AltitudeRx altitude sickness supplement

There are a handful of altitude-sickness supplements on the market, but most other supplement makers miss the boat – or more accurately … the plane, car or train you’ll be taking to get to the mountains …

Most supplements claiming to be remedies for acute mountain sickness (AMS) are sold in hotel gift stores or ski town drug stores … in the mountains. But by the time you get to high elevation and start feeling the effects of altitude sickness, it's too late: These supplements are most effective when taken at least one day before you arrive in the mountains!

At BRL, we take a preventive approach to reducing AMS symptoms: By focusing our efforts on selling the patent-pending formula in Altitude RX in our online store, we can get you what you need, when need it: before you leave for your trip.

And here’s one more “secret” about the supplement industry that most supplement makers don’t want you to know …

Nutritional supplements, or "nutraceuticals," are subjected to a much different screening process than pharmaceuticals. While pharmaceuticals must undergo rigorous testing before they can be released to the public, nutraceuticals require less rigorous testing because they're made from natural ingredients. So  supplement makers, like good cooks, can experiment with various ingredients in formulating their products. And as long as the ingredients they use are safe, so are their products. But are they really effective?

Unlike typical supplement manufacturers, BRL uses only ingredients that have been scientifically proven through clinical studies to work. In fact, BRL formulators apply the same stringent standards used in the pharmaceutical industry to our nutritional-supplement products.

All BRL products are scientifically engineered using only the highest-quality natural ingredients available. The result is quality that is unparalleled in the supplements marketplace.

What Are the ingredients in Altitude RX?

Altitude RX contains five simple ingredients:

Ginkgo Biloba is known to have many benefits. Ginkgo improves blood circulation and allows the brain to tolerate low levels of oxygen. Several researchers have examined the effectiveness of Ginkgo in preventing the symptoms of AMS and studies have shown that Ginkgo can help prevent the most common symptoms.

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. Clinical Studies (Link to  

Antioxidants Vitamin C, E and alpha-lipoic acidhave been shown in a number of studies to decrease the effects of altitude sickness, many of whose symptoms appear to be related to free radical activity.
