A powdered sports drink that you mix with water or your favorite electrolyte drink, which you take before, during and after exercise, to give you increased energy, endurance and improved recovery time. Hornet Juice works as a trigger for the oxidation of fat, which provides you with an abundant and long lasting source of energy.

It is a unique combination of 17 amino acids, developed after extensive research of the giant hornet and its amazing ability to fly 50 miles a day. Hornet Juice replicates a mixture secreted by the hornet larvae, which the adult hornet ingests to provide them with the energy they need for their incredible flights of endurance. Athletes will enjoy improved energy, endurance, speed and recovery from taking Hornet Juice.

Any participant in any exercise or sport will benefit from taking Hornet Juice. The performance enhancing aspects of Hornet Juice will benefit athletes of all types and abilities, from weekend warrior, serious age-group competitor, seasoned pro and even Olympic gold medallists.

Whilst all athletes are different and respond in different ways, it is reasonable to expect a positive benefit from Hornet Juice the first time you use it. Whether this happens 30 minutes into your workout or the day after varies among athletes and may depend on the type of workout undertaken. There is no “build-up” of Hornet Juice required in your body’s system before it works, it is designed to have immediate effect, even for the first-time user.
Electrolyte drinks and most other sport drinks are designed to replace electrolytescarbohydrates and other substances lost during exercise. The energy effect of Hornet Juice is not based on adding lost electrolytes and carbohydrates. Instead, the amino acid formula in Hornet Juice helps the body to burn the energy it already has for fuel. In other words, Hornet Juice encourages the body to burn its stores of fat for energy. Fat is the body’s most abundant source of energy. Glycogen is the body’s other source of energy, which is more readily usable and in much shorter supply than fat. Whilst Hornet Juice will help preserve your glycogen stores (by using fat for fuel instead of glycogen) during exercise you must replace lost glycogen by consuming carbohydrates. Remember that Hornet Juice has been designed to complement your existing sports nutrition program and not replace it. Do not confuse Hornet Juice with being just another Gatorade, GU or Amino Vital – which are designed to replace lost energy. Hornet Juice has a unique effect that is not present in any other product in the marketplace that we are aware of.

Remember that if you exercise for long duration you will need to use Hornet Juice in conjunction with electrolyte/carb drinkssports barsenergy gels etc. Some athletes want to replace their existing sports nutrition solely with Hornet Juice, which we strongly advise against for endurance athletes. Hornet Juice is a trigger for the oxidation of fat, which encourages your body to utilize its store of fat for energy. This differs from traditional sports food and drink, which works as a fuel (ie: their energy effect comes from replacing glycogen stores that are lost through exercise, whereas the Hornet Juice energy effect comes from using your body’s fat supply).

One serving of Hornet Juice can cost as little as US$1.80.

We offer free shipping worldwide with no handling fee or other hidden charges, plus an unconditional money-back guarantee.

Remember that you only need to take Hornet Juice when you exercise and not every day as is the case with many other supplements, irrespective of whether you’re working out or not.

Mix one 15g packet of Hornet Juice with 250ml/8.5fl.oz. chilled water, juice, or your favorite electrolyte/sports drink. Stir or shake it well, until the amino acid powder is fully diluted. It is no problem if you want to dilute Hornet Juice further by adding one serving to your water bottle.

However, try to avoid mixing Hornet Juice with high protein drinks as its effectiveness will be reduced. Mixing it with endurance sports drinks that contain some protein, like Accelerade, is fine.

Hornet Juice is extremely versatile and can be taken before, during and after any physical activity.

For prolonged physical activity take one packet of Hornet Juice every one and a half hours.

Click on the links below for instructions on how to take Hornet Juice in the following sports:

For best results take Hornet Juice 30 minutes before activity and ideally on an empty stomach (usually 2 – 4 hours after your last meal). This makes Hornet Juice ideal to drink before your morning workout, when your stomach is empty.

