More Race Caps Supreme Testimonials


If you're not taking Race Caps Supreme, you simply are not getting the most out of your training! Several important substrates ("spark plugs"), such as Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) and idebenone, are crucial for the efficient production of energy from your food and oxygen intake. Exercise rapidly depletes these important nutrients. Taking Race Caps Supreme is like putting fresh spark plugs in your body, ensuring consistent, efficient energy production. In addition, CoQ10 and idebenone, as well as other ingredients in Race Caps Supreme, are superb antioxidants and key nutrients for cardiovascular health (idebenone is considered by many experts to be an important anti-aging nutrient, perhaps the most important one yet discovered). Other suppliers offer anemic attempts at an endurance supplement, but Race Caps Supreme stands alone as a safe, comprehensive, and effective formula promoting higher energy levels, increased endurance, and improved recovery. If there's one supplement to buy, this is it.

Although it's hard to give any of the ingredients even a slightly lower status, arguably the key players in the formula have to be Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) and Idebenone. These two nutrients are the primary substrates involved in the Electron Transport Chain process of ATP production by the mitochondria.

Mitochondria are micro organelles (little organs) found in virtually all cells in the human body, except red blood cells. The 20-2500 mitochondria per cell produce the majority of the body's energy (ATP) by means of an intricate and complex process called cellular respiration. The production of ATP within the mitochondria involves two metabolic cycles known as the tricarboxylic acid (TCA) cycle, which is also called the "Krebs" or "citric acid" cycle, and the oxidative phosphorylation electron transport chain, commonly abbreviated as ETC.

CoQ10 is a vital catalyst, perhaps THE primary substrate involved in the mitochondrial electron transport chain. CoQ10's importance cannot be understated because quite simply, without it, the chain of cellular energy production is broken. This is key not only for athletic performance but also for maintaining cardiovascular and brain health, and strong immunity. For both athletic performance and general health applications, there is simply no question that the athlete MUST supplement with CoQ10.

Idebenone, also called hydroxydecyl Q, is an analogue of CoQ10 and a superb compliment to this remarkable nutrient. In fact, some experts even suggest it to be even more powerful in action than CoQ10. In essence, Idebenone extends the already powerful benefits of CoQ10 and under hypoxic (low oxygen) conditions Idebenone's ATP generating capabilities are even superior to CoQ10.

For supporting the TCA (or "Krebs") cycle, the RACE CAPS SUPREME formula supplies a precise amount Calcium, Magnesium, Potassium KCI. These are the elemental minerals chelated to Krebs Cycle Intermediates (Malate, Citrate, Aspartate, Lysinate, Glycinate). With this KCI donation now a part of the formula, RACE CAPS SUPREME provides key substrates to support and enhance both metabolic cycles (the Electron Transport Chain and the Tricarboxylic Acid (TCA) cycle, which again, is also called the "Krebs" cycle) involved in ATP production. Additional Alpha ketoglutaric acid has been added to the formula to provide even more support for enhancing the Krebs Cycle.


Vitamin E, while not directly involved in the cellular respiration process, is a vital component in the RACE CAPS SUPREME formula. The naturally derived, easily assimilated succinate form of this mineral supports CoQ10 and Idebenone in neutralizing free radicals, which are a naturally occurring metabolic by-product of energy production. Succinates are also a key component in the TCA (or "Krebs") cycle.


A precise blend of the Trimethylglycine (TMG), inosine, and glycerol phosphate provide benefits for enhancing oxygen utilization, optimizing fats-for-fuels capabilities, and for providing additional support for energy production and acid buffering.

TMG has been shown to perform lipotropic activity (fatty-acid utilization for energy production), it has been used to treat muscular weakness and degeneration, it is a powerful antioxidant, and a nutrient which primarily acts as a methyl donor, enhancing the transport of oxygen to muscle tissues.

Inosine, also known as an anti-fatigue nutrient, is a naturally occurring metabolic product that is readily utilized by the body. Inosine increases the oxygen-carrying capacity of the blood, allowing more oxygen to be delivered to the muscles, thereby reducing fatigue.

Phosphates (in the form of glycerol phosphate) are used in the muscle mitochondrial cells for the production of energy and are also beneficial for buffering excess acidity.

Efficient Absorption Assured

To maximize nutrient absorption, RACE CAPS SUPREME contains a potent blend of various digestive aids. One of these is a proprietary formula called the Enzyme Enhancement System and the other is the well-researched standardized black pepper extract called Bioperine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The New Me! Getting ready for my training swims/rides/runs has changed me forever with this incredible product and I get so excited to see where I can go with Race Caps in my nutrition bag. Along with the Anti-fatigue Caps, it doesn't matter where I am mentally, when I take the Race Caps, everything seems to come into focus and it truly helped me relax before conquering my first Iron distance triathlon because I knew the energy was going to be there with this product each and every hour! My wife thought I would need a medic and a cot after my Iron distance Tri, but with my Hammer products, I was standing strong and could have gone longer! My wife now uses it on her long runs and we are growing into a total Hammer family!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great I have used these for the past couple of years for marathon training, races as well as playing ice hockey games.  If I forget to take them before an event or training session my legs cramp and are sore afterwards.  Race caps supreme really help get rid of the cramps during races and games.  I always have a good stock at home to make sure I don't run out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from RCS will help take you to the next level I experimented with RCS last year during my kayak racing season. Most of my races are between 1 to 2 hours and RCS helps me finish each race with plenty of energy. RCS aslo allows me to practice harder and longer. RCS is a must have each day. This is a great product if you're looking to take your training to the next level.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Race Caps Reign Supreme I recently bought Race Caps Supreme as a long time user of 1st Endurance Race Caps. In 2013, I ran 17 different endurance events, ranging from 5ks to Marathons; even qualifying and being accepted as a participant in Boston in 2014. Personally, I have found Race Caps Supreme to be a superior product and have noticed a marked increase in stamina/endurance and energy. I rarely have issues with recovery; even when I push pretty hard during long training runs. However, it seems to me that this product has helped when I felt a bit rundown after a 20+ mile run. My experience has sold me on the quality of Hammer products and their customer service in unsurpassed. I will continue to order Hammer products as my primary supplement source.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Race Caps Supreme Race Caps Supreme are one of the cornerstones on my training supplements. This is my second batch after a Hammer athlete recommended them to me. I take one a day, regardless of whether it's a training day or not.  I also use the Anti-Fatigue Caps, taking 2 per day, and hour before workout, with a second dose if I pull a double session later in the day.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from more energy, endurance and recovery I love the effects of RCS - I notice more energy and improved endurance during my workouts and my recovery time has been improved massively.  I've been using this product for 26 years and have no plans to stop.  I recommend them for anyone over the age of 30.
