Altitude training scientifically proven to improve health and fitness

Just as exercise improves overall health, so altitude training effects internal processes. It re-establishes a ballance in a body, which was destroyed due to the uncontrolled stress of our daily lives. Altitude training is the most powerful form of natural medicine and its positive effects last much longer than the workout itself.

Altitude training improves metabolism, transportation and use of oxygen in the body. Despite the fact that oxygen allows us to life, free oxygen molecules, which are known as oxidizing agents, can damage otherwise healthy cell. Consequently, the various disorders and diseases occur. Altitude training stimulates the antioxidant system to fight free radicals more effectively, resulting in enhanced healt and energy boosts on all levels.

THE BENEFITS OF ALTITUDE TRAINING FOR HEALTH AND WELL-BEING ARE :

  • An increased transport of oxygen to cells, muscles and tissues.
  • Lowering of cholesterol and blood pressure levels.
  • Losing weight and improving metabolism
  • Increased calorie consumption
  • Reducing stress and depression
  • Treating asthma
  • Boosting the immune and anti-oxidant system.
  • Hormone balance
  • Rejuvenation
  • Increased insulin sensitivity and improved glucose metabolism
  • Increases in fertility
  • Heart protection.
  • Brain protection from oxidative stress.
  • Shorter physical activity with a greater effect.

For improving health and well-being, all three forms are used: IHT, Altitude Training and Altitude Sleeping, but it is the passive form of altitude training, the IHT, that is the most used. Double the effect by using the Altitude Training, especially for using calories. The longer life expectancy of the population living at high altitudes might be persuaded to turn your bedroom into an altitude room.

Altitude training is the most powerful form of natural remedy.

HEALTH

Simulated altitude training doesn’t deny an importance of oxygen in human life, on the contrary. The body, when it is exposed to altitude, the air with a lower oxygen content, strives to adapt, which means to get enough oxygen in the body.

Despite the fact that oxygen allows life on Earth, large quantities can damage the body tissues. Free oxygen mulecules, known as oxidants, are highly reactive and binds to every available molecule in the body in order to neutralize and stabilize it. In many cases this causes injury in an otherwise healthy cell. Likewise as the apple changes, when is exposed to air (the shell is wrinkled, the fruit begins to rot), our body is also aging. The antioxidant system in our body, loaded with free radicals – oxidants, does not work any more effectively and as a result, various diseases can occur.

Altitude training stimulates the body’s antioxidant system to become more effective in the fight against free radicals-oxidants. Breathing becomes more racional, oxygen consumption for the same activity be lower. The result is enhanced health and energy at all levels.

The Australian Physiotherapy Association, officially approved the use of altitude training based on an independent research that did not involve an elite sports field. Like movement improves general health, so altitude training works on internal processes. It restores the balance in the body, which has been broken through the uncontrolled stress of our everyday life. Altitude training is the most powerful form of natural remedy and its positive effects with long-lasting effect.

WHO BENEFITS FROM ALTITUDE TRAINING:

  • Chronically overweight people
  • Everyone who wants to lose weight
  • People with asthma
  • People who hyperventilate in breathing (excessive fast breathing)
  • People with high blood pressure (slight to moderate increase)
  • People with high value of cholesterol
  • Type 2 diabetics
  • People who suffer from depression
  • Everyone who wants to restore a sense of tranquility
  • People with a hormonal imbalance
  • Everyone with fertility problems
  • Everyone with blood circulation problem
  • Everyone with insomnia
  • Everyone who wants to rejuvenate

HOW TO USE

For those who wish to improve and strengthen their health, we recommend Intermittent Hypoxic Training known as IHT . In comfortable lying or sitting position we alternately breathe altitude and room air through the mask according to the protocol you receive when purchase the altitude system. This method speeds up adaptation in the body, the protocol is not exhausting and no physical activity is required. The effect of an adaptation process lasts 15 days. Benefits last up to 3 months, maintaining them with 5-days repetitions. MORE

PHYSIOLOGICAL EFFECTS OF ALTITUDE TRAINING FOR HEALTH

Z

IMPROVED PULMONARY FUNCTION

People with respiratory problems are most often diagnosed with asthma. Nobody knows exactly what causes asthma. For some, this is an allergic reaction to a particular food or substance from the environment, for others it is caused by exercise. Symptoms of asthma are due to spasms of smooth muscles that surround bronchioles in the lungs. Altitude training method – IHT releases these muscles and enables the cellular structure in these fibers to respond more effectively to glucose and oxygen, thus restoring the normal state. Medically severe forms of asthma have been successfully treated with some IHT seccions.

