The Drink That Stops Pain Fast
Soothe yourself with one sip!
For years, well-seasoned athletes and even the couch potatoes who lay down for too long, are plagued with muscle cramps or even worse— charlie horses.

Whether you are the devoted athlete or someone who’s just trying to lose 10 pounds, everyone has experienced a muscle twinge at some point that’s so intense it rallies an absurb crying fit. Thankfully, Nobel Prize-winning neuroscientist and endurance athlete, Rod MacKinnon, has created a formula to cease the onset of muscle cramping. But as we mentioned above, it’s not the actual muscle that’s causing the cramp. It’s the nerve!
For years, health experts and sports medicine doctors have been preaching that muscle cramps were caused by dehydration or a lack of vital electrolytes, the most common being potassium. After a decade’s worth of research, MacKinnon has discovered that the origin of the cramp derives from the nerve itself, so he concocted the perfect, spicy formula to wipe those pangs out.
