Powerlifting is not for the faint hearted. If you’re preparing to take on a big lift or beat your personal best, you need to be firing on all cylinders. Ammonia is a great way to wake up your system and get your body ready to reach new heights of performance.
So how does ammonia actually work? When inhaled, ammonia irritates your nose and lung membranes. This triggers an increase in your respiratory rate, which in turn draws more oxygen into your body and creates a feeling of increased alertness -- similar to an adrenaline rush.
Wake up and smell the ammonia with our range of smelling salts and inhalants
Choose from City Strength Ammonia Smelling Salts that are made from high quality grade ammonium carbonate, or opt for a pack of 10 Ammonia Capsules.
To use the City Strength Ammonia Smelling Salts, keep the cotton inside the bottle moist with a few drops of water or rubbing alcohol. This will ensure a more consistent dosage. A new inner cap design also extends the life of each individually sealed bottle.
To use the Ammonia Capsules, simply hold the capsule away from your face and crush it between your thumb and forefinger. Then slowly and carefully bring the crushed capsule towards your nostrils to inhale.
