Black sugar can help avoid high altitude illness
Tibet is the highest region in the world and high altitude illness caused by high altitude has always been the most concerned issue for those who want to travel to Tibet. In this article, I’d like to tell you that black sugar can help avoid high altitude illness effectively.
Scientific researchers of former Soviet Union Tadzhikistan Mountain Institute, through research, has found that black sugar has pretty good effect on preventing high altitude illness. Those who go to a place with an altitude of more than 3600m can almost avoid high altitude illness by having 30g black sugar each day. While, those who don’t have black sugar or only have fine white sugar have a much higher risk of high altitude illness. The scientific researchers believe that there might be comparatively more active substances in black sugar which make it pretty effective on strengthening people’s ability to guard against high altitude illness.
So, try some black sugar if you are disturbed by high altitude illness in Tibet. You can take it with you from your home, or you can buy some in Lhasa, capital city of Tibet.
