The standard recommended dose of Qualia is 3 pills of Step 1 and 6 pills of Step 2, taken 5 days a week while cycling off 2 days. A bottle of Step 1 contains 66 pills and a bottle of Step 2 contains 132 pills in accordance with this, providing a full month's supply.
Typically the standard recommended dose is applicable across the board except for a small percentage of people. Body weight can be one factor that requires dosage adjustment, as can highly sensitive or de-sensitized systems. With this in mind, we recommend starting with the standard dose, and then, if needed, making any adjustments from there.
To that end, quality sleep is actually more important than body weight when it comes to feeling the optimal effects of Qualia. Qualia works along the same pathways in the brain that move your memories from short to long term storage when you are in deep sleep. If those pathways are blocked or unavailable due to lack of and/or poor sleep, you will not feel Qualia working. We recommend that prior to taking Qualia (as well as while on it), be sure to work on your sleep and get as much rest as you, ensuring proper optimization and resulting effects, no matter what your body weight.
The length of time to notice Qualia's effects can vary, but in general, you'll be able to feel the subjective, full effects as it relates to mental focus, energy and clarity within as little as 20 minutes of taking Step 1. If you do not, and if your sleep is on par with the info outlined above, then we'd recommend increasing your dosage.
Everyone's chemistry is unique, and if the standard dosage does not match for your needs, we encourage experimenting and adjusting to find your optimal intake.
