About Qualia Original Stack


We’ve all experienced burnout, brain fog, low mood, and mental exhaustion. Everything from poor diet to air toxins diminish the potential of your brainpower. Qualia is designed to nourish the mind with over 40 premium brain nutrients to immediately enhance focus, energy, mood, and creativity while supporting long-term brain health.

Your life’s potential relies on your mind. Feed it well.

Your mental ability involves many factors which must be addressed in relation to one another. For example, having mental energy won’t result in accomplishments unless you have sustained focus to go with it. Improving your mood is a plus, but not if it kills your ability to be creative. To actually improve all these desired abilities together requires a deep understanding of the relationship between all chemical and electrical pathways of the brain and body. Qualia’s formula expertly balances these desired abilities.

Power Quotes From The Show

“At Neurohacker Collective, we take a systems-based precision lifestyle medicine approach to optimize health. It's not about the disease model; it'as about optimizing the human state to first get it into homeostasis and then take it to the next level. We try to treat one piece of the whole puzzle rather than treating it all together.” – Dr. Daniel Stickler

“We're exposed to more information in one day than the people who lived during the late 1800s were exposed to in a 7 or 8 year period. That's how much information we're actually needing to process throughout a day. That amount of information requires a lot of metabolism in the brain. Think of the brain like a muscle; the more you use it, the more fatigued it gets and the more it uses up nutrients. Our brain is 20% of our daily metabolism but if you start doing a task, you're up-regulating that process. So, an entrepreneur's brain metabolism is really high and they're constantly running out of gas.” – Dr. Daniel Stickler

“Stress is not a bad thing at all. Stress can be an amazing factor for performance. However, when the stressor is removed, you want to be able to go back to the calm state to recharge and be able to go back at it again. We see a lot of people having a difficult time trying to go back to a state of calm baseline and gradually collect more stress throughout the day. That's when the decision fatigue sets in at the end of the day.” – Dr. Daniel Stickler

“If you're doing something for the purpose of weight loss, you've already failed. Weight loss is not a goal and it never should be a goal. Your goal is to get healthy. Weight loss is a consequence of the path you're following to get healthy. So, never look at anything as weight loss. That's the one thing I've learned from being a bariatric surgeon and a bariatrician. You can't do weight loss; it's just an automatic mindset failure from the beginning.” – Dr. Daniel Stickler

“When it comes to wellness, it doesn't matter if it's about upgrading the human system or improving cognitive performance. You can't just focus on one aspect of wellness. You have to look at the whole system of the human state and decide the pros and cons of upregulating something. Look at everything that you do and don't focus on. If you only focus on nutrition, but you're not also going to pay attention to exercise and sleep, then it's just not going to be a complete picture for the body.” – Dr. Daniel Stickler
