We do not recommend giving Qualia Focus to children or teenagers. One of the reasons for this recommendation is that a 2-capsule dose contains 100 mg of caffeine. The American Academy of Pediatrics suggests limiting caffeine intake to 100 mg in adolescents ages 12 to 18 years old. Many teens consume some caffeine in beverages like coffee, teas, energy drinks, and soft drinks, so the caffeine found in Qualia Focus would put them above the 100 mg suggested limit if they are consuming any other source of caffeine. This medical organization has not designated a safe threshold for caffeine in children 11 years old and younger.