Z

IMPROVED BLOOD CIRCULATION

During altitude training, you will release nitric oxide in your body, which extends the circulatory system and facilitates blood flow. When the body is adapted to the high altitude, new capillaries that carry the available oxygen to the cells develop, thus improving the blood flow through the body.

Z

IMPROVED ENERGY LEVELS

The body needs oxygen for the conversion of glucose into energy for all cells of body, so oxygen is inevitably needed to generate energy. We can stay for weeks without food, a few days without water and only a few minutes without oxygen. Unfortunately, inhaling a large amount of air does not necessarily result in an increase in the amount of oxygen in the cell, but it often has the opposite effect.

On the basis of the PH blood factor, which controls the release of oxygen and the removal of carbon dioxide, people who are breathing too fast, they have an oxygen strongly bounded in the blood, instead of being freely released, into the cell. Long-term oxygen deficiency at the cellular level leads to a decline in energy and the development of civilization diseases. Altitude training increases the sensitivity of the cell membrane and allows the normal transfer of oxygen from the blood to the cell.

Z

HEART PROTECTION

It has been proven that there is a lower mortality rate among people living at high altitudes than those on or near the sea level. When the body is adapted and more effectively uses an oxygen, the pressure on the heart is reduced, the most important engine of our organism, which thus remains vital for longer.

Z

IMPROVED CELL FUNCTION

Altitude training stimulates the body, cells become more susceptible to oxygen and glucose and more effective in the removal of waste metabolic products.

BENEFITS OF ALTITUDE TRAINING FOR HEALTH

REDUCTION OF BLOOD PRESSURE

All participants in IHT altitude training detected a lower heart rate and blood pressure.

SUCCESSFUL HEALLING OF ASTHMA

It has been scientifically proven to help in the treatment of asthma.

REDUCTION THE LEVEL  OF CHOLESTEROL

After completing IHT therapy, total cholesterol was lowered. An additional improvement occurred after 3 months. The value has been maintained for 6 months. The levels of HDL and LDL cholesterol decreased and maintained even after 6 months.

INCREASED INSULIN SENSITIVITY

Hypoxia improves the regulation of the GLUT1, glucose receptor in the cell, while the glucose transfer system in muscle remains untouched.

IMPROVED MOOD AND SERENITY

  • Significant increases in the levels of hormone serotonin and dopamine (a hormone that is responsible for good mood and serenity)
  • Increasing the blood vessel density in the cerebral cortex and the hippocampus by the emergence of new blood vessels and the expansion of capillaries.
  • The result of new blood vessels is the reduction of the inner distance between the blood vessels.
  • Improved glucose transfer by increasing glucose transporter 1 – GLUT1. The food that the brain needs to function.
  • Protecting the brain against oxidative stress
  • Improving sleep
  • Improving concentration 

 

INCREASING FERTILITY

Altitude training and its use in the treatment of many diseases has been the subject of numerous research and tests done in Russia and the former Soviet Union countries. Based on a successful experiment where 48 women out of 49 became pregnant, the Gynecology started to be interested in altitude training, both treatment and prevention. This enabled collaboration in the introduction of this method also in other areas of health medicine.

Improve fitness and never be breathless

FITNESS 

Today, there is no athlete with a world record, who would not used an altitude training, which is now available to everyone, not just top athletes. Less physical fitness, more progress will be observed and the greater will be results.

Altitude training as a form of high impact workout works similarly to lifting weights. When working with weights, the body adapts to a greater load and overcomes it over time. Altitude training works in a similar way.

The body tries to adapt to an environment with less oxygen and throught time become more efficient in the use of available oxygen, all the way to the cellular level. The resulting physiological changes are those that allow top athletes to reach a world record, alpinists, to climb higher, even without the use of additional oxygen and people with an unhealthy lifestyle or sickness, to regain full physical fitness and health.

As exercise improves general health, altitude training works on internal processes and restores the balance in the body.
By using altitude training, you will see visible progress in:

  • endurance
  • recovery
  • power and speed
  • losing weight

HOW TO USE ALTITUDE TRAINING

To improve fitness we recommend all three methods.

ALTITUDE EXERCISE

  • Shorter workout for a half
  • Double calorie consumption
  • Try a whole new way of exercising
    Train on a bike, treadmill or some other cardio ergometer with altitude mask or in altitude chamber and in a moment you will be on simulated altitude, for example. 3.500 meters above sea level, at your home or in the gym. In addition to top athletes around the globe, altitude training is also used by military to increase endurance. For maximum effect, do two or three moderate intensity altitude exercises per week.

