How it works

Smelling salts release ammonia gas which triggers an inhalation reflex by irritating t he mucous membranes of the nose and lungs- Essentially it causes the muscles that control breathing to work a lot faster.

As a response, the body reacts to ammonia, the sharp inhalation reflex brings in more oxygen which improves alertness and increase brain activity and reactivation of the sympathetic nervous system which is often referred to as the ‘flight or fight response’.
