QUALIA MIND combines 28 ingredients that have been carefully selected to support mental energy, alertness, attention, concentration, focus, memory, mood, motivation, and overall cognitive performance.The word “thinking” can be used as a way to describe the brain’s primary function—taking in, processing, transmitting, and using information. The brain performs these functions using cognitive skills, which collectively allow us to perceive, reason, understand, learn, and remember. Related cognitive skills are grouped together into bigger cognitive domains including complex attention, executive functions, and memory. In the simplest sense, Qualia Mind was formulated to support an array of cognitive skills in these three different …

Melatonin sleep aids are growing in popularity, with Americans spending a whopping $367 million on melatonin supplements during the 52 weeks ending November 29, 2020. If you’re among those who regularly reach for melatonin as a holistic option to end an unhealthy sleep cycle, it’s smart to understand exactly how melatonin works.What Is Melatonin?In layman’s terms, Melatonin is a hormone produced by the pineal gland that helps regulate sleep timing. While melatonin is often thought of, and typically described, as a sleep hormone, it is a darkness hormone—it’s produced at night in animals that sleep at night (like us) or …

We’ve all been there. We lost an hour of sleep every night last week because of a looming project due at the end of the workweek. Over the weekend we slept in, in an effort to recoup those precious Zzzs. We even wake feeling like we have a little more spring in our step after our weekend snooze-a-thon. Is that it? Have we paid back our sleep debt with no lasting consequences to our health?Defining Sleep DebtSleep debt is the difference between the amount of sleep we should be getting and the amount of sleep we actually get. It’s a …

Sleep is, for many, the ultimate neurohack. Neurohackers track it and hack it. But even with all the sleep optimization tools available, quality Zzzs remain a challenge for many. Almost half of all Americans say they feel sleepy during the day and 35.2% of all adults in the U.S. report sleeping on average for less than seven hours per night. Getting a good night’s sleep requires timing and precision of what to release, where in the brain to release it, and when to release it. In a nutshell: sleep isn’t simple. It’s a complex ensemble of multiple interacting molecules and pathways …

18 years ago, 15 scientists in a lab -recorded a magnetic signature directly from a molecule in solution and to see if the recorded signature could be replayed to create similar effects in-vivo without the molecule present. The only way they could do it was by adapting extremely sensitive magnetic field recording technology from naval anti-submarine technology called Superconducting QUantum Interference Devices (SQUID magnetometers).These measurements took place almost at the noise floor of the instruments and needed specialized hardware and analysis techniques to record the cleanest signal possible. Incredibly, recording different compounds led to different magnetic signatures.These scientists used the …
