About

Intense Flavors for Intense Individuals! Our formula was initially designed to improve cognition, focus and reaction times for those we depend on most in a time of need. While it takes around 20 minutes for the caffeine in any energy shot to get into your system, the men and women that get awoken to care and protect us in the middle of the night need immediate results. That is where 5-Alarm comes in, the flavors and scents alone have proven to cause immediate increases in mental and physical performance.

OUR STORY

Our story literally starts on the stovetop of my kitchen. I had overheard several fire fighters talking about using smelling salts to wake themselves up when a call comes in during the night and they were in a dead sleep. This got me thinking, I knew caffeine took about 15-20 minutes to hit the brain and start working, but what if I could combine an intense smelling agent that was edible and palatable. So the research began and fortunately I did not have to rely on anecdotal evidence because there were multiple University-backed research studies that had taken hundreds of scents and compared how each one affected the participants. Furthermore, once the effective scents were identified, the researchers then began to look at performance-enhancing capabilities within specific groups, like athletes, video gamers, students and commuters.

OUR MISSION

Provide a faster, more effective and better tasting energy shot, while also helping to advance the science of burn treatment through giving.

THE SCIENCE BEHIND OUR FLAVORS

RESEARCH PROVES THAT SIMPLY INHALING THE PEPPERMINT OR CINNAMON SCENTS HAS IMMEDIATE BENEFITS TO AN INDIVIDUAL.

Cinnamon

We created our Smolder (Cinnamon) shot based on multiple studies that showed increased in mental performance: Cinnamon has been shown to improve focus, concentration, mental awareness and lower frustration. Even chewing on cinnamon-flavored gum can be enough to increase your brain activity. Cinnamon can also stimulate neural pathways, which can help slow the progression of Alzheimer’s and dementia.

Add it to apple cider, hot chocolate or tea for an extra kick!

Peppermint

We created our peppermint “Extinguish” shot based on multiple studies that showed increases in mental performance:
A study published in the 2008 “International Journal of Neuroscience” found that participants exposed to peppermint oil experienced enhanced memory and processing speeds. Peppermint also increased their alertness while helping them maintain a sense of calm. In 2006, Dr. Bryan Raudenbush from Wheeling Jesuit University found that drivers exposed to peppermint scent were less frustrated, anxious and fatigued and stayed more alert after driving for prolonged periods.

Tasting peppermint or smelling peppermint affects the type of stimulation you experience. An article published in 2005 in the “North American Journal of Psychology” found that when participants chewed peppermint-flavored gum, they experienced significantly improved memory and worked faster. However, when they smelled peppermint, memory improved only slightly. If you are taking a test or working on a complex project, tasting peppermint may improve your memory and give you the energy you need to complete the task at hand!

The most recent studies have shown direct benefits to gamers, so if you are trying to rule the digital world try a 5-Alarm!

For a peppermint patty at the office toss one in a hot chocolate or spike your afternoon coffee for an extra kick!
