Product Description

Altitude Sickness Remedy

Tomorrow You Will have 25% less oxygen to breathe… Is your body ready?

You’re headed for a long-awaited ski trip in the Rocky Mountains. You fly into Denver International Airport at 5,320 feet above sea level … you hop on a smaller jet that takes you right to the Aspen/Pitkin airfield at 7,815 feet …

And finally, you arrive by taxi at a spectacular alpine chalet in bright sunshine with azure-blue skies at 7,908 feet – just steps away from your room is a chairlift that can take you up to 11,200 feet.

You look all around you. The valleys are filled with fir and spruce trees. The peaks tower above you. The mountains beckon you to ski, or snowboard, or hike, or hunt, or fish – whatever you came to the mountains to do. As you settle into your room with a 180-degree view of the soaring ridge you plan to hike to tomorrow morning, you notice a slight pain just behind your eyes …

An hour later, you’ve got a throbbing headache …

A couple of hours later, your stomach is spinning, you feel short of breath, and all you can do is curl up in the fetal position and try to sleep …

Altitude RX will:

  • Reduce the symptoms of Altitude Sickness
  • Be free to enjoy every moment of your trip to the mountains
  • Feel as energized and fit as the people who live year-round at altitude
  • Avoid wasting time feeling rotten in your room or tent on your first days in the mountains
  • Feel confident using this all-natural nutritional supplement that’s completely free of side effects
  • Gain an edge on some alpine athletes in competitions
  • Feel less anxious and stressed out (one of the lesser-known symptoms of AMS)
  • Greatly reduce the chance of ending up in the emergency room with altitude sickness
  • And prevent your precious vacation or business-travel time from getting wasted on being sick.
runnersm I am an ultrarunner and the effects of altitude at some of my races really takes a toll on my performance. Due to my schedule I don’t have time to fly in early to acclimate my body and who wants to pay for the extra days in a hotel. I found your product on the internet and it worked. People who live at a lower altitude and compete at a higher altitude will want to try this product. It saved me time and money. Steve F, Florida

How It Works

How it Works

Each ingredient in Altitude Rx™ has been shown to reduce the occurence and duration of Acute Mountain Sickness in controlled clinical studies. Our scientists used the most potent compounds available in amounts shown to prevent symptoms of Acute Mountain Sickness.

  • Maximize Energy and Endurance
  • Maximize Oxygen Levels
  • Fend off the Negative Effects of High Altitude Induced Stress

Ginkgo Biloba

Alpine climbers acclimating at camp two of AconcaguaGinkgo biloba has a remarkable ability to increase blood flow throughout the body, enabling it to cope better with decreased atmospheric oxygen levels. The leaf extracts have antioxidant properties which increase vasodilation and peripheral blood flow in the capillary vessels. Ginkgo also decreases blood viscosity and helps regulate cerebral energy metabolism.

The results of recent studies are the most compelling data to date supporting the efficacy of Ginkgo biloba in prevention of AMS. In these studies, the group taking Ginkgo biloba had no increase in their AMS score (which is remarkable), while the acetazolamide and placebo groups showed increases of 36% and 54%, respectively. The authors concluded that their study provides evidence supporting the use of Gingko biloba in the prevention of AMS, demonstrating that 24 hours of pre-treatment with Gingko biloba and subsequent maintenance during exposure to high altitude are sufficient to reduce the incidence of AMS in participants with no previous high-altitude experience.

Rhodiola Rosea

Rhodiola rosea has been categorized as an adaptogen by scientists due to its ability to increase resistance against a variety of chemical, biological and physical stressors and to help the body to recover homeostasis. Rhodiola rosea is also known for it’s ability to fight fatigue and increase energy. Rhodiola also promotes faster adaptation to climatic changes.

Athletes have used Rhodiola to improve increase endurance and improve performance. It is also believed to increase strength and shorten recovery after strenuous and prolonged endurance events and workouts.

Rhodiola also has been shown to reverse the effects of asthenia. It reduces fatigue, labored breathing, rapid heart rate, sluggishness, and excessive sleeping.

