Q Sciences Monthly Newsletter by Dr. K | EMPowerplus Q96 side effects

Greetings and salutations! This month I would like to go over some product news, tips, and insights—all aimed at
boosting your understanding and ability to communicate the benefits of our products to your clients.
Q Biotics Reminder:
I have just returned from a vacation in Mexico, and thanks to daily use of Q Biotics, my family was kept safe from the
dreaded Montezuma’s revenge (traveler’s diarrhea). This is great stuff to have in your bag or first aid kit, and if you do
happen to get some stomach upset, increase the dosage to 2–3 for a few days to re-establish your intestinal biome. This will
not only keep you safe from bad bacteria, but viruses as well. Remember, a healthy intestinal biome improves all aspects of
physical and mental health.

Interactions and Side Effects:
I enjoy responding to all your questions and concerns regarding Q Sciences
products via the “Ask the Doctors” feature. I have been uniformly impressed
by the intelligence and quality of the Q Sciences IBOs, and no question is
a bad one! You have many great questions, but I feel that it is once again
time to put to rest the various concerns about “possible” side effects from
our supplements. Let’s take EMPowerplus™ Q96 as an example: ALL of the
ingredients (save gingko) in EMPowerplus™ Q96, including trace elements
such as vanadium and germanium, are found in a balanced diet. The only
exception is gingko—an excellent herb that is included in a very small and
appropriate dosage, and which acts as a catalyst for the other ingredients.
Gingko rarely causes an allergic response (rash or hives) but that is a
remote possibility. If someone reports a rash, I recommend that they stop
EMPowerplus™ Q96 until the rash is gone and then try again. If it recurs then
it may be the cause, but not necessarily. In general, the solid advice for those
who feel that they may be experiencing untoward effects from any supplement
or medication is to stop everything, if possible, and restart slowly when all
symptoms have resolved. This is the most logical and scientific means of
determining the cause, although for many problems the cause might
I did get an email regarding someone taking five times the usual 500 mg dose
of St. John’s Wort. This could pose a problem if that high of a dose is taken
with EMPowerplus™ Q96, as it is an MAO inhibitor and this might lead to
some agitation. A 500 mg dose along with four EMPowerplus™ Q96 would
most likely be fine, but if you wanted to increase the EMPowerplus™ Q96
dose beyond that it would be best to stop the St. John’s Wort entirely.
Naturally, the minerals you get in your diet or other alkaline mineral
supplements are far less bioavailable, and the overall effect of the chelated,
micronized, and balanced micronutrients in EMPowerplus™ Q96 is more
potent—hence the benefits and often nearly immediate results in terms
of wellbeing and mood uplift. Nonetheless, I sometimes get emails from
individuals who are concerned that they are having weird dreams, acne,
intestinal gas, difficulty driving, or other symptoms because they happened to
have started taking EMPowerplus™ Q96 weeks before.
Clearly, there are many causes for such symptoms, but it is only human
nature to ascribe any and all physical, emotional, and mental symptoms to a
supplement that they have been told is very potent. I have seen this time and
time again over my 40 years in health care. EMPowerplus™ Q96 is very potent,
make no mistake, but 29 times out of 30 it is not related to the symptoms
described. I certainly understand the knee-jerk reaction to a new supplement,
but in reality, EMPowerplus™ Q96 and all other Q Sciences products are
extremely well tolerated and side effect-free. I suggest that when dealing with
such concerns you first reassure the individual and then utilize the “Ask the
Doctors” service—we will get back to you promptly and put the matter to rest.
NO other supplement company can offer such a considered and expeditious
scientific response, in my experience. In addition, I get many questions about
