Altitude supplements are important for high altitude trips and journeys, as the body requires different nutrients in order to perform at its optimal level. These nutrients are used by the body to help with energy production, oxygen transportation, fluid balance and maintenance of muscle.
High altitude is defined as 8,000 feet and above. At this elevation, the air is so thin that less oxygen is available to breathe. Air pressure decreases in direct proportion to altitude — that is, the higher you go, the lower the air pressure. Having the right altitude supplements can make your trip safer and more enjoyable.
