What is in HOTSHOT?
HOTSHOT is a USDA Certified Organic, non-GMO Project Verified, Vegan sports shot with a proprietary formulation that stimulate TRP channels in sensory nerves of the mouth, esophagus, and stomach. Learn more about TRP channels here.

HOTSHOT contains filtered water, organic cane sugar, organic gum arabic, organic lime juice concentrate, pectin, sea salt, natural flavor, organic stevia extract, organic cinnamon, organic ginger and organic capsaicin.

Why does HOTSHOT have a kick?
The kick comes from the scientifically proven formulation of organic spice extracts. These are the active ingredients that make HOTSHOT the breakthrough sports shot that really works. By stimulating TRP channels in the sensory nerves located in your mouth, esophagus and stomach, HOTSHOT prevents neurons from misfiring, boosts your Neuro Muscular Performance (NMP) and stops muscle cramps before they start. HOTSHOT tastes even better cold. Learn more about TRP channels here.
How is HOTSHOT different from other muscle cramp products?
HOTSHOT is the only scientifically proven solution to prevent and treat muscle cramps. Unlike existing “remedies” that target the muscle, HOTSHOT stops muscle cramps where they start – at the nerve. Invented by Dr. Rod MacKinnon, a Nobel Prize-winning neuroscientist/endurance athlete, HOTSHOT is the result of years of scientific research and testing. Not only is HOTSHOT a breakthrough sports shot, it’s the cornerstone for a new category in sports nutrition called Neuro Muscular Performance (NMP).
How do I know HOTSHOT does not contain any prohibited substances?
HOTSHOT is NSF Certified for Sport®, free of over 200 common banned substances. The World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) does not approve individual products, and the NSF follows WADA guidelines. HOTSHOT is also USDA Certified Organic and non-GMO Project Verified. That’s a good thing.
How does HOTSHOT work?
Muscle cramps don’t start in your muscles. They start in your nerves. They happen when your neurons get hyper-excited and blast your muscles with repetitive and uncontrollable signals. HOTSHOT’s proprietary formulation of organic ingredients goes straight to the nerve. By stimulating TRP channels in the sensory nerves located in your mouth, esophagus and stomach, HOTSHOT prevents neurons from misfiring, boosts your Neuro Muscular Performance (NMP) and stops muscle cramps before they start.
What is Neuro Muscular Performance (NMP)? 
Neuro Muscular Performance (NMP), is a new category in sports nutrition. It refers to the physical performance enabled by the continuous, consistent, and closely integrated function of nerves and muscles. Or more simply put, NMP is how an athlete’s nerves and muscles work together in an optimal way. HOTSHOT boosts your NMP to stop muscle cramps by treating the nerve. So you can push harder, train longer and finish stronger. And that’s just the beginning of NMP. Beyond muscle cramps, our scientists, in partnership with leading sport science laboratories, are currently evaluating other potential HOTSHOT benefits.
What is the scientific evidence behind HOTSHOT for muscle cramps?
HOTSHOT’s formulation of strong TRP activators has shown a statistically significant reduction in muscle cramp intensity compared to placebo in two distinct muscle cramp models: 1) electrically-induced muscle cramps; and 2) an innovative new model developed by Penn State University to measure exercise-associated muscle cramps.

A field study of cramp-prone endurance athletes who consumed HOTSHOT 15-30 minutes before their normal training sessions showed a greater than 50 percent reduction in the frequency of exercise-associated muscle cramps during and after exercise compared to the observed baseline frequency. In addition, the athletes reported a quicker return to training when a cramp episode did occur.

When should I drink HOTSHOT?
To prevent muscle cramps, we recommend drinking HOTSHOT 15-30 minutes before any athletic exercise. To treat muscle cramps, drink at the first sign of cramping. You can also drink HOTSHOT after exercise to prevent post-exercise cramping. For best results, avoid food or beverages that may coat your mouth – such as peanut butter, protein shakes or dairy – 10 minutes before drinking HOTSHOT. A clean palate allows HOTSHOT to activate the TRP channels in the sensory nerves in your mouth. Tastes even better cold.
Should I drink HOTSHOT all at once?
Yes, if you want the best results. We spent years of testing to scientifically prove that a 1.7 oz bottle of HOTSHOT is what prevents and treats muscle cramps. And since HOTSHOT is made with organic ingredients that are all GRAS (Generally Recognized as Safe), there’s no restriction on the number HOTSHOT bottles you can drink a day.
