Best Altitude Sickness Tablets

Planning a trip to a mountainous region? Living in Colorado with the Rocky Mountains in our backyard, we know altitude sickness very well. Here we'll discuss why Zaca has the best altitude sickness tablets.

Best Altitude Sickness Tablets

Zaca chewables are the best altitude sickness tablets. They can be taken as a preventive measure before you head up into the mountains, ski resorts, or hiking trails.

They contain a special blend of herbs, antioxidants and amino acids that have been used for centuries in traditional Chinese medicine, traditional Korean medicine, and traditional Mexican medicine. Zaca works by helping your body rehydrate, replenish and recover faster.

There are many different types of altitude sickness tablets available on the market today, but none come close to being as effective or convenient as Zaca chewables. Zaca contains three key ingredients with science-backed altitude research, including Glutathione, Glutamine and Dihydromyricetin. We'll discuss more of the science of those ingredients below.

In addition, Zaca is one of the few products packaged in portable, take on-the-go hydration packets. If you are planning on heading up into the mountains, these tablets are essential, yet simple and easy to take anywhere. Whether skiing, hiking, or mountain vacationing, Zaca has the altitude fuel you need.

Research On Natural Ingredients For Altitude Sickness

If you want to know how to prevent altitude sickness naturally, these three ingredients are the answer.

Altitude sickness occurs when the body is not acclimatized to high altitudes with lower oxygen levels. The symptoms can include headaches, nausea, dizziness and fatigue.

Some natural ingredients we found over the years with altitude sickness research that may help include Glutathione, Glutamine and Dihydromyricetin (DHM). Including these three key ingredients is why we consider Zaca some of the best altitude sickness tablets you will find.

Here we'll feature the highlights of each of the three natural ingredients for homeopathic altitude sickness prevention:

1. Glutathione

Glutathione is a powerful antioxidant that helps protect the body from oxidative stress. It may also have anti-inflammatory properties, help with immune support, and help to detoxify the body.

Glutathione has been studied for its ability to help with altitude sickness:

  • A study out of India found Glutathione was depleted up to 45% during high altitude hypoxia (low oxygen).¹
  • In Hungary, they discovered that antioxidants (such as Glutathione) supplementation can prevent or decrease oxidative stress from high altitude conditions.²
It's clear from the science on altitude sickness that supplementing the best Glutathione can play a major role in restoring antioxidants levels and decreasing high altitude oxidative stress.

2. Dihydromyricetin (DHM)

Dihydromyricetin (DHM) is a natural compound found in the Japanese raisin tree (Hovenia dulcis) that has been shown to help with altitude. On top of altitude research, DHM has been frequently studies for its effects on hangovers, where there's ironically many similarities of a hangover to altitude symptoms.

Dihydromyricetin (DHM) has been studied for its ability to help with altitude sickness:

  • In 2013 it was discovered that by protecting the mitochondrial, DHM improved high altitude performance in high altitude conditions.⁴
  • DHM was shown to counteract high altitude induced cellular injury, reduce fatigue, increase mitochondrial respiratory functions, reduce muscle damage, and potentially prevent other altitude related illnesses.⁴
DHM is a powerhouse ingredient to improve high altitude performance and a key natural compound to the best altitude sickness tablets.

3. Glutamine

Glutamine, or specifically l-alanyl-l-glutamine that Zaca uses, is a natural amino acid found in the body that helps convert energy, build muscle mass, increase hydration intake and repair damaged tissue.

Dihydromyricetin (DHM) has been studied for its ability to help with altitude sickness:

  • A Brazilian study suggests that inflammation caused by lower oxygen altitude conditions may be reduce by glutamine supplementation.³
  • Research implies that the combination of glutamine supplementation and carbs may lessen the negative effects of high altitude conditions on activities.⁵
Glutatmine is last but not the least important ingredient as a critical part of supplements for altitude sickness with all it's altitude-related research.

You can see why to make the best altitude sickness tablets, these three synergistic ingredients should be highly considered in the formula such as Zaca's chewables.
