SCIENCE + VIOLENCE
What are ampules?
Ammonia inhalants, also known as smelling salts, are chemical compounds used to provide a cognitive boost or aid in regaining consciousness. First used by the early Romans, today ammonia inhalants are used by a wide variety of professional and collegiate level athletes. Best of all, they're legal and safe!
How it works
When crushed, ampules release a small amount of ammonia gas which, when inhaled, works to hijack the amygdala in your brain and trigger a "fight-or-flight" response. This causes an increase in respiratory function as well as an instantaneous boost of energy, alertness and focus.
Who uses ampules?
- Strongmen / strongwomen
- Olympic weightlifting
- Football players

The use of ammonia inhalants to revive people injured during sport is not recommended as it may inhibit or delay a proper and thorough neurological assessment by a healthcare professional.

They were a lot harsher than I thought and popped it right under my nose. Made me get the set done though! I go through stages where I don’t use ammonia at all and then during heavy blocks I tend to use them for top sets, so buying bottles that die after time wasn’t great for me. These I can keep and use when ready. Exactly what I needed
These are great. Every ampule keeps its strength and is consistent through every use. Great for competitions!