If you are used to taking in food before your workout, consume a light meal ofcarbohydrates with Hornet Juice.

Due to the natural ingredients in the Hornet Juice powder it may produce a residue either at the bottom of the container or on the surface of the drink. This is normal and does not mean there is a problem with the quality of product.

Hornet Juice works best during physical activity, which is when your body fat is converted to energy. Therefore it is not necessary to take Hornet Juice during your rest/recovery days. However, taking Hornet Juice the day after a race or hard training session will greatly help to speed up your body’s recovery, so you are in good shape for your next workout.
Each sachet contains two 15g servings. One 15g packet will make one serving, however you can dilute the taste by adding more water or other drink if you choose.
Hornet Juice tastes like a mild fruit drink with a berry flavor that is easily palatable and unlikely to cause stomach upset, even during intense exercise.
You need energy to perform in any type of sport or athletic activity. Hornet Juice helps your body use your most efficient source of energy – fat.

The Hornet Juice effect is not produced by a single ingredient, but by the unique combination of amino acids. This distinctive mixture triggers various positive body functions that produce a significant, enhancing physical effect.

Hornet Juice works by activating the metabolism of fat for energy right from the start of your physical activity. Your body has two primary sources of energy – glycogen and fat stored by the body. Glycogen is easily burned in a short period of time and serves as a source of stamina in events that require a burst of energy. The disadvantage with this is the limited amount of glycogen reserves your body has. Your stores of glycogen are not sufficient to provide energy during exercise of long duration. Conversely, fat is stored in abundance by the body, although it is generally difficult to convert into energy, requiring large amounts of oxygen to do so. Hornet Juice works by quickly converting your body fat into a supply of energy during exercise. To learn more about how Hornet Juice works please click here

Whilst Hornet Juice is performance enhancing, none of its ingredients are on WADA’s list of banned substances. A dope test on athletes will not check for amino acids since amino acids are originally contained in the body. In fact, amino acids compromise 20% of the human body. There is no point doing a dope test for something that already exists in all of our bodies. More
Sure, you can mix Hornet Juice with your favorite sports or juice drink. However, try to avoid mixing Hornet Juice with high protein drinks as its effectiveness will be reduced. Mixing it with endurance sports drinks that contain some protein, like Accelerade, is fine.

Remember that if you exercise for long duration you will need to use Hornet Juice in conjunction with electrolyte/carb drinkssports barsenergy gels etc. Some athletes want to replace their existing sports nutrition solely with Hornet Juice, which we strongly advise against for endurance athletes. Hornet Juice is a trigger for the oxidation of fat, which encourages your body to utilize its store of fat for energy. This differs from traditional sports food and drink, which works as a fuel (ie: their energy effect comes from replacing glycogen stores that are lost through exercise, whereas the Hornet Juice energy effect comes from using your body’s fat supply).

This is not recommended because the benefits derived from Hornet Juice during endurance exercise will decrease if Hornet Juice is combined with other amino acid/protein-rich foods. Ideally, you should try and avoid protein rich food and drink for two hours before and after taking Hornet Juice. If however protein is an essential part of your existing training/competition nutrition plan you might like to experiment with the best way to integrate Hornet Juice to achieve optimum results. Mixing it with endurance sports drinks that contain some protein, like Accelerade, is fine.
Burning fat produces sweat. Hornet Juice utilizes the fat in your body as an energy source when you start to exercise. Sweat is the result of the conversion of fat into energy.
Yes, by all means! Hornet Juice accelerates the metabolism of fat. The unique combination of the amino acids in Hornet Juice helps burn your body’s store of fat for energy. Hornet Juice has been developed for those who are serious about their sport rather than the weight loss market, which is saturated with so-called miracle products making all sorts of claims. However, we stand behind the effectiveness of Hornet Juice as an aid to losing weight and burning fat. Of course to achieve this you need to exercise and eat a low-fat, balanced diet.

