Caffeine Spray ONGO

Caffeine Spray ONGO is the first of it’s kind. The easy to carry bottle is the most convenient way to awaken the brain. Whether it be to get focused on a workout, competition or get work done at your job, ONGO is the way.

This isn’t a body shaking pre-workout. You don’t get the jitters. In what to expect they say you “feel bright.” That is probably the best description of it. Your mind feels whole, your thoughts sharp and clear. There is no crashing. The ingredients consist of green tea leaves, green coffee beans and guarana seed extract. It’s sugar free and GMP certified. The taste isn’t the greatest, but that was done on purpose. The specific taste of ONGO has a physiological effect. When you spray it into your mouth, the taste signals to the brain that it’s GAME TIME! Just like when you smell coffee in the morning. You know a stimulant is coming!

Still have your ritual coffee routine. Stick to what works. ONGO is quick way to pep you up. So, I would recommend using it for a sports competition, if you need a pick me up when you’re out at night and you don’t want to have a coffee or a red bull, or if you are on a long drive and don’t want to stop.


  1. Feel it within 5-10 minutes! You’ll feel BRIGHT, energized and ready to go, without the jitters or crashing.
  2. The taste is strong and may take some getting used to, but trust us, it’s worth it.
  3. If you have a high caffeine tolerance, wait 15 minutes before your second serving.

We have a tester bottle at Critical Mass that you are welcome to try.

3 sprays are 75mg of caffeine.

If you like it you can purchase it at Critical Mass for $20 or order online at ONGO ENERGY SPRAY
