HOTSHOT Sports Shot | Muscle Cramp
Now In Stock!
Beat cramps and perform at your best with HOTSHOT. This fiery liquid shot targets hyperactive neurons, the cause of muscle cramps, reducing cramp symptoms & soreness in training, competition and even during the night.
Developed by scientists
Invented by a Nobel prize-winning neuroscientist who suffered life-threatening cramps whilst deep-water kayaking, HOTSHOT works by focusing on the nervous system. No-one really knows the cause of cramps (there are many underlying causes, so if you suffer a lot from cramp it may justify further medical investigation), but recent scientific research indicates that athletic cramps don't begin in the muscle, but in the nerves. Motor neurons, which are the nerve cells that signal to the muscle, become over-activated, firing repetitive and uncontrollable stimulous towards the muscles. HOTSHOT’s unique formulation targets sensory nerves in your both your TRP A1 and TRP D1 sensors, calming the nervous system and helping to calm the mis-firing motor neurons.
Fight Fire with Fire
Formulated from a natural blend of organic spice extracts which trigger the TRP nerve sensors in the mouth, esophagus, and stomach. A single HOTSHOT activates these nerves to send a signal through the nervous system, calming the hyperactivity to reduce cramps and even alleviate soreness the next day. The fire in your mouth calms the fire in your muscles!
Athletes have historically believed that cramps are caused by an electrolyte imbalance, nutrition or dehydration. However, cramping is most usually a result of misfiring nerves triggered by repeated activity. HOTSHOT does not contain electolytes because it supports your nervous system, not your muscles.

When should I drink a HOTSHOT Sports Shot?
A HOTSHOT Sport Shot can be taken before, during or after a workout, or at the onset of cramp. It starts to take effect within 30 seconds, helping to keep cramps at bay, stop an active cramp in its tracks and even reduces next-day soreness. Keep a HOTSHOT in your track bag for emergencies!
How many HOTSHOT Shots should I drink?
To reduce the likelihood of cramps, drink the whole bottle like a shot, 15 minutes before a workout. If you have a long session or race, it is common to take multiple shots during the workout - it's completely safe to do so and is an all-natural product. If you're using HOTSHOT for competing, it is strongly recommended to try it out in training sessions first.
Why is HOTSHOT hot?
The fire in the bottle comes from a scientifically tested formulation of organic spice extracts - the active ingredients that make HOTSHOT a true breakthrough product. By activating the sensory nerves in your mouth, esophagus and stomach, HOTSHOT reduces mis-firing in the neurons, just like a re-set button for your nervous system. HOTSHOT is much more effective than vinegar drinks, which target single receptor pathways.
What if I don't like spicy food?
HOTSHOT is certainly hot, but it has been carefully formulated to be tolerable. Keep them chilled for an even better taste. The heat is the key to its effectiveness, so try to avoid drinking anything else for 15 minutes afterwards. If your stomach really can't take the heat, try swirling it around in your mouth then spit it out. Stimulating the nerves in the mouth achieves a similar effect, without hitting your sensitive aesophagus/ stomach sensors.
Is HOTSHOT safe for sporting use?
HOTSHOT is NSF certified for Sport®, free from over 200 common banned substances. The World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) does not approve individual products, but the NSF follows WADA guidelines. HOTSHOT is also non-GMO Project Verified, Vegan and Kosher.
