How much water should I drink with Qualia Life?
When using the Qualia Life capsules, we recommend drinking a big glass of water (at least 8 ounces) when you take them, and making sure you drink plenty of fluids throughout the day, especially during the first week. One of the ingredients—creatine (as tricreatine malate)—is believed to pull water into cells. Because of this, it’s important to make sure you pay special attention to being and staying hydrated when you first begin to use products with this ingredient.
The Eternus sachets are designed to be mixed with water, but can be used in smoothies, added to juices, or mixed into other drinks, depending on your personal taste and preferences. Similar to the capsules, it’s a good idea to make sure you mix it with at least a full 8 ounces of water or other fluids.
Should I take Qualia Life with or without food?
In general, we recommend taking Qualia Life with food. Some of the ingredients are fat-soluble, so taking them with food, especially if it contains at least a small amount of fat or oil, would be expected to help with absorption. It’s fine to take it a bit before eating the food (or drinking a smoothie), in the middle, or a bit after eating. Digestion doesn’t happen all at once.
What time of day Is best to take Qualia Life?
Our general recommendation is to take Qualia Life at breakfast or as early in your day as you can. We consider Qualia Life a waking to mid-day supplement from a body clock perspective. While this is a bit of an oversimplification, we have waking and sleeping physiologies, which are very different from each other. What we want to promote or enhance during waking can be very different than sleeping. This formulation is designed to support waking body clock functions of cells and mitochondria.
If I miss taking it with breakfast, is it okay to take Qualia Life later?
Yes. If you are skipping breakfast and still want to take it, having it with lunch is fine. But be careful taking it late in the day or evening. One of the ingredients is a cocoa extract and contains theobromine. Theobromine isn’t nearly as alerting as caffeine but can be stimulating for some people, especially if taken too late in the day or at night.
Is it okay to split the dose of Qualia Life between breakfast and lunch?
Yes. If you want to take part of the dose with breakfast and part with lunch that’s fine