IHT – INTERMITTENT HYPOXIC TRAINING / THERAPY

  • Strengthen your health and fitness while sitting.

  • Without any physical activity (exercise at the cellular level with physiological adaptation)

  • Can be done at work or at home

  • Extremely effective way to improve fitness
    In comfortable position ,lying or sitting, user alternately breathes altitude and room air through the mask according to the protocol received when purchase the altitude system. This method speeds up adaptation in the body, the protocol is not exhausting and no physical activity is required. The effect of an adaptation process lasts 15 days. Benefits last up to 3 months, maintaining them with 5-days repetitions.

SLEEPING AT ALTITUDE

Strengthen your health and fitness while sleeping. Sleep in the moderate altitude as long as you can, according to the protocol received when purchase the altitude system. . It is recommended for at least 8 hours per night in the order of 3 weeks for optimum effect.

PHYSIOLOGICAL EFFECTS OF ALTITUDE TRAINING FOR FITNESS

Z

IMPROVED PULMONARY FUNCTION

IHT affects on the release of smooth muscles that surround bronchioles in the lungs and on the development of cellular structures in these tissues, improves the response to glucose and oxygen, and thus ensures their optimal functioning. Intermittent Hypoxic Training / Therapy allows the body to use the part of the lungs that receives the most oxygen. People who are breathing too fast, tend to use only the upper part of the lungs and thus exhale carbon dioxide that would allow the release of oxygen from the blood.

Z

IMPROVED OXYGEN TRANSMISSION

When you adjust to air with less oxygen, two things happen:

  1. Oxygen transfer to muscle improves
  2. The use of oxygen becomes more effective, so less air needed for muscle work

The result is increased muscular endurance and improved aerobic capacity, which means that you can withstand longer and more intensive exercises.

Z

IMPROVED BRAIN BLOOD CIRCULATION

Physiological adaptation improves the transmission of oxygen to the liver, the sexual organs and the brain. In the brain, the following positive effects are detected:

  • Protecting the brain against oxidative stress
  • Improving sleep
  • Improving the concentration
  • Increasing blood vessel density in the cerebral cortex, in the inner part of front brain and the hippocampus (controlling learning and memory) by the emergence of new blood vessels and the expansion of capillaries.
  • The result of new blood vessels is the reduction of the inner distance between the blood vessels.
  • Reducing the number and intensity of headaches.
  • Improved glucose transfer by increasing glucose transporter 1 – GLUT1 which mean more food for brain.
  • Significant increases in the levels of hormone serotonin and dopamine (a hormone that is responsible for well-being and a sense of serenity)

BENEFITS OF ALTITUDE TRAINING FOR FITNESS

MORE VITALITY

This is the fastest way to improve your fitness and vitality. The worse is your physical fitness, more progress you will be noticed and the greater will be results.

POSITIVE ATTITUDE AND MIND FOCUS

The feeling that you are in good physical condition and good health greatly affects on your general well-being. Not only your body will be strengthened, it will also be your spirit. After the exercise you will feel focused, relaxed and calm.

LESS BREATHLESSNESS

You will notice a change in the gym, fitness, golf course or simply climbing the stairs.

Improve your body metabolism, lose weight and keep your body weight ideal

SLIMMING

Our way of breathing has a significant effect on our weight. In Physiological effects, it is described how with altitude training you can achieve more effective breathing and how the one affects on weight loss. For those who want to improve their health and lose weight, we recommend Intermittent Hypoxic Training – IHT or low intensity exercise at simulated altitude. IHT significantly increases the growth hormone in the body, which is directly related to weight loss. Like movement improves general health, so altitude training works on internal processes. It restores the balance in the body, which has been broken through the uncontrolled stress of our everyday life.

Who can benefits from altitude training :

  • People who want to lose body weight and permanently preserve the results
  • Everyone who wants to improve physical fitness and strengthen health

You will notice:

  • loss of body weight (reduction of fat and water retention)
  • improved blood circulation
  • reduction of cellulite
  • increased motivation
  • improved breathing process

PHYSIOLOGICAL EFFECTS OF ALTITUDE TRAINING FOR SLIMMING

Z

METABOLISM

In the body, oxygen changes consumed food into energy. When you become more effective in the use of oxygen, you also improve your metabolism. 70% of the metabolism is designed to body stay alive. It is called the basal metabolism and indicates the energy consumption at rest.

By improving basal metabolism, we strongly impact on weight loss. Our biggest energy reserves are hidden in fat and with effective metabolism the body will choose fat as a source of energy.

