Balanced electrolytes for hydration, B-vitamins and CoQ10 for sustained and optimal energy and essential minerals to reduce muscle fatigue and cramping.
Participants are invited to visit the Acli-Mate® website to learn more about these natural sport drinks. Samples are available and all may be purchased ahead of time. For optimal acclimatization, Dr. Houck recommends starting the Mountain Formula three days prior to arrival at elevation. Visit www.acli-mate.com for additional information on acclimatization, best use for runners and more!
For Best Results: Acli-Mate® is effective at reducing symptoms associated with altitude sickness when started upon arrival at your destination. However, increased benefit may be seen by using up to 3 servings daily starting 3 days prior to traveling at elevation.
For active individuals, consume Acli-Mate® 30-60 minutes prior to exercise. You may also mix up a bottle to use both during and after for sustained energy and recovery.
One to three servings daily is suggested. Adjust based upon your anticipated need.
Children and individuals sensitive to the energizing effects of B-vitamins should consider limiting the use of Acli-Mate® after 5 pm.
RUNNERS: Acli-Mate® is an optimal sports drink for runners as the demand upon the body during trail and road running is intense. It is recommended that you try using Acli-Mate® prior to several runs at varying times. For example, use 30 minutes prior, then 60 minutes prior and 90 minutes prior to determine which usage works best for you. For long runs Acli-Mate® may be used on the trail. Many athletes use Acli-Mate® as a recovery drink to reduce the frequency, severity and duration of post exercise muscle fatigue and/or cramping. Acli-Mate® ENDURANCE, available May 2010, has been created specifically for endurance athletes to promote performance, energy and hydration. The delicious orange-mango flavor, combination of simple and complex carbs for quick and sustained energy, and balanced electrolytes make Acli-Mate® ENDURANCE a great option for those longer runs.
Advanced Purchases are recommended for optimal performance at Team Prep's high altitude camp! Buy before you travel at www.acli-mate.com
