Altitude Sickness Prevention Altitude sickness is preventable.

Drink plenty of fluids, and avoid alcohol consumption. Consume a high-carbohydrate diet. If mountain hiking or climbing, ascend gradually once past 8,000 feet above sea level Raise the sleeping altitude by no more than 1,000 feet per 24 hours. The mountaineer`s rule is ‘climb high, sleep low.’ Which means that on layover times, a climber can ascend to a higher elevation throughout the day and come back to a lesser sleeping elevation during the night.In a recently available study experts determined that carotenoids such as for example astaxanthin should be referred to as antiradicals instead of as free radical scavengers because they perform a dual action against free radicals, either donating or accepting electrons. These researchers determined the antiradical capability of varied carotenoids and found that vitamin E is the most effective antiradical when it comes to its electron donor capability, while the most effective antiradical when it comes to its electron acceptor capacity is definitely astaxanthin. Astaxanthin helps to keep cataracts away Recent research from Taipei Medical University in Taiwan found that astaxanthan safeguarded against induced cataracts in rats treated with selenite, a frequently encountered highly toxic type of selenium.
