    What's in DF-18?


    This unique blend of nutrients works together to enhance your body's production of Nitric Oxide. Why is that important? Nitric Oxide is a crucial molecule that helps your blood vessels relax and expand, allowing more oxygen and nutrients to reach your muscles and brain. On the golf course, this translates into additional energy and endurance, especially vital when you're taking on the challenging back nine


    Electrolytes, like sodium, potassium, and magnesium, are perfectly balanced for a 4 - 6 hour round of golf. They're paired with Hydromax© (glycerol), which boosts your body's ability to hold onto water, helping you stay well-hydrated and protecting you from dehydration throughout your game.


    A handpicked list of vital micronutrients, designed to sharpen your concentration and enhance your swing, helping you keep your cool and deliver your best performance when it counts the most on the golf course.

    “Back nine blowups happen all the time, we’ve all been there. Our ‘faults’ add up but truth be told, it’s not always the players fault. I’ve been looking for years for something to solve for this. I’ve finally found it.”

    - Adam Kolloff, 2021 NEPGA Teacher of the Year


    What is DF-18?

    DF-18 is a specially formulated blend of herbs, extracts, amino acids, vitamins and minerals, that is consumed before teeing-off. DF-18 eliminates the drag, loss of focus, and dehydration which often occurs during 18-holes of golf.

    Why does DF-18 cost more per serving than other hydration products?

    DF-18 costs more per serving than many brands of drink mixes you might find because it is a premium product that does more for longer than any other product. 

    Here are a few reasons why DF-18 is worth it: 

    • 1 serving = 1 round of golf  

    Most stick packs you find will recommend 2-3 servings per round and likely only serve one function (like hydration).  Depending on which brands you buy, you could in fact be paying the same or even more for something less effective/comprehensive than DF-18

    • 4 products in 1: Hydration, Energy, Focus, and Recovery.  

    Other brands tend to sell you these benefits in separate products entirely, which is not only inconvenient but costly as well.  We wanted to do better than that.

    • 22 unique ingredients (16g total), none of which are sugars or fillers

    Looking at the nutrition facts of other products, you’ll likely discover there’s very little in their formulas once things like sugar have been removed.  With DF-18, there are likely many things in your vitamin cabinet that you could stop taking because it’s in the product already.

    • A high-powered wellness product

    One aspect often overlooked about our product is how our ingredients are exceptional for your health and wellness.  We encourage you to go to our ingredients page to see what we have, but as an example: the amount of heart healthy dietary nitrates per serving of DF-18 is the same as you’d get from roughly 14g of powdered Beet Root.  

    How do I know if DF-18 is right for me?

    DF-18 can benefit all golfers, young or old, professional or amateur, as a health or performance product.  Our customers report better energy and focus throughout the most demanding rounds of golf but also feel compounded benefits from daily use.

    How is this different from other hydration products?

    1) DF-18 is not a hydration product; It is a golf performance product that contains over 16 grams of active ingredients which perform various tasks for the player across a 4-6 hour period...including hydration.  It will help hydrate better than the leading brands can, plus help you focus, and support your stamina on the course - all without sugar or caffeine.

    2) DF-18 is designed as a convenient single-serving solution.  Other products often suggest 2-3 servings during a round.  With DF-18, drink one before the round then continue with pure water as needed.  DF-18 will help make sure that you stay properly hydrated so that you can perform at your best.

    How do I use DF-18?

    DF-18 is meant to be a pre-round ritual that you take when you tee-off or just before. Just mix with 20-24oz of cold water (depending on preference) or your favorite smoothie, drink across 20-30 minutes, and enjoy your round.  You will not need to take another.

    How can I learn more about DF-18 ingredients?

    You can go to our Ingredients page for high level descriptions of what DF-18 does and all the ingredients that facilitate them.

    Why does it taste kind of salty?

    One area that DF-18 supports is hydration - and hydration is about much more than water.  Aside from many other important functions, sodium and potassium are essential for maintaining the “Fluid-Electrolyte balance” of your body.  Because of this we needed to include a good amount of both as a way of preloading for the time it will spend playing in the sun.  Studies show that when you start to lose even 2% water weight, a variety of performance measures begin to fall - power, accuracy, distance gauging, etc.  If the product is too salty for your liking, we suggest adding more water to dilute the taste, or even blending DF-18 with your favorite smoothie.

    Can I take it everyday?

    Yes - despite being designed for as a pre-round solution, DF-18 is an all-round healthy and nutritious product.  Try DF-18 first thing in the morning or as a way of getting through a long day on the job.  It’ll help you be a healthier version of yourself.

    Is there added sugar?

    DF-18 is Sugar Free!

    Is this similar to a pre-workout?

    In many ways, yes.   DF-18 is effective for anyone with muscle-endurance needs.

    Cyclists, hikers, tennis and pickle ball players, martial artists, etc.

    We are a golf brand today, but our product lends itself to many walks of life.

    Is there any caffeine?

    DF-18 is Caffeine Free.

    Why is my pee yellow?

    Anyone who has taken a good multivitamin is familiar with this experience. The bright yellow is due to the inclusion of Riboflavin (vitamin B2), which the body uses to help with cellular respiration. DF-18 not only is a performance product, it checks off a lot of essential vitamins and minerals.

    What is different from this and a green drink?

    DF-18 could in fact be considered a “green drink” but made with a very specific purpose in mind.  Most “green drinks” by comparison are little more than glorified multivitamins. One serving of DF-18 has close to 5 cups of raw arugula.