We can determine on the base of metabolism whether the person will gain weight or lose weight. Slender people use fat effectively even at rest. Overweight, however, consume large amounts of carbohydrates and store fat as a stock. The body has a limited amount of carbohydrates, so these people often feel a great desire for food rich in carbohydrates, or sugar and starch, which leads to a weight gain again.

Z

HOW DOES BREATHING ALTITUDE AIR IMPROVE BODY METABOLISM?

At the case of cellular breathing, with the help of oxygen, food changes into energy. Improved use of oxygen improves food metabolism.
How does IHT work to person to lose weight effectively?
  • Improves metabolism
  • Improves aerobic function
  • Works diuretically and thus reduces water retention in the body
  • Increased calorie consumption
  • Reduces appetite
  • Reduces lust for food
  • Reduces cellulite
  • Long- lasting effect
Z

IMPROVING BODY METABOLISM AT REST

In an effective body metabolism, the ratio between fat and carbohydrates, which changes in to energy, is optimal. At aerobic cell respiration, the body uses oxygen to convert food into energy. Large amounts of energy can only be stored in the form of fat. If metabolism is effective, moderate physical activity is sufficient to melt fat reserves. By improving the aerobic function with IHT, you will consume a much more fat compared to carbohydrates. You will have more energy and your body will consume more fat than before.

Z

IMPROVED AEROBIC FUNCTION

Healthy people gain 93% of energy on aerobic way, the rest is anaerobic or no oxygen. Ineffective breathing can reduce the amount of energy from aerobic way on just 84%. Anaerobic energy production is less effective, with lactic acid being formed. Over an extended period of time, an excessive amount of lactic acid has an adverse effect on body cells.

Z

DIURETIC EFFECT REDUCES WATER IN THE BODY

Breathing the altitude – hypoxic air works diuretic. For cells, this is a very difficult task, but because it does not include physical exercise, you will not notice this, and while your cells “exercise” eliminate toxins from your body just like at physical exercise. You will only notice that you need to go to the toilet more often than usual. With altitude training the cells regain elasticity and balance with less unnecessary liquids and improved content of oxygen.

Z

MORE CALORIES CONSUMPTION

In physical exercise, you actually spend more calories as if you just sitting and breathing altitude air. Your body works more intense, but not on the muscle level, but at the cellular level. The activity of mitochondria, which plays an important role in the formation of energy, affects metabolic disorders, including obesity.

Z

APPETITE REDUCTION

Numerous studies have shown that by staying on high altitude, a person reduces body weight, fat tissue, as well as non-fat tissue. Weight loss is largely due to a sense of satiety that links to raised leptin level, which is a key mediator in neuroendocrinal regulation of food intake, or simply you do not feel hunger.

Z

REDUCED FOOD CRAVING

There are many people who satisfy different needs with food and not just the need for food. Some eat because they are bored, others from dissatisfaction or other emotional states. IHT stimulates the formation of serotonin and dopamine, a hormone that is responsible for calmness and good mood. This feeling helps to replace food. When you are happy, you do not crave for anything.

Z

CELLULITE REDUCTION

Cellulite is a result of an excessive amount of body fat and poor circulation. Studies have shown that, following the recommended IHT altitude training, a significant improvement appears in blood circulation, including increased capillary density which helps to transfer more oxygen to the body cells.

Z

LONG LASTING EFFECT

At the end of altitude training sessions, your breathing will be more effective, your body metabolism will improve and its impact will last for a long time. The effects will be greater if you later include physical activity in your lifestyle and so immediately check the improved blood and respiratory system.

BENEFITS OF ALTITUDE TRAINING FOR SLIMMING

WEIGHT LOSS

With IHT training you will end up with a vicious circle of extra kilos. With improved body metabolism, exercise and enhanced health, you start a successful cycle. Feel the pleasure of your progress and the visible results. In the next few months, you will still notice a loss of weight on the basis of improved metabolism. It is recommended to increase the effect of physical activity and a healthy diet.

CELLULITE REDUCTION 

You will notice a change in skin tone very quickly but it will take several weeks for the new blood capillaries be created. They will improve the blood circulation of the affected tissue, reduce fat tissue, and you will notice a noticeable decrease in cellulite.

REDUCED WATER RETENTION

During a 3-week altitude training, you will notice a decrease in body weight, especially in body extents.
Improved metabolism effects on the body cells, which are therefore less swollen because they effectively remove excess liquid. You will notice that due to increased detoxification you will often go to the toilet.

REDUCED HUNGER

With improved fitness and general well-being you will notice a lower need for food. The energy level and the feeling of well being will improve. You will notice a loss of kilograms very quickly.
