In April-May 2019, an unflavored and unsweetened 5-day sample of Qualia Mind Energy Shot was sent to members of our beta tester community. Participants were selected to include a mix of people who were and were not currently taking a Qualia product (e.g., Qualia Mind; Qualia Focus). Instructions were to take 1 packet of powder mixed with water or a beverage of their choice before noon for 5 consecutive days. The subgroup of participants that were current users of a Qualia product were asked to refrain from taking that product while taking these samples. Participants were asked to complete a survey questionnaire after 5 days of taking the samples. Sixty-nine persons completed the 5 days of supplementation and provided responses to the survey.

- Fast Onset: More than 3 of 5 (62%) felt Qualia Mind Energy Shot within 30 minutes.
- Long-Lasting: Over 3 of 5 (62%) continued to feel a boost from Qualia Nootropic Energy for more than 4 hours; for 15% the results lasted more than 8 hours.

- Increase Productivity: More than half (54%) reported getting more done after taking Qualia Mind Energy Shot.

Disclaimer: Several factors should be kept in mind when interpreting the results. The study contained a small number of participants and was not placebo-controlled. While Neurohacker Collective is encouraged by the results of this small preliminary study, further controlled, larger studies will be required to verify the findings.
