Q: What is the recommended amount of Q-Force?
A: We recommend 2-4 chews on a daily basis. Each chew contains 250 milligrams of Quercetin. While many people feel an actual difference in their mental focus and workouts, or feel they can handle stressful situations better immediately, it may take up to a couple weeks to get full benefit of supplementing with Q-Force.
Q: What gives Q-Force its energy?
A: In addition to the many health benefits of quercetin, it offers performance benefits that you can experience. An extremely unique power of quercetin's is that it improves the key part of your muscle that generates energy- this occurs at the mitochondrial level of the cell. Mitochondria are sometimes described as "cellular power plants" because they generate most of the cell's supply of adenosine triphosphate (ATP), used as a source of energy.
Q: Can I overdose or is taking too many chews harmful?
A: Quercegen’s experts who prepared the dossier resulting in the FDA's GRAS Notified Status suggested that it is okay for healthy adults to ingest 1,250 milligrams per day of Quercetin, and for those battling a health condition, up to 2,000 milligrams per day. This would represent up to 5 Q-Force chews for healthy adults and 8 Q-Force chews for the latter.

Q: I noticed that it turns my tongue a bit yellow, is that normal?
A: Yes, quercetin is a deep yellow natural substance and will turn your tongue yellow for a little while. Some of it gets into your blood stream through your tongue via sublingual absorption. Our best advice is to eat some food afterwards or use mouthwash if this bothers you, or wear it proudly if you are On Q!
Q: Is there any caffeine in Q-Force?
A: No, there is no caffeine in Q-Force. Quercetin acts in similar ways to caffeine as it is an adenosine antagonist.
