It's A Battle of Nerves

Your nerves are what trigger muscle cramps and lingering soreness during or post-exercise. It’s not dehydration or electrolyte-imbalance. HOTSHOT was created to quickly target these nerves to prevent or stop an active cramp and reduce next-day muscle soreness.

Invented by an Endurance Athlete/ Nobel Prize-Winning Neuroscientist

Necessity is the mother of invention. Despite being hydrated and having good nutrition, our founders were hit with severe muscle cramps during a deep-sea kayaking trip. The experience drove them to search out the truth among the cramping myths… and the 1.7oz sports shot was born. HOTSHOT is the first and only scientifically proven way to prevent muscle cramps and aid in reducing muscle soreness. Learn how it works.

Fight Fire with Fire

It’s all in the heat. Our proprietary blend of all-natural ginger, cinnamon and capsaicin deliver a spicy shot to your nervous system to attack muscle cramping and soreness.
