"Wilderness Athlete"

I was wondering if any of you guys have used any of the wilderness athlete products? I have been working out in preparation for the mountains, but my joints are really starting to give me trouble. I was thinking about trying their supplements that are supposed to help eliminate joint pain.

Start taking Glucosimine and Chondroitin tablets, you can get at any health center or drug store. I get mine at Costco. I think wilderness athlete makes some great stuff and you should try out their meal replacements and hydrate and recover, good stuff. But for your joints start taking the G&C tablets regularly and they will start helping you out in a month or two.

I take Glucosimine, Chondroitin and MSM for my left hip. It definitely makes a difference.

I have used their products off and on for a couple years. I really like the Hydrate and Recovery. When I get dehydrated, it seems that is the quickest way to getting hydrated again. Used it with energy and focus on my elk hunts in the past, and I can say it helps you keep going after 5 days on the mountain. I am heading up on a solo back country hunt in a couple weeks, and it will be in my pack for sure.

Do you guys use anything when you hunt above timberline for multiple days. I have a hard time(flu like symptoms) above timberline, 1 or 2 days I am good drinking a lot of Pedialyte, more than two days i need to bring oxygen which sucks to carry but works like a miracle. I was wondering if WA timberline products work.

DirtyGrass,

There are medication that can be taken to help with Elevation Sickness. They are regularly used on foreign Sheep Hunts.
Talk to your doc about it.

Good luck!

Mike

The WA Joint Advantage seems to do a better job for me than other G&C supplements I have used. I hear lots of positive comments about it from my readers and my brother swears by it.

The altitude medication mentioned above is probably prescription Diamox. It works for most people but has side effects that are problematic. Diamox is a diuretic which means it makes you urinates more than normal so it adds to the dehydration problem associated with altitude sickness. The Altitude Advantage product from Wilderness Athlete is an organic, natural formulation that seems to work very well for most people in reducing the severity of symptoms or eliminating them altoghether.

I continue to be impressed with and use many of the WA products. My best advice is to give them a try and find out for yourself. They run a 10% ad on my site if you want to save a little money.

Glucosamine can come with some unneeded fillers, so when choosing a brand, read the labels and use those with less filling material.

I like Glucosamine Sulfate as it works better *for me* than anything else.

Here is some pretty cool info on altitude related issues. http://www.altitudemedicine.org/index.php/altitude-medicine/learn-about-altitude-sickness

Here is some info on how diamox (it's a carbonic anhydrase inhibitor) works. http://www.netdoctor.co.uk/seniors-health/medicines/diamox.html

If you scroll down here, you can see how carbonic anhydrase inhibitors work. http://www.flashcardmachine.com/clinical-pharmacology1.html To summarize, they displace a Hydrogen Ion, which is thought to be responsible for increased sensation in pain, and, perhaps more importantly for hunters/outdoorsmen...will inhibit the ability of hemoglobin to carry oxygen. So, the job of diamox/CA inhibitors is to chemically allow hemoglobin to carry more oxygen, thus helping to eliminate some of the symptoms of altitude issues.


If you are out of diamox...or just don't have any...some alka seltzer, or baking soda, may just do the trick because they each contain sodium bicarbonate. But, as Wade indicated, there may be issues with any drug you take. And yea, it does work. BUT, you will need to increase your uptake of water as well...some of the symptoms *can* include the runs or some other form of GI distress. Sodium bicarbonate works to (chemically) displace the Hydrogen Ion and free up Hemoglobin's ability to carry O2 to working tissues.
