Phoenix, AZ –-(Ammoland.com)- Wilderness Athlete, a leader in nutrition products designed for hunters and outdoor enthusiast, is proud to unveil Hy-Altitude Advantage for hunters hunting in the high country.
Hy-Altitude Advantage is a two-part system that is made up of a capsule and Wilderness Athletes Hydration & Recover drink.
When the drink and capsule are taken together, the overall effect of the pill is amplified and helps hunters process oxygen more quickly and efficiently. It helps hunters rebound from the effects of altitude sickness. Hunters simply mix the Hydration and Recover with 16 ounces of water and swallow the capsule, drinking the entire 16 ounces when taking the pill. Many eastern hunters cannot prepare for acute mountain sickness if they are heading West to hunt in the mountains.
Altitude Sickness, also known as AMS, affects hunters in a variety of ways: vomiting, heavy breathing, horrible headaches and cold sweats. Eastern hunters can do several things to prepare for western hunting including lifting weights, hiking with a pack on their back and running. However, they cannot prepare for AMS.
“Acute Mountain Sickness can bring hunters who are in great shape to their knees. In extreme cases of AMS, hunters will have to stop hunting for a few days or even go home early,” Mark Paulsen, Founder of Wilderness Athlete noted.
The oxygen level is 21% at sea level and is the same at high altitudes. However, at sea level, the barometric pressure is 760 mmHg. At 12,000 feet, the barometric pressure is 480 mmHg. Therefore, there are 40% less oxygen molecules taken in per breath. At high elevations, the soft tissue in the brain and lungs begin to swell. High altitude and low air pressure causes fluid to leak from the capillaries, which causes the swelling. Dehydration usually sets in as well. Altitude Advantage capsules are made from a variety of herbs including Reishi and Golden Root. The herbs increase the size of our blood vessels and small capillaries, reducing the swelling associated with AMS. It increases the effectiveness of the body’s ability to utilize the oxygen we are breathing. The product reduces fatigue, lactic acid build up, and increases circulation. The capsule is a dream come true for eastern hunters hunting in the West.
For maximum results, Altitude Advantage should be taken at least five days before a hunt, giving blood vessels and capillaries time to increase in size, which will decrease the time it takes to acclimate to high altitudes.
