Is altitude really a problem and should I take precautions?
Yes, even at Denver’s mile high altitude (5280 feet above sea level), travelers and athletes complain of symptoms such as shortness of breath, mild headache and nausea. It is estimated that some 30% of visitors to Colorado’s famed cities and resorts will experience some degree of altitude sickness that will affect their ability to either vacation, sport or conduct business. This equates to hundreds of millions of dollars in lost revenue and time for visitors, businesses and residents.
When should I take Altigen™?
Altigen™ can be taken several days before or upon arrival to your destination. Athletes and travelers to high altitude as well as numerous studies have demonstrated greater benefits when using Altigen™ 2 or more days prior to ascent.
Can I take Altigen™ if I am using prescription medications?
While Altigen™ is considered a very benign and safe formulation and there have been no reported side effects to date, it is recommended that you check with your health care provider before taking Altigen™.
Are any of the ingredients in Altigen™ banned for use by competitive athletes?
To date and to our knowledge, competitive athletic groups at any level consider the ingredients in Altigen™ benign and not banned for use. As always, it is prudent to check with the regulatory authority in question.
Are there any dangerous stimulants in Altigen™?
No, Altigen™ does not contain dangerous stimulants such as ma huang, caffeine, guarana or any other herbs generally considered unsafe. In fact, just the opposite, Altigen’s™ formulation and dosage are considered benign and safe. Altigen™ was formulated to support and strengthen your body without over stimulating it.
Can I use more than the recommended dosage of 3 tablets 2 times daily?
Yes, the recommended dosage is the minimum required dosage to have the desired altitude adjustment effect. It is acceptable to use a higher dosage. Consider the size, constitution, intensity of the activity and altitude where one plans to sport, travel or play. These factors can influence one’s decision to increase or decrease the above recommendations.
Is it acceptable to give my child Altigen™?
Children under the age of 3 we recommend consulting with your Pediatrician first. 3 years and above we recommend 1-2 tablets, 2 times daily. If your child is resistant to taking a pill, you can also crush the tablet(s), discard the coating, and mix into your child’s food. (example: apple sauce).
