Smelling Salts....Are they worth the hype?

Smelling Salts....Are they worth the hype?
Athletes seeking performance improvements sometimes use smelling salts for their stimulating effect. Smelling salts trigger a sharp inhalation reflex, bringing in more air and oxygen. This may result in improved alertness.
Smelling salts are like a shot of adrenaline causing wakefulness, increased energy, and focus. It’s like a slap in the face. However, the effects of smelling salts are short lived, only lasting a few minutes that would be more than sufficient for an athlete. 
For powerlifters it has also been said that smelling salts can also increase strength when required for a heavy lift. This is one when the ammonia is inhaled the body enters fight mode rather then flight and prepares itself for what it is about to encounter, such as a heavy squat or deadlift. 
Smelling salts reduces the feeling of pain and tiredness, when someone is fatigued and tired they are not able to lift as much, with smelling salts it is said you can push past this boundary and lift for longer periods of time and harder. 
Ammonia can be used as both a reactive and preventative measure for lightheadedness and fainting.
