Qualia Mind’s effects are dose-dependent, varying with chemistry, body weight, general sensitivity and desired level of effect. The standard dose for most people is 7 capsules. Take Qualia Mind first thing in the morning, preferably on an empty stomach.
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 or more than 12 in a day.
Everyone's chemistry is unique, of course, and some users find that increasing or decreasing the standard dosage is key to optimizing the effects for their individual needs. If the standard dosage does not match your needs, we encourage experimenting and adjusting your dosage in order to find your optimal intake.
Cycling Your Use:
Qualia Mind is designed to be taken 5 days on and 2 days off each week. This maximizes the benefits while preventing desensitization. It does not matter if the “off-cycle” days are consecutive or apart, so long as they happen each week.
For Best Effects:
Qualia Mind was designed to work for those getting adequate sleep, in generally good health, and practicing good self-care. Please read our full medical disclaimer on our website to make sure Qualia is right for you. Good/adequate sleep is the number one issue preventing users from getting the desired effects from Qualia. If you are not getting the results you were expecting, stop taking Qualia and work on getting enough sleep and try Qualia again.

You should consult a physician prior to taking Qualia if you have any questions or concerns regarding Qualia as it relates to your unique medical history and prescribed medications. Please read our full medical disclaimer prior to use.

Calories are not a standard part of labeling for dietary supplements, because, unlike foods, or macronutrients (e.g., fats, carbohydrates, proteins), vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and herbs don’t have clearly defined calorie counts. While we don't have exact calorie data on any of our formulations, we’d estimate that a seven capsule dose of Qualia Mind may have about 20-24 calories.

The supplement industry is indeed the “Wild West” and there are a lot of snake oil salesmen out there with false claims and no ethical standards. Part of what inspired the creation of Neurohacker Collective was in response to this exact problem.
