Today, in another post, there was some mention of a product called "Mountain Might" that claims to be safe, effective and LEGAL. It claims to provide adaptation of the body to altitude AT SEA LEVEL in as little as 4 days.
Has anyone seen this stuff or personally tried it? I would like to know what outcome you had trying it. I am thinking of giving it a try when I run the Tahoe Rim Trail 50Mile run in July, coming from Sea Level the day before the race. At $50 a bottle I want to know if its snake oil or actually works.
UPDATE ON 7-22-13
LAST WEEKEND I TRIED MM OUT AT THE TAHOE RIM TRAIL 50 MILE RUN AND IT WORKED EXACTLY AS ADVERTIZED. IT FELT LIKE ANY OTHER HARD RUN, I REALLY DID NOT FEEL THE ALTITUDE ALL THAT MUCH. NO HEADACHE, NO THUMPING HEAD, SLIGHT SHORTNESS OF BREATH WHEN GOING UP SUPER STEEP SECTIONS, BUT THAT'S NORMAL FOR ME AT SEA LEVEL.
I WOULD DEFINITELY USE IT AGAIN WITHOUT A SECONT THOUGHT.
THANKS TO JASON FOR STEPPING UP AND OFFERING A FREE SAMPLE TO TRY. YOU HAVE A NEW CUSTOMER AND ADVOCATE !!
