What should I expect when taking Eternus?

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.

Not surprisingly, in our testing of Eternus, we saw YMMV in action, when we look at the group as a whole (ranging in age from early 20’s to 70’s). Functional improvements individual people noticed varied. While most people noticed something, they did not all experience the same things.

About 6 out of 10 participants noticed higher energy and motivation levels. Close to the same number felt like they were better able to handle stress. Just over half felt a benefit in productivity … they were getting more meaningful work done than usual. For a few of them this was especially noticeable late in the day or in the evening, time periods when they would normally have exhausted their drive to be productive. Half of the group felt like the product allowed them to deal better with complex problems. About 4 out of 10 noticed a positive difference in their workouts. Almost one out of three people noticed an improvement in their sleep.

How soon will I notice something?

Eternus wasn’t designed to produce the type of immediate subjective response that our Qualia line of nootropics (Mind, Focus) are known for. Eternus is designed to give cells and mitochondria the nutritional support they need to work better. When they work better, we look, feel, and perform better … but this may take time.

Enhancing fundamental processes of cellular energy and mitochondrial performance is a slower process, because it gets to the roots of healthy aging, working from the ground up. In our testing, some people noticed some area of functional performance and/or subjective experience change almost immediately, many started to notice something within one week, but for most people it took a month of use.

It’s important to keep in mind that we don’t always feel a big difference as our cells and mitochondria slowly begin to perform better and produce more energy. Our senses are not as good at detecting slow, gradual enhancements as big, dramatic ones. It may be helpful to keep a journal of your experiences and how you are feeling over time so you can be more aware of those changes as they occur over time.

More Frequently Asked Questions

Can I take Eternus while intermittent fasting?

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.

What should I do if I notice a side-effect and think it might be because of this product?

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 Eternus?

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.

How should I get started with Eternus?

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.

Can I take Eternus in addition to one of the Qualia products?

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.

Why do you recommend taking it for 5 days followed by 2 days off?

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.

Why don’t you use nicotinamide ribose or nicotinamide mononucleotide?

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.

How should I take Eternus?

How much water should I drink with Eternus?

When using the Eternus 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.

Do I need to take the full dose of Eternus?

In general, we recommend taking the full dose. The full dose provides the studied amounts of many of the ingredients (this is an important part of being able to make accurate structure/function claims) and is the dose we designed the formulation to deliver and have studied in our testing.
