Many of us have at some point in life felt that our mind was not performing as well as it should be or used to. Nootropics are proving a practical solution for restoring or enhancing brain performance. Still, people seek out nootropics for diverse reasons. From inability to concentrate and difficulty recalling events, to declining productivity, and persistent brain fog.
There are dozens of nootropic brands so it can be hard to pick which one is most suitable for you. Each is often designed with one or more focus areas in mind. NooCube and Qualia Mind are two of the more prominent nootropics.
They are certainly a cut above their peers. But if you have to pick one, which of the two should you choose? We run a comprehensive comparison to see how each fares and which is the better option.
What is NooCube?
NooCube is a smart drug made from all natural ingredients backed by years of independent research and sometimes centuries-long use.

NooCube looks to not only improve cognitive performance and expand your memory’s ability but it also increases brain energy, enhances task focus, strengthens multitasking and sharpens oral and written communication.
It is designed to break through the stubborn barriers that make it harder for you to realize your life goals.

What is Qualia Mind?
Qualia Mind is an all-in-one brain supplement that combines more than two dozen clinically researched ingredients.
The ingredients fall into five categories i.e. nootropics, vitamins, antioxidants, adaptogens, amino acids, herbal tonics and lipids.
It is formulated to support the body’s regulation of neurotransmitters and neural pathways as a means to optimize overall brain function.
Qualia Mind enhances thought clarity, boosts memory, improves concentration, fires up drive and strengthens mental resilience.

Unique Ingredients in NooCube
Unique Ingredients in Qualia Mind
NooCube and Qualia Mind both rely on ingredients backed by years, decades or centuries of scientific study and/or medical use. For this reason, most users are unlikely to experience any side effects if taken at the recommended dosage.
Still, the brain is by far, the body’s most complex organ (some even argue, the most complex in the universe). That means there are no two people on earth with a perfectly identical mix of brain chemicals. The implication of this brain complexity and uniqueness is the results and reactions a nootropic may vary from person to person.
For this reason, talk to your doctor first before you get onto NooCube, Qualia Mind or any nootropic for that matter. It is especially important to do so if you have been diagnosed with a neurologic or psychiatric disorder, heart disease, hypertension, cancer, kidney illnesses, are on medication, are pregnant or breastfeeding.
Qualia Mind does contain caffeine (from the coffee fruit extract) which means some users with caffeine sensitivity could experience anxiety, dizziness, headaches, irregular sleep, palpitations and general restlessness.
Price and Offers
- Buying a bottle of NooCube costs $59.99 (60 pills i.e. 30 day supply) while Qualia Mind goes for $139 (154 capsules i.e. 28 day supply).
- NooCube offers price discounts when you order at least two bottles. Qualia Mind does not offer discounts when you buy more than one bottle.
- All NooCube orders attract no shipping fees. Qualia Mind does not offer free shipping.
- The money back guarantee window is 60 days for NooCube and 100 days for Qualia Mind.
Pros and Cons
The motivation for using a brain pill will vary from one individual to the next. It could be for better concentration, improving event recollection, raising productivity, eliminating brain fog, and more. These diverse reasons mean for some, NooCube will be the product to go for whereas for others Qualia Mind will be the right choice.
Still given the substantial differences in ingredients, the products do not offer identical results. One of the two brands does have the edge. And that’s NooCube.
First, Qualia Mind does have almost two and a half times as many individual ingredients as NooCube. Even among common ingredients, Qualia Mind has much more per serving than NooCube with one exception. It would be logical to assume that more ingredients means better performance. However, incorporating too many ingredients does have drawbacks. Topmost is that it makes it difficult to identify which ingredient works and, where necessary, which one is the cause of an adverse reaction.
Second, you need to take as much as seven capsules of Qualia Mind per day compared to just two for NooCube. This is problematic for individuals who struggle with swallowing pills.
Third, NooCube has no caffeine but Qualia Mind does. Qualia Mind users with caffeine sensitivity could experience anxiety, dizziness, headaches, irregular sleep, palpitations and general restlessness.
Fourth, as far as pricing and offers go, NooCube outperforms Qualia Mind in all aspects with the exception of the money back guarantee window. NooCube costs less per month’s supply, has discounts when you buy more than one bottle and offers free shipping on all orders.
