The Dietary Guidelines for Americans cautions against mixing alcohol with caffeine. The reason for the caution is that when alcohol is mixed with caffeine, the caffeine can mask the effects of alcohol, making drinkers feel more alert than they would otherwise. The CDC's Alcohol and Caffeine Fact Sheet gives more information on their concerns. Since Qualia Mind contains caffeine, we recommend it not be taken immediately before or at the same time as alcohol is consumed.

A seven capsule serving size of Qualia Mind contains 90 mg of caffeine (there’s about 13 mg of caffeine per capsule) from an organic Coffeeberry® whole coffee fruit extract. This 90 mg amount of caffeine is found in about an 8 ounce cup of coffee.
Calories are not a standard part of labeling for dietary supplements, because, unlike foods, or macronutrients (e.g., fats, carbohydrates, proteins), vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and herbs don’t have clearly defined calorie counts. While we don't have exact calorie data on any of our formulations, we’d estimate that a seven capsule dose of Qualia Mind may have about 20-24 calories.
Most ingredients have many different forms of varying quality and potency. In every case, we chose the absolute highest grade form of each ingredient for Qualia.
