    Anyone know of supplements to aid endurance athletes, and specifically high altitude endurance athletes?

    Someone has suggested Ginkgo Biloba to ward off Acute Mountain sickness. Of course there are the drugs people take (and must have with them) for emergencies, or prevention like Diamox, etc. I don't mean those. I know about those. And I don't mean Winny or Test (east german olympic style) or EPO either.

    I mean supplements.

    Ceaze?