Antioxidants
Antioxidants are substances or nutrients in our foods which can prevent or slow the oxidative damage to our body’s cells. When our body’s cells use oxygen, they naturally produce free radicals (by-products) which can cause damage. ALA, Vitamin C and Vitamin E all work in a synergistic manner to protect our body’s cells from free radical damage. In a recent study, antioxidant supplementation (alpha-lipoic acid, Vitamin C and E) at high altitude was shown to be an effective intervention for reducing AMS and improving the physiological profile of mountaineers at high altitude. This study was done with mountaineers climbing Mt. Everest.

 mccloy epoboost med2 We have done some training on the mountains in the UK and have stepped up our fitness plans at work im sure/hope we will be ok. I have been taking Epo-boost now for 5 weeks, I have noticed that when running or cycling I am not as out of breath. I took a vo2 max test last week and my vo2 max has also increased since the last time I was tested. My colleagues and I are fascinated by your products and are amazed at how they work and what goes into making them. Glen McCloy
   
 OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA “I want to let you know how much I like your product! I purchased your Altitude Rx after seeing an ad in one of my hunting magazines (if I remember correctly). I used it on an elk hunt in Wyoming this October. I spent 2 weeks between 8 and 11000 ft. I experienced only a very mild, dull head ache for the 1st two days. I worked my tail off up there under winter weather conditions packing up to 95 pounds in snow, etc. I felt great!! Over the last 10 years that I have been going to this location, I would experience a severe head ache by the 2nd night at those elevations and also be very lethargic. I would feel very sick, loose sleep do to the pain, and even feel a since of panic. None of these things happened while taking your product!!! I always train hard before these hunts but due to schedules and distances here in Southern California, I just never seem to be able to get up to our local mountains for elevation training ahead of the trips to Wyoming. I can’t tell you how happy I am to have discovered your product!!! Thank you.”-David Fisher, OD 11/15/11
 mattperry ” I am a Cat 1 cyclist and my first high-altitude race this yeas was on the 4th of July at the Firecracker 50 in Breckenridge, CO. I used AltitudeRx and TriFuel™ energy drink and was happy with the combination. I had no altitude headaches or any other symptoms. I ended up in 2nd place in the Cat 1 30-34 age group.”-Matt Perry, Cat 1 Cyclist, CO, USA http://viedevelo.wordpress.com
 machu-picchu “I liked this product. I went to Cusco, Peru and Machu Pichu (9,000-11,000 feet) with four friends. I shared my supplements with one person. I had taken prescription medication along just in case but never used it. Though Im not sure it helped my energy a lot, I did not feel any debilitating symptoms. I also drank coca tea. The friend who did not take the supplements (but drank tea) had a day of nausea and headache. My supplement-sharing friend and I felt pretty good every day. I would definitely take these on my next trip and skip the prescription drugs.” Maria, California
 snowboard1 Surfing the internet we found you before we headed out and got your product just in time to start taking it the day before like you said. We all took it and no one got sick. In fact, we were really able to hit the slopes right away. Last year one of our buddies had to go to the ER… so thanks.-Mason Mitchell
 hawkins_family I just wanted to thank-you for a great product. My family used it and it works… no one had any problems and we were able to have a great first day on the slopes. I always have problems and even one year we had to see a physician. So again thanks!-The Hawkins Family

Moraga FA, Flores A, Serra J, Esnaola C, Barriento C. Laboratorio de Fisiología, Escuela de Medicina, Universidad Católica del Norte, Coquimbo-Chile.fmoraga@ucn.cl

Abstract

OBJECTIVE: To determine the prophylactic effect of Ginkgo biloba (doses 80 mg/12 h, 24 h before high-altitude ascension and with continued treatment) in preventing acute mountain sickness (AMS) at 3696 m in participants without high-altitude experience.

METHODS: Thirty-six participants who reside at sea level were transported to an altitude of 3696 m (Ollagüe). The participants were divided into 3 groups and received G biloba (n=12) 80 mg/12 h, acetazolamide (n=12) 250 mg/12 h, or placebo (n=12) 24 hours before ascending and during their 3-day stay at high altitude. The Lake Louise Questionnaire constituted the primary outcome measurement at sea level and at 3696 m. A Lake Louise Self-Report Score greater than 3 was indicative of AMS. Oxygen saturation, heart rate, and arterial pressure were taken with each evaluation for AMS.

