Zone Elite


A step up from Zone original. Zone Elite will hit you a bit harder and will have slightly longer effects. 


Ammonia Smelling salts for weight lifting have been used for decades in boxing, lifting, and other professional sports. 

Smelling Salts are safe and effective if used properly. Smelling salts deliver a high potency of ammonia gas, opening the blood vessels and creating a rush of oxygen to the brain which creates an instance sense of clarity and focus.  

Zone Smelling Salts come in a powder form (ammonium carbonate ((NH4)2CO3H2O)).  When water is introduced with the ammonium carbonate, ammonia gas is released.

Look at our activation method above to determine if you need to activate your salts, or if it is already done for you.

Give Zone Smelling Salts a try and hit your next PR.


Users of zone smelling salts must also be aware of the following:

• Understand the risks involved with smelling salts.
• Do not abuse or misuse smelling salts.
• Keep smelling salts away from children.
• Avoid contact with eyes, mouth or open wounds.
• Start at a full arm’s length away.
• Do not use if allergic or pregnant.
• Consult a physician before use.
• Use with caution and only as directed.
• Do not use in conjunction with alcohol consumption


Shelf Life: Around 6 months. Once initially opened the lifespan of smelling salts can last anywhere from 1-6 months depending how many times they get used/opened.

The more often fresh oxygen is reintroduced into the bottle the faster it’ll dry out and lose potency.*


Make sure to give the bottle a tap and shake before each use, this will allow the ammonia gas to rise to the top, giving you a clean and potent hit.
