance of human neurology, we have taken a whole systems approach that takes into consideration end to end pathways, multiple pathways, and the complicated interactions of many different supplements with one another, and applies a variety of ethical principles that are sorely needed in this space.
Our products are manufactured in the USA in 3 locations.
Qualia nootropics were designed to promote a sustained improvement across the whole pallet of objective capacities and subjective states that contribute to optimized, creative, productive flow states, including:
