How does Eternus work?
We’ve written a series of articles discussing how Eternus works in detail. But, in general, it works by helping our cells and mitochondria do more work, especially the types of tasks they tend to struggle to get to as we get older. When our cells and mitochondria can do more work, and get to all the important jobs we need them to do, we look, feel and function better.
Does Eternus work for everyone?
While it’s often implied that something will work for everybody, this does match the reality of complexity science or human individuality. A better assumption is to think in terms of response groupings. Exercise is a good example.
If we started a big group of people on the same exact exercise program, and followed how they respond over time, we’d find that some people got much more benefits than the overall group. These persons are called super-responders. Many people will have an average response. They’re responders. Some people will have either a less than average or no response (i.e., non-responders). And there’s likely to be a subset of persons who got injured. They were negative responders. This same type of grouping response reliably plays out when we test and iterate during our formulation process.
Response groups tend to follow a bell curve. One of our formulation goals is to shift the bell curve in a way that we end up with a high amount of super-responders (~33%) and an overall amount of super-responders and responders of about 80%. This leaves about 20% as non- and negative responders, with our goal being to have very few of this group being negative responders. Our testing of Eternus met this criteria. This product was not equal for everyone. About 1 out of 3 were super-responders. Almost half were responders. And, about 1 out of 5 were non-responders, with very few negative responders.
For someone who’s cells and mitochondria are already working at a high level, we wouldn’t expect them to notice as much as for someone whose cells and mitochondria are not. This is what we observed in our testing. In the subset of participants 35 and older, the percent of super-responders increased to about half, with almost all the rest being responders. So, in general, our testing to date has shown that persons in their mid-30’s and older seem to benefit more consistently and to higher amounts.

Neurohacker Collective uses a model of science called complex systems science. One of the core principles is adaptation. Living organisms are experts at adapting to things.
We haven’t studied Eternus in combination with intermittent fasting, so we don’t know whether in the real world it would help or hinder the response to this behavior.

One of the interesting things found in studies is that placebos can have positive effects … and unwanted effects. The common side-effects seen from placebos match what are found in studies of dietary supplements and what we saw in our tolerability testing.
What is the sugar content of Eternus? Can I take Eternus while on a Keto diet?
Yes you can take Eternus with Qualia.
When we designed Eternus, we did so understanding people would take it with Qualia. Because of this, we made sure that the products, when combined, wouldn’t be giving too much of any individual nutrient. We are not a “more is better” company when it comes to the formulation of our products. It was very important to us to make sure the amounts of every ingredient would stay within a safe range when this product was taken with Qualia.
A subset of persons taking Qualia in our testing of Eternus mentioned that the two together was a lot of capsules to take for them. For other people this wasn’t an issue. This is one of the reasons we are also producing Eternus in sachets.
While we’ve found that people often respond to Qualia better when it’s taken without food, there’s a lot more flexibility on when you take Eternus. The important thing is finding a routine that works best for you.
Depending on health, age, and other factors, what you experience will vary. In the biohacker and quantified self communities, you’ll run across the acronym YMMV. This stands for “your mileage may vary.” It means that every person does not respond identically to the same thing. YMMV is seen with diet, exercise, sleep needs, and circadian preferences (i.e., some people are morning people; others are night people). It’s also seen with dietary supplements. Because of this, there’s a growing movement for what are called N-of-1 (or one person) experiments.
A good strategy, when starting anything new, is to start slow and gradually working your way up. This takes advantage of the body’s adaptive capacities and minimizes chances of poor response. Exercise is a great example of this. When starting a new exercise routine, the tendency is to want to do a lot right away. But this increases chances of having very sore muscles or getting injured. So, it’s better to start conservatively and slowly do more as your body gets accustomed to the new routine.
What is Eternus?
Eternus was designed to make your cells and mitochondria (the powerhouses of cells) work better. When your cells and mitochondria are able to do their jobs better, we look, feel, and perform better.
Eternus was formulated to comprehensively support the multiple interacting metabolic pathways, signaling processes, and cellular mechanisms of long-term healthy function. Better cells and mitochondrial function translates into more high-performing days and longer healthy years.
Nicotinamide riboside and nicotinamide mononucleotide are newer (and very expensive) dietary ingredients used to boost NAD+. Boosting NAD+ is not unique to these newer ingredients. It’s the defining characteristic that makes a compound a vitamin B3. The niacin equivalents—niacin (nicotinic acid; NA) and niacinamide (NAM)—boost NAD+. L-tryptophan is also a precursor for NAD+. We included both NA and NAM, as well as L-tryptophan, because these ingredients can be used to make NAD+ and this approach supports three different ways of making it. Redundancy is a core value within complex systems science and something we look for when formulating our products.
