What are smelling salts / ammonia inhalants?
You've heard those crazy stories about radical feats of strength, such as a mother lifting a car off her pinned toddler. How is this possible? Due to the incredible effect that adrenaline has on human performance. Adrenaline is released in fight or flight responses, and athletes use it to fight, to set new records, to out perform their bests, and take their training to a whole new level. The ammonia gas causes irritation in your nasal passage which triggers the fight or flight response and subsequent adrenaline release. The extra adrenaline that smelling salts / ammonia inhalants provide allow us to unlock a physical performance we are capable of, but unable to tap into without it.
