BASED ON SCIENCE NOT SUPERSTITION
Before hiking, some Peruvians chew coca leaves, Nepalese drink mountain-grown garlic soup and Italians eat extra pasta. The locals say these natural remedies for altitude sickness help. Now there is an evidence-based option that fits in the rest of our travel bags – FLYGOOD.
CLINICALLY TESTED INGREDIENTS
Flygood’s formula is a result of rigorous research and work with doctors and naturalists. Scientific studies (double blinded, placebo controlled) show Flygood’s adaptogenic ingredients can be as effective as pharmaceuticals, minus the side effects. (see chart below)
Immune Boost - How it works
Probiotic - How it works
Prevents and treats nausea: Ginger is widely known as an anti-inflammatory, nausea reliever, digestive aid and altitude sickness treatment. It is frequently used as a natural remedy for motion sickness. Ginger helps with bloating, constipation, nausea and other gastrointestinal disorders by relaxing the smooth muscle in your gut lining and helping food move along throughout the system. It’s anti-nausea and anti-inflammatory properties make it an ideal supplement for elevation sickness.
Increases oxygen. Gingko improves the level of oxygen in the blood, improves blood circulation and allows the brain to tolerate lower oxygen levels. Multiple studies have shown significant reductions in acute mountain sickness for hikers at altitude without the side effects of non – over the counter drugs like Diamox. When evaluating proven natural remedies for altitude sickness treatment and prevention, Ginkgo Biloba is at the top of the list (see below for research links).
Salicin relieves headaches: The salicylic acid in white willow bark lowers the body’s levels of prostaglandins that can cause aches, pain, and inflammation. It acts similarly to a slow release aspirin, but unlike aspirin it is not generally associated with stomach bleeding or other adverse effects. As an altitude sickness treatment, aspirin has shown effectiveness, willow bark is the natural remedy for pain associated with elevation sickness.
Prevents inflammation: Resveratrol, also known as grape skin, can prevent swelling in your brain and limbs. Ankle swelling and headaches are common symptoms when traveling. Studies have demonstrated prevention of neurodegenerative processes both by inhibiting inflammation in the brain and by acting as an antioxidant, reducing oxidative stress.
Fights off colds and viruses: Vitamin C directly supports and stimulates your immune system. The immune system pumps vitamin C into your cells in stressful situations. When inflammation or infection threatens – such as with colds or flu – vitamin C usage ramps up. In trials involving runners, skiers, and soldiers exposed to extreme physical exercise and/or cold environments, vitamin C reduced cold incidence by 50%.
Prevents fatigue and stress: Vitamin B12 increases your energy levels by boosting your metabolism – converting carbohydrates into energy. B12 helps produce a compound called SAM (S-adenosyl methionine) which is crucial for proper neurological function and stress reduction, which can help reduce anxiety when traveling.
Probiotics reduce nasal congestion. Saccharaomyces cerevisiae, a probiotic, also known as dried yeast fermentate, helps to balance your immune system in four ways. First, it boosts the strength of your skin and mucous membranes (your body’s first line of defense). Second, it stimulates your immune cells, third it improves your good gut bacteria and finally it supports the production of T-cell and B-cell immune factors which among other things, helps prevent congestion. Probiotics are also taken for natural cold and diarrhea prevention. Learn More