Amazingly, yes! A spin-off benefit of Hornet Juice is that it really helps to cure and/or prevent hangovers resulting from excessive alcohol intake. If you are expecting a big night of drinking you will minimize the discomfort of a hangover by taking one packet of Hornet Juice before you start drinking, followed by another packet before you go to bed and you will find yourself feeling much better the next day. In addition to giving you increased energy Hornet Juice improves the function of the liver, assisting it to process the alcohol in your system.

The hangover after excessive alcohol intake occurs as a result of alcohol metabolism to acetaldehyde in the body. Acetaldehyde is alcohol’s primary and most toxic metabolite. Acetaldehyde is a highly toxic compound that builds up within your body when you consume alcohol. The amino acids glutamine and alanine activate gluconeogenesis (the generation of glucose), thus expediting the metabolism of alcohol and acetaldehyde. Branched Chain Amino Acids (valine, leucine, isoleucine), arginine, and glutamine boost the liver function, thus promoting alcohol metabolism. Hornet Juice contains all these amino acids, which if you consume before/after drinking and the day after, will aid your liver function and relieve the discomfort of your hangover.

As athletes you should be aware that drinking alcohol will impair your performance.

Hornet Juice is effectively a trigger for the oxidation of fat. It is not a substance that co-metabolizes with fat-oxidized metabolites; in other words, it is not a fuel. Therefore you do not need to take excessive amounts of Hornet Juice to increase fat burning. One or two sachets of Hornet Juice are all that is necessary for everyday use to trigger fat oxidation. However, if you are training or competing in a endurance event for a long period of time, then taking one packet of Hornet Juice every one and a half hours is recommended for the duration of the event.

We are not aware of any athletes who have had problems from using Hornet Juice. Our research has not found any evidence of adverse side effects. Hornet Juice is formulated from amino acids. Amino acids are the fundamental compounds of life. There would be no life – birth, survival or evolution – if amino acids had harmful side-effects. The only side effects that we hope you will experience are increased energy and improved recovery.
Hornet Juice contains a synthesized mixture of the amino acids found in the Japanese giant hornets. Hornet Juice contains only the best quality amino acids.
Yes you can. Hornet Juice does not contain any of the venom/allergens that are in wasp stings. Hornet Juice only contains the essential amino acids that are found in the saliva of the hornet larvae that is responsible for giving the adult hornet its endurance and energy.
No, Hornet Juice does not contain the stimulants found in other energy drinks such as caffeine and guarana. Hornet Juice is not an energy drink (like Red Bull et al) but is a sports drink that is most effective when consumed before, during and after physical activity. Energy drinks that contain caffeine (like Red Bull et al) are diuretics (meaning they cause dehydration) and therefore may not be suitable for athletes.
Vaam is an amino acid based product manufactured and sold in Japan. It was developed by Dr Takahashi Abe, based on his research of the Japanese giant hornets, designed to help the body convert fat into energy. Advances in technology, amino acid research and exercise physiology have allowed the inventors of Hornet Juice to develop what they consider to be an enhanced product to Vaam. However, we still consider Vaam to be an excellent product for improving athletic performance too.
Customer satisfaction is our top priority. If, for whatever reason after using Hornet Juice, you are not happy with your purchase then we’ll refund your money….no questions asked.

We will not even ask you to return any unused servings. We realise this is a ploy common with many money-back guarantees, but not our one. Returning unused packets can be an expensive and time consuming exercise, principally designed to discourage you from asking for a refund in the first place.

There are no questions asked or other conditions attached to the Hornet Juice refund policy. We want you to feel assured that you can try this revolutionary sports drink completely risk free.

If you find that your athletic performance is not stung by Hornet Juice then simply email us with your name, approximate date of purchase and we’ll process your refund promptly.

Absolutely! Many of our customers are in the armed forces. Some use Hornet Juice to assist them with their physical training tests and others use it before venturing out on patrol.
