Cycling maximizes the benefits while also preventing desensitization. As such, our products are designed for regular use, with cycling: 5 days on and 2 days off each week. It does not matter if the 2 "off-cycle" days are consecutive or apart, so long as they happen each week.
The only ingredient that produces a come-down effect when not taken is caffeine. Our product contains 90mg of caffeine – about the amount in a cup of black tea, or about a third as much as in a tall Starbucks coffee. Many people will still use some other caffeine source (coffee, etc) on the off-cycle days to prevent this. For maximum benefits, we recommend that people cycle off all caffeine (including this product) for one week every three months or so.
Will a tolerance form over time and/or cause dependency?
Key to the product’s effectiveness is cycling off 2 days per week. This is all that’s required to prevent tolerance from forming.
You may, however, notice over time that the product doesn’t seem to provide the same degree of uplift. Qualia was designed to create long-term lasting benefits and increase your overall baseline, so a less noticeable uplift over time is often indicative of a higher underlying baseline of mood and cognition being your new normal.
As you get started with Qualia you will feel more energy, motivation and drive but may also experience other feelings around your emotions.
A very small percentage of people have reported some kind of headache or head pressure after beginning Qualia.
Did you drink alcohol with Qualia or mix it with other drugs?
Because of the GABAergic effects of alcohol mixed with Qualia, a small percentage of people could experience feeling a little spacey or trippy. Some users may also experience heightened effects of alcohol, such as feeling inebriated quicker, when taking Qualia. For these reasons, we don’t recommend taking Qualia within 24 hours of alcohol consumption.
Since recreational drugs are not legal in the United States, we are not in a position to advise regarding their interactions with Qualia.
Parkinsons, Multiple Sclerosis, and Alzheimers are all very different conditions and those with these or any other neuro-degenerative conditions are contraindicated. To date, we have not done any clinical trials pairing Qualia with neurological conditions, and as such, have no data to share regarding its potential impact.
If stomach upset occurs when taking the product on an empty stomach, take with a meal instead.
Optimal dosage can vary based on body weight and sensitivity.
If you are particularly sensitive to having heart rate increase because you have a heart condition or tachycardia, Qualia might be contraindicated. Please refer to our medical disclaimer and consult with your doctor.
If it’s only mildly elevated, stop use for a day or two, and try again at a lower dose, if you like.
For some, Qualia can help them remember their dreams more vividly.
Minimal alcohol consumption, such as a glass of red wine in the evening, is generally well tolerated. Please note, however, that taking with heavy alcohol consumption is not recommended.
Qualia was designed to be free of adverse side effects when taken appropriately. Qualia is not a placebo but is a powerful psychoactive with high-quality ingredients, so be please read and follow all of the instructions carefully.
