Troy C. reviewed Qualia Mind Essentials
Just started, 3 days
I have found this product to be extremely helpful during this changing time allowing me to stay extremely focused so I may stay on task. I have been experiencing a bette,r more productive workflow while taking this product.
Well researched product! However, I would like to see some changes to the mind and focus products: Make it a grain-free product (e.g.: use tapioca starch as opposed to rice) Add lion’s mane (500mg), lithium orotate (5mg), riboflavin (2mg) and methyl-folate (400mcg), Cognivia (sage extract; ...
Able to complete tasks without digression
It took me a few days to find the best dosing for myself. I started on a Monday as I have more of a routine M-F. The first day I took 5 capsules in the morning on an empty stomach. I didn’t drink any additional caffeine that day as it is not always a part of my diet so it was truly the only thing besides water consumed for the first hour after waking. I developed a little stomach nausea so had to eat some starches to soothe the wooziness. I also worked most of the day lying down because the entire nausea took a while to subside. The next day I ate and then took the five capsules but still felt a bit nauseous so decided the next day to eat fruit then take 3 capsules followed by the remaining two capsules 3 hours later with food again. This not only mitigate the nausea but also kicked started my own acknowledgment of the benefits. The hurdle to begin large tasks at work was minimized, the desire to break for distractions was not as apparent, and it was easier to stick with completing one task before moving on to another. This is huge for me because I normally jump around task to task because the amount of work for each subconsciously intimidates me and I resist sticking to one thing for extended periods at a time. I took two days off, Saturday and Sunday, and am looking forward to seeing if these benefits are sustained. I will say focus is the main benefit here while I didn’t experience any additional energy or stimulating effects. Which was nice to not feel like I was “on” anything, simply more willing to dedicate time to tasks and made them feel in a way more approachable.
