Ginkgo biloba has a remarkable ability to increase blood flow, enabling it to cope better with decreased atmospheric oxygen levels. Antioxidant properties in the leaf extract increase vasodilation and peripheral blood flow in capillary vessels. Better blood flow at altitude delivers more oxygen to your brain — eliminating — and to your muscles, allowing you to bike, run or ski all day without feeling weak.*
When our body’s cells use oxygen, they naturally produce free radicals as byproducts, which can cause cell damage. ALA, Vitamin C and Vitamin E work synergistically to protect cells from free radical damage.
In a study of Mt. Everest climbers, antioxidant supplementation at high altitude was shown to be an effective intervention for reducing the effects of high altitude and improving the physiological profile of mountaineers.
