Boron isn't as well known as other minerals such as calcium, magnesium, and phosphorus, but they can't do their job without it. Boron is vital for the production of certain anabolic hormones that help maintain healthy bone mineral mass and ensure complete recovery from high-volume training. A boron supplement is a valuable addition to your supplement regimen during periods of peak training and racing, when you are at risk for depletion.
The trace mineral chromium has profound effects on both general health and athletic performance. By supplementing your post workout/race fuel with chromium polynicotinate (not to be confused with chromium picolinate or other forms of this mineral) enhances recovery because it helps to increase the rate of glycogen synthesis. Additionally, chromium supplements play a vital role in energy production and the synthesis of glucose, fatty acids, and amino acids. Considered by many experts to be the "master nutrient" for controlling blood sugar, chromium is an important nutrient for everyone, especially diabetic athletes, athletes with hypoglycemia, and for anyone wishing to maintain optimal weight. Taking a Chromemate capsule with meals can help you maintain consistent energy throughout your day and eliminate the dreaded mid-afternoon fade.

Take 2 to 4 Hammer Anti-Fatigue capsules one hour prior to training, and you'll stay strong and prevent cramps in multi-hour events. Thoroughly tested over several years in the most extreme athletic endurance events, Anti-Fatigue Caps help remove fatigue-causing, energy-robbing ammonia. During extended endurance exercise the body accumulates excess ammonia from protein metabolism, which interferes with glycogen production, disrupting energy output. Anti-Fatigue Caps are a one-of-a-kind product combining three well-known ammonia-scavenging nutrients. By cleaning up the waste products of combustion, you’ll ride stronger for longer!
Hammer's Digest Caps will help you realize that electrolytes, proteins, and carbohydrates are not the only important supplements. A healthy digestive flow aids in regular waste elimination and keeps the system clean and light, so the only thing you'll feel in your stomach on race day is butterflies.
Hammer's Endurance Amino is ideal to use hourly during efforts that extend beyond 2 hours and post-workout. This gluten-free capsule decreases your perception of fatigue and increases cognitive performance as well as builds, maintains and repairs lean muscle mass. The foundation of Endurance Amino is the 3 Branched Chain Amino Acids (l-leucine, l-isoleucine, l-valine), which help delay exercise-induced and nervous system-induced fatigue to improve immune system reaction and enhance recovery. You also get l-alanine, which your liver converts into glucose, which the bloodstream transports to the muscles for energy. Additionally, l-alanine aids in the synthesis of vitamin B5, which is needed for protein, fat, and carbohydrate metabolism.
Electrolyte depletion can quickly knock you out of a competition, which is why Hammer Nutrition makes Endurolytes Capsules. Because sodium alone cannot replenish electrolytes, this pill provides all the right minerals for the prevention of cramping, spasms, and other exercise-related issues. You'll enjoy enhanced endurance from effective electrolyte replenishment for all body types under all conditions.
Designed for the harshest conditions, as well as other variables that require higher amounts of specific electrolytic minerals, Endurolytes Extreme has you covered! With each capsule containing 300mg of sodium chloride (salt) and 75mg of potassium per capsule—three times more than the original Endurolytes formula, yet still in a balanced 4:1 ratio—Endurolytes Extreme is guaranteed to resolve even the toughest electrolyte replenishment challenges, especially:
- During unusually hot-weather events
- If you're not acclimated to the weather conditions
- If you consume a high-sodium diet
- If you are "physiologically predisposed" to cramping (e.g., if you have extremely high sweat rates)
- During early season training, a time when fitness levels are low, resulting in higher mineral losses
If one of more of these categories describes you or your circumstances, Endurolytes Extreme is the product you need.
Perhaps no other area of fueling can drop you out of competition as quickly as electrolyte depletion. That's where Endurolytes Fizz shines. And because sodium alone cannot replenish electrolytes, these rapidly dissolving effervescent tablets provide all the right minerals in balance for the prevention of cramping, spasms, and other exercise-related issues. You'll enjoy enhanced endurance from effective, complete, balanced electrolyte replenishment for all body types under all conditions.
The body relies on ATP, a major chemical compound, for its energy needs. During high-intensity exercise, the body's ATP stores are rapidly depleted and cannot be replenished quickly enough by normal means. So when attacking the pack or climbing a long and steady hill your body must have the goods to perform. And that's exactly where Energy Surge shines. Pop a couple tablets beforehand and your body will thank you!
Use HEED as your one-source fuel supply whenever and wherever a sports drink is your preferred choice. Hammer's top-of-the-line fuel utilizes an all-complex-carbohydrate formula as opposed to simple sugars, for consistent, long-lasting energy that won't cause energy fluctuations or stomach distress. Its robust electrolyte profile ensures proper hydration while L-carnosine delivers superb lactic-acid buffering to reduce muscle soreness. All this with a never syrupy, subtle flavor, and no foul after taste, either!
