And because it does not involve drinking and is digested soon after it is swallowed, AeroLife doesn’t stain your teeth like coffee can.

ABOUT DAVID EDWARDS, ARTSCIENCE LABS, AND AERODESIGNS

Who created AeroLife™?

David Edwards, the inventor of AeroLife, is a creator, writer, and professor at Harvard University. Dr. Edwards is also the founder and director of ArtScience Labs, a network of cultural innovation labs with its home in Paris.

Where did it come from? Some big company?

AeroLife is the flagship product from AeroDesigns, Inc. We’re not a big company—yet. It all started with a bet. One afternoon outside of Bordeaux, David Edwards was enjoying lunch at the restaurant of Chef Thierry Marx. Thierry sat down and discussed the opening of David’s cultural center in Paris, Le Laboratoire. While exploring a collaborative experiment, David, a pioneer of aerosol insulin and vaccines delivery, asked Thierry if there might be more interesting ways to deliver food and nutrients. Thierry was intrigued. David developed the concept with Harvard students and they first unveiled Le Whif chocolate in early 2008.

So what is AeroDesigns?

Founded by Harvard professor David Edwards in 2010 and based in Cambridge, MA, AeroDesigns, Inc. is pioneering air-based delivery systems to reimagine the consumption of food, nutrients and medication for greater convenience and effectiveness.

Then what is ArtScience Labs?

ArtScience Labs is a network of three small creative labs founded and managed by David Edwards in the USA and France. At ArtScience Labs, cultural experiments at frontiers of science with leading artists, designers, engineers, scientists and students produce works of art and design that are exhibited in educational, cultural, and commercial galleries. The innovative ideas expressed by these works frequently evolve through experimentation inside ArtScience Labs and within partner and ArtScience Labs Inspired organizations.

Are there any potential medical applications for the container of this product? What projects are in the works?

AeroLife’s unique delivery system can be used to delivery a variety of powders into the mouth onto the tongue for ingestion. At our labs in Paris and Cambridge, we are currently and constantly working on a wide range of product extensions and will keep the AeroLife community informed of our developments. In the meantime, use AeroLife only as manufactured and in accordance with its label.

ABOUT INGREDIENTS

What is the nutritional content?

For your convenience we’ve provided links to our ingredient and supplement facts panels from our packaging.

 

How much caffeine is in one AeroLife Energy?

Each AeroLife Energy contains 100 mg of caffeine—about the same amount contained in a large cup of coffee. The only exception is AeroLife Energy Coffee flavor which only has 80mg of caffeine. How much you get at a time depends on how strongly you draw in, just as with a drink it depends on how big of a gulp you take. As an estimate, we say each time you draw AeroLife powder into your mouth and onto your tongue and swallow you get approximately 15-25 mg of caffeine.

Are there any calories?

AeroLife contains zero calories.

My AeroLife tasted kind of bitter. Why is that?

AeroLife can taste bitter because of caffeine, which is naturally bitter. We added some sweetener to take the edge off, but left some “bite” to keep things interesting.

ABOUT USE / SAFETY

Is AeroLife safe?

AeroLife complies with all FDA dietary supplement regulations. When used in accordance with its label, AeroLife Energy provides a safe amount of caffeine and B vitamins for ingestion. Caffeine has been proven to offer a variety of potential benefits for healthy individuals when consumed in moderation, from providing energy to enhancing attention and focus.

Will the powder go into my lungs?

AeroLife does not enter the lungs due to the large size of the particles that make up AeroLife’s powder. The powder in AeroLife reaches your mouth where it is swallowed and ingested.

How do I know it’s being ingested via my mouth into the digestive tract?

Decades of research have shown that particles above 10 microns in size do not penetrate the respiratory tract. Our powders are of a median size considerably larger than 10 microns, and therefore—as confirmed via independent laboratory studies—cannot enter the lungs. AeroLife is a powder that falls out of the air into your mouth, not your lungs, and then you swallow and ingest the powder.

What does it mean if I cough?

Simply draw in more gently. If you draw into your mouth too hard particles will land at the back of your mouth and your reflex will be to cough. If you cough, you then have a signal that you should draw in less forcefully next time.

Does caffeine absorb into my bloodstream with this product differently than it does from a standard energy drink?

Clinical studies have shown that caffeine absorbs into the bloodstream at the same rate via the AeroLife Energy as it does following the drinking of a popular energy drink. If there is a speed benefit to the AeroLife Energy it is in its portability and the quickness with which you can pull it out of your pocket and use it.

Should certain age groups limit their consumption or abstain from using AeroLife Energy?

People have different sensitivity to caffeine, and of course the daily consumption of AeroLife should conform to a person’s reasonable intake of caffeine. In general, children are more sensitive to caffeine than adults. This is why we do not recommend the AeroLife to caffeine-sensitive individuals, including children.

Can you put any other substance or powder in the chamber?

No, you cannot. AeroLife is specifically designed to break if someone tries to open and refill it.

A bit of powder spilled out. Is there something wrong?

Just like a soda can, if you tip it over, some of the product may spill out. However, when closed, no powder will come out of the device.

How do I know when it’s finished?

When you can’t taste it and no additional powder comes out, AeroLife is finished.

Is there a limit to the number of AeroLife Energy’s I can use each day?

The product should only be used consistent with its labeling. Use the same responsibility as you would with any dietary supplement or other product containing caffeine. We recommend that you do not consume more than three AeroLife Energy’s per day.

What should I do if I have an unexpected reaction or side effect?

If you have any unexpected reaction or side effect, please first contact your medical provider then we encourage you to inform us immediately via email at hello@aerodesigns.com or call 1-800-616-2104.

What if I’m pregnant, have heart conditions, allergies, etc.?

As with any dietary supplement or source of caffeine, check with your doctor before using AeroLife if you have any specific health conditions or concerns.

If I am sensitive to coffee, soda, and the effects of other caffeine products can I use AeroLife Energy?

Bottom line: If you are sensitive to any other caffeine products, you should not use AeroLife.
