What's in DF-18?
Blood Flow Matrix
A collection of nutrients and co-factors working in synergy to improve blood flow, giving you mental clarity, focus, and stamina during the critical moments in your round.
Highly effective hydrators to help you manage heat stress and the physical endurance necessary for you so that your body can better manage heat stress and the physical endurance necessary for a successful round in the sun.
A small selection of high value micronutrients which improve focus, motor function, to help your mind stay focused and the body cope under pressure in the moments that matter most on the course.
- Arugula Extract
- Calcium Beta-Hydroxybutyrate
- Pink Salt
- Magnesium Glycinate
- Agmatine Sulfate
- Vitamin C
- Zinc Citrate
- Pantothenic acid (Calcium Pantothenate)
- Choline Citrate
- Thiamin HCL
Standardized to 10% Dietary Nitrates, this extract allows us to deliver the amount of clinically effective Dietary Nitrates in every serving. Dietary Nitrates can help regulate blood flow and vasodilation via its metabolite, Nitric Oxide. In this way, the dietary nitrates support the cardiovascular system, and help reduce fatigue, brain fog, etc.
Calcium is an essential mineral that our heart, muscles, and nerves need to function properly. Beta-Hydroxybutyrate is an exogenous ketone that acts as an alternative energy supply to blood sugar, and one which is readily utilized by the brain. In effect, this ingredient performs two jobs for the price of one!
Sodium is an essential mineral that regulates blood volume, blood pressure, osmotic equilibrium, and pH. Pink Salt provides the sodium you need in addition to beneficial trace minerals which ordinary table salt does not contain.
Magnesium is an essential mineral/electrolyte and is a co-factor in over 300 enzyme systems in the human body, including blood pressure regulation, energy creation, and proper nerve function; and deficiencies have been linked to everything from ADHD and Depression. Glycine is an amino acid and neurotransmitter that is at once stimulating and calming in the brain.
Potassium is an essential mineral that helps to prevent muscle cramps and helps maintain fluid balance inside our cells. In concert with Sodium, Potassium is important for a proper functioning nervous system and also helps regulate blood pressure.
Agmatine is a metabolite of L-Arginine that has a multitude of possible benefits for the human body and brain. For purposes of DF18, Agmatine is useful in promoting and regulating Nitric Oxide production, as well as promoting beta-endorphin production, which helps to regulate behavior in response to pain, stress, or fear.
Taurine is an organic acid that acts as a lipid/membrane stabilizer in the body and can aid various antioxidant defense systems, contributing to a wide variety of health benefits. In the case of hydration, Taurine is an osmoeffector and helps our bodies manage fluid-electrolyte balance in our cells.
Glycerol is a simple polyol compound found in nature which, when taken in a larger amount, will lower blood serum osmolality (That's a fancy way to say it helps maintain fluid levels in the blood and tissue!).
L-Tyrosine is an amino acid the body uses to produce noradrenaline and dopamine (both neurotransmitters), and evidence suggests that it reduces stress during moments of acute stress.
Often referred to as the “King of Ayurvedic herbs,” Ashwagandha’s ability to reduce stress and anxiety is well-known, with additional evidence suggesting it can modestly improve a host of other desirable effects including: modest improvements to strength output, glucose metabolism, and lowering cortisol levels.
Technically a prodrug for L-cysteine, NAC reliably increases the stores of Glutathione in the body. Glutathione is an antioxidant, made endogenously, which is present in every cell and tissue within the human body as part of the “glutathione system.”
L-Theanine is a non-essential amino acid that is present in green tea in significant quantities. It is able to reduce stress, anxiety, and cause a person to relax without feeling sedated. Studies have also noted improvements to attention and executive function.
Though similar to caffeine, with similar benefits to mood, motor function, and cognition - Theobromine does not overly stimulate the body’s central nervous system. It also encourages healthy blood flow to the brain.
An essential vitamin with antioxidant properties that are immune-boosting, neuroprotective, and beneficial for blood flow.
Zinc is an essential mineral that is needed for a multitude of roles in the body, including antioxidant enzymes, brain function, our immune system, and the recovery of muscle tissue after physical activity. Given that zinc is lost from sweat, athletes must take care to replenish zinc regularly if they are to stay in their best shape.
Pantothenic acid (Calcium Pantothenate)
Vitamin B5 is important for healthy energy and production, in particular fat metabolism.
Vitamin B2 is important for the body when it makes energy from food.
Choline and citrate will both contribute to acetylcholine synthesis in the brain. Acetylcholine is an important neurotransmitter and neuromodulator, playing an important role in attention, memory, and motivation. Additionally, Choline Citrate may also aid in the absorption of magnesium when taken together.
Vitamin B1 which the body needs to use carbohydrates as energy. Without it, a person’s nervous system will cease to function.
Also known as vitamin B9, we chose the folate form due it’s greater bioavailability compared to folic acid. It is important for carbohydrate metabolism, red and white blood cell production, and controlling homocysteine levels.
Methylcobalamin is the natural form of vitamin B12, which makes it much more bioavailable than its synthetic counterpart, Cyanocobalamin. It is important for a host of systems in the body but is especially beneficial in glucose metabolism (i.e. energy production).
Biotin works like an essential cofactor that is necessary for gene expression, cell growth, and metabolism.

Do right by your heart
Did you know that golf courses are the fifth most commonplace for people to suffer from sudden cardiac arrest? According to the American Heart Association, a golfer is one of over 380,000 people in the United States each year to suffer from out-of-hospital sudden cardiac arrest and less than seven percent survive.
Because key ingredients in DF-18 help to improve blood flow, talking it daily may contribute to improved heart and cardiovascular health, support a healthy immune system, and a general sense of well-being.
