High-Altitude Sickness Relief Herbal Tincture

DESCRIPTION:

This herbal tincture blend is specifically designed to target high altitude sickness is a single-herb tincture of cayenne.  Take to improve blood flow and circulation and relief from high altitude sickness.  This product is best when used BEFORE you experience symptoms of high-altitude sickness, then as needed with just a few drops taken every 10 minutes until symptoms resolve.  Place the drops of tincture in the cheek or under the tongue, or drop in an ounce of water to dilute.  This product comes in a 2-ounce amber Nalgene bottle and is designed to be thrown into a backpack or your herbal first aid kit.

You should anticipate sweating and feeling an increase of blood flow with this product.  Cayenne is well known for its "up and out" action as it moves heat up the body and out, which is why people often get sweaty in the face and appear hot or red in color after consuming cayenne.  This is a normal finding and the heat left in the mouth will dissipate after a few minutes.

***High Altitude Sickness, often called acute mountain sickness (AMS), can be a life-threatening situation.  Please prepare for altitude descent and notifying emergency medical services if you are getting better with initial treatment.  Always prepare in advance for high-altitude climbs.
