I just had to tell you that I took the HCCA (High Country Citizens’ Alliance) hikers up Scarp Ridge, outside of Crested Butte near Irwin, Colorado today. One of them was not feeling well, had a hard time going up, kept stopping and sitting. I gave her half a packet of Acli-Mate and she immediately fell in step with everyone else, and did fine the rest of the way. We were all pretty amazed, but then, you (and Acli-Mate) are amazing!
Thanks for helping make the hike a success.

First let me start by saying that I have never in my 66 years wrote a testimonial for a product. I had to send this to you the manufacturer as your product Acli-Mate truly made a difference in my life.
I have been coming to Gunnison County Colorado for 14 years to visit with my daughter and have made the trip originally from New York and recently from Florida several times a year. Every time I got to Colorado I started feeling dizzy, out of breath, severe headaches, body and hand shaking and had to fill a prescription for oxygen. It seemed to me that the longer I stayed the sicker I felt. Prior to my visits I would drink a lot of orange juice and a great deal of water to hydrate myself but nothing seemed to work. My daughter has two small children and traveling to me in Florida has been a hardship so I make the trip but I admit it has been increasingly difficult to enjoy my grandchildren just taking them for a walk or going to the park.
It seemed that every hour I would have to sit down and take oxygen to breathe or lie down because the room felt like it was spinning and I would fall.
My daughter told me about this product Acli-Mate that is all natural and in a powder form and all I have to do is mix it with water. She told me to start taking it three times a day for three days prior to coming to Colorado and to continue the same dosage all through out the trip. We also decided that it would be helpful if I would spend one night in Denver and then go on to Crested Butte.
Well why am I so excited about this product. IT WORKS! It is very simple to carry in single dose packages and more economical in the tub and it tastes great. For the first time in 14 years I had the best trip of my life. I was able to stay for more than a week and did not have any of the above symptoms. I played with my grandchildren for hours at a time. I had so much energy and stamina I couldn’t believe I was at 9800 feet above sea level.
Thank you for making this product. I have made plans to visit again in the spring and will follow-up with another visit in the summer. Snow is not my thing.

Acli-Mate truly helped our daughter minimize her severe altitude sickness. We are from Florida so going from sea level to Crested Butte at roughly 9500 feet, is always tough. We keep an oxygen condenser unit in our Colorado home so our daughter doesn’t feel so bad. After starting the Acli-Mate three days prior to our trip and the first few days of being at a high altitude, she was fine. No oxygen, no getting sick. Everything was great. I highly recommend Acli-Mate for the low-landers heading “up”!!!
I am an avid skier and photographer in Salt Lake City. When an old ski buddy from Ohio and I reconnected via facebook I had a plan to try to ensure that we would not be missing any epic powder turns due to fatigue or problems with the altitude. I quickly ordered some Acli-Mate online and it arrived the day before his plane landed. Minutes after he got in the car I handed him a water bottle with a serving of the grape Acli-Mate. We both drank our Acli-Mate while we shared stories from back in the day. Within less than an hour after picking him up we were in our ski gear at 10,000 feet at the top of the Collins lift at Alta. We skied hard for the rest of the day while it continued to dump the greatest snow on earth.
We both woke up early the next day eager to ski the fresh snow with no complaints of sore muscles. With Acli-Mate and a big breakfast, we skied even harder the second day making multiple laps in area that we had to hike a boot pack to earn our turns. Thanks to the Acli-Mate we hiked and skied this area for most of the afternoon. My Ohio ski buddy charged hard all day long. He said it was the best ski trip of his life.