RESULTS: A significant reduction in AMS was observed in the group that received G biloba (0%, P<.05) comparison with the groups receiving acetazolamide (36%, P<.05) or placebo (54%). No difference was observed in arterial oxygen saturation in the G biloba (92+/-2) vs the acetazolamide (89+/-2) groups. However, a marked increased saturation in arterial oxygen was seen in comparison with the placebo group (84+/-3, P<.05). No statistically significant differences were observed in mean arterial pressure or heart rate. CONCLUSIONS: This study provides evidence supporting the use of G biloba in the prevention of AMS, demonstrating that 24 hours of pretreatment with G biloba and subsequent maintenance during exposure to high altitude are sufficient to reduce the incidence of AMS in participants with no previous high-altitude experience.

RHODIOLA ROSEA INCREASES VO2MAX AND ENDURANCE PERFORMANCE

Zhang ZJ, Tong Y, Zou J, Chen PJ, Yu DH. (2009) Dietary supplement with a combination of Rhodiola crenulata and Ginkgo biloba enhances the endurance performance in healthy volunteers. Chin J Integr Med. 15:177-183.

PURPOSE: To determine whether the ingestion of Rhodiola would enhance the endurance performance of healthy volunteers and change relevant hormones in a favorable manner.

METHODS: Seventy healthy male volunteers (age ranges from 18 to 22 years old) were randomly assigned to Rhodiola group (n = 35) or placebo group (n = 35) for 7 weeks. Endurance performance (VO2max) was measured at the baseline and the endpoint.

RESULTS: Sixty-seven subjects (34 in the Rhodiola group and 33 in the placebo group) completed a 7-week treatment. The Rhodiola group displayed a significantly greater baseline-to endpoint increase in maximal oxygen uptake (VO2max) than placebo group in both absolute (P=0.020) and relative values (P=0.023).

CONCLUSION: Rhodiola supplementation can improve VO2max and endurance performance.

Antioxidants

Acute Mountain Sickness; Prophylactic Benefits of Antioxidant Vitamin Supplementation at High Altitude, Damian M. Bailey, Bruce Davies. High Altitude Medicine & Biology. March 2001, 2(1): 21-29. Published in Volume: 2 Issue 1: July 6, 2004 Hypoxia Research Unit, Health and Exercise Sciences Research Laboratory, School of Applied Sciences, University of Glamorgan, Pontypridd, South Wales, UK CF37 1DL.

Free-radical-mediated damage to the blood-brain barrier may be implicated in the pathophysiology of acute mountain sickness (AMS). To indirectly examine this, we conducted a randomized double-blind placebo-controlled trial to assess the potentially prophylactic benefits of enteral antioxidant vitamin supplementation during ascent to high altitude. Eighteen subjects aged 35 ± 10 years old were randomly assigned double-blind to either an antioxidant (n = 9) or placebo group (n = 9). The antioxidant group ingested 4 capsules/day-1 (2 after breakfast/2 after evening meal) that each contained 250 mg of L-ascorbic acid (Vitamin C), 100 IU of dl-α-tocopherol acetate (Vitamin E) and 150 mg of α-lipoic acid. The placebo group ingested 4 capsules of identical external appearance, taste, and smell. Supplementation was enforced for 3 weeks at sea level and during a 10-day ascent to Mt. Everest base camp (5180 m). Antioxidant supplementation resulted in a comparatively lower Lake Louise AMS score at high altitude relative to the placebo group (2.8 ± 0.8 points versus 4.0 ± 0.4 points, P = 0.036), higher resting arterial oxygen saturation (89 ± 5% versus 85 ± 5%, P = 0.042), and total caloric intake (13.2 ± 0.6 MJ/day-1 versus 10.1 ± 0.7 MJ/day-1, P = 0.001); the latter is attributable to a lower satiety rating following a standardized meal.

These findings indicate that the exogenous provision of water and lipid-soluble antioxidant vitamins at the prescribed doses is an apparently safe and potentially effective intervention that can attenuate AMS and improve the physiological profile of mountaineers at high altitude.
