What is the scientific evidence behind HOTSHOT for muscle cramps?
HOTSHOT’s formulation of strong sensory nerve 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% 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.
In a field study of an additional 288 athletes who used HOTSHOT for two weeks as part of their workout routine, 84% reported less muscle soreness. Of the athletes, 92% also reported less muscle pain and 88% said their next day workouts were better because they felt less muscle soreness.

How does HOTSHOT work?
HOTSHOT’s proprietary formulation of organic ingredients goes straight to the nerve. By stimulating sensory nerves located in your mouth, esophagus and stomach, HOTSHOT prevents neurons from misfiring and stops muscle cramps before they start. It’s like a reset button for your nervous system. Read more about how HOTSHOT workshere.
How is HOTSHOT different from other muscle soreness products?
HOTSHOT was designed to stop hyperactive motor neurons from firing, which is the cause muscle cramps and contributes to lingering muscle soreness. Several causes of muscle soreness exist, but HOTSHOT is uniquely designed to take on the portion of muscle soreness created by sensitive nerves becoming hyperactive and sending repetitive signals into your tiring muscles.
We asked 288 athletes to use HOTSHOT for two weeks as part of their workout routine, 84% of them told us they experienced less muscle soreness. Of the athletes, 92% also reported less muscle pain and 88% said their next day workouts were better because they felt less muscle soreness. Try it in training so you can keep pushing harder.

HOW TO USE
When should I drink HOTSHOT Sports Shots for Muscle Soreness and/or Recovery?
For muscle soreness prevention, we recommend you drink HOTSHOT 15 minutes before any exercise, workout or event. While it works best for this purpose as a pre-workout drink, lots of people also will use a Sports Shot to give them a boost mid-workout or post-workout and will still see recovery benefits. Keep one in your bag to drink when you need it!

When should I drink HOTSHOT Sports Shots for Muscle Cramps?
Depending on your need, you can drink HOTSHOT before, during or after a workout, or at the onset of a cramp. We recommend you drink one 15 minutes before any exercise where you want to keep cramps at bay, but you can also take one (or a 2nd one) on the onset of a cramp.
Because HOTSHOT begins to work within 30 seconds, you can drink one at the first sign of a spasm or cramp, and it will quickly stop and sooth an active cramp so you can quickly get back to your activity. Drinking a Sports Shot post workout or exercise will also help prevent post-race cramps and help you recover from the effects of an earlier cramp faster. Keep one in your bag or running belt to drink when you need it!

When should I drink HOTSHOT Sports Shots for Nocturnal Cramps?
You can drink HOTSHOT to either prevent nocturnal cramps from happening or to treat an active night cramp. To prevent, drink HOTSHOT after a tough workout/exercise when you would normally experience night cramping. HOTSHOT can prevent cramps from occurring for up to 8 hours.
Because HOTSHOT begins to work within 30 seconds by activating your nerves, you can also keep one on your bedside table to drink when needed to treat an active nocturnal cramp. Drink one at the first sign of a spasm or cramp, and it will quickly stop and sooth an active cramp so you can quickly get back to sleep.
If you keep on your nightstand just-in-case, we recommend you take the outer wrap off in advance to make it easier to drink the instant you need it.

Does HOTSHOT work for Menstrual Cramps?
HOTSHOT is the first of its kind – a special formulation of organic ingredients scientifically proven to stop muscle cramps where they start; the nerve. Although all ingredients are Generally Recognized as Safe (GRAS) by the FDA, HOTSHOT has not been specifically tested on non-exercise associated cramps.
That being said, we do often hear from female athletes and women in general who use HOTSHOT to prevent menstrual cramping — either preemptively or at onset of menstrual cramps. It’s best to experiment and see how our formula works for you. We’d love to hear your results! Contact us.
Should I drink HOTSHOT all at once?
Yes, if you want the best results, drink it like you would drink a shot. We spent years of testing to scientifically prove that a 1.7 oz bottle of HOTSHOT is what prevents and treats muscle cramps and helps reduce muscle soreness. 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.
How many HOTSHOT Sports Shots should I drink?
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.
How long does HOTSHOT’s effects last?
Up to 8 hours, but it depends on the level of engagement in the process.
Drink the whole bottle like a shot 15 minutes before, during or after a workout. If you are exercising heavily, you may need another. Many endurance athletes drink multiple during a long workout or event. It’s all natural and safe to drink several— if you’re going to use it during a race/game, we recommend you test it out beforehand during training.
Can I use HOTSHOT with other sports nutrition products?
Yes! HOTSHOT is a great teammate to many sports nutrition products. We believe it is still important to maintain adequate hydration and baseline nutrition, but HOTSHOT is there to take on your nerves like no other product on the market.
No matter what else you take, we recommend making sure to time out your nutrition regimen, so you don’t drink or eat anything a few minutes before and a few minutes after drinking HOTSHOT so as to not affect its performance.

I’m trying to track my HOTSHOT shipment, but not sure how.
You should receive an email from Team HOTSHOT after your order has been processed (up to 2-3 business days after placing your order) with tracking information from the carrier. Every carrier is different, so keep in mind that sometimes your tracking information may not be up to date if the carrier has not updated it yet. That’s OK – it almost always means that your order is farther along than what the tracking indicates.
