High Altitude Sickness or also called Acute Mountain Sickness
High Altitude Sickness, also referred to as Acute Mountain Sickness, is the illness causing effect of high altitude on the human body. The exact mechanism by which it occurs is unknown but the severity of symptoms can vary from mild to life threatening. Recognizing the symptoms of altitude sickness, getting to a lower elevation, using supplemental oxygen, staying hydrated with water and Acli-Mate® Mountain Sport Drink may help to prevent or reduce the severity of altitude sickness. (Immediate medical attention is advised for moderate to severe High Altitude Sickness!) Read more at Wikipedia about High Altitude Sickness / Acute Mountain Sickness.
Common symptoms of altitude sickness include: fatigue, headaches, nausea, vomiting, dizziness, muscle cramping, insomnia, elevated blood pressure, shortness of breath, water retention and dehydration. Acli-Mate® Mountain Sport Drink is an excellent choice for the mountain visitor and athlete; it may also be used at any elevation for energy and improved hydration.

Directions for Optimal Acclimatization:
Plan your vacation responsibly.
The higher and faster you go up, the greater risk you are for AMS. Consider spending a night or two at moderate elevation if you are prone to High Altitude Sickness.
For best results, use Acli-Mate® Mountain Sport Drink at 3 servings daily started at least three days prior to travel and/or exercise at elevation. If you are unable to use Acli-Mate® Mountain Sport Drink starting before being at elevation start upon arrival or at the first indication of altitude stress. Continue to use daily while at elevation.
ADULTS: Use three servings daily. Not recommended in late evening as the B-vitamins are energizing and may cause restless sleep. Taken earlier in the day, Acli-Mate® Mountain Sport Drink aids in more restless sleep by helping your body adapt to the stressors of elevation.*
KIDS: 1-2 servings daily. Generally, kids love the flavor and getting them to drink Acli-Mate® is no problem! Getting them to stop drinking it, is more the issue.
