Who is Qualia Life for?

Qualia Life can be taken by any adults, but the groups we had in mind when we formulated and tested it include:

  • Middle-age people who want to promote healthy aging.
  • Older people wanting to feel more alive and experience more healthy years.
  • Adults with chronic stress who want to do more to help their body better respond better.
  • Persons with interest in supporting metabolic function and/or promoting better shape.
  • Anyone with a big interest in healthy aging and supporting the fundamental mechanisms related to aging gracefully.

In our testing, we have seen more noticeable positive functional and performance enhancements in persons who were 35 and older than in younger adults. This makes sense because cellular and mitochondrial function need more support as we age.

More Frequently Asked Questions

How should I get started with Qualia Life?

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.

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.

Does Qualia Life work for everyone?

How does Qualia Life work?

We’ve written a series of articles discussing how Qualia Life 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.

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.

Differences between Qualia Life and Qualia Mind?

Qualia Life 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.

What should I expect when taking Qualia Life?

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.
