altitude supplements

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.

Altitude Supplements

Altitude supplements, such as our Zaca chewables, contain various antioxidants, herbs and amino acids to help you feeling your best. Zaca is formulated with 3 ingredients that have science-backed altitude research.

These 3 altitude-researched ingredients for Zaca's altitude supplements are:

  • Glutathione

    Research in India has shown that your body loses glutathione in high altitudes at a fast rate, up to 45%. This can lead to oxidative stress.¹ Glutathione supplementation helps with detoxification of the body, raising energy levels, immune function and recycling other antioxidants like vitamin C and E.

  • Glutamine

    A study out of Brazil found that supplementation with glutamine may help reduce mood and cognition worsening from high altitude hypoxia, or low oxygen levels.² In addition, glutamine can help with dehydration from high altitudes due to dryer air and increased respiration.

  • Dihydromyricetin (DHM)

    In research out of China, DHM was found to enhance physical performance under simulated high-altitude.³ Dihydromyricetin (DHM) is a bioflavonoid that Zaca derives from the Japanese Raisin Tree.
